Elmer's® Introduces First Heavy-Duty Acrylic Adhesive That Won't Foam Up

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elmer's ® Products, Inc., an industry leader in office, educational, craft and hardware adhesives and bonding materials, is pleased to introduce Elmer's ® ProBond Advanced™—the only multi-purpose adhesive on the market that delivers professional strength and versatility without the foamy mess that polyurethane glues leave behind.

ProBond Advanced works on nearly any substrate – wood, concrete, metal, glass, ceramics and more. It is 100 percent weatherproof, making it ideal for both interior and exterior projects. Unlike popular polyurethane glues, ProBond Advanced won't foam up after it's dry, thanks to its acrylic formulation. This saves DIYers, contractors and woodworkers the time and hassle of cleaning up their projects and hands after working.

"We developed ProBond Advanced in response to demand from consumers," said Emily von Stein, associate product manager for Elmer's hardware category. "They've told us that they don't like the messy foam of polyurethane glues, but still need an adhesive that can provide heavy-duty adhesion on nearly any surface. ProBond Advanced satisfies that need and goes a step beyond by not only eliminating the annoying foam mess, but also being easy enough to clean with just water."

ProBond Advanced is nontoxic and washable when wet. It dries translucent, won't stain hands and has a longer shelf life than the standard polyurethane adhesive. With a 100 percent performance guarantee, consumers can get a refund of the purchase price if they are not satisfied with its results.

Tests against the leading polyurethane glue show that ProBond Advanced offers greater lap shear strength—the strength demonstrated by the diagonal pull of two substrates until adhesive failure—on a variety of applications, including steel to wood, stainless steel to wood, aluminum to wood, acrylic to acrylic, acrylic to wood, ABS to ABS and ABS to wood. Strength tests are based on laboratory testing done October 4, 2011, on the eight most common dual-surface applications. Elmer's ® Carpenter's ® Wood Glue MAX ® is still the recommended adhesive for wood-to-wood applications.

ProBond Advanced is now available at The Home Depot, Dollar General, Ace Hardware, Do it Best, True Value, Orgill, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores and select independent hardware retailers.

Elmer's ProBond Advanced is available in two-, four- and eight-ounce bottles for $4.99, $6.50 and $10.99, respectively.
