When you’re completing building work, it’s vital that you have the right materials. From adhesives to fixing and brickwork to hardware, having the best materials will allow you to complete every project to the highest possible standard.
Adhesives are bonding agents used to join materials by gluing, and are needed for projects like laying carpet, countertop lamination, drywall lamination and underlaying flooring. Different adhesives have specific purposes. Take, for example, PVA is a general purpose wood adhesive, while epoxy resin is used for plastic and metal.
Fixings (or fasteners) are a form of connector and play an indispensable role in construction. In essence, they hold things together or to attach them to the surfaces such as floors, roofs or walls. Typical fasteners include nails, screws, nuts, bolts, rivets and plasterboard fixings.
Building hardware are a set of elements or fittings which help the building to function efficiently. They are mainly used to bind or connect building elements together, but they also have a decorative element in the interiors of the building, as well as protective in things like window latches and locks.
