SabreFix WB Stud Adhesive is a premium non-toxic high grab acrylic stud adhesive that helps reduce the number of screws and nails required to install plasterboard to timber wall studs, ceiling joints, and metal framing. This formula combines high bond strength with excellent flexibility. It is easy to apply, and non-slump, meaning it can be used in vertical, horizontal, and overhead applications.

How to Use

  • Substrate Preparation

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

  • Application - Walls

    Apply in daubs of about 35mm wide by 15 to 25mm high at 300mm centres to intermediate studs. Immediately fix sheet in place. The perimeter must be mechanically fixed.

  • Application - Ceilings

    Work one sheet at a time. Apply in daubs of about 35mm wide by 15 to 25mm high at 200mm centres except for the perimeter and centre line, which must be screwed. Immediately fix sheet in place.

  • Curing

    Ensure full contact between the sheets and SabreFix WB until adhesive sets. The use of temporary direct fix screws through blocks are recommended. SabreFix WB will dry and full is strength is reached in 24 hours to 48 hours.



Do I still need to use nails or screws when installing plasterboard?

SabreFix WB stud adhesive must be used in conjunction with nails or screws. Do not apply adhesive around sheet edges, or under fasteners. Do not fix nails or screws closer than 200mm to adhesive.

How much working time do I have before fixing the sheets?

15-20 minutes. Do not fix more than one sheet at a time to avoid skinning of the adhesive, which may result in adhesion failure.
