Mirror, Mirror Stays On The Wall

by | Apr 6, 2021 | Sealants & Sealed Units

Mirrored tiles, walls and glass panels are being used increasingly as decorative features, splash backs and in wet rooms and wash rooms. Hodgson Sealants’ Mirror Adhesive is specifically formulated to make the fixing of mirrors, coated glass and metal panels easy, convenient and safe without the need for mechanical fixings to spoil the aesthetic.

Hodgson Mirror adhesive adheres well to most non-porous surfaces such as painted plaster or wood, ceramic tiles and glass and, because it is resistant to high levels of humidity, it is well-suited to use in bathrooms, kitchens, changing rooms and gyms for fixing mirrors, splashbacks, upstands, mirror tiles and glass panels. Hodgson Mirror Adhesive has been extensively tested for compatibility with all known mirror backing paints  and boasts excellent mechanical grab on most types of mirror coatings – traditionally a difficult substrate to fix successfully.

This Mirror Adhesive has been formulated by Hodgson to make installing mirrors safe and simple. Once cured to its flexible rubberised  finish, the adhesive can accommodate small surface irregularities. It has a good working time for adjustment but cures quickly so that, in most cases, temporary support can often be removed within 24 hours.

Hodgson Mirror Adhesive is safe and easy to use. It is non-corrosive, odourless and comes ready-to-use in a 310ml e cartridge that fits a standard applicator gun. For successful adhesion and optimum cure and mechanical grab, Hodgson 817 should be applied in 10mm wide strips with 2mm bead thickness. The mirror needs to be supported for approximately twenty-four hours, if air is allowed to circulate freely around the edges of the mirror, then the adhesive will cure quickly and effectively.

Hodgson Sealants has been established for over 50 years, with its own UK-based R&D and production facilities. Hodgson manufactures a wide range of products using the latest technologies for various markets, including construction, leisure and transportation.
