  • Metal
  • Concrete
  • Ceramic
  • Most plastics (will not adhere to polyethylene or polypropylene, test other plastics first).
  • All timbers

How to use this product

  • Surfaces to be bonded must be close fitting, clean, dust and grease free.
  • Wipe very dry porous surfaces with a damp cloth 1 minute before bonding.
  • Apply a thin layer of adhesive evenly to one surface only. Glue expands and foams as it cures.
  • Assemble parts together within 10 minutes and clamp firmly or weight to hold until cured.
  • Wipe nozzle clean and seal container tightly. (to prevent remaining product from hardening in the container).
  • Wipe away any excess adhesive immediately with acetone. After drying, any excess adhesive can only be removed by scraping, sanding, filing or cutting.
  • Clean tools with acetone or white turpetine immediatly after use (before adhesive dries).

Handy tips

  • 1L covers approx. 8m2
  • It is advisable to wear gloves (adhesive bonds to skin and is extremely difficult to remove from skin).
  • For bonding with smooth surface materials such as glass, plastics or metals, we suggested sanding or roughening the surface.
  • The tighter you clamp, the better bond you will obtain (as Durabond expands).
  • Wipe nozzle clean and seal container tightly. (to prevent remaining product from hardening in the container.)
  • Wipe oily timber surfaces with acetone on a clean rag to remove any surface oils & allow to dry before applying adhesive.
  • In extremely dry conditions or for extremely dry surfaces (eg terracotta) wipe surfaces with a damp rag prior to bonding to ensure sufficent moisture is present to cure product. Surfaces should not be wet.
  • It is recommended to use the entire contents of a pack within 6 months of opening. Product may form a hard skin on the surface during this period. Usable material is normally still present beneath this skin and can be accessed by breaking the hardened layer.
  • 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.
  • If glue comes in contact with hands, use acetone or white spirits to remove immediately and then rinse off with soapy water followed by hand creme. Alternatively wipe hands regularly while using Aquadhere Durabond. Once cured, adhesive is extremely difficult to remove from skin.
  • If cured material is discovered on the skin, then rub vegetable oil or Vitamin E cream into the area repeatedly to accelerate the natural process of the skin shedding, which will in turn cause the cured product to fall off.

Safety tips

  • Contains organic isocyanate polymers.
  • 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, remove contaminated clothing or flush skin and hair with running water.
  • 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.
  • Warning: this product contains organic isocyanate polymers. This product has been classified as hazardous according to the criteria of NOHSC and HSNO. 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

  • Clean tools with acetone or white spirit immediately after use (before adhesive dried).
  • Storage – For maximum shelf life store inside at moderate temperatures in dry conditions. Keep tightly closed to prevent moisture and air contact.
  • It is recommended to use the entire contents of a pack within 6 months of opening. Product may form a hard skin on the surface during this period. Usable material is normally still present beneath this skin and can be accessed by breaking the hardened layer.
