Adhesives come in many forms but all achieve the same thing: to stick things together. Superglue is probably the most well-known adhesive and is always handy to keep in the house because it has so many practical uses. It's a very convenient way to bond two surfaces without mixing or heating, and can be purchased with or without an activator pen for easier application. Other universal adhesives include the high strength MultiFiX which also requires no mixing and works on almost any surface including wood, glass, plastic, metal and composite. You can also buy more specialist products for specific purposes such as those for sealing joints on glueless flooring, or high adhesion tapes which are quick and easy to apply and can be used with standard laminate and ABS edging for a permanent bond. Whichever adhesive you choose, if it's going to be used outdoors, remember to check for weather resistance.
We also stock sealers, oils and mousses. Sealers are designed to protect your worktop and other household surfaces against water, oil and stains. Generally they give a transparent coating and can be applied to granite, marble and natural stone surfaces, though as always, do check the label. If you have a solid wood worktop, these need to be re-oiled from time to time to maintain their appearance and level of protection. Oils and oil mousses can do this job fairly quickly and they can also be used for higher use areas of the worktop that might receive a greater amount of wear and tear.
When it comes to cleaning and polishing, Unika are one of the most popular brands, providing a wide range of products suitable for surfaces as diverse as granite, quartz, glass, mirrors, chrome, laminate, acrylic, PVC, and more. They offer individual cleaners and full kits containing a ready to use cleaner and microfibre cloth. Not all cleaners are suitable for all surfaces, so check which ones are appropriate for your use. Specially formulated polishes are also available for solid surfaces and composite worktops to provide a long lasting shine.
