Weldbond : Painting, Decorating & Tile Work
Weldbond works wonders with paint, wallpaper, and tiling. It repairs leather upholstery, fabrics, carpets and more!
About paint: Weldbond can be used as a permanent priming coat under paint. It stops paint from leaching or peeling. Hair cracks can be sealed completely by coating with 1 part Weldbond, 1 part water.
About tiles: Decorate walls and floors with tiles in a snap— Weldbond offers the cleanest, easiest method to adhere any kind of tile to any kind of surface. Tiles can be laid on flat or uneven surfaces. Try creating a table-top mosaic— Weldbond offers a stronger bond than anything you'll get with a regular contact cement. Seal porous backs and edges of all broken mosaic tiles. Use an adhesive mix to make a mosaic of tremendous strength.
To treat water marks on ceilings (instructions for plaster, drywall, or fibre boards): Coat stained areas with full-strength Weldbond and let dry completely. Paint over entire area— stains will never bleed through!
About wallpaper: Protect wallpaper from grease and dirt. For an easy brushing consistency, thin 2 parts Weldbond with 1 part water and apply to wallpaper surface. (Test for colour fastness in a bottom corner first.) Apply two coats if extra protection is required. No need to worry about finger marks on your beautiful new paper. Wallpaper treated in this way can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
Outdoor paint: Make long-lasting, attractive paint that's economical, too. This mixture is great for outbuildings, garages, outside walls, and basements. Mix 1 part Weldbond to 5 parts water. Add to coloured cement til a paint-like consistency is achieved. Apply as you would normal paint. Fill surface cracks and irregularities with the heavy mix from the bottom of the pail.
Ceramic tile repair: Mix tile grout to 1 part Weldbond, 1 part water. It makes an excellent paste perfect for regrouting or reinstalling soap dishes in shower stalls.
Use this thick adhesive paste anywhere you desire a white grout line.
Tiling over painted walls or glazed tiles: Instructions for flat-backed tiles only. Clean surface thoroughly; rinse and let dry. Prime tiles with solution of 1 part Weldbond, 5 parts water and let dry. Apply concentrated Weldbond to walls to be tiled; let dry. Apply concentrated Weldbond in five spots on back of tile (four corners and centre). Place tiles in position.
Wall and floor finishing: With Weldbond, there's no limit to your creativity. Decorate walls with PVC and vinyl fabrics. Linen-backed PVC and vinyl-backed fabrics may be hung using concentrated Weldbond on dry surfaces. Brush or roll the fabric from the centre outward. Puncture air bubbles and remove surplus adhesive with a clean, damp cloth.
Carpet repairs: Check frayed carpets quickly. Apply concentrated Weldbond to the carpet's edge or by bonding tape with Weldbond.
Leather and fabrics: Weldbond works wonders in your home, cottage, automobile- just about anywhere! It will bond most types of fabrics to themselves and to other materials. Weldbond will bond leather as long as it's free from dirt or oil. Use it to repair carpets, sacks, canvas, mats, trimmings and fittings. To use, just apply concentrated Weldbond to both surfaces. Allow to become tacky before bringing surfaces together.
Bitumen surfaces: Weldbond prevents bitumen bleeding through any overcoating, especially with paints containing active solvents. Simply apply a coat of 1 part Weldbond with 1 part water over bitumen, allow to dry, then paint or parge.
Check efflorescence above grade: Dry and brush off surface. Spray or brush on 1 part Weldbond to 5 parts water.
