Devcon. For a strong hold when bonding plastics, metals, fiberglass, wood, and more, try Plastic Welder II. Requiring little or no surface preparation, the two-part methacrylate adhesive will not run or drip when used on vertical surfaces, the maker says. Attaining a functional cure in three hours, its load-bearing bonds acclimate to temperatures from 250° F to -40° F. Weight and stress are distributed across the entire length of the bead, rather than concentrating in specific areas as with mechanical fasteners, the maker says. Several colors and packaging options are available. 978.777.1100. www.devcon.com.

Moisture protection makes the tiles ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and elsewhere in the home. 800.337.3746. www.pergo.com.
