The VA 2500 HT is a high viscosity contact adhesive that retains residual elasticity when cured and is therefore especially suitable for bonding rubbers and rubber to metal. It is highly temperature resistant (up to 135 °C) and impact resistant. Bonding of very elastic rubber (e.g. latex) should be done by applying single dots of the adhesive because if it is applied in a line that line will break as a result of the expansion of the individual pieces and this will make the bond wrinkly (even if the bond of the material remains firm).
In order to apply glues that come in large bottles or tubes with large openings in more precise amounts, syringes and dosing dispensers are very often employed. The blunt applicator needle is especially good for use as an attachment on super glue bottles.
