Tecbond 280 – The adjustable adhesive for construction and product assembly

This month, we’re looking at tecbond 280; a long open-time construction and product assembly adhesive.

Based on up-to-the-minute raw material technology, tecbond 280 has been designed to have a longer working time than other construction adhesives.

This means that, after initial compression, the parts can be adjusted for up to three minutes before the adhesive sets to form an ultra-strong bond. This makes tecbond 280 ideal for applications where the materials may need to be repositioned for a short time after the initial bond is made.

Along with its ample working time, super-strong tecbond 280 provides a solid, yet flexible bond down to temperatures as low as -20°C. This flexibility allows for movement of the materials (for example, thermal expansion of flooring), without compromising the strength of the bond.

The adhesive provides excellent adhesion to wood, metal, glass, ceramics, concrete, and most plastics. Tecbond 280 can be used on difficult-to-bond materials such as heat-sensitive plastics due to its ability to be applied at lower temperatures when using a low melt glue gun (use with a hot melt gun for maximum adhesion).

Tecbond 280 is available in both 12mm sticks and 43mm slugs and, as with all tecbond adhesives, it’s designed to work in tandem with the tec range of corded and cordless bead application glue guns.

With its extremely long shelf life and clean running capabilities, tecbond 280 creates practically zero wastage. It’s non-toxic, doesn’t require any mixing, isn’t messy to apply, and doesn’t need to dry out over a long period of time. Any unused glue left in the applicator can be re-melted and used next time the gun is switched on.

Three advantages of using hot melt adhesives for woodworking

The tecbond range of adhesives features many grades suitable for woodworking applications, with some specializing in bonding specific types of wood. Compared to traditional water-based or polyurethane wood glues, tecbond hot melt adhesives offer users a simple and effective solution to common bonding problems raised by woodworking applications. Setting times Most forms of wood glue, […]

Tecbond 267W – The solution to bonding polyolefin plastics

Polyolefin plastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene have always proven difficult to bond. Many adhesives are unable to effectively wet the surface of these plastics to form a chemical bond, or to penetrate the polymer chains to form a physical bond. Tecbond 267W is a white, polymer-based hot melt adhesive designed to bond polyolefin plastics […]
