BEVAź GEL is an
aqueous dispersion of acrylic and EVA resins.
In its pure form, or diluted with water, BEVAź GEL is an excellent
water-based adhesive dispersion, easy to apply, with good slip, and adhesion to
a very wide range of surfaces. When
partially dried, BEVAź GEL turns into a strong contact adhesive with excellent
adhesive to canvas, polyester, and Beva-coated surfaces.
To achieve this, high-molecular polymers were incorporated in its
formula, which give it the desired tackiness and retention of solvents.
For these reasons, it dissolves only slowly.
When fully dried, BEVAź GEL turns into a
heat-seal adhesive, with the same low-activation temperature as that of BEVA 371
BEVAź GEL, BEVAź 371, and BEVAź D-8 adhere to each other in every form of
GEL can be reversed with water, toluene, xylene, iso-propyl alcohol, or ethanol.
This facilitates clean-up and corrections.
Spraying with any or all of the above solvents reverts the dried adhesive
back to the gel form, and makes it reusable as a contact adhesive.
If the effect of any of these solvents is undesirable or the time
required objectionable, the solution is to coat the surfaces to be joined with a
layer of BEVAź 371 Solution first. This
makes it possible to remove the lining using heat or naphtha, if and when
BEVAź GEL is
