DAP traces its roots back to 1865, when Robert H. Dicks and Elmer Wiggim began producing sealing wax for food-canning out of Dicks' garage in Dayton, Ohio. In those days before refrigeration and commercially prepared foods, canning was a widespread practice, and demand for their product was high. DAP® SMARTBOND® Construction Adhesives are a dynamic polyurethane adhesive foaming gel that is faster and easier to use than traditional cartridge adhesives. Jobs become more efficient as a single can of SMARTBOND® Adhesive provides 8 times the coverage of standard cartridge adhesives, meaning you can do more with less. They apply as a foam and transform by collapsing into a high-strength, fast-curing adhesive gel that develops an incredibly strong, durable and permanent bond to most building materials. DAP® SMARTBOND® is also much faster and easier to use on the jobsite.
