SCIGRIP® Solvent Based, Assembly Adhesives

Solvent based, assembly adhesives used to bond popular plastics for sign and POP applications

Solvent based adhesives generally offer low viscosity with many being clear. As a result, they are used widely in sign and point-of-purchase (POP) applications. Due to their low viscosity, they can often be applied at the edge and will wick into the joint by capillary action.

Solvent based adhesives are often used to bond popular plastics such as:
•    Acrylic
•    Polycarbonate
•    Polystyrene
•    PETG
•    ABS
•    PVC
•    Butyrate and polyurethane
