We stock a large range of adhesives and glues, which cater for the building industry, renovation and handyman markets as well as for the home DIY person.

Not all adhesives are for gluing basic materials like wood. Adhesive technology and there systems of application has evolved over the years, which allows us to do a lot more with them.

Today, adhesives play a vital role in the building and renovation industry and it is crucial that the correct type and brand of adhesive is used in the correct way.

We stock a large variety of abrasives which cater for a wide market like the building industry and DIY market.
Abrasives are used to finish or shape a work piece, and for that reason they are not all the same.

If we do not have it, we will try our best to get it for you.

How times have changed in the building industry. Today dry powders and cements are just so much more versatile then they where 50 years ago. There is so much more we can do with them.

They are not only stronger and more flexible, but also cure quicker. Depending on our needs they will either cure to a flexible solution or solid solution.

It is crucial that the correct products are used in the correct places.

As part of our building material department we offer a selection of wooden doors, door frames, windows and window frames. If we do not have it in stock, please ask for assistance and we will do our best to source it for you.
