Brilliant adhesive, will stick to anything and form a good bond. But remember to use gloves! Or your hands will end up a very weird colour

Rated 1 out of 5Â by FirmbertFayre Good glue, poor dispenser
This glue sets very strong, but the tube it comes in is rubbish. Apply any pressure to force it into a tight gap / corner etc. and the glue either oozes around the edges of the plunger making a right mess of the sealant gun, or the nozzle pops off. Glue everywhere. No wonder plastic gloves are supplied! PU glue is PU glue, and there are better alternatives to this.

It makes a very strong and reliable bond on a variety of materials. I use it on oak worktops and staircases and I haven't found anything better.
Clamp it for 5 minutes and it bonds, after a couple of hours it amazingly strong.
Clean up when it's still soft with heavy duty wipes.

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).
