Profile Synthetic rubber adhesive is such adhesive, which is produced synthetically by using synthetic rubber as basic raw material with other chemicals in the weight basis as proportionately. Polychloroprenes is the basis for one of the largest and most important groups of rubber adhesives. Neoprene polychloroprene is an extremely versatile synthetic rubber with more than 75 years of proven performance in a broad industry spectrum. It was originally developed as an oil resistant substitute for natural rubber. There are basically two types of adhesives: resin based and gum-based. The main application areas of the product are furniture, construction, paints and stationery. A Balanced Combination of Properties: â€¢ Resists degradation from sun, ozone and weather â€¢ Performs well in contact with oils and many chemicals â€¢ Remains useful over a wide temperature range â€¢ Displays outstanding physical toughness â€¢ Resists burning inherently better than exclusively hydrocarbon rubbers â€¢ Outstanding resistance to damage caused by flexing and twisting Application Polychloroprene adhesives enjoy a pre eminent position as an elastomeric binder at the expense of other less costly materials, e.g. natural rubber and SBR, primarily because of early bond strength development, bonding range, high ultimate strength and creep resistance, adhesion to many surfaces, durability, flexibility, chemical resistance, and resistance burning. Four important applications for polychloroprene contact adhesive are bonding of high pressure plastic laminates, automotive adhesives, shoe adhesive and adhesives for construction industry. Shoes have long been a major consumer of these adhesives, particularly for the permanent attaching shoe soles. The original adhesives for the soles attaching were based on nitrocellulose, but polychloropreneâ€™s rapid development of bond strength has since allowed it to dominate this field. Neoprene cement glue is used to bond leather, crepe, rubber, thermal plastic rubber, polyurethane, wood and plywood, paper, and thermal plastic polyurethane. Since shoes come in a variety of materials, this all-purpose glue is ideal. It is often used in shoe repair because of its strong bonding capability, fast drying time and non-corrosion on the gluing surface. This glue works best for repair of rubber soles but is also used for other shoe materials. Market The global adhesives and sealants market is driven by many factors such as its broad spectrum of applications in different industries. The market size has also increased due to the growing demand for adhesives and sealants in Asia Pacific. The ever increasing need for high standard performance across all modern applications is driving the growth of adhesives and sealants. On account of new technological developments, more niche applications for adhesives and sealants are being explored for meeting consumerâ€™s demand, this has also presented new opportunities to manufacturers and also helped in increasing the penetration of adhesives and sealants in new applications.
