Vinyl Spray Adhesive | Spray Glue
What is Vinyl Spray Adhesive | Spray Glue?
Vinyl spray glues have a high performance, plasticiser resistant adhesive specially formulated for bonding vinyl, rubber and plastics.
This one-sided bond adhesive gives faster and greater efficiencies in areas requiring an adhesive to be applied to one surface only - due to physical constraints when applying to both sides.
They are for use in areas on vinyl and other high plasticised flooring and fabric applications that are prone to fail.
These type of contact adhesive is suitable for rubber, vinyl, FRL and many metals such as aluminium, and is supplied in a contact adhesive pressure pot.
Always test a small sample of the materials first to ensure the suitability of the product for the application.

How do you apply vinyl spray glues?
Firstly, this spray adhesive is designed to be applied primarily on 1 side; however, it can be applied to two surfaces to be bonded together.
Secondly, make sure that surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc... For best results, the temperature of the adhesive and the surfaces being bonded should be between 60°F - 80°F (16°C - 27°C).
Use with adequate ventilation, and when possible we recommend shaking the canister well before using.Next, attach and secure hose tightly onto the spray gun with required tip, and attach the other end of the hose onto the canister.
At this point please make sure the hose-valve connections are securely tight, and once they are open the valve on the canister slowly and fully. While you do this, please check for leaks during this process.
Once you are happy there are no leaks unlock the trigger on the spray gun to start spraying.
Prior to use, please check compatibility by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on area where you want to apply the glue.
If the test goes fine, then spray about 10-20 cm (4inches - 8inches) away at a 90° angle to the surface making sure you apply a uniform, even coat of adhesive to obtain 80% to 100% coverage of the surface.
If necessary, spray another coat of adhesive in areas that appear to need more glue.
Spray both surfaces to be bonded, one surface vertically and the other surface horizontally, and allow the adhesive to tack off until no adhesive transfers to the knuckle when touched.
Then adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. A roller is recommended to apply a uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength, and allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure.
How do you handle and store vinyl adhesive canisters?
Firstly, make sure you turn the valve on the canister into the off position and spray out remaining adhesive left in the hose.
Once the hose is empty, disconnect the spray hose and gun from the canister, and reconnect the spray hose to a canister of cleaning solvent (sold separately) and spray out until the liquid is clear - which indicates that the hose and gun are now clean.
If you choose to leave the hose and spray gun on the canister, leave the valve on the canister open.
Do not disconnect the hose / gun from the canister, and make sure you close and lock the spray gun to prevent unwanted spraying.
To get the most out of these glues when it comes to storing the canister please make sure the following is adhered to:
- Consult Material Safety Data Sheet prior to use
- DO NOT store at temperatures over 50°C
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight
- Do Not store directly on the concrete floor
- For optimum performance, store at 18°C during use, but must always be above 10°C
- When connected, keep the valve open and hose pressurised at all times
- DO NOT close valve until ready to connect to new cylinder
- Release pressure in the hose before disconnection
- Always test product to determine suitability for your particular application prior to use in production
Can a 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.
