Drygrip Adhesive

A salt and damp resistant adhesive intended to be used in conjunction with Dryshield Cream as part of the Dryzone System for bonding plasterboard to masonry following Dryzone rising damp treatment.

Drygrip Adhesive creates a very strong and long-lasting bond which has excellent resistance to moisture and the effects of salt on masonry. When applied in thick dabs Drygrip Adhesive also allows an air gap to be created between boards and the wall, creating a warmer final surface that is protected from residual dampness and salts in the wall.

To be applied by a suitably qualified contractor.


  • Strong, long-lasting bond.
  • Excellent grab and fast curing.
  • Suitable for use on damp and salt-contaminated surfaces.
  • Accommodates natural movement of the wall.
  • Low odour, solvent-free formulation.
  • Excellent for use on walls primed with Dryshield Cream.
  • Can also be used as a general purpose adhesive for plaster, plasterboard, concrete, masonry and wood as well as metal, plastic, glass and painted surfaces.
