Elastomeric Construction Adhesives: Influence of Solvent Retention on Strength
Keywords:Adhesives, styrene-butadiene adhesive, adhesive strength, shear strength development
AbstractSolvent retention for a styrene-butadiene elastomeric construction adhesive was determined by gas-liquid chromatography and compared to shear strength development during a 5-month cure period at ambient temperature. Both low (hexanes) ahd high boiling (toluene) solvents were found to be present and strength development was directly related to solvent losses.
