Glue “Moment 88”: characteristics


On the Russian market, consumers do not have to complain about the lack of various adhesives. But there is no need to talk about the equivalence of all presented products. One of the strongest positions is now occupied by such a product as glue “Moment 88”.


“Moment 88”, according to the manufacturer of the glue, is one of the most durable adhesive mixtures. Its resistance to the harmful effects of water and cold is guaranteed. Even the old glued surface remains quite strong and stable under any mechanical stress.

The composition can be considered universal because it can be glued in any combinations:

  • rubber;
  • wood;
  • Leather Products;
  • wooden things;

  • cork;
  • plastics of various compositions;
  • metal surfaces;
  • concrete;
  • glass.

Even fabric and cardboard are quite capable of this mixture. You can attach a wooden plaque to a concrete wall, or temporarily fix a hole in leather boots..

But it must be borne in mind that this reagent will not help stick the plasticized polyvinyl chloride. It is also not suitable for working with polyethylene, styrofoam, polypropylene. It is recommended to avoid the use of adhesives for materials that are not recommended by the manufacturer..

How to use and store?

Moment 88 waterproof glue supplied to consumers in four packaging options:

  • tubes of 30 g and 125 ml;
  • cans of 750 g;
  • cans of 10 liters in each package.

The purchased composition can be stored at temperatures from -20 to 30 degrees; the general shelf life is 2 years from the date of manufacture. In the event of the expiration date or if the mixture loses its qualities, the packaging with it is disposed of in the same way as ordinary household waste. If the glue freezes within the permissible temperatures, when defrosting, it will completely return to its original specifications..

If the composition gets into places not intended for this, you need to wait for it to dry. Then the excess mass is collected with the fingers and rolled into a ball, which is already thrown into the trash. The same approach will help you to get rid of an overly large dose of glue. If it was spilled on clothes, judging by the reviews, the problem can be easily solved using a washing machine in the standard mode for a particular fabric. “Moment 88 extra strong” is normally evenly applied to the surfaces to be joined. Most attention should be paid to the edges, as well as other places that usually cause problems..

additional information

The glue “88” is so named for a reason. During the strength tests, for some reason, the test procedures were delayed for 8 days (instead of the usual 7), while the withstanding tensile strength on the last day was 8 joules. Experimenters could not ignore such an unusual fact, and so the result of technical control gave the name to the product. For professionals in the field of chemistry and building materials, these numbers – 88 – mean a lot. Only rare adhesives can boast the same stability when used.

The normal color of the composition can be different: let’s say both a light yellow and a light green tint, even a beige tint is occasionally found. The manufacturer guarantees excellent adhesive resistance in contact with gasoline and diesel fuel.

The waiting time is 120-300 seconds, all this time you can move the glued object. It is advisable to treat both problem surfaces with fine-grain emery before gluing..

Despite all the reliability of “Moment 88”, it is required in any case to degrease the substrate. If you do not follow this rule, there is no chance of success. For some time before the final attachment, the adhesive mass should be in contact with air. For not very porous substances, the exposure is from 2 to 3 minutes (taking into account the 0.2 cm layer on one surface). If the mixture is applied from both sides at once, it takes 5 minutes to keep it in the air..

When processing a porous coating on both sides, use a layer up to 0.5 cm thick and hold for 10 minutes, this is enough to saturate the pores. For your information: materials that greedily absorb the composition must be processed twice. In case of excessive thickening of “Moment 88”, it is permissible to dilute it with ethyl acetate. The proportion for dilution is 1: 1. The most important advantage of this glue in comparison with the usual “Moment” is the ability to uncouple the subsequently connected surfaces.
