This rubbery putty-like adhesive substance is water resistant and can be used in in conditions where temperatures range from -30°c to 100°c. It is especially well suited to temporary applications and for attaching light items like posters and other pieces of paper to walls, noticeboards, refrigerators etc. – however if a substantial amount is applied it can also hold heavier objects as a short term measure.
In an emergency Prestik can even be used as a makeshift sealant in low-pressure, low temperature applications.
Prestik is manufactured and marketed in South Africa by international adhesives company Bostik, a subsidiary of Total.
