Tecbond 7718 is a low viscosity, potting, encapsulation and knot/wood repair polyamide adhesive commonly used with the Knottec Wood Repair System.
Tecbond 7718 has a very low viscosity that sets very hard. It is used for two main applications. Potting and encapsulation in the electronics industry as well as knot filling/wood repair in the woodworking industry.
Potting and Encapsulation: Tecbond 7718 has been tested for use in electrical / electronic applications. The use of hotmelt speeds up assembly as there is no mixing and any unused adhesive remains in the glue gun ready for next time, so there is no waste. Setting time is usually less than 2 minutes. Coloured versions of the adhesive are available which can be useful to hide components or colour code for traceability.
Knot Filling / Wood Repair: The flow characteristics, hard setting and low shrinkage nature of Tecbond 7718 make it ideal for filling cracks and voids often found around knots in many types of wood. The adhesive is applied by glue gun, trimmed with a sharp knife or Mouseplane and then sanded as usual before finishing. The adhesive is available in different colours to match the wood.
Tecbond 7718 comes in a 10 stick pack with 12mm x 250mm glue sticks.
