PPG’s Liquid Nails brand has launched a new all-surface construction adhesive, Fuze*It, billed to ease challenges associated with using different adhesives with different materials on the job site.

According to Mark Stypczynski, manager of technical specifications, architectural coatings, adhesives and sealants for parent company PPG, the product “can adhere even metal to metal or most plastics to most plastics with an instant hold, fast cure and a long-lasting bond.”

The adhesive can be used to bind a variety of surfaces, according to PPG.

The adhesive is formulated with a proprietary hybrid-polymer blend that is plasticizer-free, intended to prevent it drying and brittleness over time, PPG states in a press release.

In addition, the release states that the adhesive is a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) formulation and is GREENGUARD certified, which could help contractors attain points under current green building programs.

Fuze*It is available exclusively through The Home Depot.

Liquid Nails is a brand of PPG’s architectural coatings business. The product line includes a broad range of adhesives, caulks, sealants and home-repair products with project-specific formulas. Headquartered in Pittsburgh, PPG operates in more than 70 countries around the world.
