What to Look for in a Construction Adhesive

When searching for the perfect construction adhesive or sealant, there are a number of factors to look out for. Depending on your project, you may need a sealant that is water resistant, chemical resistant, odourless or multi-purpose etc. Before you choose your adhesive, it is important to know what you’re looking for. Take notes of the different product characteristics required to fulfil your needs and search for an adhesive that can lie up to these expectations. Below, we are going to go over some of the most important characteristics for modern day sealants and adhesives:

Water Resistant

This quality is especially important for adhesives that will be exposed to the elements. Many adhesives simply cannot withstand harsh weather conditions. This is why they lose their adhesion over time and the bond usually fails. In times like this, you’ll need a waterproof adhesive that can adhere in wet conditions. CT1 from C-TEC is a water-resistant sealant and construction adhesive ideal for such applications. It is used to repair gutter leaks and boating leaks, as well as sealing bath tubs and showers.

Strong Bond

The strength of your construction adhesive is crucial, especially for heavy-duty applications. If you need to vertically bond materials such as stone, brick, concrete and stone etc. you can trust Power Grab ‘n’ Bond to get the job done. This strong heavy-duty adhesive is made for such applications, creating permanent bond between even the most difficult materials.

Flexible and Adaptable

Many materials require a flexible adhesive that can resist movement and tolerate vibrations etc. CT1 is a flexible sealant with a 350% elongation rate. This makes CT1 the most adaptable and flexible construction sealant in the market.
