I was half-watching some (I THINK) automotive repair program the other
night (spare TV in the computer room) and somebody was demonstrating a new
adhesive. They showed gluing various things to various other things like
wood and rubber to steel and glass, etc. as well as one image of making an
O-ring out of a length of rubber rod. That was the one that caught my
eye. The demo process was that you applied a liquid to the joint, pressed
it together and then misted an activator to the outside of the
joint. Instantaneous adhesion. The rubber rod, maybe 3/8" thick,
immediately withstood the demonstrator putting a foot into the circle and
pulling obviously hard on the ring he'd just made.
The guy said getting just a tiny bit of the activator ANYWHERE in contact
with the surface of the liquid at the joint made the adjesive cure.
Anyway, they guy said to look it up at www.coolchem (at least that's what I
thought I heard him say--there was no URL shown on the screen). I've been
unable to find it as coolchem, koolchem, kewlchem, kulchem, coolkem, etc.
Anybody else see this and do a better job of catching a link for it?
