Can this be used to glue painted pine boards together?

Asked by Andrea March 20, 2021

Answers

Thank you for the question. The Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive is a latex, water-based product that requires at least one bonding surface to be porous. Depending upon the paint that was used you more than likely will need to sand or rough the surfaces before using to improve adhesion development.

Does this change color, yellow or fade over time or by exposure to sunlight.

I used this to install ceiling tiles. It has not changed color or turned yellow or faded out and it is still holding perfectly. I cannot, however, answer the "exposure to sunlight" part of your question as mine was an indoor application.

How much do I need to put up ceiling tiles in a 12 x 12 room ?

Asked by Blooms October 20, 2020
2
Answers

Thank you for the question. The Loctite Power Grab Express All Purpose Construction Adhesive is a latex, water-based product and may not be suitable for all ceiling tile applications. This adhesive does require at least one bonding surface to be porous. If this is not the case, the adhesive will not work or bond. The success and actual quantity of adhesive needed will depend upon several factors. Type of ceiling tile being installed, type and condition of the ceiling surfaces, and specific ceiling tile manufacturer’s instructions and type of adhesive product recommendations. Approximately 1 tube per 8 square feet may be needed however this calculation may vary so you need to follow the specific ceiling manufacturer’s instructions.

I installed thin brick. this particular product will not only support the weight of the brick to the wall, it does not move much. I've done my entire basement using this product. I am planning on putting cabinets up that is why I did not finish the wall all the way to the end.

Bought this and rated 5 stars after reading online reviews, and using it FOR THIS PARTICULAR PURPOSE: Used for gluing PVC composite outside corner moulding - Royal 6577, also bought at Home Depot - to interior painted drywall. Applied Power Grab to the moulding and then applied it to the wall after about 3 minutes. It adhered instantly, and seems to be holding very well. After 1/2 hour, I tried prying the moulding off the wall with my fingers (first time I'd tried since attaching it) and it won't budge. Good enough!!! Note that there will never be any weight placed on this moulding, which is protecting painted corners in high-traffic areas in the house. Very easy cleanup. In my case, the adhesive that oozed from the sides of the moulding in a couple of places wiped right off the wall with a dry paper towel. And the surface of the moulding cleaned up with stainless steel wool. Your mileage may vary, of course. If someone bumps the molding with a heavy object while moving it - in other words, if they really try to force the issue - the molding could be knocked off the wall, and might take some paint with it, but that's a risk we're willing to take here. I'm sure this works well for other applications, but so far, I've not used it on anything else.

Don't use this if you want a predictable, reliable adhesive. Used this because I've had good luck with PL, but wanted something with faster cure time. Because of some of the negative reviews, I first tested on 3 separate samples before using it on my project (applying hardwood to a curved staircase; gluing wood to wood). The adhesive worked on the samples; each had a strong bond after 30 minutes. However, it didn't work on the real project. Each step was weighed down with ~120 lbs of tile bundles, and more than half of them had corners lifting up when the weight was removed after 2 hours. I was able to lift the wood off one step with my bare hands. Not what I expect from a product with the name "Power Grab". Now I have to do remedial work on a brand new install. This product will cost me way more time than I would have saved from the faster cure time.

Response from Henkel CorporationJun 12, 2018
Thank you for taking time to share your feedback. We are so sorry to hear about your experience. The Loctite Power Grab Express All Purpose Adhesive is not suitable for the intended use described nor would it have been recommended. This is a water based, latex adhesive which is not designed for glued-floor applications or stair case construction. The water content of these kinds of products can cause issues in stair remodeling or building situations such as cupping, warping, or curling to occur regardless of steps taken to try and prevent it. The best products for these types of projects are polyurethane adhesives designed for glue-floored installations and projects, especially in remodeling situations. More information pertaining to these kinds of projects can be obtained from the National Wood Flooring Association.

Glued baseboard to wall tile
Used it to glue baseboard to ceramic wall tile. Worked well and easy to use.

Brilliant stuff!
Brilliant stuff, easy to apply and easy to trim off after. Be SURE to clamp it securely and get the best surface to surface fit you can. The natural porosity of the wood will allow for penetration. When you clamp and glue don't wipe the glue, let it bead as it is easier to trim off as a bead.
