Trying to stick PVC to metal is such a difficult task to undertake but yet a very common everyday application, especially in the industrial market. Metal and PVC are so widely used as PVC has become an alternative to wood for example, PVC facia and PVC doors/panels. It’s not to say that PVC has replaced wood entirely but in a high percentage of projects this is the case.
Sticking wood to metal was a much simpler task than trying to stick PVC to metal due to certain factors such as the wood being porous and the PVC containing chlorine. Several types of adhesives have been used to try and stick PVC to metal and have not performed satisfactory. A first choice of product to stick PVC to metal is a silicone sealant but this lacks bond strength and in some cases will etch into the PVC due to the aggressive solvent within the silicone.
Sticking PVC to metal with one component mastics or Cyanacrylate (superglue) equally lack good performance. Cyanacrylate (superglue) can be very hit and miss when attempting to stick PVC to metal. Even when a good bond has been achieved the superglue is not flexible which will eventually lead to the bond failing. The only product (in our opinion) to successfully stick PVC to metal is CT1 the unique sealant and construction adhesive.
CT1 is a unique hybrid formulation that contains no solvents, therefore will not shrink or etch into the plastic but also remains flexible. CT1 will create a formidable bond between PVC and metal but also between numerous other materials such as wood, glass, stone and fibreglass with them working in any combination.
So many of our customers have used CT1 to stick PVC to metal, with 100% satisfaction. This is not only in the short term but also as a permanent bond. In preparation of sticking PVC to metal it is advantageous to clean/degrease the surfaces and the perfect solution for this is our CT1 Multisolve. CT1 Multisolve is a unique alphatic solvent that is gentle to the user and surfaces but very effective in the removal of silicone, grease, wax, tar and a multitude of stubborn deposits.
