Selleys Liquid Nails is great stuff, but you might not have known about Liquid
Its special formula is fast-grab, so you can use less nails. It’s also
water-based so it’s easy to clean up and it has very little odour, so it’s ideal
for use indoors on jobs like skirtings, panelling, and architraves.
Liquid Nails Fast is one of the few types of glue that can be used on
polystyrene foam (commonly used for insulating metal screen rooms). It can, of
course, also be used outdoors.
An ideal job for it is ply panelling:
First, cut your panelling neatly with a utility knife. Get it right because
there’s no second chances with fast glue! Then apply the glue to the plywood
liberally in vertical beads about 40cm apart. Don’t skimp on the glue, or your
panelling might rattle when doors are slammed. Then simply press the panel
against the wall.
For best adhesion, pull the panel back off the wall for a few moments, then push
it back on. Sometimes you may need to use a few nails to hold the panel in
position until the glue sets, then the nails can be removed again. Clean up any
glue that squeezes out with a damp cloth.
Very easy! And there’s no hunting around in the wall looking for timber to drive
