Here's what not to do, when using spray adhesives:
- Don't close the thumb screw off when the hose and gun is connected, otherwise the glue will cure in the hose.
- Don't overapply adhesive, too much glue doesn't improve the bond.
- Don't bring the two substrates together immediatley after sparying the glue. This will trap solvent and cause delamination.
- Don't use conventional general purpose spray adhesive for bonding polystyrene, we have an alternative for this.
- Don't leave the gun and hose off the canister.
Here's what you should do, when using spray adhesives:
- Spray adhesive evenly.
- Hold the gun about 15-20 cm from the substrate being sprayed.
- Leave sprayed up substrates apart for 4-6 mins*.
- Use a laminating roller to ensure all areas have bonded together.
- Keep the gun tip clean with cleaner, to prevent clogging.
