There are other Polyurethane Glues in the marketplace, but PURBOND has the following advantages over them:

  • PURBOND has a chemical additive which allows it to glue exotic materials that the others will not touch. -  That is why it is always important to wipe the surfaces being glued with a cloth dampened with water. -  Try gluing some aluminium or stainless steel together in a lap joint without wiping a damp cloth over the surface. The joint will easily pull apart.
  • PURBOND comes with a detailed Tips Sheet when purchased from us based on our practical experience.  Also, we are only a phone call away for product support.
  • PURBOND comes in sizes from 125ml to 200 litres. Therefore you only buy what you need and do not end up wasting product because it is too old and goes off. 
    • Known Manufacture Date marked on each container. -  Polyurethane glues have a shelf life as plastic is not waterproof and over 18 months to 2 years moisture will permeate through the container and the glue will then quickly go off.  Other brands do not have a manufacture date marked on each container.   We always have fresh PURBOND available.


Expanda-van-homes use purbond polyurethane adhesive toglue the specially manufactured wall and roof panels together.  The techniques used are patented and PURBOND was selected after two years of testing as it proved superior in adhering the panels as:

  • It will not melt foam
  • Superior adhesion on aluminium and mild steel sheeting to foam.
  • It will not creep.  Therefore ensuring the panels will not delaminate during transportation to site.
