Construction Adhesive: Best Heavy Duty Building Bond
Adiseal construction adhesive is a heavy duty adhesive to bond different building materials together. It has proven to be the strongest adhesive in an independent strength test in the UK. Whether it is used for professional use or DIY applications in building projects, Adiseal provides a high-strength, heavy duty, flexible, waterproof & durable bond.
What is the best construction adhesive?
In an independent construction adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman in the UK, Adiseal proved to be the best adhesive. Adiseal’s remarkable heavy duty performance surpassed all competitors, displaying over three times the strength of the next best product.
The test had to be abandoned because the screws holding the metal sheet down began to rip out, and the hydraulic ram seal even broke due to Adiseal’s incredible strength. It exceeded the capacity of the test rig to handle.

What about other construction adhesives?
Other adhesives were not tested in this video as they had already been tested previously by Ultimate Handyman. In these previous tests, products from Soudal, Everbuild, Geocel & C-Tec CT1 were tested along with the old formula of Adiseal.
Applications & Benefits
Details of benefits
Strongest waterproof construction adhesive
Adiseal is the strongest waterproof construction adhesive, suitable for dry, damp, wet, and underwater applications. It also offers excellent resistance to mould growth. In tests, Adiseal demonstrated superior performance and the strongest resistance to mould.
Clear construction adhesive in water
In our test, Adiseal Ultra clear construction adhesive outperformed other products by maintaining its clarity in a cup of water, while competing clear products turned white.
Adiseal serves as an ideal exterior construction adhesive due to its waterproof properties and ability to withstand various weather conditions.
Adiseal boasts a high initial grab, providing a strong hold on dry or wet surfaces. For even stronger instant grab adhesive, Adiseal Hi-Grab offers enhanced holding strength, eliminating the need for temporary supports while the adhesive dries.
Gap Filling Adhesive
Adiseal offers high gap fill for uneven surfaces and remains in place without slumping, making it suitable for overhead and vertical applications, ensuring a secure bond.
Flexible Construction Adhesive
Unlike brittle adhesives, Adiseal is flexible, maintaining a strong and flexible adhesive bond even with vibration, contraction, and expansion caused by changing temperatures and moisture conditions. It provides a long-lasting, durable bond that won’t crack or break over time.
Unlike solvent-based adhesives, Adiseal is safe to use on delicate materials like mirror backing and polystyrene, as it is solvent-free. This makes it the ideal choice for projects involving sensitive materials.
No Shrinkage or Cracking
Unlike solvent-based adhesives, Adiseal doesn’t shrink or crack during curing, thanks to its solvent-free composition, resulting in a stronger bond.
EC1 Plus certified
Adiseal contains no VOC and has been certified the top certification, EC1 Plus.
Not all construction adhesives are suitable for use in food preparation areas. Adiseal is suitable and has been certified ISEGA to show it’s suitable for use in kitchens and other food preparation areas.
How to use construction adhesive
How to use construction adhesive
- Prepare the Surfaces
Ensure that both the surfaces you plan to bond with the adhesive are clean, dry, and free from any contaminants such as dust, grease, or loose particles. Remove any old adhesive or finishes from the surfaces if necessary.
- Cut the Cartridge
If you are using a cartridge-based construction adhesive, use a utility knife to cut off the tip of the cartridge. The size of the opening will depend on the desired bead size and the project requirements.
- Apply the Adhesive
Squeeze the trigger of the caulking gun or adhesive applicator to start applying the adhesive in a continuous bead along the surface.
- Press Surfaces Together
Press the two material surfaces firmly together. Apply even pressure to ensure good contact between the adhesive and both surfaces. Consider using clamps or other means to hold the surfaces in place while the adhesive cures, if necessary.
- Clean Excess Adhesive
Use a clean cloth or a putty knife to remove any excess adhesive that may have squeezed out from the bond line.
- Curing Time
Allow the product to cure as per the manufacturer’s instructions. The curing time can vary depending on factors such as temperature, humidity, and the specific adhesive used. Avoid subjecting the bonded assembly to stress or load until the adhesive has fully cured.
Tip: To store Adiseal once opened, leave about 1cm worth of product out of the nozzle and store the tube upright in a cool dry place. Adiseal requires moisture for it to cure. The exposed part out of the nozzle will cure creating a cap. To re-use Adiseal, pull the cured part out or cut the nozzle until the uncured part is reached.
Construction adhesive for concrete
Adiseal is a versatile construction adhesive for concrete surfaces. It doesn’t necessitate sealing the concrete beforehand, as it bonds directly to porous concrete. Our concrete demonstration shows its heavy duty adhesive strength in attaching different materials to concrete.
On the concrete demo block, no primer was used to seal it. It was simply cleaned thoroughly by brushing it. A fine brush like a painting brush helps remove fine dust.
Construction adhesive for stone
Adiseal construction adhesive forms a strong, waterproof bond on various stone surfaces such as marble and granite to name a few. Additionally, Adiseal Hi-Grab boasts a strong heavy-duty instant grab, securely holding stones without requiring temporary supports while the adhesive sets. There is also no need to seal the stones prior to application as Adiseal does not bleed into or stain the stone.
It can also be manufactured in any RAL colour.

Frequently asked questions about construction adhesive
Adiseal has been shown to be the strongest construction adhesive in an independent adhesive strength test carried out by Ultimate Handyman. Adiseal was shown to be over 3 times stronger than the next best product.
Yes, there are construction adhesives specifically designed for outdoor use. These adhesives are formulated to withstand exposure to moisture, temperature variations, and other environmental factors.
The hardness of construction adhesive depends on the type of product. Adiseal has been formulated to stay permanently flexible. This gives it the advantage of providing a durable and non-brittle bond.
It is possible to use construction adhesive as glue if the surface area there it needs to be applied to is large. As a general rule, it is better to use glue for bonding items with small surface areas and adhesive on large surface areas.
Adiseal has been shown to be the strongest construction adhesive in an independent adhesive strength test. Adiseal was found to be over 3 times stronger than any other adhesive tested and the the adhesive bond did not break at even over 3123 psi whereas all other adhesives broke at 1115 psi or less.
Adiseal has been shown to be the strongest construction adhesive in an independent adhesive strength test. It will provide a strong, flexible, waterproof and highly durable adhesive bond on stone of different types like marble and granite to name a few. Adiseal Hi-Grab also has a strong heavy-duty instant grab to hold the stone in place, eliminating the need for temporary supports until the adhesive cures.
In an independent adhesive strength test, when testing the adhesive bond strength on Adiseal, it did not break at over 3123 psi. In fact the screws holding the test rig down to a table started to rip out before the adhesive could break, forcing the test on Adiseal to be stopped prematurely as it was even stronger than the screws.
