Fast Grap Adhesive is a solvent free trowel applied adhesive ideal for the adhesion of Satin PVC or Panelite to any solid surface.
Use on: Any solid surface Use where: Internal Typical industries: Food production areas, breweries, dairies, kitchens, hospitals, laboratories, chillers and restaurants Type of job: Long lasting adhesion for installation of wall and ceiling cladding
Approximate coverage: 21L (12 x 8' x 4' panels) 30 - 35m2 Cure time: 20 mins @ 20oC Special features: Superb grab and good working time, resistant to freeze/thaw cycles in cold stores, fridges etc., tools easily cleaned with water, solvent free, non offensive odour
Surface must be dry and free of any material that may deter adhesion, including severe and thick amounts of drywall joint compound.
Patch holes and depressions and remove any bumps or high spots. Concrete surfaces must be well cured and completely dry.
Cut and pre-fit all materials before applying adhesive. Lay wall cladding panels flat and let them acclimate to room temperature 24 hours before installing.
Application temperature 10oC – 35oC. Do not use when temperature, adhesive or materials are below 10oC.
Spread adhesive over entire back of panel using a v-notch trowel with notches 5mm wide x 6mm deep and spaced 12mm centre to centre. Keep trowel notches clean and free of adhesive build-up to insure proper application.
Immediately place panel against surface. Press firmly over entire surface working from the centre to the outer edges, so that the entire panel is in full contact with backing. Using a roller over the entire wall panel is also recommended.
When installing wall panels over below grade concrete or block walls where moisture can penetrate from the back, attach furring strips with mechanical fasteners and heavy duty construction adhesive and then adhere a solid backing to the furring strips.
Note: Bracing may be required if walls are not straight. Panels used in conjunction with channel mouldings should NOT fit tightly into the mouldings. Leave a small area in the moulding for expansion and follow panel manufacturer’s recommendations. Any holes drilled through the wall panels for fasteners, pipes or conduits should be oversized.
DO NOT use over metal, plastic, foam board, sealed concrete, certain types of specially treated or moisture resistant gypsum wallboard or other non-porous surfaces. Contact the Polycote Technical Helpline for installations over non-porous substrates and treated plywoods.
