    You should search for some information when you choose a suitable PUR Adhesive for the work because there are a lot of types available in the market. There are quite a number of issues that you will be obligated to consider if the right choice is to be made.

    The Type of Adhesive You Are Working With

    White Glue

    Also known as polyvinyl acetate (PVA).

    A non-waterproof adhesive used mostly for interior woodworking jobs where a waterproof joint is not required.

    Usually packaged in plastic squeeze bottles, these inexpensive, milky-white glues dry clear and are fast setting.

    It is widely used to bond paper, fabric, cardboard, cork and leather, as well as wood.

    Can withstand a moderate amount of strain and cleans up easily with soap and water.

    Instant-Setting Glue

    Also called Super Glue (cyanoacrylates), this glue creates a strong, instant bond with a small amount of glue.

    Regular cyanoacrylates will bond almost all non-porous materials such as ceramic, some plastics, rubber, metal or synthetics.

    Comes in gel form.

    Should be handled with extreme care and kept off of skin.

    Epoxy

    One of the strongest adhesives known, epoxy is designed primarily for the bonding of non-porous surfaces, but can also be used effectively on wood.

    Available in clear, white or metallic finish.

    Most epoxies come in two parts, a resin and a hardener (or “catalyst”) which must be mixed together before the adhesive is used.

    Once mixed, the material will set permanently in a specified length of time—most will permanently bond, even under water.

    The bond will withstand most solvents when curing is complete.

    It is good for sealing gaps and will withstand vibration and shock.

    It can be used on pipes, radiators, wood, metal, ceramic tile, china, marble, glass and masonry.

    Since epoxy is toxic and flammable, use extreme caution when handling.
