Due to the incredible strength of Adiseal, 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. It exceeded the capacity of the test rig to handle.

Adiseal Ultra clear adhesive is transparent unlike other clear adhesive products that say clear on the tube but turn out cloudy instead on application.

Exterior uses

Adiseal serves as an ideal exterior construction adhesive sealant due to its waterproof properties and ability to withstand various weather conditions.

 

Tip – When using an exterior adhesive, it is better to apply it in thin vertical strips. This allows any water to run down between the exterior adhesive instead of building up on top of the waterproof adhesive. In cold temperatures, this water can freeze and expand. This can place additional pressure on the exterior adhesive.

 

Instant Grab

Adiseal boasts a high initial grab, providing a strong hold on dry or wet surfaces. For even stronger heavy-duty 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.

 

Over Paintable

Adiseal is available in different colours: white, black, grey, brown & ultra clear. It is also possible to paint over cured Adiseal with most paints. Custom coloured Adiseal can also be made by mixing Adiseal Ultra clear construction adhesive sealant with paint.

 

Flexible Construction Adhesive

Adiseal is a flexible construction adhesive which remains non-brittle. Adhesive bonds are exposed to stress due to various external factors like vibration, expansion and contraction from temperature and moisture changes in the air. Non-flexible adhesives are brittle and prone to cracking whereas a flexible adhesive will be able absorb the stresses without becoming brittle or breaking.

Solvent Free

Adiseal is a non solvent based construction adhesive sealant. 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.

 

 

ISEGA Certified

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 a construction adhesive

How to use a construction adhesive

  1. Prepare the Surfaces

    A clean surface provides the best potential for a strong adhesive bond therefore before applying the adhesive, clean surfaces thoroughly to remove dust, grease, or old adhesive.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Press Surfaces Together

    Press the surfaces together firmly to establish proper contact between the adhesive and both materials. Clamps or other supports can help maintain this pressure during the curing process if needed.

  5. 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.

  6. Curing Time

    Let the product cure completely before subjecting it to stress or load. The curing duration may vary based on factors like temperature, humidity, and the adhesive type.

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 and other materials. It can be applied to porous materials without sealing the concrete beforehand, as it bonds directly to porous concrete. Our concrete demonstration block shows its heavy duty adhesive strength in attaching different materials to concrete.

On the concrete demo block, no primer was used to seal it before applying Adiseal adhesive sealant. It was simply cleaned thoroughly by brushing it. A fine brush like a painting brush helps remove fine dust.


Construction adhesive for stone

Adiseal builders adhesive creates a strong, waterproof bond on stone surfaces like marble and granite. Adiseal Hi-Grab offers a powerful instant grip, eliminating the need for temporary supports during setting. Stones don’t require pre-sealing as Adiseal doesn’t bleed or stain them.
