JIT have prepared a guide giving a step-by-step description of how they used Parabond Fast, a high bond polymer adhesive formulated for use with a wide range of construction materials, to create a robust mounting for high pressure laminate wall and ceiling panels.

The process has been tested in the laboratories of the Parabond manufacturer, DL Chemicals, and in a real-life installation by Eurowall in Santiago, Chile.

Using Type 1 Bonded Button-fix with Parabond Fast adhesive allows compact laminate panels as thin as 6mm to be invisibly mounted, with no visible screws or rivet fixings. Ideal for durable and water-resistant interior cladding, everywhere from receptions to washrooms

Parabond adhesives, along with other specialist tapes, adhesives and sealants, are available in the UK from JIT.
