What Materials Can Hybrid Adhesives Bond?

Is Hybrid Adhesive the New MVP of Sealants and Adhesives?

One of the best things about hybrid adhesives is that because they stick well to so many surfaces, an adhesive bond is possible between otherwise incompatible substrates that previously would have required mechanical fixings.

Dura+ hybrid adhesive is one of the most advanced and versatile fixing products in the construction industry, combining all the best qualities of silicone sealants and grab adhesives and outperforming both of them.

What can Dura+ Hybrid Adhesive Sealant Stick/Bond?

With a cartridge of Dura+ in their toolkit, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, fitters and decorators can quickly and permanently bond surfaces together, fix stuff in place, fill gaps and make a waterproof seal. All with one product.

As Dura+ is solvent-free, it is also compatible with substrates that would be softened by grab adhesives, which contain solvents.

Providing the contact surfaces are stable and free of dust or grease, Dura+ will bond most surfaces – even when wet – including:

  • Wood – unplaned timber; planed square edge (PSE) timber
  • Metal – stainless steel, aluminium, copper, lead, etc.
  • Plastics – hard PVC, polycarbonates, polyurethane, polystyrene, fibreglass (GRP), ABS and Perspex
  • Porcelain, ceramics and glass – sanitaryware, wall and floor tiles, glazing, shower screens, mirrors, etc.
  • Stone, brick and concrete
  • Cured plaster and mortar
  • Surface coatings – paint, varnish, powder-coating
  • All roofing materials including bitumen paper

What Will Hybrid Adhesive NOT Stick/Bond To?

You might ask, what doesn’t Dura+ stick to? Like all hybrid adhesives, it won’t stick to cured silicone sealant, so this must be removed and the area washed down with isopropyl alcohol (IPA), rubbing spirit or similar alcohol before reapplying Dura+. It also won’t bond with surfaces that have a high wax or oil content – lookout for this particularly in products used to preserve exterior timber such as fencing and garden furniture.
