Spray Adhesive for Crafts
This adhesive aerosol is based on Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) in a solvent mixture and is designed to be sprayed with the propellant gas Dimethyl Ether. The spray adhesive effortlessly bonds fabrics, paper, cardboard, wood, hardboard, foams, fleece, and rubber hair with themselves and each other. It is suitable, among other things, for creative crafting, DIY projects, puzzles, collages, presentations, fixing posters or placards, and much more.
For bondings of polystyrene foam, a thin bilateral adhesive application and thorough airing are always necessary to prevent the formation of adhesive nests and thus to prevent the decomposition of the foam. The adhesive is not suitable for soft PVC, leather with a fat content over 12%, faux leather, or products containing plasticizer. A test bonding is recommended for all materials before the large-scale application. The adhesive has an open time of 3-10 minutes (depending on the adhesive application, material, and temperature). It reaches its final strength after approximately 48 hours.
The contained adhesive can be used for bondings in the temperature range from -10 °C to +60 °C, depending on the load and material. The solid content of the adhesive agent is approximately 36%. Due to its quick initial adhesion and short airing time, the adhesive is suitable for numerous areas of application. The valve of the spray head is variably adjustable to vary the length of the vertically running spray jet.
During processing, the material, room, and adhesive temperature should be between +15 °C and +25 °C. Shake the spray can vigorously before use. Spray a very thin layer onto the clean, grease-free, and dry parts to be joined from a distance of 20-30 cm and allow to air for 3-10 minutes (depending on the ambient temperature and absorbency of the substrate). The best time for contact bonding is reached when the adhesive film does not draw threads when touched lightly with the fingers and feels dry but still sticky. Then press the parts to be joined together precisely with strong pressure. Porous, uneven or absorbent substrates should be primed with a very thin layer of adhesive, allowed to air for 5 minutes, and then proceed as described.
