It has a thick non-runny consistency. It is brown in colour and available in a 600ml sausage or a 900g and 300ml cartridge. Uses  Suitable for bonding timber, plasterboard, MDF, particleboard, masonry, concrete, tiles & ceramics, metals, plastics, rubber and glass.  Used as the sole means of bonding or as a component in a dual bonding situation  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 / hardboard to timber or floor boards  Wallboard or panelling to wood or metal frames  Cork tiles to timber, fibre cement or plaster  Timber flooring to yellow tongue in conjunction with mechanical fixings to avoid later squeaking. Features/Advantages  Meets or exceeds requirements specified by Australian Standard AS 2329 (1999)  Flexible enough to respond to normal shrinkage and thermal movement between building components.  Suitable for interior and exterior applications.  Easy to extrude at low temperatures.  Fast grab and rapid cure without skinning too quickly, thus ensuring good wetting out on to surfaces to be bonded.  Does not roll off when applied onto wet timber, even in cold weather.  Does not drip, sag or string between panels.  Bridges gap up to 9mm hence can be used on rough and ill-fitting construction materials.  Dried adhesive is paintable. Instructions for Use/Application Instructions The following should only be used as a guide and the installer should apply all Australian Standards, BCA/NZBC requirements, and best practices when using Liquid Nails.  Surfaces to be bonded should be free of oil, grease and dust. On wet timber, pooled water should be wiped off the surface.  Cut cartridge tip, fit nozzle and cut end to desired opening (approx 5 mm diameter)  Direct a bead along the length of the joist, stud or batten. On broad flat surfaces apply beads every 450mm.  Fix with sufficient nails, screws or clamping to hold load and achieve contact over the total bond area. Wet bonds are repositionable for up to 20 mins after fitting.  Allow adhesives to set (at least 24 hours) before removing any temporary fasteners or clamping.  For faster grab – use the contact bond method – apply to one surface only, press together and pull apart. Allow surfaces to dry 2-5 minutes before firmly joining. Surfaces should not be kept apart for longer than 20 minutes as to do so will impair bond strength Storage Store unopened sausages/cartridges below 300C in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Unopened sausages/cartridges can be stored for 18 months from the date of manufacture. Opened sausages/cartridges may skin and form a lump near the opening. Discard any lumps or skin and remaining product can be used. www.selleystrade.com.au Page 1 of 2
