Polyurethane
Urea resin glue
(1 part)
Urea resin glue
(2 part)
Applications
glue smallbullet best used for rapidly bonding small wood and nonwood workpieces.
glue smallbullet not as effective when bonding highly porous materials or large surface areas.
glue smallbullet sensitive to joint surface conditions like pH, moisture and grime.
glue smallbullet waterproof exterior timber;
glue smallbullet marine wood bonding;
glue smallbullet bent laminating and veneering;
glue smallbullet sealing;
glue smallbullet topcoating;
glue smallbullet casting;
glue smallbullet embedding.
glue smallbullet water-resistant exterior wood bonding;
glue smallbullet laminating and veneering;
glue smallbullet bonding nonwood materials;
glue smallbullet develops full strength only in well-fit, tightly clamped joints;
glue smallbullet modern formulas cure faster than the older ones.
glue smallbullet exterior wood bonding;
glue smallbullet bent laminating and veneering;
glue smallbullet pressing plastic laminate;
glue smallbullet one-part ureas tend to be easier and less hazardous to use than two-part ureas.
glue smallbullet exterior wood bonding;
glue smallbullet bent laminating and veneering;
glue smallbullet pressing plastic laminate;
glue smallbullet two-part ureas have better performance and cured properties than one part.
