Which Panel Adhesive Should I Be Using?

Not sure what type of panel adhesive you should be using? Unsure as to the differences between them? Take a look below at panel adhesive explained.

The 3 Main Types of Adhesives

Acrylic Based-

Acrylic Adhesives are manufactured using acrylic or methyl acrylic polymers & fillers. They dry by a loss of water into a substrate (one of which must be porous). They are extremely strong and efficient in bonding multiple objects together and are very environmentally resistant.

Solvent Based-

Solvent based adhesives are manufactured using rubbers & resins. They are a glue or adhesion product that usually comes in the form of a liquid. Resins are dissolved in a volatile solvent to produce a tacky polymer solution, which can be extremely adhesive when dry. These dry by the evaporation of solvent air.

MS/Hybrid Polymer Based-

MS/Hybrid Polymer based adhesives combine polyurethane & silicone technology to deliver hybrid sealant that is extremely versatile. These are a one-part, elastic adhesive based on a modified silane polymer that cures when exposed to moisture to form high-performance elastomer.

Product Type Usage

Usage Examples Benefits

Strong Grip Panel Adhesive 

Solvent Based Internal & External One surface must be porous to enable curing. Applications such as PVC/Aluminium cladding, carpet grippers, wall battens, architrave and skirting boards.
- Enhanced grab adhesive for quick and simple direct bonding.
- Excellent gap filling properties.
- No need for mechanical fixings for many applications.

Strong Grip Solvent Free Adhesive 
Acrylic Based


One surface must be porous to enable curing.

Applications such as architrave, dado rails, skirting boards, PVC panels and polystyrene coving.

- Excellent slump resistance.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Excellent gap filling properties.
*Not as strong as Strong Grip Panel Adhesive*

Multi-X Stuck-It Grab Adhesive 
Polymer Based

Internal & External

Can be applied to damp or wet surfaces and will cure underwater.

All of the above.

- Incredible initial grab.
- Almost limitless applications.
- Versatile.
