Overview

SabreFix PS is a premium grade, solvent-based panel construction adhesive, that is fast-drying and builds up strength quickly on contact. SabreFix PS is suitable for use on most common construction materials and is safe for use on polystyrene panels. Ideal for fixing wallboards, polystyrene panels, and acrylic shower linings.

How to Use

  • Substrate Preparation

    Ensure substrates are clean, dry, and free of dust and grease.

  • General Application – Low Stress Loading

    Cut the tip of the nozzle at a 45° angle to give a 5mm bead. Apply a continuous bead of adhesive every 300 – 400mm along the fixing surface. Immediately press the two surfaces together to ensure good surface wetting. Prop if necessary and allow to dry for 2 to 4 hours before removing prop.

  • Polystyrene Application

    Apply as above, but after ensuring good surface wetting, the materials should be separated for up to 5 minutes to allow most of the solvent
    to escape. The surfaces are then pressed back together for final bond.

  • Heavy Materials - High Stress Loading

    Apply a 4mm bead along all mating surfaces (total coverage) and immediately bring the two surfaces together. Nail the surfaces around the perimeter, sufficient to hold the two materials together for a minimum of eight hours.

FAQs

Can SabreFix PS be used for fixing Wallboards?

Yes. It meets AS2329 Mastic Adhesive for fixing wallboards specification.

When bonding, do both surfaces need to be porous?

At least one substrate surface should be permeable material such as wood, cement, or plasterboard. This allows the adhesive to reach full cure by solvent release over several days. If both substrates are impermeable materials such a metal, full bond strength development may be quite slow.

Can I use SabreFix PS if the timber is damp?

Yes, SabreFix PS will bond to damp timber but note that damp timber will shrink, and this will put stress on the bond. It is always best practice to use dry timber.
