When it comes to using construction adhesives on the jobsite, pros know all products are not created equal. That’s why DAP®, a leader in the home improvement and construction products industry, created a new, complete line of construction adhesives with the latest innovative technologies, including high performance latex, solvent, and new cutting-edge hybrid formulas. New DynaGrip formulas deliver high-strength bonds in hours, not days, and provide exceptional performance even in the most extreme weather conditions.

In addition to stronger and more durable bonds, DAP’s new line of DynaGrip adhesives are easier to gun for greater efficiency and include several formulas which are low odor and compliant with stringent VOC regulations.
