Adhesives – a look at 5 different products

At FGCI, we carry many, many products to help everyone from the huge manufacturer down to the weekend warrior. We cater to everyone in-between with all of our products, and adhesives are no different. If you need something to stick to something else, we have many different options to help you. Considering picking the right product is so important, let’s go over some of our bigger sellers so you will know what is right for you.

100_2051ASI Adhesive cartridges

ASI cartridges offer two sizes; 490ml cartridges and 50ml cartridges. The two sizes allow for multiple kinds of jobs and the adhesive adheres to most surfaces, with the exception being Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC). The 50ml cartridges have a very affordable dispensing gun and offer a very good ease of use. With the cartridges, you will need to purchase the dispensing gun and the mixing tips, which may be a bit pricey to start, but the results make up for the cost. You have working times from 10 minutes all the way up to 40 minutes. With the ease of use, and the in-expensive adhesives, ASI is always a top-seller.

We also carry a line of 2 oz bottles of adhesive that mix in the tube and have a near-instant cure-time.

PlioGrip

100_2047We carry Pliogrip in 490ml cartridges and the product offers quick working times of 5-8 minutes, up to a 24 minute working time. The product uses a different mixing tip that works very well and their bonding is extremely good. Like the ASI product, you need to purchase a dispensing gun and mixing tips. The dispensing gun can be a bit pricey, but in this case, you get what you pay for, in a very dependable, consistent product.
