Abstract

When it is necessary to attach two members which are separated by a physical gap (0-5 mm, for example), the glue's adhesive component is first applied, the two parts are then adjusted to the critical spacing, and only thereafter is the glue's accelerator applied. As a result, a relatively long adjustment time can be accommodated, the glue rapidly sets in 5 seconds or less after application of the accelerator, and the resulting column of adhesive/accelerator spans the air gap between the members.
