Liquid Nails Rapid Cure is an advanced, high performance polyurethane construction adhesive that cures in just 10 minutes*. It provides the ultimate strength in the Liquid Nails range. It is a durable, waterproof bond even when bonding two non porous surfaces. It bonds most building substrates.


  • Fast cure in 10 minutes*.
  • More than twice the strength of conventional solvent- based construction adhesives.
  • Waterproof - Uncompromising durability, with excellent water, weather and heat resistance
  • Can be used to bond most materials, and for most interior & exterior applications.
  • Its advanced formulation exceeds the requirements of BS-EN204 D4 for durability.
  • Resistant (after full cure) to heat to 100°C and cold to -15°C
  • Does not drip, sag or string between panels.
  • Bridges gap up to 3mm hence can be used on rough and ill-fitting construction materials.
  • Product expands slightly as it cures.
  • Dried adhesive is paintable.
  • *Expect longer times for very 'dry' timber, heavier objects and less porous surfaces, or in colder weather. Spraying surfaces with a very light mist of water may help to speed up cure

Where can this product be used?

  • Where extra water resistance is essential. eg. Exterior applications such as decking.
  • Where extra strength is required.
  • Where extra temperature resistance is required. eg. Applications where metal substrates are exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Plastic substrates which are sensitive to solvent based adhesives are used.
  • Metal installations in which solvent based adhesives will be slow to cure.
  • Liquid Nails Rapid Cure is also suitable for typical construction applications such as:
  • Sheet flooring to joists
  • Metal or aluminium door strips to floors or walls
  • Timber or fibre cement sheeting to cement block or brick walls
  • Masonite 

What materials is this product suitable for?

  • Timber
  • MDF
  • Plasterboard
  • Plastics (Pre-test to determine suitability)
  • Masonry
  • Concrete
  • Particleboard
  • Metals
  • Rubber
  • Tiles

Size 325g Cartridge
Colours Translucent
Technology Polyurethane
Use Exterior 

        Do not swallow. Use in well ventilated areas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

  1. Ensure surface is clean and free from dust and grease. Remove any pooled water.
  2.  Cut cartridge tip, fit nozzle and cut to desired opening (5mm) then insert into a caulking gun.
  3.  Apply bead along length of one bonding surface. On broad surfaces, apply beads every 40cm. (‘zig-zag’ beads are more appropriate on surfaces of moderate width; eg shiplap panels.)
  4. Position pieces and press firmly together. Fix with sufficient nails, screws or clamping to hold load and achieve contact over total bond area. Repositionable for up to 5 mins after fitting.
  5. Allow to set for 15-20 mins for porous surfaces before removing temporary fasteners or clamps.* 


  • *Expect longer dry times for very ‘dry’ timber, heavier objects and less porous surfaces, or in cold weather. Spraying surfaces with a very light mist of water may help to speed cure.
  • Should not be applied below 5°C
  • Do not use as the sole bonding agent for structural bonding.
  • Not for permanent water immersion. 
  • Gloves should be worn when applying Liquid Nails Rapid Cure. Avoid contact with skin.
  • Adhesive requires moisture to cure, therefore drying times will vary depending on temperature, humidity and the porosity of materials bonded. Spraying surfaces with a very light mist of water may help speed up cure.
  • Liquid Nails Rapid Cure expands slightly as it cures.
  • Liquid Nails Rapid Cure should always be used in conjunction with mechanical fasteners in structural, critical or high stress applications.
  • Can be used on rough and ill fitting surfaces. Can bridge gaps up to 3mm. 
  • Wet - Clean tools and surfaces immediately with acetone or
    mineral turps
  • Dry – remove by chiselling, scraping or sanding
