DAP Weldwood Original Contact Cement is a polychloroprene-based contact adhesive that forms a permanent bond on a variety of surfaces. It's an easy-to-use gel that won't drip. No mess. Ideal for vertical and overhead surfaces. Easy spread provides excellent coverage. Long assembly/open time. This professional quality adhesive offers instant adhesion to eliminate the need for clamps or temporary fasteners. Used extensively to bond high pressure laminates for counter tops, tabletops and cabinets. Forms a durable, high-strength bond when parts are assembled and pressure is applied.
Features & Benefits
- Permanent bond
- Gel formula
- Water resistant
- Interior & exterior use
- Creates a strong durable bond
- High heat resistant
- Ideal for vertical applications
Made in the U.S.
- Stir Contact Cement thoroughly with a standard paint paddle or stirring stick.
- Pre-fit all parts before applying Contact Cement.
- Surfaces to be bonded must be clean, dry and free of foreign materials. Roughen non-porous materials.
- The temperature of air, adhesive and surfaces should be above 65°F for a minimum of 24 hours before application and 72 hours after application.
- Apply one uniform coat of cement to each surface to be bonded with a paint brush, short nap roller, or finishing trowel.
- Let the coated surfaces dry for 15–20 minutes.
- Dry time may vary with temperature, humidity, and the thickness of the coat applied.
- Properly coated surfaces feel tacky and appear glossy when dry.
- Test for dryness by pressing kraft paper against the adhesive surface.
- Dry adhesive should adhere to kraft paper slightly, but not transfer.
- After the first coat is dry, recoat any dull spots; rough, porous, or absorbent surfaces may require two coats.

Question & Answers
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).
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.
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.
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 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.
