High Grip Solvent Free

MT480 is a water-based, gap filling grab adhesive. It offers gap filling and bonding performance, but without the issues surrounding solvent-based adhesives.


For Interior Use

MT480 has been developed to provide an economical water-based alternative to conventional grab adhesives. It is suitable for a wide range of construction applications and bonds to most typical construction materials. 

One of the bonded surfaces must be porous.

  • Water based construction adhesive with high initial grab and ultimate bond strength
  • Contains no organic solvents
  • Gap filling formulation forms a strong bond even with irregular or uneven substrates
  • Bonds most typical construction material - ideal for expanded and extruded polystyrene

Usage Guidelines

  • All surfaces must be clean and free from grease, contamination dust and other loose material.
  • Surfaces may be damp but not running wet.
  • It may be necessary to prime dusty or porous substrates with WD110 diluted 5:1 with water and allow to dry thoroughly before using the adhesive.
  • Abrading the bond surfaces will assist final bond strength.
  • One of the two bonded surfaces must be porous


MT480 is a water-based, solvent free gap filling grab adhesive. It offers gap filling and bonding performance, but without the issues surrounding solvent-based adhesives. It is an ideal choice for the professional user when local regulations do not permit the use of solvent-based systems and it is a sensible adhesive to select for use in confined areas where ventilation is poor and solvent based adhesives could be considered hazardous. Applications include: fixing aluminium and PVCu nosings and extrusions to concrete and wooden stairs; carpet grippers to most sub floors without using tacks or nails; most types of wall cladding, direct wall studding, internal wall surfaces or timber battens; direct fixing of battens, architrave, etc., to walls without other fixings; and fixing floor boarding and skirting boards.

MT480 has excellent adhesion to brick, concrete, blockwork, wood, plywood, chipboard, hardboard, plasterboard, polystyrene, laminated plastics metals and ceramics.
