Solvent Glue vs. Water Based Glue

Surely all of you are no stranger to this one object. Is one of the objects that are used to attach or attach objects to one another, namely glue. Did you know that glue can be a liquid solution, thick to solid. Apart from that, glue has inherent ingredients such as water-based and solvent-based. Water-based glue is glue that is water-based and is in the form of an emulation or solution. Emulation is a solid particle that spreads when it is in water, while a solution is in the form of liquid particles like syrup. Solvent based glue consists of Toluene, Ethyl acetate and Methyl Ethyl Ketone.


Comparison of water based glue with solvent based glue

For now, water-based glue is starting to be sought after and used by many people, because water-based glue has several advantages when compared to solvent-based glue, especially in terms of safety. In addition, these two types of glue can be compared in several other ways, among others

  1. Evaporation: when discussing the evaporation process of these two types of glue, basically water-based glue undergoes the evaporation process longer. But conversely with solvent based glue it evaporates faster.

  2. Drying: for the drying process of water-based glue, it takes a little longer. Meanwhile, solvent-based glue types are faster in the drying process. This makes solvent based glue superior to water based glue.

  3. Spreading power: water based glue type has a wider spreading power when compared to solvent based glue types. So when using water based glue you will feel more economical in using the glue.

  4. Heat resistance: in terms of heat resistance, attention should be paid when using glue. Heat resistance will affect whether the glue is flammable or not. For users who choose the type of water based glue, there is no need to worry because water based glue is not flammable. Meanwhile, users who choose a solvent-based glue type really need to be careful because solvent glue is highly flammable (especially HPL glue).

  5. Shelf life: you don't need to worry about the shelf life of water-based glue because this type of glue has a long shelf life. in contrast, for those of you who have solvent-based glue, you need to pay attention to the shelf life because this glue doesn't last long or dries easily.


That's an explanation regarding the comparison between water-based glue and solvent-based glue. There are still quite a lot of solvent glue users because solvent glue has a faster drying time than water based. so people prefer solvent based glue because they need fast processing time.


We provide Solvents such as Toluene, MEK, Ethyl Acetate.

Lem Solvent vs. Lem Water Based


Pasti Anda semua tidak asing dengan benda yang satu ini. Merupakan salah satu benda yang digunakan untuk menempelkan atau merekatkan benda satu dengan yang lainnya yaitu lem. Apakah Anda tahu bahwa lem dapat berupa larutan yang cair, kental sampai dengan yang padat. Selain itu juga, lem mempunyai bahan bawaan seperti water based dan solvent based. Lem water based adalah lem yang berbahan dasar air serta berbentuk emulasi atau larutan. Emulasi merupakan partikel padat yang menyebar saat ada di dalam air, sedangkan larutan berupa partikel cair sperti sirup. Lem solvent based terdiri dari Toluene, Ethyl acetate dan Methyl Ethyl Keton.


Perbandingan lem water based dengan lem solvent based

Untuk saat ini lem jenis water based mulai banyak dicari serta digunakan oleh banyak orang, karena lem water based memiliki beberapa keunggualan bila dibandingkan dengan lem jenis solvent based, terutama dari segi keamanannya. Selain itu, kedua jenis lem ini dapat dibandingkan dari beberapa sisi lainnya, antara lain

  1. Penguapan: apabila membahas terkait proses penguapan dari dua jenis lem ini, pada dasarnya lem water based lebih lama mengalami proses pengupan. Tetapi sebaliknya dengan lem solvent based lebih cepat menguap.

  2. Pengeringan: untuk proses pengeringan lem jenis water based memperlukan waktu agak lama. Sedangkan lem jenis solvent based lebih cepat dalam proses mengeringkan. Hal ini menjadikan lem solvent based lebih unggul dibandingkan dengan lem water based.

  3. Daya sebar : jenis lem water based memiliki daya sebar yang lebih luas bila di bandingkan dengan jenis lem solvent based. Sehingga saat menggunakan lem water based kalian akan merasakan lebih irit dalam penggunaan lemnya.

  4. Ketahanan panas: dalam hal ketahanan panas perlu di perhatikan saat menggunakan lem. Ketahanan panas akan mempengaruhi apakah lem tersebut mudah terbakar atau tidak. Untuk pengguna yang memilih jenis lem water based, tidak perlu khawatir karena lem water based tidak mudah terbakar. Sedangkan untuk pengguna yang memilih jenis lem solvent based sangat perlu berhati-hati karena lem solvent sangat mudah terbakar (khusunya lem HPL).

  5. Masa simpan : untuk masa simpan lem jenis water based anda tidak perlu khawatir karena lem jenis ini mempunyai masa simpan yang lama. berbanding sebaliknya untuk anda yang mempunyai lem solvent based anda perlu memperhatikan masa simpan karena lem ini tidak berlangsung lama atau mudah kering.


Itu dia penjelasan terkait perbandingan antara lem water based dengan lem solvent based. Untuk pengguna lem solvent masih terbilang banyak karena lem solvent miliki waktu pengeringan yang lebih cepat di bandingkan water based. sehingga orang-orang lebih memilih lem solvent based karena mereka membutuhkan waktu pengerjaan yang cepat.


Kami menyediakan Solvent seperti Toluene, MEK, Ethyl Acetate.
