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. If the surface is non-porous eg glass or metal, firstly clean the surface with Mineral Turpetine and then again with Methylated Spirits, and allow to dry. If there is old difficult to remove residue such as old flaky paint, we recommend using paint stripper such as SELLEYS KWIK STRIP SMART, and allow to dry. On wet timber pooled water should be wiped off. Highly 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.
  • Remove the outer cap and unscrew nozzle from pressure pack. Cut tip of the nozzle at a 45o angle (slightly larger than the gap to be filled) and replace the nozzle onto the pack.
  • Supporting the nozzle with the fore finger, press the nozzle opening against the joint until the gap filler comes into contact with the surface. As the product reaches the surface, move along the joint in one smooth action.
  • Apply a bead of product along the length of the joist, stud or batten. On broad flat surfaces apply beads every 40cm.
    Fix the surfaces with sufficient nails, screws or clamping to hold load and achieve contact over the total bond area.
  • The product is repositionable for up to 20 minutes after fitting.
  • Allow the adhesive to set (at least 24 hours) before removing any temporary fasteners or clamping.
    For faster grab, apply to one surface only, press together and pull apart. Allow surfaces to dry 2-5 minutes before firmly joining.
  • The time it takes to form a strong bond depends on the nature and conditions of the application. In most situations strong bonds can be achieved after 24 hours and will continue to strengthen over a 2-3 day period. The product will fully cure up to 7 days.
  • When the product is still wet it can be removed with mineral turpetine, otherwise if the product is dry it can be removed by sanding or scraping, we recommend using a 50mm ROTA COTA Soft Grip Scraper. Clean any excess from your hands.
  • To eliminate squeaks in tongue and groove flooring, apply a bead of Liquid nails into the groove or each board when installing.

Handy tips

  • When applying to one surface, ensure sufficient LIQUID NAILS is used so that some adhesive extrudes out when surfaces are brought together then wipe off excess if necessary. If glue is not visible, then insufficient contact may not have been made between the surfaces and a weak joint may result.
  • LIQUID NAILS should always be used in conjuction with mechanical fasteners in structural, critical or high stress applications.
  • LIQUID NAILS is sometimes called LIQUID NAILS (SOLVENT) to differentiate it from the other Liquid Nails products.
  • LIQUID NAILS shrinks slightly on curing.
  • Cured LIQUID NAILS residues can be removed by holding a rag soaked in Mineral Turps against the residue, then rubbing the residue once softened. Mineral Turps penetrates in this way at approximately 1 mm per hour.
  • When Liquid Nails joints are directly exposed to the weather, it is recommended to seal around the edges with a slilicone sealant to prevent water ponding inside the joint and thus weaken the joint.
  • LIQUID NAILS is NOT recommended for use on mirrors or polystyrene. Use LIQUID NAILS MIRROR METAL GLASS for mirrors and LIQUID NAILS FAST for polystyrene.
  • 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.
