How do you apply carpet adhesives?
Firstly, you need to make sure you have an adhesive that is designed for use on carpet. Many adhesives simply aren't suitable, and either won't stick (adhere) to the carpet, or can damage it.
These carpet glue has been designed to bond these types of surfaces together.Firstly, make sure that the surfaces that the glue is being applied on are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax, grease, etc...
Once the area where the contact adhesive will be used is clean, make sure you have adequate ventilation, and where possible we recommend shaking the canister well before using.
Attach and secure the hose tightly onto the spray gun (both sold separately - please see our starter kit above if required) with required tip. Then attach the other end of the hose onto the canister.
At this point make sure the hose-valve connections are securely tight, and then open the valve on the canister slowly and fully. Next check for any leaks during this process.
Once you are happy there are no leaks, unlock the trigger on the spray gun to start spraying.
Prior to full spraying, please check the compatibility by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on the carpet / surface. If this test goes well then continue using the full application.
Once you start spraying, make sure you spray about 10cm - 20cm (4 Inches - 8 inches) away at a 90° angle to the surface, applying a uniform, even coat of adhesive to obtain 80% to 100% coverage of the surface. If necessary, spray another coat of glue in areas that appear to need more adhesive.
For best results, make sure you spray both surfaces to be bonded with one surface vertically and the other surface horizontally and allow the adhesive to tack off until no adhesive transfers to the knuckle when touched.
Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure to get the best bond.
A roller is recommended to apply a uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength (please see our spray accessories section if you require this), and allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure.
For best results, the temperature of the adhesive and the surfaces being bonded should be between 60°F - 80°F (16°C - 27°C).
Can carpet spray tips clog up and how do you unclog them?
If the spray tip clogs, unscrew the spray tip from the gun and clean with a solvent such as lacquer thinner or acetone. Do not use a pin on the spray tip orifice.
Once it is clear continue spraying.
