An adhesive accelerator can confuse you with cyanoacrylate adhesives. Accelerators can't stick together two parts on their own and can only work in conjunction with a cyanoacrylate adhesive application. Learn more about their advantages here.
What Are Cyanoacrylate Accelerators?
Cyanoacrylate accelerators are substances that make it easier to use cyanoacrylate for sealing, gluing, and sticking, especially when time is of the essence.
There are two types of accelerators: fast-drying and slow-drying. The difference between the two is the time it takes for the cyanoacrylate to dry. For example, fast-drying accelerators take five minutes to dry, whereas slow-drying accelerators take 30 minutes to dry. Both introduce an exceptional binding between two different materials.
What Are Cyanoacrylates in The First Place?
Cyanoacrylate is a chemical compound that is used in many industrial processes. It is an important building block of polymers, known as poly-cyanoacrylate, which is used in adhesives, sealants, coatings, and other products.
Cyanoacrylates are also used in many other products, including superglues, paint removers, and methacrylate nails.
Applications of cyanoacrylates include:
1. Resins: these can be used in a variety of engineering and industrial applications, such as to make things like ball bearings.
2. Composite materials: these are used to make things like airplane wings and boat hulls.
3. Paint: uses include interior and exterior paint, vehicle body parts, and signs
What Are the Advantages of Adhesive Accelerators?
An adhesive accelerator speeds up the curing and drying process of cyanoacrylates. In doing so, they can create virtually indestructible weather-proof finishes.
Cyanoacrylates don't work well in low-humidity environments because they absorb air moisture to bond to their substrate. With accelerators, it has enough moisture and can speed up the process.
Speedy and Lasting Manufacturing
An adhesive accelerator creates high-quality bonds that speed up the drying process and last much more than just cyanoacrylate applications alone.
