There are numerous reasons why you have to use an adhesive accelerator especially when using adhesives that do not cure faster. The main benefit is that it increases the curing speed of the adhesive. This means that instead of having to wait for several hours for the adhesive to dry, you can reduce this time exponentially. In a manufacturing process, this will save time and increase the rate of production. When you are joining huge parts and it is not possible to hold them until curing is done, you can use the accelerator to cure the adhesive immediately. This will eliminate the need to use nails and other weld parts together with the adhesives.
You do not require any special skills to be able to apply an adhesive accelerator. This is because they come in liquid form and can be sprayed easily on the adhesive. You can also use a brush to apply it on the bonding surface. There are manufacturers and suppliers who supply the accelerator with a spraying kit or a brush to make it easier for you to apply it. The color of the accelerator is usually transparent to reduce the risk of staining the materials. It will only become whitish where it interacts with the adhesive and the other parts will evaporate.
Bonded joints are normally weakened by conditions such as high humidity and temperature fluctuations. The advantage of using an adhesive accelerator is that it is more resistant to these conditions. You have to ensure that you always use the right accelerator for the operation that you are performing. It is recommended that you use adhesives and accelerators made by the same companies. This removes issues associated with compatibility across different manufacturers leading to unwanted results.
