Are all LIQUID NAILS adhesive products the same?

No, each LIQUID NAILS adhesive product is specifically formulated to bond various substrates and common building materials with different construction requirements. Click the "VIEW PRODUCTS" button to view our assortment of products to find the best option for your next project.

How long does it take LIQUID NAILS adhesive to dry?

If applicable, we recommend bracing the application overnight. LIQUID NAILS adhesive will reach its maximum strength within 7 days. Actual dry time may vary with temperature, humidity, substrates and product technology. Please refer to the individual product label and technical data sheet for specific dry/cure times by product.

How long does LIQUID NAILS adhesive allow me to re-position my project materials?

Working time averages 15 minutes. Please refer to the individual product label and technical data sheet for specific dry/cure times by product.

Who should be contacted for medical emergencies?

Always call 911 first in a serious medical emergency. For Liquid Nails adhesive product-related information in a medical emergency, call the PPG Architectural Coatings Emergency Information Line at 412-434-4515 and press 1, then option 1 on the call menu. The call will be automatically transferred to the PPG Architectural Coatings Emergency Information Line. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Do LIQUID NAILS adhesive products resist water?

LIQUID NAILS adhesive products resist water penetration. However, none of our products should be used below the waterline or immersed in water for long periods of time (e.g., pools, aquariums). Click the "VIEW PRODUCTS" button to view our assortment of products to find the best product for your next project.

How long will the LIQUID NAILS adhesive odor last?

Cross-ventilation is necessary when using LIQUID NAILS products. Some odor may remain for a while, but odor usually lasts less than 24 hours. 

What condition must substrates be in for bonding?

Substrates must be structurally sound, clean and dry (not powdery, chalky or flaky), and without excessive movement for bonding and application.

Do LIQUID NAILS adhesives, caulks, and sealants become hard after they set?

No. LIQUID NAILS construction adhesive and caulk products remain flexible to allow for expansion and contraction of the substrates to ensure long term durability. The flexibility allows the adhesive and caulk to move with the substrates causing less bonding failures.

Is LIQUID NAILS adhesive toxic or flammable after it dries?

No. Once a product has dried, the solvents have dissipated and it becomes inert. It is often the solvents in solvent based products that are flammable or toxic. 

What is the recommended application temperature for LIQUID NAILS adhesive products?

We recommend applying most LIQUID NAILS adhesive products between the temperatures of 40°F and 90°F, but do have products that perform well in extreme temperatures. Click the "VIEW PRODUCTS" button to view our assortment of products to find the best option for your next project.
