INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING SPRAY-ABLE CONTACT ADHESIVE
Before using any spray-able chemical product ensure that the work area is well ventilated. In a confined space it is recommended that the operator should wear an approved respiratory face mask and appropriate eye and skin protection as per the instructions on the can.
- When gluing trim materials directly to a metal surface. Ensure that the metal is clean, free from rust, dust or any loose material. Clean off any deposits of previously applied adhesive using a Glue & Tar remover (Not White Spirit or Methylated Spirit) and allow the surface to dry thoroughly.
- When gluing materials together where one or both have an absorbent or fibrous surface. (Foams, vinyls, fabrics etc.) The following guidelines should be considered.
- Bear in mind that when using an adhesive spray can, most of the material that flows through the nozzle is solvent (used for thinning down the adhesive to make it sprayable) and propellant. So where a strong bond is required we recommend that you first spray both surfaces where required, so that an even coat of adhesive is visible. This will provide a key.
- When the first coat of adhesive is dry (usually after approx 15 minutes, depending upon ambient temperature) spray both surfaces again. This will ensure that you have sufficient adhesive in place.
- Please be aware that by using this technique you will give the adhesive its maximum performance but that you will need to position the material very carefully before contacting the two surfaces as once together they will not come apart without damage.
