The Blue Grip and Butter Grip
A blue grip is a fancy-pants name for something that’s actually blue, if that’s possible. The colour evokes an image of a smooth and shiny surface, which is exactly what you want for bonding concrete, plaster or tiles to the wall. Unlike some other materials, it dries almost instantly so it is the ideal solution for a busy plasterer who wants to get on with the job in hand.
The Tour de France blue grip | GAIN THE EDGE may have been at the forefront of the blue grip movement but it has become a household name in the world of DIY and home improvement. It is a high performance bonding agent for smooth surfaces which improves the odds of your next lick of paint or tiling sticking, and makes the process a little easier on the eye.
