A perfect mitre every time:

HB42 launches the Ultimate Bond kit

 

Hilton Banks has launched a new HB42 Ultimate Bond kit, developed to help produce the perfect mitre every time. The kit includes a high viscosity super glue and an activator, designed to rapidly give users a fast and secure bond.

HB42 Ultimate Bond contains a ‘non-yellowing’ activator aerosol and when combined with the adhesive, accelerates the cure speed of the super glue, (also included in the kit) on wood mitre joints and difficult-to-bond surfaces.

The activator in the HB42 Ultimate Bond kit creates an instant bond on many substrates and cures rapidly. It will stick Polyurethane, granite, marble, wood to aluminium, acrylic to granite and rubber to ceramic. The kit can be used on wooden mitre joints, porous, acidic & difficult-to-bond to surfaces including MDF, Acrylic, PVC, Wood, Steel, Leather, Rubber, Ceramics and Aluminium.

The HB42 Ultimate Bond kit is part of the successful high performance HB42 sealants and adhesive range, designed specifically for the trade. Ultimate Bond Activator & Superglue are also available separately.
