A strong PVC adhesive ideal for security, television and general electronic cabling to walls and ceilings.




Features & benefits

Cable has excellent adhesion to a wide variety of materials: Acrylic paint, glass, cement, concrete, plaster, leather, felt, rubber, glass, metal, wood, and some plastics such as PVC and Perspex. It can also be used as a general all purpose adhesive. The non-drip formulation makes it ideal for application onto vertical surfaces. Not suitable for use on some plastics like polyethylene and polypropylene. If bonding a large surface area, ensure that at least one of the two surfaces are porous. May discolour when used outdoors.

  • Apply adhesive to surface and push cable into the glue line.
  • Separate until the adhesive becomes tacky (approx. 60 seconds) and press firmly together.

How do I clean my applicator tools?

Wet and dried adhesive on applicator tools can be cleaned with acetone, thinners or parrafin. Please refer to the Technical Data Sheet of the specific product for more information.

How do I prepare the surfaces to be glued?

Before applying glue, ensure that all surfaces are of sound nature and clean, dry and free from dust, grease or any other contamination.

How do I remove glue from my fingers?

Rinse your fingers immediately with plenty of warm soapy water and do not pull on the skin that has been glued. If glue remains after using warm soapy water, it will often de-bond within a couple of days due to general wear and tear and the natural oils in the skin. If skin irritation occurs, consult a doctor.
