High Performance, Multi-Purpose, Gap-Filling Adhesive
LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) is a solvent-borne, filled rubber resin,
developed to bond virtually any rigid materials together, regardless
of the evenness of the surfaces.
LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) is a high strength, one part, gap-filling
adhesive specially formulated to bond a large variety of materials,
such as plywood, blockwood, chipboard, hardboard, laminated plastics,
uPVC (excluding foamed PVC), rigid insulation materials (excluding
expanded polystyrene), metal sheeting (including aluminium, steel,
galvanised iron, tin plate and non-ferrous metals) to themselves or
to brick, stone and breeze block, sand/cement screeds, concrete, plaster,
plasterboard and insulation boards. If further details of a particular
application are required, please contact our Technical Departmentat
the address below.
LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) is suitable for bonding aluminium and
uPVC stair nosings, carpet edging strips, carpet grippers, building
boards, timber battens, etc. to stairs, floor boards and walls.
LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) can also be used successfully for bonding
wall signs, window frames, sink units, fitted furniture (including
light fittings) to a variety of surfaces; in the building of home
extensions, caravans and cars.
Although LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) will bond mirrors, care should
be taken to ensure no reaction takes place with the coating, as this
may occasionally occur.
Where LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) is used externally, it must be protected
from driving rain, ponding water or permanently wet situations.
Surfaces to be bonded must be clean, structurally sound, dry and free
from dust and loose material. Porous surfaces, such as plaster and
fibre cement board, should first be primed with LAYBOND ISOBOND
(diluted 1:6 with clean water) and allowed to dry thoroughly before
LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) is applied. Building panels should be
cut to shape beforehand.
Fix the cartridge into the extruder.
Cut the nozzle to the desired width and angle and push a nail through
the nozzle to break the seal at the base.
a) Stair Nosings, Window Frames,
Apply a continuous bead (usually 6mm in diameter) to the surface
being bonded. Position on the substrate, if possible by sliding
into place and apply pressure overall. If the object is to be applied
to a vertical surface, temporary mechanical support (eg. panel pins,
masonry nails, etc) may be required. Allow to dry overnight prior
to any further operation eg. fixing boards to battens, etc.
b) Wall Panels
For most work, LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) should be applied as
a bead approximately 6mm diameter to the rear of the panel. Extrude
a continuous bead around the panel approximately 25mm from the edge.
Additional beads should then be applied across the panel at 600mm
centres (450mm for heavy panels).
Immediately present the panel to the wall slightly above its required
position and applying pressure slide it into place in order to break
any surface skin. Press firmly to ensure maximum overall contact,
using a soft mallet if necessary. Continue as above with further
panels making sure they are flush with each other. Any adjustment
must be made within 5 minutes of placing.
Alternatively, LAYBOND GRIPFILL(tm) may be applied in the
form of blobs approximately 10-12mm in diameter at 300mm centres,
in rows either 450mm or 600mm across the board (depending upon the
weight as above). The blob application is not recommended when bonding
c) Impervious Materials
Where two impervious materials are to be bonded, apply LAYBOND
GRIPFILL(tm) as above, press firmly together and break the bond
by pulling away immediately ensuring good transfer has occurred.
Wait for approximately 10 minutes and re-bond the two materials.
Keep away from sources of ignition including pilot lights and sparks
(see Note). Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Ensure thorough ventilation.
DO NOT SMOKE.
Note: Electric motors, light/power switches and steel tools
may generate sparks sufficient to ignite the product or its vapour,
resulting in explosion and/or fire.
Skin Contact: Contains solvents which cause de-fatting of the
skin and, in extreme circumstances, dermatitis. Avoid contact by careful
working and use of barrier cream on hands, arms and other exposed
areas, or gloves. Remove contamination with a proprietary cleanser
and wash with soap and water.
Eye Contact: Could be harmful. In the event of accidental contact,
irrigate eyes immediately with clean water for 15 minutes and obtain
Inhalation: Gives off irritating vapours. Use only in a well
ventilated area and use respirators containing cartridges suitable
for use with organic solvents where necessary. In the unlikely event
of discomfort as a result of inhalation, remove the person to fresh
air and obtain medical attention.
Oral Ingestion: With proper handling this should not occur.
The possibility can be minimised by not consuming food in the working
area and by washing hands thoroughly before eating, drinking or smoking.
Spillage: Spilt material should be mopped up immediately with
an inert, absorbent material, such as sand, and disposed of in accordance
Disposal Of Containers: Do not leave empty containers on site
where residue could be a hazard to children, animals or the environment.
Remove any containers to a central disposal point.
Carefully clean with white spirit before film has dried.
Carefully clean with white spirit.
