Advice 1: How to glue wood and metal

Gluing metal to wood was considered at all times the process was complicated and time consuming, but today there are many modern adhesives and coatings, allowing you to do this with a minimum of effort.

How to glue metal to wood with glue

Previously the surface of the metal and the wood should be well degreased. For degreasing of metal would be the best solution of two parts sulphuric acid and one part nitric. Pre-metal needs to be sanded fine sandpaper. Wood can be treated with the usual solvent. Then the metal is washed well with clean water. You need to wait until the water is dry, not wiping the surface. After that one should apply a thin layer of synthetic glue for the metal and wood and dry. In ten hours the surface is again smeared with glue and put under a press and hold for about a day. Usually used rubber adhesives of the type 88-NP, CU-1, W-3, 88-H, "Elastosil-2" and "Pateks". Rubber adhesives are convenient in that easily cut off the excess - it makes the products marketable.
During the Second world war was the first result of the bonding of metal and wood, and the British produced the first aircraftthat used wooden structures connected with metal using rubber cement.
You can also glue wood and metal silicone rod that sold in any hardware store. You should buy a rod, heat with a lighter, lubricate the metal surface and glue to the tree.

Another popular method is the gluing of wood and metal with an epoxy resin. For example, suitable two-component epoxy Permabond ET515 or POXIPOL, more popularly known as "cold welding". Even as an option suitable two-component adhesive "Supervet". In any large hardware store there is a wide assortment of adhesives that will help solve the problem of gluing metal and wood.

How to glue metal to wood with adhesive tapes

Adhesive tapes is a new word in the construction industry. The very complexity of gluing metal to plastic or wood is that these materials have different coefficient of expansion when heated. Therefore, building the idea came up with double-sided adhesive tapes on the basis of the foam.
If necessary, these tapes are quite easily removed from hard surfaces, metal and wood without leaving any traces.
Range of these strips is high enough, allowing the customer to select exactly the one which is suitable in his case, because the metal and wood vary considerably in their characteristics. Adhesive tape does not impose high requirements for cleaning of surfaces and as bonding here will be very high. The most popular on the market of adhesive tapes MetalShelfTape, DUBLFIXHIGHBOND and DHB-04.

Advice 2: How to glue metal to metal

In everyday life we often face the need to glue two metal object. Second adhesive, which in recent times has become popular to glue everything, in this case not do. Contact a proven and reliable method of gluing pieces of metals of different alloys.
Metal objects can be glued with epoxy adhesives
First, you have to go to the store. Better not to waste time looking for the necessary funds in otetela economic or construction of goods, and immediately head to the auto parts store. This is where you can find two-component "cold welding", which is the best job of bonding metal objects. Choose a tool, set which includes two tubes: the active substance and the hardener. This may be the same Poxipol or other epoxy glues. In the same shop buy a small bottle of any solvent.
After returning home, degrease the bonding surface with a solvent to ensure the best contact. If the surface of one of the items have rust, clean it with emery paper or wire brush. Once all is ready for gluing, mix the active substance with the hardener in equal proportions, apply the entire mixture to the bonding surfaces and press them to each other. Curing time for most epoxy adhesives is between 5 and 15 minutes, so you should act quickly. Use glued objects to destination immediately after full cure.
"Cold welding" glues well not only metal but also plastic and wooden objects.
Useful advice
After the glue hardens, it can be treated with a file, sandpaper, angle grinder machine ("Bulgarian") and any other tools that can shape metal.
