Araldite for Arts and Crafts
Top tips from the team at Araldite Professional Adhesives
Adhesives, or "glue" as most of us refer to them, may not be the most exciting addition to your workbox but they have two wonderful attributes.
They make AND mend things in a way no nails, screws, nuts and bolts can do - with a clean and often invisible join that is very satisfying on the eye.
So what exactly does an adhesive do? It's a much more complicated answer than you might expect, but put at its most basic adhesives create a near-perfect layer of 'cohesive contact' between two parts. If you think of jam in a sandwich you won't be far off.
