Construction adhesives act as alternatives to traditional adhesives such as traditional physical fixings in the form of nails and screws, and contact cements and wood glues. Construction adhesives are usually used for construction, renovation and finishing of homes. They are broadly classified into four different product segments: water borne, solvent borne, reactive, and others. Construction adhesives are generally available in cans, squeeze tubes, and caulking tubes. They dry within 24 hours. Construction adhesives tend to remain flexible even after drying; moreover, they are waterproof. Thus, these properties tend to differentiate construction adhesive from traditional adhesives. Construction adhesives are preferred for a wide range of applications in the construction industry due to their varied properties.
Construction adhesives are applied either in full coverage or beads. Full coverage is used where the material to be glued is small, such as floor tiles or ceramic tiles, or where an absolutely solid surface is required, which includes virtually all flooring applications with the exception of carpet over padding and some types of vinyl flooring. Beads are lines of adhesive that are applied to a surface with a caulking gun. This is the one of the most cost-effective use of construction adhesives and is usually used for the gluing of large, flat materials to large, flat surfaces. Some uses for the bead method are in attaching drywall to studs, wood paneling to any smooth wall, etc. Proper selection of construction adhesives is extremely vital for successful application as construction adhesives.
