There are certain principles that apply when choosing an adhesive.
First of all, it is necessary to consider whether the adhesive is needed for indoor or outdoor use, whether it must be moisture-proof, and what temperatures it must be able to withstand. Another important factor is the properties of the material: porosity, flexibility, dimensions and shape. Porous surfaces include wood, concrete, building board, plasterboard, and stone, while among non-porous materials are plastics, glass, various rubbers and metals.
Most general construction adhesives are suitable for use on porous surfaces, while hybrid or epoxy adhesives are best for non-porous surfaces. A good adhesive bond is ensured by the proper preparation of the undersurface and by following the basic rules for application. If necessary, the element being glued must be supported until the adhesive hardens. When joining together two very different materials, an elastic adhesive should be used that can withstand the movement of the materials. In the case of rigid materials, a rigid adhesive can be used.
The Wolf Group product range covers all major application areas. In the case of simpler applications, such as the installation of moldings, it is not necessary to choose the most expensive product, a more affordable acrylic adhesive is sufficient.
For more demanding applications, a suitable range of hybrid adhesives is available.
