Ideas & advice

Looking after your adhesive...storing adhesives at the right temperatures


Is storage temperature important for my adhesives?

Yes!  During the cooler months it is of utmost importance to really look after your adhesives to ensure you are experiencing optimium performance from them.

To ensure you are getting best performance from your adhesives it is best practice to store your adhesives between 10 degrees C and 25 degrees C.  If your adhesive drops below this temperature, it is important to bring adhesive up to a minimum of 10 degrees before attempting to use.  It is also advisable to give the canister or tub of adhesive a shake or stir before use.  

We would advise you check the Technical Data Sheet for further details.


Which products would this effect most?



Here at Alansons we really care about our products and desire that all our customers receive their orders in the best condition.  We also keep a keen eye on the weather forecast - especially at weekends!  If we see that the temperatures are predicted to be 5 degrees C or below over a weekend we will most likely take the decision to delay sending out certain adhesives on a Friday as we do not wish for adhesives to drop below 5 degrees in a courier company warehouse during the weekend before reaching our customers.
