LIQUID NAILS brand strengthens its Heavy Duty adhesive for extreme conditions

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa., Aug. 20, 2014 – LIQUID NAILS® brand has enhanced its popular Heavy Duty construction adhesive formula. Liquid Nails Extreme Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive performs in extreme conditions, bonding in temperatures from 22F to 120F. This enables professional contractors and avid DIYers to work in the extreme heat or cold and get their jobs done regardless of the weather.

“Pros can’t afford downtime due to extreme heat or cold,” said Mark Hembree, senior brand manager for the Liquid Nails brand. “This formula is made to work all year with the performance and adhesion they expect from the Liquid Nails brand name.”

Liquid Nails Extreme Heavy Duty adhesive is a latex-based construction adhesive designed to provide long-lasting adhesion on a wide range of applications. Extreme Heavy Duty adhesive is certified by UL Environment to the GREENGUARD(CM) Gold standard as a low emitting material, making it ideal for use indoors as well as outdoors. It will help builders qualify their projects for certification under the LEED® green building program, including LEED v.4 certification, of the U.S. Green Building Council.

Additionally, Extreme Heavy Duty adhesive features a plastic tube for outdoor storage. For professionals who often store their materials in their exposed truck, this can save time and worry compared to traditional adhesives. This new product can be found in Lowe’s and The Home Depot locations throughout the United States.

“Extreme Heavy Duty illustrates another way we are listening – and reacting – to our customers’ challenges and needs,” Hembree added.
