You’re getting ready to start your project adding Efex bendable moldings to your furniture/walls/planters/door frames, and just one question pops into your head: “Which glue will give me the best results?”

Here’s a simple guide to picking the right glue for your next project.

DAP Weldwood Contact Cement

  • Brushes on with included brush
  • Apply to the back of the Efex, and to the surface you’re attaching to
  • Needs to dry to the touch before pressing the Efex to the surface (approx. 15-20 mins.)
  • Better if you’re going to be repainting your entire project
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor projects
  • Efex can be removed with a little effort
  • Cleanup excess glue with odorless mineral spirits

DAP Rapid Fuse

  • Has a small applicator tip making it more precise
  • Best to wear gloves when working with this glue to avoid getting it on your skin (it’s a pain to get off!)
  • Apply in a small bead just inside the exterior edges of your Efex
  • Press firmly onto the surface and hold for approximately 30 seconds for a bond
  • Can reapply if you missed a spot
  • Better for applying a few Efex, especially if you don’t plan on painting/staining the project
  • Great for creating a two-toned effect (two colors of paint, or two variations of stain)
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor projects

We hope that helps explain the differences between the two glues. You can also get suggestions from your local retailer, or call or email us!
