"The brand you know, Solvent free had to replace some upvc make-up's in a bedroom that was being used excellent bonding properties appllied gripfill only had to hold each piece in place less than a minute."
"I used ribbons and dabs to stick insulated plasterboard to an existing wall and to put a fillet along the bottom. It worked a treat for sealing the bottom of the mdf skirting board also. Just keep it off your fingers or wash them quickly!"
"Being a Professional Tradesman i'm always on the look out for good quality glues and fixings at good value for money .
This product is very similar to the original Green Tube Gripfill , the only main differences is that , it's solvent free , it's white in colour and I found it is more user friendly meaning you have time to postion your work piece . With the other one if you not quick enough to stick the work piece you tend to get a skin on the glue and it affects griping performance.
This solvent free alternative gets a really good hold for most things . I'd recommend this product for Skiritngs & Mouldings, Panelling, Kitchens, Window Boards etc."
"there are times when a good grab is all that counts and grim fill provides just that, I normally use non solvent adhesive, but there are times noting but solvent works, this is a good price and good grip it does what is says."
"gripfill yellow is great for first fix on skirtings and architrave although its always good to add a few nails or screws to hold it while it sets, its not great as a filler because it shrinks back too much and can pull the paint off the wall as it shrinks back, the way to get over this is to stick what need to be stuck with it and then make good with decoraters caulk for the perfect finish. clean off the excess with a damp sponge or cloth straight after fixing, its better than the green gripfill in my opinion as it doesnt set as soon as it exsits the tube, also better for the environment."
"I have always used the original Gripfill so thought I'd give the solvent free version a go. Very happy. Its not as hard as the solent version but does grip extremely well and is easier to handle being easier to clean up with water. I will b e using much more of this in future."
"Adhesives work best on large surface areas. I Used this to stick expanded polystyrene sheets direct to brick and then to stick plasterboards direct to the eps. and wooden battens. It is simply brilliant after 24hrs."
"Merlin would have loved this stuff, it would have fixed King Arthurs Court easier than he could, without a magic wand! And because its solvent free it does not cause any environmental problems...........apart from the pile of empty tubes outside my backdoor, really must get those shifted (wonder if they have a reuse?).
OK it does have some limitations, but that's what its green tubed brother is for! What did we do before they invented this stuff..............of course nails and a big 'ammer, not nearly so easy to clean up after!"
"I use both the green and this yellow Gripfill for all manner of applications. Yellow Gripfill is useful for woodworking when used as a tougher alternative to wood glue, also has the benefit of acting as a filler also (for small discrepancies). This can be wiped clean of surrounding woodwork with a damp cloth unlike the green stuff which can mess up your day. The yellow one also smells great!"
"I used this used fit my ceiling centers, it was excellent, I thought I would need two tubes, but I fitted four centres and used less than half a tube.Gripped well and stuck true, very good, but didn't seem too good on filling large holes, like when I repaired the rot on my wooden windows, it took time to dry and was hard to work into a good finish."
"Have used loads of different glues and fillers and this is one of the best,I use to stick and fill and overpaintable. As water soluble you don't get the awlful smell that you got with the original Gripfil"
"Bought this following the good reviews and wanted the solvent-free version as it was for sticking in metal socket backs into holes in the walls in my son's bedroom.
My drilling wasn't spot on (!) so I used the filler part of this as well as the grip. After 5.5 days of being on, I plugged the first applicance in and the whole socket back came out of the wall when it was removed! Some of it was still wet! It says it bonds to metal but it didn't in my case.
Maybe I used too much - maybe I filled a hole too big for it - I don't know as it doesn't give you any gudance on the tube or on the screwfix site re using lots - it just gives you a minimum amount.
