Loctite PL Premium in Australia

#1 Post by Grant Bunter » Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:23 pm

If you're keen to use the recommended adhesive here in Australia...
EDIT: 14th October 2019

Heads up.
Budgetgroup is no longer supplying PL premium.
Forum member Chamesy has discovered another source though (thanks mate).

Contact number and e-mail on the above page.

Cheers,
Grant

Wow, that's suggested retail, and is what most places here are getting. Good find.

The 10oz is the standard size, sells for around $5 in the US. The 28oz contractor size sells here for around $7 so it's a lot better deal.

I heard that the 28oz, while economical, is a pain to use because it's so big, is this true?

I don't have any problems with it. One tube will do a lot of cabs.

Thank you for the info, Bill. I should have gotten some on my TT- I burned through four 10oz tubes! :lol:

Although it's the standard size, I was
1.Happy to find it. The contractors size isn't available through the source I mentioned. Not even loctite Australia are bringing PL in (yet lol, but they may after I spoke to the rep this morning). So this supplier is doing it on their own. Good on them (for us!)...
2.Happy with the price. There are plenty of other companies selling their version here. Selleys is probable the most commonly known other brand and at $16 something including tax/10oz tube I was nearly having kittens what the entire cost may be to build cabs here.

I always do my research before commencing projects.
PL premium is recommended for good reason no doubt, not just because it is widely available in the US.

I used Selleys Liquid Nails Platinum at $10/cartridge from the local Mitre10 hardware here on the east coast of Australia and got a Jack10 and an XF 2x10 easily out of one cartridge...

Well no surprise I have not gotten any PL adhesive from the above linked company. I have called them for months and they have never gotten anymore in. They never return phone calls and never seem to have any. So with this being said can I just order PL from Leland and have him ship it to me?

I have asked Leland this before but he has not answered. I would like to hurry up and order some adhesive but if I have to I will just get some local adhesive. So help please if you can.
