Different Types of Adhesives

An adhesive is a compound that adheres or bonds two items together. There are many sources and types of adhesive which are commonly divided into the following categories:

Drying Adhesives

Glues and rubber cements are members of this family. As the solvent evaporates, the adhesive hardens. These adhesives are typically weak and are used for household applications.

Hot Adhesives

Popular for crafts, these adhesives are used in a wide range of applications adhering common materials. They are applied hot and simply allowed to harden as they cool.

Reactive Adhesives

Reactive adhesives generally come in two separate containers and are mixed immediately before application causing polymerization which solidifies the adhesive.
