Characteristics and application of Moment epoxy glue
Currently, epoxy types of glue are widely used in construction. They can be purchased at almost any hardware store. This article will consider the properties of epoxy glue "Moment".
All epoxy adhesives are two-component plastic substances. One component for such compositions is epoxy resin. The second component is a special amine hardener. Also, they contain fillers (powdered elements, carbon and synthetic fibers) and modifying additives.
Glue "Moment" is used for sealing, installation, bonding of objects made from the following materials:
- metal and metal alloys;
Two-component glue brand "Moment" is currently available in several varieties. So, often in the building stores you can see the sample "Super Epoxy Transparent." This epoxy is universal and is not subject to expansion at the time of solidification. In addition, the model is durable and is not affected by various oils and water.
Often in stores you can find a sample of epoxy glue "Super Epoxy Metal". This glue is capable of firmly sticking together products made from different metals and alloys. It can be used for both external and internal work. Often this composition is used to bond other materials (wood, marble, stone).
The next model is "Super Epoxy Formula 1". This adhesive mass provides ultra-fast bonding of products consisting of any materials. This composition is sold in a package that is produced in the form of a syringe having a special nozzle-mixer. This allows you to properly dose the substance and evenly cover them with material.
Sample "Super Epoxy Formula 5" Today is also often used in construction works. Like the previous model, this glue is produced in a special syringe with a nozzle-mixer, which allows you to easily mix the components of the composition. This substance is completely cured within 5 minutes. And after 8 hours, it can even be drilled and ground if necessary.
Glue "Super Epoxy" can be called a universal mass for gluing different materials together.
Experts say that this substance is able to quickly and firmly connect any surface.
This model is represented by a putty, which has a cylindrical shape, in which, under the visible element from the outside, there is another element that is necessary for hardening.
Currently, many consumers use glue for construction work. "Epoxy Mini". This tool is available in compact packaging (6 ml). Often it is used for the restoration of various products. This composition is a special putty in portion packaging and hardens within just 10 minutes after application to the material.
Many people prefer glue "Epoxyline 2 in 1". It has the form of putty in a cylindrical package, each of them contains 48 g of the composition. In each sample, under the first outer component is another component that is needed for solidification. Both of these substances should be carefully kneaded by hands and mixed, then they will react. Often this composition is used for sealing defects.
Model "Epoxy Metal" designed for durable, reliable bonding of various metals and alloys. It is also represented by putty in a cylindrical package. Often such glue is used to complete the missing elements. After all, it can be given almost any shape.
Glue "Epoxy Duin" It is a special gray plasticine. It is used both for gluing different materials, and in order to complete the necessary details (table corners). This substance dries after 5 minutes after its application, and after 15 minutes it acquires excellent strength. As a rule, it is sold in a package of 2 x 25.2 x 50 mm.
Advantages and disadvantages
Adhesive mass "moment" has a number of important positive qualities:
- good resistance to physical and chemical effects (hardened glue can be polished, drilled, covered with building mixtures, while it will not collapse);
- universality, since almost all models of this composition can be used for bonding any materials;
- strength (often seam with such glue is compared in strength with welding);
- convenience, as any person will be able to measure the required amount of substance, while the remnants of the mixture will not need special storage conditions.
Despite such a rather big list of advantages, Moment epoxy glue has some drawbacks:
- toxicity (when working with such glue, it is necessary to take all precautions, because this composition in liquid form is toxic);
- low level of efficiency (many people believe that the price of such a product is too high; in addition, in their opinion, there is an insufficient amount of glue in the packaging, so they often have to buy additional formulations)
To date, on the Internet, you can see a considerable amount of consumer feedback on epoxy compositions "Moment". So, many users write that this glue hardens quickly. Although the instructions say that it should dry out after 5-10 minutes, the substance hardens much faster. Also, some buyers point out that for such a two-component adhesive do not need to calculate the proportions, because it is already all divided into portions in the package.
Many people notice that the epoxy glue of this manufacturer perfectly glues any parts together., the connection of objects is durable. Also, some experts and customers write that the seam with this glue remains transparent, so it looks neat and almost does not stand out.
But at the same time, some people point out several shortcomings of the two-component Moment glue. So, consumers have paid attention to the fact that working with such compounds requires special safety compliance, since they are toxic in the liquid state. In addition, most buyers said about the overestimated cost of the substance.
