Tecbond 240 – The colourful all-purpose adhesive for the hobby and craft industry

Tecbond 240 is a versatile and cost-effective all-purpose adhesive designed to provide tough, long-lasting bonds on a wide variety of materials, including wood, paper, card, light-gauge metals, and many plastics.

Typically used in the hobby, craft, and educational industries, tecbond 240 is a clear adhesive that can be pigmented almost any colour. Not only does this enable it to be used as a decorative material as well as an adhesive, but it also allows customers to match colours to their projects or brands.

Tecbond 240’s molten tack ensures that bonding is almost instantaneous with a sufficient working time so that substrates can be adjusted and repositioned for a short period after initial compression. To complement this, the adhesives’ ample open time enables users to spend more time positioning materials before compression.

The adhesive’s formulation also means it can be used with both hot and low melt applicators. Applying at the highest temperature maximises the adhesive’s bond strength and reduces viscosity, resulting in tighter joints between substrates. Applying at lower temperatures enables tecbond 240 to be used on heat-sensitive substrates without the risk of damage.

Available in 7mm, 12mm, and 15mm sticks as well as 43mm slugs, the adhesive works best with the range of tec bead applicators. All adhesives and applicators from Power Adhesives are designed to work in tandem with each other to achieve the highest output and best possible performance for the user.

Tecbond 240, like all adhesives in the range, is non-toxic, with no organic solvents or airborne particles released during the application process. The adhesive also has a near-unlimited shelf life and produces no waste material. Any unused adhesive left in the applicator can simply be remelted the next time the device is switched on.
