Since oils and greases are “loose,” anything that may possibly stick would only be able to stick to the top ‘layer’ of the oil even if it were possible. The adhesion will be broken when this layer simply separates itself from the layers that are beneath it.

However, in order to fully comprehend this, it is necessary to comprehend the process by which adhesion occurs (this procedure varies depending on the adhesive), but a really good way to see the effects of cohesion producing adhesion would be to wet a bit of paper and stick it to something like glass. 

In this scenario, you do not have any sticky synthetic adhesive but rather just electrostatic cohesion between the water molecules. The paper is adhered to the glass by the action of millions of extremely weak electrostatic forces referred to as “Van Der Waals” forces. It’s interesting to note that this experiment is successful when using oil as well. Another illustration of how cohesion may lead to increased adhesion.

If you try to adhere something to an oily or greasy surface, you will not be able to utilize synthetic glue since the adhesive will not have something firm to latch onto.

Grease and oily surfaces

If you are referring to a surface that has oil that has settled on it, then the answer is “no,” since your adhesive will not be able to reach a stable substrate to connect with. The adhesive will solidify, but its strength will be limited since it cannot compete with the strength of the oil’s binding to the substrate; to put it another way, you will be able to remove it.

There are adhesive methods that can tolerate a small amount of oil and integrate some of that oil into the cured material at the end of the process. If you want a solid bond, the surface must still be cleaned to the best of your ability before applying one of them. 

Although they are able to integrate oil, there is a reduction in the final qualities of the product. If you do not clean to a suitable degree, your bond will be inconsistent, and you will have to test each one separately to determine if it is acceptable. This will be the case if you do not clean.

Future Glue Liquid

High-Performance Future Glue is an adhesive that sets in a short amount of time, attaches through greasy or unclean surfaces, and performs very well on difficult tasks. There is no requirement to wipe the surfaces! The potent formula for the adhesive works on surfaces that are dusty and oily, and it is resistant to both high and low temperatures as well as the majority of chemicals. 

Its immediate bonding capacity may be used for the majority of different materials, both porous and non-porous. Apply a wipe that has been moistened with the solvent to the surface that needs to be cleaned, and scrub it well. 

After that, use a dry wiper to remove all traces of the solvent off the surface before the solvent has a chance to evaporate. If the solvent were to evaporate, the oil that had been dissolved would be redeposited on the surface. It should be sufficient to just repeat the process until there are no longer any oil remnants visible on your wipers.
