        A:  Thank you for the question. We are sorry you are having this difficulty with Power Grab Express All-Purpose Pressure Pack Construction Adhesive. If you did slide the red tab marked “OPEN” from left to right to regulate the flow and nothing happened, it is possible the pressure pack may be expired product and should have been returned to the store for refund or replacement.

          Q:What is the dry time for this product?
          by|Jan 3, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for the question. Normal dry time for Loctite Power Grab All-Purpose Construction Adhesive, in most applications, can be achieved in about 12 hours or more depending upon the porosity of the substrates being bonded. At least one bonding surface must be porous. Applications on low porosity surfaces may take 7 days or longer to achieve full strength. Dry time is dependent on temperature, humidity, porosity of substrate, and amount of adhesive applied.

            Q:Can I use this to glue 20" tiles to Cement backer board
            by|Dec 27, 2022
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Construction Adhesive is not well suited for use on most cement backer boards and would not be recommended. This is not to say you cannot try but without knowing the project details and because there are several types of backer boards available on the market it is not possible to predict your results. It is recommended that you test your intended application first to determine suitable and acceptable results before starting the project.

                      A:  This can't be used for much of anything! It was so thick it would barely come out of the tube, and did not stick to anything I tried it on. It was useless and a total waste of money.

                        Q:how many tubes do I need for 6 cases of Le maison ceiling tiles
                        by|Dec 5, 2022
                        1 Answer
                        Answer This Question

                        A:  Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, Loctite does not know how many tubes you would need as this has never been calculated for Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Construction Adhesive. However, according to the ceiling tile manufacturer, you'll adhere approximately 8 tiles per tube of adhesive. In general, daubs/mounds of adhesive are used approximately 1 inch to 1 ¼ inch, placed at each corner and one in the center. It is important that Loctite Power Grab adhesive is only used to bond ceiling tiles to clean, unpainted drywall ceilings. We do not recommend using on lime, lime-cement, dry plaster, and popcorned or textured ceiling finishes. We do recommend you consult the ceiling tile manufacturer for additional information about using adhesives with their product and for complete installation guidance. Keep in mind, temporary bracing will be required to support the tiles until the adhesive is fully cured.

                          A:  Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, Loctite Power Grab All-Purpose Construction Adhesive cannot bond solid cellular PVC vinyl to itself.

                                A:  Yes it can be used for a marble backsplash. I install marble showers and vanities, 9/10 times we use silicone to stick it to the wall. Then once you have caulked the seams make sure there?s no holes for moisture behind the backsplash.
