Glue or Soap

Canteen meals are generally not so impressived with those who have to eat them – and sometimes with good reason. “What kind of pie do you call this?” asked one customer indignantly.
“What’s it taste like?” asked the cook.
“Glue!”
“Then it’s plum pie – the tomato pie tastes like soap.”

When installing timber floorboards, installers have to use glue most of the times. For instance, installing floor boards on stairs or pre-fitting end trims.

We choose the multipurpose constructive adhesive which is particularly suitable for bonding timber planks and wall panels to timber frames, like SikaBond Glue product which can be found in most hardware shop. It’s suitable for using with timber, steel, aluminum, concrete and plywood, and it is waterproof and paintable.

Other advantages include: fast drying, non-sagging, easy to be cleaned up with mineral turps (not soap) and economic in price.

Before using the SikaBond glue, all surfaces should be clean, dry and free from oil. Apply appropriate SikaBond to one of the surfaces then press the surfaces together and hold overnight with something heavy, like books. Another tip from experience installer is, put glue bottle under the sunlight for a while then you will find it become soft enough to use.

DIY user needs to keep in mind that this product is highly flammable, so, always keep away from flame and sparks.
