BALTIMORE, May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's tough adhesive repair projects require tactical solutions and a product that blends both strength and precision. The leader in home improvement and construction projects, DAP, now offers Tank Bond((TM)), a complete line of hard-working adhesives ideal for an extensive list of professional and DIY applications.

Combined these adhesive products are strong enough to tackle repairs ranging from tools, home products and outdoor maintenance to boats, bicycles, automotive, motorcycles and even musical instruments.

"Our heavy-duty line of Tank Bond adhesives are designed to make durable and reliable repairs on all types of equipment big or small," said Kate Piche, Product Director at DAP. "Whether it's preventing stripped screws and bonding fasteners to holding screws and bolts in place and bonding metal, this 'tough-as-a-tank' military-grade adhesive technology provides tactical solutions for even the most demanding jobs."

    --  Tank Bond Thread Stopper Provides an Adjustable, Reusable SolutionTurn
        any size and type of screw or bolt into a self-stopping, shock-absorbing
        fastener by applying Tank Bond Thread Stopper. Simply apply to the
        fastener, let dry and then install. The non-locking formula creates a
        strong hold without permanently bonding threads, allowing fasteners to
        be easily removed and replaced with manual tools up to five times. The
        product coats the threaded bolt or screw with a gel-like coating to help
        absorb shock and vibration. Thread Stopper is a multi-material solution
        that can be used on metal, wood, plastic and more, and won't damage or
        crack plastic like a traditional threadlocker. As a non-permanent
        solution, Thread Stopper is ideal for any type of routine maintenance
        repair or for a tight hold on components that may need to be accessed or
        replaced in the future on everything from guitars and drawer pulls to
        bicycles and motorcycles.


    --  Tank Bond Liquid Grip Prevents Stripped Screws for Easier Installation
        or Removal Some screws just do not want to install or be removed. When
        your bit first slips, it's common to respond by adding more force - but
        this only increases the potential for the screw to strip. Adding just a
        drop of Liquid Grip to the screw head provides up to seven times more
        grip, giving it the extra bit of surface traction needed to easily
        install or remove, while preventing unnecessary wear and tear on your
        tools. The Liquid Grip formula works on all fastener types and sizes,
        and cleans up easily from tools and fasteners when work is done - simply
        wipe with a paper towel. The product is ideal for heavily used screws on
        items such as door hardware, kitchen drawers, recreational equipment and
        even power tools.


    --  Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy Handles All Your Toughest Repairs An
        aggressive adhesive, DAP Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy delivers
        military-grade adhesive technology, offering superior bond strength and
        impact resistance. Formulated to be four times tougher than typical
        epoxies, it's the ideal solution for repairing items that undergo heavy
        force or vibrations, such as lawn mowers, bikes, exercise equipment and
        power tools - and can even be used on minor automotive repairs such as
        fixing cracked bumpers. While substrates bonded with brittle epoxies
        often fail under these conditions, Tank Bond retains its hold even when
        substrates are bent or warped by force. Beyond its strength, Tank Bond
        offers an easy-to-use application that requires zero surface preparation
        and cures in as fast as 30 minutes on most substrates, enabling users to
        tackle tough repairs quickly - and then move onto the next. Tank Bond
        works on metal, plastic, tile, ceramic, glass, stone and wood - and is
        particularly suited for metal bonding.


    --  Tank Bond Clear Epoxy Provides Fast and Clean-Looking Repairs Demanding
        repairs don't need to be accompanied by unsightly results when you have
        the right product on hand. Formulated to deliver a stronger-than-super
        glue bond, DAP Tank Bond Clear Epoxy delivers a high-strength, durable
        repair that dries clear for a clean-looking repair that will blend
        smoothly with the original substrate. The multi-material adhesive
        provides a strong, clear bond on metal, plastic, tile, ceramic, glass,
        stone and wood for a super-versatile repair solution. Tank Bond Clear
        Epoxy also offers gap filling capabilities and forms a water-resistant
        bond perfect for both interior and exterior repairs. Plus, the
        fast-setting formula reaches handling strength in as fast as five
        minutes so you can be sure the repair has set up right and will cure
        properly.

    --  Tank Bond Gel Threadlockers Available in Removable or Permanent Formulas
        Repeated vibrations and frequent usage can cause even tightly secured
        screws to come loose over time. DAP Tank Bond Gel Threadlockers offer
        the strength needed to withstand constant force and avoid the mess of
        typical drippy threadlockers thanks to a gel-like formula that won't
        drip or run, and is idea for vertical applications. Available in two
        formulas, Removable and Permanent, these easy-to-use thread coating
        ensures screws stay securely in place with reinforced strength. The
        product will fix rapidly in 10 minutes, and is fully cured within 24
        hours for a strong, secure bond. Any excess adhesive is easily wiped
        away with a paper towel. Permanent Threadlocker is ideal for fasteners
        up to 1" in diameter, while Removable Threadlocker is suited for
        fasteners ¼" to ¾" in diameter for metal-on-metal application.
