Good - but it does expand
Used this to bond small sections of plasterboard to pack-out gaps where I'd removed a door frame. Despite what other reviews said, this stuff does expand quite a bit, so you really need to hold the item in place for a good 30 mins or so whilst it cures.

Good expanding foam adhesive. Product is easy to use, does what it says on the tin. Dries in approx 5 mins. The only down comment I will make is that you need to use it all in one go because the foam dries in the nozzle quite quickly which is then very hard to clean.

Great stuff - But!
I have been replacing the skirting in several rooms in the house using MDF skirting and grip adhesive. In one room there was really large gaps between the plaster wall and the brick, which was a big ask for the usual grip adhesive and meant faffing about with packing and screwing etc. I decided to try this product after searching the Screwfix website and the positive reviews meant it was an option. Results were very good, perfect adhesion/gap fill and the skirting was welded to the wall, although you will have to brace the skirting for a while, as the foam will try and push it off. Major problem and the reason for the average rating, is that after running just one 3M bead down my first length of skirting, the can would not turn off and over the next couple of hours continued to produce magnificent gourd like sculptures which were unstoppable, until the can emptied. Now if the can had cost 2 quid I would have taken the hit and got another but at 10 quid plus I returned the can to Screwfix with a 1M sculpture attached and got a replacement. Yet to try the second but hopefully I can get more than one length on with it. Just wished I'd taken a picture of it.
