Adhaesum It is a Latin term that comes from adhering. This Latin term we can say that it can be translated as “able to stick” and is the result of the sum of three clearly defined components:
-The prefix "ad-", which means "towards".
-The verb "haerere", which is equivalent to "paste."
-The suffix "-ivo", which is used to indicate a passive or active relationship.
To our language came as adhesive , an adjective that qualifies what has the ability to fix something . For example: "I'm going to fasten the wires with tape so they don't move", “My mom gave me a notepad with adhesive paper”, "Stirring the trunk, the young man found a patched book with adhesive cloth".
He concept It is also used as a noun to name material which, when placed between two elements, adheres to each other, hitting them : “We use an industrial adhesive to glue the soles of our boots”, “I need an adhesive to fix the sign on the door”, "I glued the decorative stones with a transparent adhesive".
The adhesives, therefore, get that two bodies remain united through a superficial contact. Adhesion can be due to different causes, from mechanical motives to magnetic issues.
It is possible to find stickers in different presentations. The liquid adhesives they meet their function when they dry and the bond they establish becomes more resistant. An example of liquid adhesive is the traditional white tail .
However, within the group of liquid adhesives we find many others such as, for example, natural rubber, silicone, acrylic type ...
Between the solid adhesives , the most popular are the bars that allow you to paste paper or cardboard, moving them on the surface which is intended to unite. There are also solid adhesives powdered .
Regarding your origin , the adhesives can come from sources animals (such as the tail created from bones or skin) or vegetables (There are adhesives made with corn and potatoes or potatoes). They can also develop so synthetic (from oil, to cite a possibility).
In addition to classifying them by their origin or by their presence, we cannot ignore that this work can be undertaken based on another set of criteria. Thus, for example, you can take into account what is its curing, which would lead us to find four large groups of adhesives:
-Those who are sensitive to pressure.
-Those that are adhesive by evaporation or diffusion.
-The chemically reactive.
-The heat fusion, such as elastomers.
If, on the other hand, we classify them according to the use they are going to give them, we run into three large groups:
-Adhesives for children or household use.
-The industrialists. Within this category we can find ourselves from those used for labeling bottles to those used to make bookbinding through those used to make furniture of various kinds.
-Professional adhesives, which are those used by different workers to carry out the gluing of parts or elements with which they perform their tasks.
