OUR GLUES

They are glues also called Missions suitable for the adhesion of imitation gold and silver leaves to various surfaces

WUNDA SIZE WATERBASED MISSION

Water-based vinyl glue particularly suitable for applying imitation gold and silver leaves on porous surfaces such as wood.

Ready to use 15 minutes after application, it has a window of use of at least 24 hours.

It can be lengthened by adding distilled water up to a maximum of 50%

We package it in bottles of 125 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml and 1 lt, and in 5 lt tanks.

ALCOHOLIC MISSION

The alcohol based adhesive is an adhesive in alcohol dispersion, for quickly gluing imitation gold and silver leaves on non-porous surfaces such as glass and iron.

The application of the leaf must be carried out 15 minutes after the application of the glue and must be completed quickly because the glue tends to dry quickly.

It can be slightly diluted with 99% alcohol

We package it in bottles of 125 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml and 1 lt, and in 5 lt tanks.

NITRO MISSION

The nitro mission is a technical mission for professionals and large surfaces and is suitable for all media.

It should be diluted up to 50% with good quality nitro solvent and after application you should wait at least 12/24 hours before starting to lay down the leaves.

Paolo Angeletti’s alcohol mission for gilding offers numerous distinctive features that make it an excellent option for those who want to obtain artistic gilding with ease and versatility. Below are listed its main characteristics and methods of application.

Alcohol Missions: Main Features

  • Rapid Application: A notable advantage of this mission is its ability to enable rapid application. In just 30 minutes, you can transform an object into a golden work of art.
  • Compatibility with Water-Repellent Supports: The alcohol mission is particularly effective for applying the metallic foil on water-repellent supports, such as metal, glass and plastic. Its reliable adhesion makes it an ideal choice for a variety of materials.
  • Creativity Without Limits: Before application, it is possible to decorate the object with paints or acrylic colors to give a unique effect to the metallic leaf once positioned. This feature offers extensive creative possibilities to customize your project.

Application procedure:

Applying the mission to alcohol requires attention and precision.
Some key details to keep in mind include:

  • Internal Use: This mission is ideal for internal gilding. For external projects, we recommend the use of paint missions.
  • Application with Pad or Brush: It is possible to apply the product with a pad or brush on water-repellent supports, trying to obtain a thin layer.
  • Drying Times: It is essential to respect the film’s drying times to avoid applying the leaf to a completely dried or still damp support. The surface should feel tacky to the touch with no wet residue.
  • Thin Layer: For resistant gilding, we recommend applying a thin layer of mission. An excessive elastic layer could cause splits on the leaf itself.
  • Adequate Dilution: It is recommended to dilute the mission with water (maximum 30%). The dilution percentage, application method and quantity will influence workability times. Experiment to find the method that best suits your needs.
