Solvite wallpaper paste – Still going strong

SOLVITE Extra Strong Wallpaper Adhesive – still going strong after all these years. Solvite is another iconic British brand in DIY. A brand made famous for putting the strength of its adhesion to the ultimate test. In 1968, to demonstrate its strength in a dramatic way, Solvite pasted a man in decorator’s overalls to a board and suspended him over shark-infested waters. To surpass this, Henkel UK’s managing director at the time, was pasted to the

board whilst being suspended over a snake pit, Indiana Jones style! They went on to shoot the ‘man-on- a-board’ up the Stratosphere Tower in Los Angeles, and then lastly flew him over Miami suspended from a helicopter. An old man now but one that’s still going strong. Today Solvite remains the nation’s much-loved wallpaper adhesive for all types of wallpaper, with ancillary lines that make the wallpapering task even easier. From the 1960s, to present day, Solvite continues to be made at Henkel’s factory in Winsford Cheshire. n For more information, visit:

The high strength grab adhesive that eliminates the need for nails or screws, was first launched in 1996. Manufactured in Winsford, Cheshire, it quickly became a household name with national television advertising.
