Neoprene adhesive is a one-part polychloroprene-based adhesive which is dissolved in various organic solvents (acetone, alcohol, ethers, esters) or in water (to produce a water-based adhesive).
Neoprene adhesive transforms into an adhesive film once the solvents have evaporated. This evaporation time varies depending on the type of solvent used. The adhesive can be applied either to both substrates (double-spread bonding) or to just one of the substrates to be bonded.
Neoprene one-part adhesives are suited to assembling a wide range of substrates, such as wood, metal, glass, ceramics, cork, rigid PVC, leather, rubber, etc. They are less well suited to plastic substrates, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and flexible PVC.
