In order to study the influence of quartz sand filler on the properties of water-based adhesives. Brinell rotational viscometer and universal testing machine were used to test the mechanical properties of adhesives incorporated with different particle sizes and different dosages. The test results show that when the particle size is greater than 280μm, the quartz sand is easy to sink to the bottom of the glue, which is not conducive to dispersion. When the dosage is constant, the smaller the particle size of quartz sand, the greater the viscosity of the liquid. The addition of quartz sand can significantly enhance the tensile properties of the adhesive after curing and the crack resistance in low temperature environment.
