Liquid Nails has announced the release of a new product intended for the construction industry. The FUZE*IT all-surface adhesive uses a hybrid polymer blend that provides double the bonding strength of traditional fasteners and is resistant to harsh weather and extreme temperatures. High strength bonds are achieved, even when the substrates are extremely hot, frozen or wet.
The fast-curing adhesive allows for repositioning of components, while curing quickly, thereby limiting the chance of shifting prior to full adhesion. The packaging is designed to protect the adhesive, even if left outdoors in wet conditions overnight, and bonds “almost any” substrates together, according to a company spokesperson.
PPG Architectural Coatings, which owns the Liquid Nails brand, notes that the new adhesive will target both construction professionals and the DIY market in response to a demand for time-saving, yet versatile and effective adhesives. Durability and environment-friendliness have been achieved through the development of a plasticizer-free adhesive that is low in VOCs.
