Water-based adhesives are a type of glue that use water to activate the bonding process. The adhesive is mixed with water to create a solution and then applied to the substrates. As the water evaporates, the adhesive solidifies to form a strong bond.
To reduce shrinkage in water-based adhesives, you can adjust the ingredients to slow down the drying process. Slowing down this process makes the adhesive thicker and helps to keep it from shrinking as much while drying.
