Benefits

Aquabond Adhesives offer numerous benefits such as:

Easy Removal 
Debonding of parts after cutting or machining is accomplished using hot water and an Aquaclean water based cleaning agent, often accompanied by ultrasonic or air irrigation The use of acetone or aggressive solvents and their attendant health, fire and environmental hazards is eliminated.  

No Waste Requirements 
With proper approvals, the spent cleaning solution can be sewer discharged. The Aquabond adhesive system is unique in this respect. 

Improved Quality and Yields 
High hardness and shear strength improves precision machining operations creating less attrition.  

Environmentally Friendly and Cost Effective 
Following a simple debonding process using the aqueous cleaning agent, you will find your parts are much cleaner than using a typical thermoplastic stick followed by the solvent cleaning approach. Not only is the adhesive residue removed, but also oils and particles left by other areas of your process. Afterward, the cleaning solution can simply be poured down the drain. It does not need to be collected and further dealt with as hazardous 

Options
