Some adhesives can attack mirror backing, making them unsuitable for such applications, however EB25 doesn’t contain the nasty chemicals which can cause this to happen making it ideal for hanging mirrors to difficult surfaces such as tiles, making it a bathroom fitter essential.

Being sanitary and food safe means that EB25 can be used in kitchens and food preparation areas including bonding counter tops and sealing around the edge once installed.
