Why Adhesives?

Attention sign manufacturers, your sign assembly just got better! Our extensive product portfolio of 18 adhesives is the ultimate solution for your sign application needs. From construction to installation, we have the right product for every application.

Adhesives and sealants have several beneficial uses in the sign industry. Use adhesives to:

  • Join Dissimilar Substrates
  • Distribute Stresses Evenly
  • Fill Large Gaps
  • Seal and Bond
  • Reduce Labor Costs (welding vs. general labor)
  • Prevent Galvanic Corrosion
  • Absorb Energy
  • Eliminate Drilling/Tapping, Weld Read-Through and Mechanical Fasteners
  • Maintain long-term sealing performance
  • Look Better (Aesthetics)

Adhesives vs. Tapes: What’s the Difference?

Liquid adhesives are superior to tapes for many reasons. Here are a few:

  • Repositionability – Tapes are difficult to reposition, which can lead to scrapping material. Liquid adhesives are easy to reposition, reducing waste.
  • Fast Assembly – Liquid adhesives can be applied much faster than tapes, saving time in assembly operations.
  • High Green Strength – As they cure, liquid adhesives become stronger than tapes.
  • Preventing Creep – Liquid adhesives prevent bond lines from separating over time, regardless of how much weight is applied.
