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

| | Leave a Comment

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.

The two types of bonding – Physical and chemical

When forming bonds with adhesive, it is not as straightforward as the adhesive just sticking two materials together. Depending on the materials being bonded, the adhesive will form bonds using a combination of two different mechanisms: physical bonding and chemical bonding. While both are important, these bonds operate in different ways, each with its own […]

Tecbond 213 – The economical all-purpose adhesive

When working with hot melts, there are many specialised grades that focus on specific bonding requirements or are formulated to meet an industry standard. Tecbond 213, however, is the best-selling general-purpose grade thanks to its ability to provide solid, long-lasting bonds on a wide variety of materials while also being extremely cost-effective. What is tecbond […]

Tecbond polyamide adhesives: Everything you need to know

Polyamide adhesives are a unique subset of hot melt adhesives, providing distinct properties that set them apart from other forms of hot melt. Unlike conventional EVA or metallocene-based hot melts, polyamides offer a combination of tensile strength, high-temperature resistance, and strong adhesion to a wide range of substrates. They are used in a wider variety […]
