How to use this product

  • Surfaces to be bonded must be dry, sound and free from grease/oil and dust.
  • If using cartridge: Cut tip off cartridge, fit nozzle and cut at 45° to desired opening (approx. 5 – 6 mm diameter). Place in cartridge gun to extrude contents.
  • If using tube: piece nozzle
  • Form bonds immediately by pressing parts firmly together.
  • Bonds can be re-positioned within 5 – 10 minutes after forming.
  • Always form bonds with wet adhesive.
  • If adhesive surfaces dry, no bond will form. (Scrape off and re-apply adhesive.)
  • On porous surfaces bonds will have good strength after 24 hours and continue to harden for a few days.
  • If both surfaces are non-porous, drying time is greatly extended (more than 7 days).
  • Wet, damp and cold weather will increase drying time.
  • For long narrow attachments (eg skirting, architraves, etc) apply one or two continuous beads along the back of the item.
  • For sheets to battens, apply continuous bead to the battens.
  • For sheets to flat walls, apply beads to the sheet at approx. 300mm intervals to within 50mm of the edges.
  • For small items, eg tiles, spots of adhesive should be sufficient.
  • Fast grab may not support very heavy items, particularly on uneven surfaces or smooth non-porous surfaces. In these cases temporary support will be required until adhesive dries
  • Thick applications may take longer to dry than thin applications

Handy tips

  • Ensure at least one surface is porous for effective bonding.
  • Wipe away excess with a damp rag.
  • Use temporary supports when bonding a heavy load – support until adhesive dries. Particularly on uneven or smooth or non-porous surfaces.
  • Good for gap filling – i.e. sticking two rough surfaces together.
  • Leave nozzle on tightly if storing once opened.
  • Warped panels may need holding or nailing until adhesive dries.
  • For cleaning surfaces prior to application of adhesive, if the surface is porous, we would recommend using SELLEYS Liquid Sugar Soap. If the surface is non-porous eg glass or metal, firstly clean the surface with mineral turpentine and then again with methylated spirits. If there is old, difficult to remove residue such as old paint, we recommend using paint stripper such as SELLEYS Kwik Strip Smart. Ensure the surface is dry before applying the product.
  • Keep a canister of SELLEYS Sugar Soap Wipes nearby for a quick and effective cleanup.

Safety tips

  • Remove from skin with soap and water.
  • If in eyes, hold eyes open, flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.

Storage and re-use

  • Clean up uncured adhesive with water. Cured material can be removed with acetone (most nail polish removers).
  • Store in cool dry place.
