I used this to glue down some loose bricks by our flower bed and it's worked well. Held up nicely after all this time. Dust it, and even spray it down and let it dry completely. I wasn't able to cover the gaps between the bricks and concrete, but that's ok. It's still held down nicely. It's not a flower bed that anyone sits on or jumps on, but once in a while if a car is parked very closely to it, someone may step on it, which is why it came loose in the first place. So far this has been the best solution. If we added concrete, it would've made it thicker.

I needed to add some detail pieces to my exterior deck stairs due to some gaps and deterioration from wet weather. I picked up this product to try it out. The bond was very strong and worked basically immediately. I've used products before where I had to nail the pieces in to hold the until full curing time, but there was no need with this product. After only an hour on a 70 degree day the bond was stuck for good. Also, I had some severe rain and wind 48 hours later, which is after curing time, and the bond was still in perfect shape.

Mine came with a 11 page msds sheet and 2 pages of instructions for use.
In my case I have a laminated counter top in the kitchen, where the laminate curves down across the front, their are places it is becoming delaminated from the particle board surface.
I picked this adhesive due to on the packaging it says' don't just bond it, GRAB it '
' Instant grab ! '
' the extreme grip ultimate grab construction adhesive. '
It says it works on a variety of surfaces, so I am going to see how it works on this project.
Well it was not strong enough to hold the laminate in place by it self to keep it from bending out wards.
keep in mind that the laminate is all ready formed to the curve so this glue had to hold it in place with out clamps is all. which I am doing with my fingers in the picture how ever I do not have the time to stand here all day.
I have used a lot of different materials in my calking gun, but this stuff was vary difficult to use, it required me to use both hands on the trigger to squeeze this stuff out of the tube and when i did use one hand I had to use so much force it made it impossible to use my other hand to guide the calking gun to put down a nice smooth bead and it quickly turned a 5 min job into a 45 min job .
I only used a 1/4 or 25 % of the tube before I had enough of this stuff and threw the rest of it away as I would have no interest in trying to use this stuff again in the future.
As getting it out of the tube was that difficult.
Which is odd as it did not seem to be such a thick compound that it should require so much force to get it out of the tube.

Hello and thank you for being a Sika customer. We are sorry to hear about this incident. From your description, you have expired material. You should not use that much force to dispense the product. The older the product is, the higher the extrusion force is. The expiration date is on the bottom of the cartridge, opposite side of the nozzle. Please return the product to home Depot for a replacement.
Tried out for the first time setting 6"x70" Hardi-Backer board vertical on a counter top face, with no fasteners or bracing. Went thru the whole tube. Did the job - was able to go right to setting edging without movement. The thickness is a challenge to work with - and 5-8 days to fully cure! 24 hours later is still rubbery and tacky.
You also want to try a new product by Liquid Nails - FUSE IT - Found exclusively at the Home Depot in fact. Just the right thickness without being hard to work with. It's my go to adhesive - been thru half a dozen tubes in my tile projects easy. Used FUSE IT to set all the vertical tiles in this project pictures - also great vertical holding power. Watch the videos here on the FUSE IT page. Cures in HOURS - not days. Also used FUSE IT to glue back on a micro-wave oven handle that came off in the wife's hands. Did not expect it to hold - 24 hours later back to normal use - been fixed for weeks now - and micro-wave oven doors open hard. FUSE IT also fixed the sloppy wiggle on towel rack fittings that had been an announce for years.

I used this to put Sika Pro Select R-Matte Plus-3 rigid foam boards on a ceiling between rafters. This worked better than any other adhesives I've tried. It still needs to be held up until it dries. But it does have a decent amount of 'grab' and I was actually able to manually push the board up and then let go of it long enough to grab a board and my battery drill to put a temporary board across to hold it in place. I also used it on a couple of walls between the studs and it provided enough grab on its own for the board to stay in place.
The only downside is that it is really viscous - which of course is part of why it's so grabby. Keeping the cartridge warm helps. But you still need a heavy duty caulk gun. Initially I had left it in the cold and tried to dispense it with a cheap old gun - I nearly broke the gun and I thought the stuff was dried out. Storing the adhesive in a warm room and getting a better caulk gun did the trick.
