How to use this product


Contact Bonding

  • Hold down lid, whilst opening can.
  • Ensure surfaces are clean and dry. If cutting laminate sheets, cut slightly oversize. For porous surfaces apply a thin coat to seal surface and allow to dry for approx. 40mins.
  • Using applicator, completely cover both surfaces with adhesive and keep surfaces apart until ‘touch dry’ – approx 15 minutes, no more than 30 minutes.
  • Position items carefully, still keeping surfaces apart with dowels. When edges are perfectly aligned, remove dowels, and working from one edge, press surfaces firmly together. Grabs IMMEDIATELY on contact.
  • Secure the bond by running a roller over the bonded surfaces or by hammering the surface from the centre outwards using a padded block.
    Maximum bond strength is reached after 24 hours. Clamping of warped or curled surfaces may be necessary.

Wet Bonding (For small areas or for bonding where one surface is porous)

  • Ensure surfaces are clean and dry.
  • Apply KWIK GRIP to one surface, then bring the surfaces together and clamp until dry.

Handy tips

  • Care should be taken to test plastics prior to use as solvents present will attack some polystyrene and sheet vinyls.
  • Cover: 500mL covers up to 2.5m2 of one surface, depending on porosity of surfaces.
  • For vertical surfaces we recommend using SELLEYS Kwik Grip Vertical Gel.
  • For applications in confined or low ventilation areas eg car interior, we recommend using SELLEYS Kwik Grip Waterbased, as it is non-toxic and free of fumes.
  • Use a brush, knife or serrated scraper for application.
  • When using the contact method REMEMBER bonding is immediate once the two surfaces are joined.
  • Keep container sealed when not in use.
  • 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.
  • While wet, adhesive can be removed using mineral turps. Cured adhesive is very difficult to remove. Tools and other equipment on which Kwik Grip Crystal Clear has dried may be cleaned by soaking in Toluol or lacquer thinner. Excess adhesive on the face of the jointed materials may also be removed with solvent, but care should be taken that the materials themselves are not damaged by the solvent.
  • Keep a canister of SELLEYS Sugar Soap Wipes nearby for a quick and effective cleanup.
  • Contains highly flammable solvents and care should be taken to ensure all fire precautions are observed. As an alternative, Kwik Grip Waterbased is non-flammable.

Safety tips
