Are you looking for a reliable way to adhere porous concrete to other surfaces? If so, concrete glue is the perfect product for the job. This adhesive is specially designed to bond metal, fix crumbling roads, and even garden stones. There are different formulas available for both small repairs and larger projects. At Loctite, we have the right concrete adhesive for any job.
Our Adiglue is a great option for gluing wood to concrete. It's less brittle than super glue, but not as flexible or strong as our Adiseal construction sealant. Adiseal is waterproof, UV resistant, and can fill large gaps. Plus, it can adhere almost any type of material to concrete.
Before applying the adhesive, make sure both surfaces are clean of dust, grease, paint, and any other dirt. When gluing wood to concrete, simply apply the adhesive between the wood and concrete and press firmly. In some cases, you may need to remove old concrete and solve the underlying problem before continuing with new concrete. Glues are generally suitable for gluing small items to smooth surfaces, but not for heavier applications like bonding items to concrete.
An adhesive must first be painted over the existing concrete for the fresh concrete to adhere successfully. Adiseal is the best adhesive to use on concrete as it has proven to be the strongest in an independent test. For safety reasons on extra heavy metal items, mechanical fasteners should also be used between metal and concrete in conjunction with Adiseal when used to join items to vertical applications greater than 26%.When gluing wood to concrete, you may need temporary supports until the adhesive has cured. There are many different types of concrete adhesives on the market that offer effective bonding functions.
However, if the surface contains latitude (a dusty layer of fine aggregates and cement) or is contaminated with spills like grease or oil, bonding adhesive won't work effectively.
