Types of glue

Super glue - Also known as cyanoacrylate adhesives are a fast-acting and strong glue supplied in a liquid or gel form. Cyanoacrylate is a type of resin that bonds almost immediately when it comes into contact with water. Practically any surface that you want to glue has trace amounts of water on the surface, while some water is present in the air. Superglue can be used in practically any environment or industry, is it also incredibly helpful for hobbyists.

Glue Sticks - Glue sticks or slugs can also be known as hot-melt adhesive (HMA) and are used with hot melt glue guns which heat up the stick until it becomes viscous and by squeezing the gun trigger, molten glue is applied to the surface. The glue will cool and solidify in a matter of seconds and are usually fully cured within 1 minute. The sticks can be used to bond a number of different materials including paper, cardboard, ceramics, glass, metal, plastic, rubber or wood and are especially suited to gap-filling applications. Available in a range of colours and diameters to suit the application and the hot melt glue gun being used.

PVA Glue - Also known as white glue, wood glue or school glue, (polyvinyl acetate adhesive) are synthetic rubbery polymers used for bonding purposes, it is a type of thermoplastic. PVA contains no hazardous chemicals, does not produce fumes and is water-soluble so is very safe to use an can easily be cleaned up. Suitable for many materials including paper, cardboard, fabric, leather, wood, chipboard and plastic.

Glue Dots - are an easy to use pressure sensitive adhesive used for bonding small items. The double-sided glue dots bond instantly, create less mess and residue than liquid glues, such as polyurethane glues, and cause less waste. Acid free glue dots can be used on most surfaces such as paper, wood. plastic and foams.
