What Are Adhesives and Repair Materials?

Adhesives are substances that bond objects to each other. Most adhesives work by applying a sticky liquid to the surface to be bonded and allowing the other side to dry and solidify, making it impossible to separate.

Different types of adhesives can bond to a limited number of materials and can differ in the temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions in which they can be used, so it is necessary to select the appropriate adhesive. Paint is sometimes considered a type of adhesive because it adheres to one side of the surface.

Repair materials are used in much the same way as adhesives, but they are used not only to bond objects together, but also to fill holes and dents. For example, they are used to repair scratches and dents on a car, or when wallpaper peels off or a wall cracks in a house.

Types of Adhesives

1. Woodworking Bonding

The material that can be used for woodworking bonding is wood. It is easy to handle, but it is soft and semi-solid after drying, and the adhesive itself will tear and come off if it is pulled with all your might. It is not suitable for parts that require strength.

2. Instant Adhesives

There are many types of instant adhesives available. Since they harden in just a few seconds, care must be taken when handling it. If your finger gets stuck during handling, use a release agent to carefully peel it off instead of forcing it off and causing damage to your skin.

Types of Repair Materials

1. Silicone

Silicone is often used to prevent gaps in situations where liquid leaks from gaps in the cover and to prevent leakage. It is also used to prevent the entry of liquid, as opposed to leaking.

Another type of silicone is a repair material called caulking material, which is used to attach peeling wallpaper and fill gaps in walls. It is a gel-like liquid that hardens to a rubbery consistency when dry. It is not very strong and should be handled with care. 

2. Putty

Putty is a repair material used to fill gaps or add thickness to repair scratches and dents. It is clay-like and solidifies as it dries.
