Contact Adhesive

Kwik Grip® Gel (vertical)


Kwik Grip Gel is a solvent-based polychloroprene contact adhesive suitable for bonding both absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces. It forms an instant bond on contact of two treated surfaces placed under pressure. Gel Grip is light amber in colour and the gel form allows application without dripping or ‘stringing’.


Kwik Grip Gel is excellent for bonding veneers of timber and laminated plastics, e.g. laminex and formica to bench or table tops, vertical surfaces and areas where clamping or pressing facilities are either not available or difficult to use.

Suitable for use on cork, felt, leather, rubber, canvas, metals. Care should be taken to test plastics prior to use as solvents present will attack some grades such as polystyrene and sheet vinyl.

Clean Up

While wet, adhesive can be removed using mineral turps. Cured adhesive is very difficult to remove. Tools and other equipment on which Gel Grip has dried may be cleaned by soaking in Toluol or lacquer thinner. Excess adhesive on the face of the jointed materials may also be removed with solvent, but care should be taken that the materials themselves are not damaged by the solvent.
