How to use this product

  • General bonding – use contact method or for small porous surfaces join with a wet bond by applying Kwik Grip Advanced to one surface only and immediately press together and lightly clamp.
  • Kwik Grip Advanced can be used as wet bond on absorbent surfaces such as timber, cardboard etc.
  • Contact bonding:
    1 Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dirt, grease, dust or particles.
    2 Using applicator provided with pack, completely cover both surfaces with adhesive and keep surfaces apart until the surface turns from white to clear – approx. 20 minutes. Tip: use dowels or something similar to keep surfaces apart
    3 Position the items carefully, still keeping surfaces apart. When edges are perfectly aligned, remove dowels and working from one edge press surfaces firmly together. Note: Grabs IMMEDIATELY on contact.
    4 Secure 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 achieved after 24 hours.
  • Note: Drying time may be extended in cold and wet weather conditions. Wet bonding:
  1. Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from dirt, grease, dust or particles.
  2. Apply to one surface then bring surfaces together and clamp until dry.
  • Clean up application tools and excess adhesive with damp cloth & water before it dries.

Handy tips

  • What is a contact adhesive? A contact adhesive is an adhesive that must be applied to two surfaces and allowed to dry before surfaces are joined. Once surfaces are pushed together an instant bond forms. Therefore extended pressure or clamping is unnecessary (*Clamping of warped or curled surfaces may be required)
  • Being Low VOC/low odour this product is much safer for use indoors than most other contact adhesives which tend to be solvent-based..
  • Can be used on horizontal or vertical surfaces
  • In the event of prolonged open time, Kwik Grip Advanced will continue to give good contact bond for up to 8 hours.
  • What does this mean? This means that once you have applied the adhesive, if you suddenly need to run out to the shops or go and do another job, you can safely come back within 8 hours and join the two surfaces for a great result! Many solvent-based contact adhesives have a much shorter open time limit.

Safety tips

  • Material is of low hazard.
  • In case of eye contact flush with water for 15 minutes. Remove from skin with soap and water.

Storage and re-use

  • Clean up application tools and excess adhesive with damp cloth & water before it dries.
  • Ensure lid is securely replaced, replace applicator under overcap ready for use next time.
