EkoBond is a revolutionary water based cement for the application of fabric. EkoBond has extreme bond strength for fabric to fabric and fabric to non-fabric surfaces in both peel and shear tests. EkoBond is very user friendly since it has very little odor and can be used in a closed shop with open flame heat with no health or fire hazards. When dry, EkoBond will adhere to itself, making it useful as a contact cement for a variety of applications. EkoBond is EPA compliant, non-flammable, non-hazardous and low in VOCs.
Available in quart or gallon-sized containers.
Done two planes with the stuff, works great. I prefer compared to typical solvent-mediated adhesive. However, its a bit of a bear to remove. It is available in pints from mfg, but shipping cost to east coast makes it impractical. So I buy quarts even though its too much material for a smaller job.
works great but should be available in pints.
Musuem in Montreal finds this product too expensive and may switch back to Dope process. someone should ask why it is so expensive.
too expensive for glue product.
Very easy to work with. Different application style than the other glues. Watch the online videos. You wipe off the excess glue before heating. Done right it creates a very smooth application. Low to no odor which is a huge plus over other glues especially if applying in a garage next to the house. I really am impressed!
We have done 2 wings with ekobond & it is wonderful to work with, clean up & bond.
This cement does what it says. Used it to complete a major fabric repair my Fisher Koala FP-202 fabric. This involved patching and re-attaching about 5 feet of fabric. It tacks and heat activates as advertised, and no odor! Held up well when the final repair was heat-stretched tight as a drum.
Yes, the Ekobond Cement is suitable to use with Dacron Fabric.
Yes, the Ekobond is suitable to be used on Ceconite fabric.
Somewhat. None of our products are technically heat activated. EkoBond is softened by heat and that allows the fabric to be pressed down into it. But it is not activated by heat. The heat is a temporary tack to hold the fabric, the wet glue going through the fabric and drying is the true glue joint. EkoFill is similar. Heat is not necessary to apply it. It can however, be softened by heat. That is useful for pressing down tape edges with an iron. Ironing tape edges down works equally well with Ekobond or EkoFill. Too much heat will make it smear or stick to the iron, so be careful. 200-250 degrees is good for that purpose.
Per Vendor: E610 will adhere just fine to any paint that is clean and scuff sanded. However, it is important to remember that it is adhering to the paint. If the paint does not have good adhesion to the substrate what is bonded to it will simply come off with the paint. As long as the paint is in good condition with good adhesion, no need to remove it.
