Why Adiseal is a great adhesive for PVC

Adiseal adhesive offers numerous benefits when it comes to bonding PVC materials. One of the standout features of Adiseal is its exceptional strength, as proven by independent tests conducted by Ultimate Handyman. It has been demonstrated to be the strongest construction adhesive available, ensuring a robust bond between PVC and other materials.

Adiseal Strength Test

In an independent adhesive strength test conducted by Ultimate Handyman, Adiseal displayed extraordinary strength, surpassing its closest competitor by more than threefold. During the test, the exceptional strength of Adiseal was evident as the screws securing the test rig started to tear out, leading to the test being halted. Even at a pressure exceeding 3123 psi, Adiseal remained intact and steadfast, showcasing its unmatched strength and durability.

Adiseal Adhesive & Sealant vs Adiseal Hi-Grab

Adiseal adhesive & sealant exhibits a strong initial grab, but for an even greater level of grab, the Adiseal Hi-Grab adhesive is recommended. Both construction adhesives offer comparable final bond strength.

How to use a PVC adhesive

How to use PVC adhesive

  1. Surface Preparation

    Clean the surfaces you intend to bond with the adhesive. Remove any dirt, dust, grease, or loose particles using a suitable cleaner or solvent. Ensure the surfaces are dry before proceeding.

  2. Application

    Apply the PVC adhesive to one of the surfaces. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the amount of adhesive to use. Be cautious not to apply an excessive amount that could result in excessive squeeze-out or messiness.

  3. Spreading

    Use a brush or applicator to spread the adhesive evenly over the surface. Ensure the adhesive covers the entire bonding area uniformly.

  4. Joining the Surfaces

    Press the two PVC surfaces together firmly, aligning them properly. Apply pressure to ensure good contact between the adhesive and the surfaces. If needed, use clamps or other suitable methods to hold the materials in place while the adhesive cures.

  5. Curing Time

    Allow sufficient time for the adhesive to cure. Keep in mind that curing time can vary based on factors such as temperature, humidity, and adhesive type.

  6. Clean-Up

    Clean any excess adhesive immediately using a suitable solvent or cleaner. Be careful not to disturb the bonded surfaces during this process.

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.

PVC items

Adiseal can effectively bond and provide a strong hold to a wide range of PVC items. Here are some examples:

The versatility of Adiseal adhesive & sealant makes it a reliable option for bonding various types of PVC items, providing a long-lasting and durable hold.


Adiseal adhesive and sealant is available in the following colours:

Adiseal can also be manufactured in any RAL colour.

Best adhesive for PVC wall panels & PVC bathroom cladding

Adiseal is an ideal adhesive for PVC wall panels & best adhesive for PVC bathroom cladding, offering exceptional strength, waterproof properties, and flexibility. It can effectively bond PVC panels & PVC bathroom cladding to various surfaces like brick, concrete, plaster, wood, stone, tile, marble, and more.

For optimal results, it is recommended to apply Adiseal in thin vertical strips, especially in areas where water may seep behind the wall panels. This prevents water accumulation on top of the adhesive, which can freeze and cause added pressure on the bond during cold temperatures.

Best adhesive for uPVC trim

Adiseal is a great adhesive to stick uPVC trim. It will glue uPVC trim to various building materials when installing windows or other construction applications. It will provide a flexible, waterproof and highly durable bond.

PVC glue

Adiglue can be used to bond PVC, but it should be noted that it is not as flexible or strong as Adiseal construction adhesive & construction sealant. While Adiglue is less brittle than super glues, it may not provide the same level of flexibility and strength.

Helpful Advice and Tips

Minimize gap

When aligning materials that aren’t perfectly matched, gaps may form when pressed together. Certain adhesives and glues, especially those that are runny or shrink during curing (such as solvent and water-based types), can leave these gaps filled only with air, leading to a weaker bond. While some adhesives like polyurethane expand into these gaps, creating a foam-like material, this type of adhesive often exhibits weak cohesive strength, resulting in a less robust bond. Adhesion failure occurs when the adhesive separates from the material’s surface, while cohesive failure happens when the adhesive material itself breaks apart. Optimal bonding strength is achieved by minimizing any gaps through cutting, filing, or sanding the material surfaces to ensure a close match and firmly pressing the two materials together.

Scratch surface

Gently scratching smooth materials can increase the available surface area for adhesive bonding. However, avoid scratching too deeply, as this may result in gaps and weaken the bond, as previously noted.

Adhesion promoter

Certain materials, particularly plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene, and polyurethane, can pose challenges for bonding. Utilizing a suitable adhesion promoter can enhance the adhesive’s ability to adhere to these materials.

Clean surface

Before applying adhesive or sealant, ensure surfaces are clean. Remove any oil, grease, dirt, and dust from both surfaces using solvents, alcohol, or detergent-based cleaners. For dust removal, utilize a vacuum or a fine brush such as a painting brush. Avoid applying adhesive to painted surfaces, as the paint may not securely adhere to the material, potentially causing it to peel off before the adhesive fails.

Wetting surface

Some products, like Adiseal adhesive sealant, depend on moisture for curing, typically sourced from the air or the applied material. When using adhesive between two non-porous materials such as metal or plastic, it’s recommended to lightly sprinkle or brush a small amount of water before applying the adhesive.

Apply the adhesive

To achieve a stronger bond, cover as much surface area as possible when applying adhesive. After application, evenly spread the adhesive thoroughly using a spatula or plastic card.

Temporary supports

Adhesives need time to cure and reach full strength. During this curing process, it’s vital to prevent materials from shifting. Utilize temporary supports like clamps, weights, tape, or balanced objects to hold items in place. Apply firm pressure without damaging the materials. Avoid moving them during curing, as this may compromise bond strength. Once the adhesive has fully cured, safely remove the temporary supports.

Clean excess

After pressing the two materials together, promptly wipe away any excess adhesive with a cloth before it cures. Once the adhesive has cured, removal may necessitate mechanical means. For example, softer adhesives like Adiseal can be cut with a sharp tool such as a knife or clay wire, while harder adhesives may require chiseling or sanding.

Where to buy PVC adhesive

To buy PVC adhesive in the UK, please contact us for details of your local stockist. For other countries that do not have a Adiseal distributor, you can buy from www.guglue.com

Mechanical fixing

It’s also possible to use a PVC adhesive together with mechanical fixings like screws to further strengthen the attachment between the PVC item and the other material. Adiseal Ultimate metal drill bit is a great product to drill PVC and other materials. Adiseal Ultimate masonry multi-material drill bit is also a good product to drill into PVC and other materials but the metal drill bit provides a cleaner drilled hole.
