Hybrid-technology innovation instantly bonds nearly all materials
CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The LIQUID NAILS® brand, a leader in the construction
adhesive industry, today announced the launch of FUZE*IT® All
Surface Construction Adhesive (LN-2000). Fuze*It adhesive is
formulated with a proprietary hybrid-polymer blend for best-in-class
adhesion. With two times the strength of fasteners alone, it bonds
nearly all materials in any weather conditions, including temperatures
ranging from -40 F to 300 F, and on surfaces that are dry, frozen or wet.
Liquid Nails Fuze*It adhesive features an instant-grab
technology, while still allowing for repositioning, and provides
significantly faster strength development than its competitors. This
allows for faster job completion and less opportunity for parts to move
or shift, creating a better and more reliable bond.
In addition, the product is easy to apply to all surfaces in low
temperatures and is heat resistant. It does not foam in high
temperatures or high humidity, which typically leads to weak spots. And
with its plastic cartridge, packaging will not be damaged when left in
the rain or snow, even overnight.
“With Fuze*It All Surface adhesive, contractors and DIYers
alike can rely on one product to handle nearly every job, no matter what
materials they are using,” said Mark Hembree, senior marketing manager,
adhesives and sealants, PPG Architectural Coatings. “The marketplace is
always looking for more versatile products that are highly effective and
save time. We’re excited to bring this technology to the marketplace.”
“Fuze*It construction adhesive can adhere even metal to metal or
most plastics to most plastics with an instant hold, fast cure and a
long-lasting bond,” said Mark Stypczynski, manager, technical
specifications, adhesives and sealants, PPG Architectural Coatings.
“This will solve common job-site challenges in determining what adhesive
to use with different materials. It’s a go-to choice for contractors and
takes the guesswork out of everyday projects for DIYers.”
Furthermore, the Liquid Nails brand’s Fuze*It All Surface
product is a plasticizer-free formula, so it will not turn brittle like
other products that are made with plasticizers and dry out over time. It
also has a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) formulation and is GREENGUARD
certified to help contractors attain points under current green building
The Liquid Nails Fuze*It adhesive is available exclusively at THE
HOME DEPOT® stores beginning in March 2016.
Liquid Nails is a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings, a business
of PPG Industries, the world’s leading coatings company.
