Durabond is moisture curing, high strength, polyurethane construction adhesive. It has high strength and water resistance making it excellent for jobs requiring extra durability, both interior and exterior.Durabond is sandable, paintable and stainable. It is suitable for bonding wood to almost anything. A superior adhesive, it is also excellent for bonding
100% waterproof* – *(not for permanent water immersion)
Bonds wood to almost anything
Acid & chemical Resistant – PVA’s break down with acid/alkaline contact
Versatile can be used to bond surfaces other than wood
Heat resistant up to 140 deg
Generous working time (10 minutes)
Expands as it dries
Sandable – easy, will not clog sandpaper like other PVA emulsion glues
Stainable after sanding
The product is a brown liquid and turns a light yellow when fully cured
Can be used for gap filling
Can Also be used to bond surfaces other than wood I.e metal to metal
Non-Toxic (once fully cured)
Where can this product be used?
Interior and exterior
Sauna or cabinet repairs in high heat areas
Bonding Timber to other surfaces (metal etc)
Cubby House with metal roof & floor lining
Steps leading off a verandah
Timber letterbox to a metal support frame
Decorative timber to a pergola
Interior panels of a boat

Requires atmospheric moisture to cure, therefore use may be restricted in dry conditions (refer to tips for advice)
Cannot be used if application temperature is below 5°C
For best results, one surface should be porous
Not suitable for below waterline applications or continuous submersion, for this we recommend Knead-It Aqua
Not recommended for structural applications
Not recommended for vertical projects due to runny consistency
While Aquadhere Durabond can adhere to damp surfaces excess moisture can result in increased foaming and a weakened joint. Ensure tight clamping or weighting to reduce foaming
Surfaces should be clamped tightly or weighted
What materials is this product suitable for?
Most plastics (will not adhere to polyethylene or polypropylene, test other plastics first).
How to use this product
Surfaces to be bonded must be close fitting, clean, dust and grease free.
Wipe very dry porous surfaces with a damp cloth 1 minute before bonding.
Apply a thin layer of adhesive evenly to one surface only. Glue expands and foams as it cures.
Assemble parts together within 10 minutes and clamp firmly or weight to hold until cured.
Wipe nozzle clean and seal container tightly. (to prevent remaining product from hardening in the container).
Wipe away any excess adhesive immediately with acetone. After drying, any excess adhesive can only be removed by scraping, sanding, filing or cutting.
Clean tools with acetone or white turpetine immediatly after use (before adhesive dries).
1L covers approx. 8m2
It is advisable to wear gloves (adhesive bonds to skin and is extremely difficult to remove from skin).
For bonding with smooth surface materials such as glass, plastics or metals, we suggested sanding or roughening the surface.
The tighter you clamp, the better bond you will obtain (as Durabond expands).
Wipe nozzle clean and seal container tightly. (to prevent remaining product from hardening in the container.)
Wipe oily timber surfaces with acetone on a clean rag to remove any surface oils & allow to dry before applying adhesive.
In extremely dry conditions or for extremely dry surfaces (eg terracotta) wipe surfaces with a damp rag prior to bonding to ensure sufficent moisture is present to cure product. Surfaces should not be wet.
It is recommended to use the entire contents of a pack within 6 months of opening. Product may form a hard skin on the surface during this period. Usable material is normally still present beneath this skin and can be accessed by breaking the hardened layer.
For cleaning surfaces prior to application of adhesive, if the surface is porous, we would recommend using SELLEYS Liquid Sugar Soap. If the surface is non-porous eg glass or metal, firstly clean the surface with mineral turpentine and then again with methylated spirits. If there is old, difficult to remove residue such as old paint, we recommend using paint stripper such as SELLEYS Kwik Strip Smart. Ensure the surface is dry before applying the product.
If glue comes in contact with hands, use acetone or white spirits to remove immediately and then rinse off with soapy water followed by hand creme. Alternatively wipe hands regularly while using Aquadhere Durabond. Once cured, adhesive is extremely difficult to remove from skin.
If cured material is discovered on the skin, then rub vegetable oil or Vitamin E cream into the area repeatedly to accelerate the natural process of the skin shedding, which will in turn cause the cured product to fall off.
Contains organic isocyanate polymers.
On contact, uncured adhesive can irritate eyes. If in eyes, flood the eyes for at least 15 minutes and seek medical advice.
Avoid contact with skin, if contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing or flush skin and hair with running water.
Avoid breathing vapours. Ensure use in a well-ventilated area. Product releases methyl ethyl ketoxime while curing.
For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (AUS 131 126; NZ 0800 764 766) or a doctor.

Storage and re-use
Clean tools with acetone or white spirit immediately after use (before adhesive dried).
Storage – For maximum shelf life store inside at moderate temperatures in dry conditions. Keep tightly closed to prevent moisture and air contact.
