Solvent-Based Adhesives: Dispelling the Myths

Solvent-based adhesives – what are they?

Solvent-based adhesives are industrial adhesives that use solvents as a carrier for the resin. They are quite versatile and can be used across any industry, in many different applications. They are very high performance and are great on lamination applications, and for bonding difficult-to-bond substrates.

We hear a lot of questions as to solvent-based adhesives, with users wondering what’s fact and what’s fiction about these types of adhesives. So we’re here to bust the myths!

  • All solvent based adhesives are bad for you – myth

  • All solvent based adhesives are flammable – myth

  • All solvent based adhesives are bad for the environment – myth

  • Solvent based adhesives are fast – truth

  • Solvent based adhesives are strong – truth

Solvent-based adhesives are quite easy to use, and can be sprayed, brushed, roll-coated or extruded, depending on your application. They are very quick-drying and can withstand a high range of temperatures, delivering a strong and dependable bond. Some can be flammable, or may have a high odor, but with adequate ventilation and the correct safety precautions taken, can be a great solution to your adhesive challenges!
