Glue “Moment” is one of the best adhesive compositions presented in the modern market. In terms of quality, a huge variety of assortment and versatility “moment” is not equal in its segment and is widely used in everyday life, professional sector and production.
The rights to the brand “Moment” belong to the giant in the field of household chemicals, the German concern “Henkel”. The company is engaged in the development and release of adhesive products from the second half of the nineteenth century. He is one of the largest producers in Europe. In the domestic market, the adhesive appeared in 1979, and was made at the factory for the production of household chemicals in the city of Tosno, Leningrad region. Product release was carried out according to the license “Pattex” on German equipment and in strict accordance with the development of company specialists. The glue was called “Moment-1” and immediately won a great popularity among Soviet consumers.
In 1991, after redeemed by the concern “Henkel” of the controlling stake, the Tosnensky plant became the property of the giant. Over time, the company’s name has also changed, and since 1994, “Household Chemistry Plant” in the city of Tosno was called “Henkel-Era”. A few years later, the company was forced to change the composition of the glue, due to the frequent cases of the use of non-prescription.
The toluene component was excluded from the “moment”, which was a toxic solvent and had a specific effect on the body. For the implementation of this global project, the concern spent several hundred thousand dollars, thereby increasing his business reputation and gaining even greater consumer confidence. To date, the enterprise is the largest supplier of a huge range of adhesive products to the Russian market.
A huge model range of “Moments” implies the use of various components for the manufacture of a certain modification. The composition of the glue can include chloroprene rubbers, esters of rosin, phenoloformaldehyde resins, ethyl acetates, additives from the antioxidant and acetone, as well as from aliphatic and naphthenic modifications of hydrocarbon.
The exact composition of each brand is indicated in the description that is on the back of the package.
Popularity and high consumer demand for “moment” products are due to several advantages of material.
- A wide range in combination with rapid and reliable gluing of any surfaces makes it possible to apply glue in many spheres;
- High heat and moisture resistance of glue make it possible to use it in adverse conditions of the external environment, without fear of quality;
- Long service life guarantees the preservation of the performance properties of the material throughout the entire use time;
- Good rates of resistance to oils and solvents allow you to use glue in aggressive environments;
- Glue does not give shrinkage and not deformed when drying.
The shortcomings of products can be attributed to the big risk of adhesive, What is the result of the vast popularity of the brand and high quality of the original. As a result, there are often toxic and poisonous components in counterfeit components, which are not used by this manufacturer. The minuses also include an unpleasant smell of compositions and complexity of removal of leather glue residues.

The glue of this series is available in three modifications represented by Flizelin models, “Classic” and “Vinyl”. The material includes anti-grab additives capable of preventing the appearance of mold, fungus and pathogenic microorganisms.
Adhesives have high adhesion strength and retain their operational qualities for a long time. The composition can be applied to the surface of the wall as a brush and a pistol.
They are represented by the “Moment Super” adhesives, “Super Moment Profi Plus”, “Super Maxi”, “Super Momit Gel” and “Super Momotion Profi”, which are universal adhesive means and are able to reliably glue any materials except synthetic, polyethylene and teflon Surfaces. When working with such a composition, it is necessary to strictly comply with the rules of personal safety and not allow it to enter the mucous membrane of the eye and the skin of the hands. It should be borne in mind that glue has a liquid structure and spread well.
Work with second-hand compositions should be done very carefully using personal protective equipment. An exception is a colorless “moment of super gel”, which is not inclined with spreading and can be used on vertical surfaces.
Adhesives of this series toxic and combustion, Therefore, their use near open fire and food is strictly prohibited. The time of full grasp composition is one second. Glue is produced in tubes of 50 and 125 ml.
Such formulations are used to fix heavy elements and are produced in two modifications: “Super Epoxy Metal” and “Moment Epoxylin”. Both compositions are two-component and well glue the designs of metal, plastic, wood, polypropylene, ceramics and glass. Epoxy adhesive perfectly withstands high temperature and is distinguished by a reliable compound of materials.
How to choose?
Before purchasing glue “Moments”, you must carefully read the instructions on the package. If there is a simple base, such as skin, felt, rubber, soundproofing or acoustic panels, then you can use the traditional universal glue “Moment 1 Classic”. In the event that it is necessary to glue products from PVC, rubber, metal or cardboard, you need to use a specialized composition, such as “glue for boats and PVC products”. To repair shoes, you need to choose the “marathon”, and when gluing metal structures, it is necessary to apply the thermal composition “Cold welding”, which is represented by the “Moment Epoxylin” glue.
It should be selected, focusing on the more complex surface, and acquire glue for it. In case you have to repair with the need to seal the surface, you should use a glue tape or “moment” sealant. For fixing paper and cardboard, you need to purchase a stationery adhesive pencil, which is distinguished by light application on the surface and is absolutely not toxic.
Application and rules of work
Before you start working with glue, it is necessary to carefully prepare the grounds. To do this, wash them with warm water with soap and thoroughly dry. Especially smooth elements can be sick. It will give the surface roughness and increase the adhesive properties of the base. If necessary, elements should be deguted with acetone.
Next, you should follow the instructions, Since some types of glue should be applied on both surfaces and leave for 10-15 minutes, other, for example, the second models, do not need such manipulations. When applying wallpaper adhesives, you can use both rollers and brushes. The choice of the tool depends entirely on the area of the covered surface. When using any kind of production “Moment”, with the exception of wallpaper and stationery, you need to wear protective gloves, and when using seconds – use glasses.
