wicked. at least you've built a robot
is at as good as contact adhesive or super glue, or does it just depend on the material its used on?
Hi,Quote from: Joesavage1 on February 08, 2009, 08:12:41 AMis at as good as contact adhesive or super glue, or does it just depend on the material its used on?Bonding technology is a hugely wide subject.Contact glue is not a single product, but sort of a family, where some are good for some materials and then again some for other materials. For leather work eg., I only go with a product called Neotol, which for leather is several times stronger than "ordinary" contact glue.Super Glue (Cyanoacrylate) has evolved to a family as well and some types can even be had with different hardening times. Cyano goes with almost anything, a gelled type is used for porous materials. It is used in forensics as well, to "develop" fingerprints with, by putting the object with finger prints in a closed aquarium with a flat dish with liquid glue in it - after a while, the prints can be seen in white, as the cyano hardens on the grease of the prints.Epoxy is very strong and adheres to most materials (some plastics is a problem for most glues) and differs itself from cyano by its non sinking property - it can fill out missing parts, whereas the cyano needs totally fitting parts.Like a single screwdriver won't fit all screws, no single glue will fit all bonding jobs.
this is the schematic which shows you where the stuff goes
