GLUES AND ADHESIVES

These are some of the glues and adhesives that have been used to bond SHOCKtec padding to other materials. Some glues and adhesives react differently to different materials. They should be tested on a small portion of the materials first and used according to the manufacturer requirements. It may be necessary to test a number of glues to find the one that works best for you. If you have any question concerning glues and adhesives contact SHOCKtec Inc. at 704-663-5678.

1. Ortec by Renia - Polychloroprene cement for bonding many materials used by orthopaedic shoe technicians, pedorthists and foot orthotists. Not for PVC. Free of Toluene 10 to 40 min set time

2. Lord Glue #7650 from Lord Corporation 877-275-5673 ext 3228 ask for local distributor.

3. Hi-Tack - Glycerine Ester glue, it also has hexane and acetone (buffing agent) that will breakdown the surface of smooth materials before bonding. 15 to 30 min set time.

4. Super Glue - Ethyl Cyanoacrylate glue. Set time 2 to 5 min.

5. Gorilla Glue - Polyurethane glue. Set time 2 to 5 hrs

6. Bond 527 Multi Purpose Cement. Set time 2 to 24 hrs.

7. 3M High Strength 90 Spray Adhesive - Dimethyl Ether, Methyl Acetate. Set time 5 min. to 2 hrs. depending on material
