Acrylic adhesive is a type of adhesive resistant to UV radiation and heat. Unlike rubber-based adhesives, acrylic adhesive has a lower initial grip, although the final adhesion is much higher.
Acrylic adhesive is among the strongest adhesives available on the market today. This is largely due to two factors: cohesion and adherence. Cohesion is the measure of an adhesive's ability to adhere to itself, while adherence is its ability to adhere to other elements. The acrylic adhesive has the best cohesion and adhesion in this sector: these factors are influenced by the polymerization time, polymerization temperature and viscosity of the adhesive. The acrylic adhesive has got a high viscosity, with longer polymerization times at higher temperatures.
