AFM SafeCoat 3-in-1 Adhesive is a low-odor, non-toxic, formaldehyde-free water-based adhesive. Use it indoors for adhering small wall tiles (< 8" x 8") made of ceramic, vinyl, parquet and slate and for any carpet application (except wool) where a typical carpet adhesive would be used. NOT for use on porcelain tile.
NOTE: 3-in-1 often appears like jello in consistency. This is normal; there are no solvents to maintain a smooth texture while it's in the can. Once troweled, however, it will spread smoothly. If contents are a little stiff, simply attach a paint stir stick to the end of a drill and use to mix the contents of the can.
This product is easy to work with on many different projects around the home or office. It dries quickly and adheres very well without offensive odor. Although it's designed for walls and flooring, we've used it to glue all kinds of objects. For indoor use only.
Features & benefits

Alert: NOTE: Do not apply to substrate in direct sun or where it's hot to the touch as this will cause excessively fast curing and prevent adhesion.
