I've used this PU adhesive for years now for so many tasks: joinery, dry lining where it inst worth mixing up adhesive, creating laminated structures (glulam and laminates), replacing broken tiles where levelling is critical, binding crumbing walls for fixings, even repairing a panel on my car where the fixing had to be cut out and couldn't be replaced. When used with biscuits you can create butt joints in timber that are stronger than the wood itself. When fixing through plasterboard into the wall behind you can use this to support the fixing and just use normal plugs and screws. Initial cure to reworking is about 45 minutes with really good strength after about 4 hours.
It is very easy to clean up when uncured using any solvent I've tried (acetone, alcohol, proprietary cleaner mixes). Screwfix's No-Nonsense foam gun cleaner with the spray nozzle is perfect and I always keep one to hand when I am using this adhesive to clean off my fingers and any clothing that gets soiled with it.
Be aware that there is a cut off point between uncured and fully cured where you should not disturb it. Once it has skinned over do not expose it to a solvent of cut it or you will disrupt the curing and it will not expand properly to fill the gaps as it all rushes out of the hole you just made. It is basically a low expansion PU foam, so it behaves exactly the same during curing. Lightly wet surfaces to be bonded to get a better bond.
Once cured you'll need to use physical removal. I find a new Stanley knife blade cuts it off flush cleanly. I've not yet encountered any job that it has gone wrong with.
It is expensive for what it is, but it is a time saver over using more traditional adhesives and you only need to carry one tool (plus a solvent).

i used this to stick down a wooden breakfast bar it has no other support its just bonded with this to the stone worktop . It hasn't moved for 2 years despite some heavy use. This stuff is very very strong.

I put 3 shelves up in a cupboard for a customer. Nowhere to put screws without ruining the wall exterior. So I used this stuff. A year later, the shelves haven't moved a millimetre, and all 3 are loaded up with clothes and shoes etc. I now use it all the time, where I would have used beading and screws for support. And if you're careful, you can't even see this adhesive. But be warned, DO NOT get it on your skin or clothes. It does NOT come off, even before it has hardened. I haven't yet found a solvent to get it off. I don't think there is one. And sandpapering your fingers isn't pleasant. Very highly recommended adhesive for all jobs.
