DIY Acrylic Stud Adhesive

Gyprock DIY Acrylic Stud Adhesive is a pre-mixed adhesive used for fixing Gyprock plasterboard and fibre cement wallboard to timber or steel frames.

Typical Applications

Acrylic Stud Adhesive is suitable for both residential and commercial construction where plasterboard or fibre cement is used. Applied by hand with a small broadknife, it is used to fix board to timber or steel stud walls and ceilings.

It is not for use in fire rated systems or for walls where tiles will be applied. Adhesive must not be applied at fastener points.

Used in conjunction with permanent fasteners, Acrylic Stud Adhesive provides superior bond strength between the plasterboard sheet and wall or ceiling frame. The formula is stable and won’t skin in hot weather or thicken in cold weather.

Acrylic Stud Adhesive is also easy to identify thanks to its distinctive blue colour.

For adhering plasterboard to masonry walls, use Gyprock Masonry Adhesive or, in WA only, Gyprock Masonry Adhesive 100.

Fixing Systems – for steel and timber framed walls and ceilings

In most situations, the recommended fixing system for interior walls and ceilings is a combination of adhesive, such as Acrylic Stud Adhesive, and permanent fasteners such as nails or screws.

Depending on the characteristics and positioning of the wall or ceiling, various combinations of fixing materials are recommended. For example, the fastener only fixing system is to be used on walls which will be tiled, over existing linings or in fire rated installations. To check which fixing system is best for your application, refer to the Gyprock Residential Installation Guide.
