Where to Buy

(Liquid) Nailed it!

Selleys Liquid Nails Fast is a high strength construction adhesive with a bond that’s stronger than a winning team’s after Grand Final.

When you want to attach something to the wall without nails – such as skirting boards, architraves or cornices, Liquid Nails Fast gives you a super-fast grab, which minimises slippage on vertical surfaces and reduces the need to support joints while it cures. And, unlike other adhesives, it has a low odour so you can use it indoors without getting into trouble from you know who. Better still, it doesn’t drip, sag or string, so there’s less mess when you use it.

The initial grab works best with porous surfaces and will bond to many building materials including MDF, particle board, timber, plaster board, masonry, concrete, tiles, ceramics, metals, plastics, rubber and glass.

Installing a cornice DIY Tips:

  1. Make sure both surfaces are clean, dry and free of oil, grease and dust.
  2. Cut the cartridge tip and the nozzle to about 5mm.
  3. Use the corking gun to apply a bead of Liquid Nails Fast to the top and bottom of the back of the cornice surface.
  4. Bring surfaces together as soon as possible within 10 minutes. Place cornice firmly into position and press against the wall.
  5. Liquid Nails Fast should be used with mechanical fasteners in structural, critical or high stress applications.
