Cross-over products are those that, accidentally or on purpose, have been found to have multiple uses instead of just the one they were originally intended. You can find them all over the place. Anyone remember Pepsi AM for the “breakfast cola drinker” (circa 1989)? It was supposed to be the cross-over into breakfast product, but, fortunately for all of us humans, it died out quickly. You can read more about well-intentioned cross-over products including Ponds toothpaste, Cosmopolitan (Magazine) Yogurt and Coors Rocky Mountain Spring Water at this site: http://www.businessinsider.com/qwik-fails-15-disastrous-product-launches-that-were-quickly-killed-2011-10?op=1#ixzz36EZGjIwX. And, beyond that, do you have undiscovered cross-over products?
Two examples of viable, cross-over products from RhinoTech
RhinoBond™ Toughened Frame Adhesive Systems requires no premixing of solvents and offers tension holding capabilities of over 90 newtons. The wide range of viscosities available ensure a secure bond of mesh to wood or aluminum screen frames. The RBT Series is flexible, impact toughened and has great removal characteristics. They dry in seconds and are non-hazardous.
Because of these amazing characteristics, especially the non-hazardous part, RBT 100 (super, super, super glue) is often used by beaders as an adhesive to use to secure a knot on a bracelets and necklaces and to hold beads in place. Compared to other jewelry-making glue in that growing market, this glue surpasses. It will dry quite quickly, as well. As always, follow directions for handling and don’t glue your fingers together! It’s $37.00 for the Kit.
Discovered by a quilter searching for a better bonding product, we’re showcasing RBA3 Spray Web, an aerosol adhesive that is much like the product used during Halloween to create spider webs. RBA3 Adhesive Web is the quilter’s adhesive of choice for several reasons. One, it is part of the RhinoClean Green line of environmentally-sensitive products.
Two, the “web” is quite self-contained so over spraying, unlike what is often found with other spray adhesives specific to the crafting/hobby market, is a non-issue. It works particularly well during the sandwiching phase of quilting as it is able to be respositioned. This adhesive web is strong enough to hold sweatshirt material in place and it bonds easily to a variety of materials without transferring adhesive to the fabric that is a highly important element. And, it washes out.
This quilted, reversible yoga bag in the featured image was constructed with RBA3. It’s soft and durable with two pockets large enough for a water bottle, wallet, keys, suntan lotion and more. A yoga mat easily fits. If you’d like to order a finished bag or 1 or more cans of RBA 3 Spray Web, contact RhinoTech at 651-686-5027. At $6.99 for a 13 oz. can, it’s a steal! And, with a $50+ purchase, FREE SHIPPING is available within the contiguous U. S.
