Choosing the Best Adhesive, Sealant or Tape
The right adhesive, sealant or tape will depend on the nature of your project, the type of material you are working with and the strength of the bond required. Other factors worth considering include the type of environment you will be working in — temperature and humidity can affect performance and setting time — the size of the gap you need to fill and the amount of flexibility and rigidity required.
Beyond that, you want a product that is cost-effective, easy to work with and safe to use, particularly if the job will involve extended exposure. Since no two projects are the same, we strive to offer a large selection of options from manufacturers we know and trust. Keep reading for more information.
At Construction Fasteners and Tools, we work with a range of different manufacturers to offer high-quality adhesives and related products you can trust in demanding industrial applications. Our inventory includes:
- Adhesives: Adhesives include glues, contact cements, epoxies and other products designed to bond two materials together. We sell heavy-duty construction adhesives as well as general purpose products such as Gorilla Super Glue and Titebond yellow carpenter’s glue. Gorilla Glue is an excellent choice for household projects thanks to its fast set time and strong bonding. Titebond carpenter's glue is the industry standard for woodworking projects and is non-toxic, solvent-resistant and suitable for use with all porous materials, including wood, particleboard, leather and cloth.
- Sealants: Sealants are similar to adhesives but are typically thicker and stronger, offering insulating properties or filling in gaps between work pieces. Construction and plumbing applications, among other industrial projects, require heavy-duty sealants. Common sealers include silicone, wood and drywall fillers. We carry Loctite Threadlocker, a permanent, military spec solution for fixing in place fasteners up to ¾” diameter. For fireproof applications, choose Nuco Fire Barrier sealants. For construction work, consider a high-performance polyurethane product like NuFlex® 650, an all-weather sealant suitable for concrete, masonry, aluminum, wood and other common building materials.
- Tapes: Tape can range from masking tape to professional-grade products with highly specific applications. In our online store, you will find options including 3M double-sided tape, 3M foam tape, 3M foil tape, 3M filament tape and products by G-Tape. We are also an excellent place to buy affordable duct tape in bulk. Popular items include 3M painter’s tape, which removes cleanly while offering superior resistance to curling, and 3M Temflex PVC tape, a cost-effective option for indoor jobs.
