Environmental

All of the adhesives in the DynaGrip product line are VOC compliant in all districts and states in the U.S. with the exception DynaGrip 4000 Subfloor.

Extreme temperatures and humidity may affect any adhesive’s ability to cure. The effect will differ from one product to the next, so for best results, refer to the individual product page or the product label for appropriate temperature ranges.

In general, extreme cold may slow or prevent latex based adhesives from curing and will increase the force required to gun latex and some solvent-based adhesives. High humidity may slow cure time for latex-based adhesives, but will accelerate the cure time of hybrid adhesives such as DynaGrip Heavy Duty MAX.

In general, latex-based adhesives can be removed with warm water and soap while still wet. Cured product must be cut or scraped away.

Solvent, polyurethane & hybrid adhesives require the use of mineral spirits to clean up wet adhesive from surface and tools, taking care to follow solvent manufacturer’s precautions. Do not use mineral spirits to clean skin. Cured product must be cut or scraped away.

Compatibility

In general DynaGrip adhesives are formulated to bond a wide range of building materials. Specific products, like DynaGrip Heavy Duty Max, can bond almost all materials*. For a detailed list of material compatibility for each product, refer to the individual product page or the product label.

*DynaGrip Heavy Duty Max is not recommended for house wrap such as Tyvek® and other fluoropolymer-based substrates such as Teflon®.

Please refer to the individual product page or the product label for a detailed list of materials each product can adhere. In general, latex and solvent-based adhesives are not recommended for non-porous applications such as mirror installation. For non-porous applications, you’ll want to choose one of our hybrid adhesives, like DynaGrip Heavy Duty Max, or DynaGrip Mirror, Marble, Granite.

Glossary

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) means any compound of carbon, excluding carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonic acid, metallic carbides or carbonates and ammonium carbonate, which participates in atmospheric photochemical reactions, except those designated by EPA as having negligible photochemical reactivity. You can also refer to our interactive online guide for more information on VOC regulations.

Open time is the amount of time you have between applying an adhesive and the point at which you should place the two materials you’re attempting to bond together. Waiting longer than the open time provided on the product label will compromise the strength of the cured bond.

Skin time refers to the amount of time after a bead of adhesive is applied before the top layer of the bead hardens or “skins” and can no longer effectively grab a second surface.

Instant grab refers to an adhesive’s ability to instantly hold two surfaces together without falling apart. Don’t mistake instant grab for strength or cure speed—an adhesive that instantly holds two surfaces together does not necessarily have a strong bond once cured, so it’s important to look at the product specifications and Technical Data Bulletin (TDB) to evaluate whether a particular instant-grab adhesive is right for your project.
