At some point in your life, you’re going to need to stick some stuff together. But if you don’t use the right glue, it’s easy to come unstuck. If you want to keep your sanity (and perhaps, even your relationship) intact, let us help.

Selleys can help to ensure the bond between your DIY home renovations, broken fixtures and woodwork stay strong. Read our guide and we’ll show you how to navigate through these sticky situations. 

Construction adhesives

For DIY pros considering building, construction, landscape and flooring projects, Selleys Liquid Nails is the glue for the job. It is *the* original construction adhesive and can be used both in and outdoors on a range of building materials* – timber, metal, aluminium, concrete, tiles or ceramics – even if the surfaces are rough or uneven.

Help attach plasterboard to studs, bond paving to concrete, stick timber panelling to walls or any other tasks which require gluing and screwing. For specialised surfaces, check out the Liquid Nails range for a suitable product.

*Not suitable for polyethylene or polypropylene such as moulded plastics – eg. garbage bin or fridge drawers.


Whether it’s a simple craft project, building a new timber cabinet or simply repairing or restoring furniture, Selleys Aquadhere has you covered.

Selleys Aquadhere is perfect for school projects and little ‘fix-it’ jobs around the home, especially wobbly timber chairs.

Contact adhesive

Sometimes, the bonds we require need really close contact, like really close. For this, you’ll need Selleys Kwik Grip.

The range is perfect for bonding large, flat surfaces, like laminated plastics to bench or table tops, installing lino, patching vinyl flooring or repairing holes in tents and outdoor equipment.

While it’s suitable for use on a range of materials, it can react to some surfaces, so it’s always a good idea to check with the manufacturer to see if Kwik Grip is right for the job.
