Application Instructions

Surface Preparation:
Surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of all foreign material. If cleaning is required, isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), acetone, or soap and water can be used. Allow surface to dry. Non-porous surfaces (like plastic, metal, and glass) can be slightly dampened by wiping with a wet paper towel before applying adhesive.

  1. Apply a small amount of adhesive to one substrate. Be careful not to over apply as it will result in excess squeeze out when you join materials together.
  2. Press surfaces together and clamp for a minimum of 25 minutes to set. For additional tack when joining substrates, apply adhesive to one surface and wait 15 minutes before joining surfaces together.
  3. Wait at least 25 minutes for set. Allow 1 to 3 hours before return to service and 24 hours for full cure. Nonporous substrates (plastic, metal, glass) may take longer to set and cure. Slightly dampen non-porous surfaces before application for faster set and cure time.

If nozzle should clog, simply clear nozzle with a pin or end of paper clip. If required, liquid squeeze-out can be removed with a dry paper towel (do not use water). Cured adhesive must be cut, scraped, or sanded away or removed with acetone or alcohol. Avoid direct contact with skin. Do not transfer to any other container. Keep container tightly closed.

Note: Pretest for glass projects. Bonded items should not be placed in oven, microwave, or dishwasher.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

DAP RAPIDFUSE Ultra Clear All Purpose Adhesive
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
