It takes a special adhesive to hold fast when the temperature goes up.

And Clear-Tite is a special adhesive. Developed to hold fast at temperatures of up to 250°F, it’s the clear choice for installations where a hot pan, a warm oven or a steamy faucet might cause lesser glues to soften.

Maybe that’s why Clear-Tite has been the clear choice for more than 40 years for everything from tile and linoleum to cabinets, countertops, glass, carpeting and more. It leaves your installation flawless – even when the heat is on.

Used in the manufacture of kitchen cabinets, countertops, desktops, tabletops, store fixtures, and hard orthotics.

Compatible Materials:  Canvas, Carpeting, Ceramics, Concrete, Cove Base, Crepe Rubber, Fiberglass, Foam (EVA, Nitrile, Vinyl), Formica, Glass, Leather, Metals, Neoprene, Particle Board, Some Plastics, Tile
