Canadian Safety Datasheet
Helmibond #0847 is a fast-setting polyvinyl acetate (PVA) emulsion adhesive that dries to a tough, durable, shock-resistant bond. Glue lines are practically colorless when dry, giving a professional finish and making this adhesive ideal for the highest quality woodwork. Helmibond #0847 has been formulated to resist the staining of woods high in tannic acid. Set speed depends on the temperature, humidity and moisture content of the wood.
Under ideal conditions, setting times as low as 30 minutes can be obtained. When fully cured at normal room temperature with a wood moisture content of 6-10%, Helmibond #0847 will exhibit shear strengths of approximately 21,000 kPa (3,000 psi).
This adhesive may be applied by hand brush, roller or squeeze bottle.
Excellent machinability makes this adhesive ideal for use with a mechanical spreader, spraying or pressurized flow gun systems.
