What is Gorilla Glue & what are its uses?

What is Gorilla Glue and what are its uses? Well, Gorilla have been creating premium tapes, glues and gels for years, and they are possibly the strongest you will ever buy.

Gorilla’s range of products work the first time when others may fail, and are perfect for building and repairing projects.

Tradefix Direct stocks a range of Gorilla products, including three types of Gorilla Glue, as well as the popular Gorilla Tape and Gorilla Gel. Here are the products and their best uses:

Gorilla Glue

Versatile, 100% waterproof, temperature resistant and with an invisible glue line that makes finishing easy, the answer to ‘what is Gorilla Glue?’ is it’s a product that helps you get the job done right, the first time.

Gorilla Glue bonds various materials such as metal, stone, wood, ceramics, foam, glass and many others – a list which many other glues can’t boast. Gorilla Glue is perfect for most household projects, fixes and building repairs. So whether you’re fixing a broke chair leg or are getting creative, this product is the perfect option as it is sandable, paintable and also stainable.

Gorilla Wood Glue

Gorilla Wood Glue is a fast and strong wood-to-wood glue that is long lasting. Using a special formula, this glue was created for use with a range of woods, is water-resistant and has no dyes which means a better looking bond line.

Gorilla Wood Glue is the market leader when it comes to strength and requires only 20-30 minutes to clamp. After 24 hours, Gorilla Wood Glue is fully cured.

Perfect for use indoors or outdoors, Gorilla Wood Glue is extremely water resistant, and only natural wood fibres are used to avoid the orange after-glow that can occur from using some yellow glues.

Solvent free, non-toxic and FDA approved for indirect food contact, Gorilla Wood Glue is easy to clean up with water and extremely easy to use.

Gorilla Super Glue

The new Gorilla Super Glue includes an Impact-Tough Formula which makes this glue the first on the market that keeps holding strong even when the bond takes a hit.

Gorilla Super Glue uses unique rubber particles to increase impact-resistance and strength which makes it perfect for everyday use. And with an anti-clog tip, you can use it until the bottle is empty.

This super glue dries in under a minute and requires no clamping, and you can use it with almost any material which means Gorilla Super Glue is the only glue you need in your toolbox. From wood to metal, ceramics, a range of plastics and rubber, why use any other glue?

Gorilla Super Glue Gel

Gorilla Super Glue Gel is easy to use and works a treat on multiple surfaces and even vertical applications thanks to its thick formula.

Much like with the Gorilla Super Glue, the gel doesn’t run, wont clog, absorbs impacts and can be used with any surface from plastic to wood, metal to ceramic and even leather and paper.

Gorilla Tape

One of the most popular products in the range, Gorilla Tape is others a smooth, even and predictable final treatment when working with rough, uneven and unforgiving surfaces such as wood, stucco, plaster, brick and even stone.

A double thick adhesive with string reinforcing backing, Gorilla Tape was listed as the ‘Best of What’s New’ product by Popular Science. Why? Because Gorilla Tape has a tough all-weather shell for the toughest jobs in the toughest conditions, works with nearly all surfaces and despite its strength can still be easily torn into the sizes you need.

Gorilla Tape is available in sizes from 25 yards to the handy 1 inch roll.
