Contact Adhesive should be stored at optimum temperatures, ranging from 15-35˚C.
CAUTION: Keep away from direct sunlight. Do not stand on a cold concrete floor.


Always use Contact Adhesive products with suitable accessories.


Carefully perform setup process:

  • Ensure the gun is fitted with the correct spray tip.
  • Connect hose and gun to the canister.
  • Open canister valve.


For the ideal spray, hold the spray gun at a 90˚ angle to the surface approximately 10-15 cm (4-6”) away. Spray in long, steady strokes releasing trigger with each change of direction, ensuring the spray pattern is overlapped by about 2.5 cm (1”).
TIP: Always give the edges a second coat, and it is best to coat the edges first to ensure a double coat.


These products are contact adhesives, ensure that both surfaces have been covered achieving an 80-100% coverage for best results.


Allow Contact Adhesive to tack up for 2 minutes before bonding, protect from contaminates such as dust and moisture. Adhesive on each surface should be dry and non-transferable to touch.


Use a J Roller to eliminate air pockets.


Use solvent cleaner to remove any overspray.


  1. Do not turn off the valve or disconnect the hose if the canister still contains glue. For best results, leave the canister in a ready-to-spray position for the next application.
  2. Once Contact Adhesive canister is empty:
    • Turn off the adhesive canister valve.
    • Bleed the hose of excess adhesive.
    • Disconnect the hose from the canister and connect to a new canister immediately

    If cleaning required than connect to Solvent Cleaner Canister / Aerosol.

    • Spray Solvent Cleaner through gun and hose.
    • Bleed the hose
    • Disconnect hose from Solvent Cleaner and connect to new canister.


1. Gun will not spray:

  • Valve turned on?
  • Gun turned on?
  • Blockage in gun?

Strip down and clean all parts in solvent cleaner.

When setting up a new system which includes a new tank, hose and gun it is advisable to run the hose and gun without a tip initially to avoid blocking it. Only until the adhesive is seen to becoming through the gun and only on new systems.

If difficulties are encountered getting a new canister started always remove the spray tip FIRST to check if adhesive is coming through the gun. Clean the tip and replace.

Gun sprays but a heavy weight of adhesive?

Has the canister been subjected to low temperatures? Bring the canister up to room temperature. Turn it upside down and shake to agitate.

Blockage in hose?

Gun and hose should be connected to a canister at all times. Failure to do so will result in the adhesive drying in the hose and gun causing blockages. ATA Pty Ltd can provide canister cleaning kits to remove these blockages.

2. Adhesive Failure?

Contact Adhesives work best when stuck to itself to form the bond.Before making the assumption that the adhesive has failed it is important to consider the following points:

Is there adhesive on both surfaces? 
Is there enough adhesive?80-100% coverage of both surfaces?
Were the substrates cold?Enough to produce “Bloom”?
Was the canister or its environment cold?Cold canisters will spray more gas and less adhesive giving low adhesive coat weights
Was sufficient pressure applied to the piece to bring the two surfaces together?Contact adhesive must make contact to itself to form the bond. Large areas left open with low coat weights are particularly susceptible to this problem
Were they suitable substrates?Whilst bContact Adhesives will bond a wide variety of materials it is important to test the substrate to ensure the product will work on your particular application.

3. Laminate Problems:

Laminate zips off

Usually a result of a combination of insufficient adhesive being applied and insufficient pressure applied during assembly. Dust contamination is another consideration.


When assembled the piece looked fine but subsequently blisters appear. Often the result of insufficient adhesives applied to one or both surfaces combined with insufficient pressure applied to the piece. Remember adhesives should give 80-100% coverage to both surfaces. If the substrates are very absorbent a second coat may be required. Also if the substrates are impermeable it is possible to trap solvent inside which may also cause blistering.

4. Heat Resistance:

Whilst Contact Adhesives have a high level of heat resistance (up to 100˚C) they are not recommended for use on light boxes, radiator covers and other areas where high levels of heat resistance is required.



  1. Surfaces to be bonded should be clean, dry and free from dust and grease.
  2. Connect the hose to the canister and the spray gun to the hose and tighten the connections.
  3. Open the valve on the canister. The valve should remain open until the canister is used up. Use the locking nut on the gun after use. Turning off the valve will result in the adhesive drying in the hose and gun causing blockages.
  4. Spray adhesive from 20-25cm away onto one or both surfaces.
  5. For one-way application let adhesive dry for 30 seconds until tacky, and then press into position.
  6. For two-way application, spray both surfaces and allow drying for 2 –5 minutes before bonding.
  7. For temporary bonding, spray one surface and allow drying for 2 – 5 minutes before bonding.
  8. Excess adhesive can be removed with a solvent cleaner or white spirit.

Note:dries in two minutes under normal conditions, but this will vary under different temperatures and humidifies. High humidity and low temperatures will slow the drying time and if the temperature gets very low, can produce bloom. Bloom is moisture which forms on the glue line caused by solvent evaporation lowering the air temperature above it.


Contact Adhesive can be removed with Solvent Cleaner.

Storage and Shelf Life

Protect from extremes of temperature in a controlled environment between 15 and 35°C, and away from direct sunlight. Do not stand on a cold concrete floor. Low temperatures can result in low adhesive coat weights and poor bonds. If canisters are subjected to low temperatures the adhesive will thicken and sometimes separate from the propellant. After bringing the canister back to room temperature, shake or roll the canister to mix the adhesive and propellant.

Stored under the correct conditions in unopened containers, the product will have a shelf life of 24 months.



Contact Adhesive is supplied in a one trip of disposable canister that has a circular piercing ring near the neck, which is designed to be punched out when the canister is completely empty so that the canister can then be safely disposed of ensuring, compliance with all Local, Regional, National and EC Regulations.

1. Canisters contain compressed gas and are considered empty after opening the valve carefully to vent any excess adhesive or pressure – see opposite


2. Once all the contents have escaped locate the circular plug on the canister shown opposite.


3. Puncture a hole in the plug on the canister using a hammer and a non-sparking brass punch or any other non-sparking object that can be used as a punch


4. The empty canisters are now accepted by steel recycling facilities and landfills, but it is suggested to follow any regulations before disposing or recycling canisters.
