Remember that old Krazy Glue commercial where they glue a contruction worker’s hard hat to a beam and leave him dangling in midair? The first time a saw Loctite’s Power Grab® , I though of that ad – it’s almost that strong. While it isn’t actually glue (it comes on a roll like tape) and can’t quite keep a 200 lb. helmeted man suspended above a construction site, Loctite® Power Grab® is incredibly strong – each 60-inch roll has the power to hold up to 100 lbs of pretty much anything you can dream up.
Power Grab® is waterproof, resistant to UV rays, and works well within a wide range of temperatures (from -40°F to 248°F), so it’s not limited to indoor use. You can use it inside to hang pictures, coat hangers, and other decorative objects to your walls, and then bring it outdoors to adhere street numbers or address plaques to your home or business, or even mount a door-knocker on your front door. But don’t limit yourself – those are just a few basic ideas.
Not too long ago, a few of my coworkers filmed a demonstration video for Power Grab®, and just to show how strong it really is, they used it to mount a tool box to a wall. But it didn’t end there. Immediately after sticking the tool box to the wall, our spokesmodel proceeded to drop (not gently place, but drop) a variety of heavy tools into the box, and that tool box stayed exactly where it was supposed to. And keep in mind that our demonstration team had been forced, in the interest of time, to forgo the recommended curing period that allows the adhesive to fully set and activate. Now that’s a high-performance tape.
