Contact Adhesive

Kwik Grip® Waterbased


Kwik Grip Waterbased is a flexible contact adhesive ideal for bonding flat, close fitting surfaces. Forms a durable, heat and water resistant bond. It dries clear.


Kwik Grip Waterbased is designed for bonding a variety of materials, both absorbent and non-absorbent, e.g. laminated plastics (laminex, formica), MDF, wood, cork, rubber, metals, leather, canvas, fibrous cement sheet and polystyrene foam. It is ideal for hobby work. As it contains no organic solvent, it is suitable for bonding materials sensitive to solvent attack, e.g. polystyrene foams.
