Flood Protection Adhesive Finds New Use as Caulking and All-Purpose Adhesive

Posted By ASC, Friday, May 5, 2017

When Smart Vent Products Inc. introduced its HurriBond™, adhesive, the product was initially meant to be used when installing the company’s flood vents. These vents are installed to allow water to flow through buildings, saving them from the pressure of flood waters that would otherwise destroy them.

But the company found that its clients didn’t only use HurriBond™ for its intended purpose. The fast-curing, sandable and paintable adhesive was being used as an all-purpose glue and as caulking. Construction professionals say that the adhesive doesn’t crack or peel the way conventional caulking does and that its high bond strength made it suitable for a wide range of applications.


Smart Vent adhesive chemists have done a few tests of their own. They’ve used the product to mend a leaking fish tank filled with water, glued dumbbells together, and have even used it to pull a vehicle along. Of course, the adhesive is still used for flood vent installation as was originally intended.
