Adiseal Solvent-Free Grab Adhesive: Strongest in Test
Adiseal solvent-free grab adhesive provides a high-strength bond on many construction bonding applications. In an independent adhesive strength test, Adiseal has been shown to be the strongest solvent-free grab adhesive where it was over 3 times stronger than an other adhesive. Adiseal provides a flexible, waterproof and durable bond.
Strongest solvent-free grab adhesive
To find out the best grab adhesive, Ultimate Handyman carried out several tests to determine the best product. To test the adhesive strength test, each adhesive was applied between wood to metal then a hydraulic ram was used to break the bond and the pressure was measured at breaking point.
In the bond strength test involving wood and metal, Adiseal exhibited remarkable resilience, withstanding pressures exceeding 3123+ psi. In contrast, all other competitors failed at 1115 psi or lower, establishing Adiseal as more than three times stronger than the closest rival. The chart below vividly illustrates Adiseal’s exceptional strength.

Higher instant grab
Adiseal offers high initial grab, but for an even higher initial grab, consider using Adiseal Hi-Grab solvent free grab adhesive.
Adiseal Hi-Grab stands as the ultimate instant grab adhesive, engineered to provide heavy-duty power grab and exceptional bond strength. This waterproof adhesive offers flexibility, making it well-suited for a range of applications, both in dry and wet conditions, indoors and outdoors. Utilizing the same professional-grade polymer technology as our Adiseal construction adhesive and sealant, Adiseal Hi-Grab elevates instant hold adhesive to new levels. Its thicker consistency ensures superior initial holding power, surpassing even the performance of Adiseal adhesive and sealant.
For most adhesive bonding applications, we recommend using Adiseal solvent-free grab adhesive & sealant over Adiseal Hi-Grab. This preference arises because Adiseal Hi-Grab is notably thick, requiring greater force to bring two items together and necessitating a high-quality caulking gun (sealant gun) for smooth dispensing due to its thickness.
Grab on vertical surfaces
When bonding items in a vertical arrangement, the potential for downward sliding is heightened as gravity pulls the item down while the adhesive resists. Adiseal Hi-Grab stands out in securely bonding heavy items on vertical surfaces, eliminating the necessity for temporary supports. Its exceptional grip effectively prevents downward movement, leading to savings in both time and labor costs.

How to use a solvent-free grab adhesive
How to use a solvent-free grab adhesive.
- Surface Preparation
To achieve a strong bond, properly prepare surfaces by ensuring they are clean, dry, and free from dust, grease, paint, or contaminants. Employ a fine brush, such as a paintbrush, to remove any fine dust from surfaces like concrete.
- Cut the Nozzle
If your grab adhesive is in a tube, trim the nozzle to create an appropriately sized opening. The size of the nozzle opening will dictate the thickness of the adhesive bead.
- Apply the Adhesive
Spread an even adhesive bead along one surface. Broader adhesive coverage enhances the strength of the bond compared to limited coverage.
- Join the Surfaces
After applying the adhesive, bring the two surfaces together. Exert firm pressure to ensure proper contact between the surfaces.
Certain products offer a brief adjustment period to align bonded items. Utilize this time to make any necessary adjustments, gently sliding surfaces side to side to facilitate adhesive distribution and enhance bonding.
- Curing Time
Let the adhesive cure according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. The curing time can vary based on the specific adhesive and environmental conditions.
If there is any excess adhesive that squeezed out during the bonding process, remove it using an appropriate solvent or as instructed by the adhesive manufacturer.
After usage, tightly seal the adhesive tube or cartridge for future use, ensuring it stays in optimal condition.
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.
