Landscape Construction Adhesive

Selleys Liquid Nails Landscape

P_SelleysLiquidNailsLandscape

SELLEYS LIQUID NAILS Landscape is a premium grade, high strength construction adhesive. It delivers a weather resistant, strong, flexible and shock resistant bond that is useful in many landscape projects. This is important because the bond can withstand greater movement in the structure and therefore adds to the overall stability of the structure. A rigid bond adhesive, on the other hand, has less flexibility resulting in cracking of the bond with movement and a less secure structure.


Features

  • Has excellent adhesion which creates a stronger structure.
  • High flexibility to cope with seasonal weather extremes which result in movement.
  • Excellent weather resistance, which adds stability to dry stone and interlocking masonry walls.
  • High temperature resistance, so the bond won’t crack.
  • Stablises, strengthens and increases the life of dry stone and interlocking masonry walls.
  • Low odour during application.
  • Non corrosive.
  • Not for use on polyethylene, polypropylene or Teflon.

How to use this product

  • Ensure the surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dust, grease, oil and loose powdery materials. If porous surfaces are greasy or dirty, we would recommend cleaning the surface with SELLEYS LIQUID SUGAR SOAP, and allow to dry. Oily timber types may need to be wiped with solvent prior to application to remove surface oils.
  • We also recommend sanding the surface back with a good quality sanding block, as the construction adhesive will adhere more readily to a scratched up surface.
  • Cut the seal at the top of the cartridge. Cut the nozzle end to desired opening (approx. 5mm diameter). Fit to the top of the cartridge.
  • Insert the cartridge into a caulking gun such as SELLEYS LIGHT SPEED Caulking gun. We recommend SELLEYS LIGHT SPEED Caulking Gun, as its new innovative pressure release design reduces the mess which results from run on and stress on your hands, which is critical if you are doing a lot of work which requires a caulking gun.
  • Apply ‘dobs’ or beads of adhesive of appropriate thickness to ensure sufficient contact and spread between both surfaces. (To minimise ‘squeeze out’ apply at least 12mm in edges)
  • Immediately bring surfaces together before product skins (within 5 minutes) and apply sufficient pressure to spread adhesive between both surfaces.
  • Do not wipe excess ‘squeeze out’. Wait until product cures and remove by trimming with a sharp blade, but avoid cutting into bond.
  • Leave undisturbed until adhesive cures sufficiently. Do not allow traffic on stairs or use walls for at least 24 hours.
  • If repositioning materials, fresh adhesive must be applied to achieve bonding.
  • When the product is still wet it can be removed with mineral turpetine, otherwise if the product is dry it can be removed by applying SELLEYS SILICONE REMOVER.

Handy tips

Tips for Using a Liquid Nails Landscape:

  • If repositioning materials, fresh adhesive must be applied to achieve bonding.
  • LIQUID NAILS Landscape cannot be used as a contact adhesive
  • Working time is 10 minutes. Ensure surfaces are brought together before this time.
  • Keep a pack of SELLEYS Sugar Soap Wipes handy to wipe up any spills and for cleaning. They are an easy and effective way to keep clean on the job.

Safety tips

  • On contact, uncured adhesive can irritate eyes. If in eyes, flood the eyes for at least 15 minutes and seek medical advice.
  • Avoid contact with skin, if contact occurs, wipe off immediately and wash with detergent. It may irrtate sensitive skin.
  • Avoid breathing vapours. Ensure use in a well ventilated area. Product releases methyl ethyl ketoxime while curing.
  • For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (AUS 131 126; NZ 0800 764 766) or a doctor.
  • For further detail on the safe use of this product, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet, which can be downloaded from this site.
  • Keep away from children.

Storage and re-use

  • Store in a cool place.
  • The adhesive should be used within 6 months after opening.
  • After use keep the nozzle on the cartridge
  • LIQUID NAILS Landscape is a reactive product and is designed to cure once exposed to humidity. While the product may be stored for a few months once opened, it does have a limited shelf life. Storage in an upright position in a cool dry place is recommended to maximise the storage life.
  • If the adhesive is going to be used again within a few days, leave the nozzle on and merely extrude approximately 2 cm of product before storing the cartridge upright. This will cure to a plug which can easily be pulled out when required.
  • For longer storage periods, leave the nozzle on and place a piece of plasticene or Blu Tack over the end of the nozzle. Tightly tape a piece of aluminium foil over the whole nozzle to exclude any air.
  • When you want to re-use the product, simply take off the foil and plug from the old nozzle pull out the excess adhesive from the nozzle with a corkscrew, then re-pierce any cure at the tip of the cartridge and re-use.
  • If cure has taken place into the cartridge, the product is unlikely to be in a useable state and should be discarded.
