Spray adhesive: The ideal helper for large adhesive surfaces
If there's one thing you don't want when gluing, it's visible marks. In order to glue large areas, you should therefore buy spray adhesive!
Why? Spray adhesive does not cause unsightly curling and is suitable for many different materials and applications. Whether you want something to be removable and repositionable or permanent and extra strong:
In our online shop you are guaranteed to find the right spray adhesive for your individual application.
What is spray adhesive?
It doesn't come out of a stick or cartridge, isn't brushed on and doesn't liquefy. Spray adhesive is applied using a pressurized container, which spreads the adhesive spray thinly over the surfaces to be bonded. This predestines it for use on large surfaces. This allows you to apply the adhesive quickly and evenly to several square centimeters or even square meters.
Spray adhesive is suitable for use on:
In addition, spray adhesive is available with different adhesive strengths and for a wide variety of materials. It can be purchased both removable and as a permanent adhesive. You can remove removable spray adhesive even days later in order to reposition and re-glue elements.
The permanent variant of the spray adhesive, on the other hand, is extra strong, holds securely and cannot be removed or repositioned after application.
The advantages of spray adhesive
The practical thing about adhesive spray is not only that it is suitable for gluing large areas - but also that spray adhesive is transparent after application. Especially when repairing objects, you don't want the adhesive to be too noticeable.
You also want to avoid soft material waving due to the adhesive used. This is impossible with spray adhesive because it can be applied thinly and evenly using the can. Spray adhesive can also be heat and moisture resistant - an important property in some applications.
Waterproof spray adhesive is particularly suitable for outdoor areas, for example.
In our range you will find both removable spray adhesives (if applied on one side) and extra strong spray adhesives for strong and permanent bonding on uneven and rough surfaces.
For which purposes is spray adhesive suitable?
Spray glue is great for crafting and decorating because it works with many popular craft supplies - including cardboard, paper and felt. Other materials can also be bonded very well with it. However, you should only choose relatively light materials.
For example, spray adhesive works well with paper, but is less suitable for holding heavy steel plates. Special industrial adhesive is required here.
It can also be used profitably when dealing with textiles or clothing. For example, you can use spray adhesive to glue fabric and patch tears with the appropriate textile spray adhesive.
Since it is ideal for large areas, it is also suitable for upholstery and repairs in the car - for example to cover the roof liner or trunk with artificial leather using spray adhesive.
Even real leather can be processed with the spray adhesive.
And even in model making, it can be of great service to hobbyists, for example to cover large areas with grass.
Tip: It can also be practical to use removable spray adhesive to be able to separate objects from one another later and use them elsewhere.
How do you use spray adhesive?
It is best to use spray adhesive in a well-ventilated area with a large work surface and cover it with paper or foil.
When spraying you should keep a distance of 20 to 30 centimeters between the can and the surface to be glued. You must also remove grease and dust from the surfaces beforehand and they should be dry. After spraying, the adhesive must flash off for a short time before connecting the two elements.
This takes a few minutes (observe the manufacturer's instructions).
Then press the adhesive surfaces together and allow the adhesive to harden for several hours. You can remove residues of spray adhesive with lighter fluid or white spirit.
Can you use spray adhesive with magnets?
In principle, there is nothing wrong with attaching smaller and lighter magnets to surfaces with spray adhesive. However, special magnetic adhesive is ideal. This is specially designed for the use of magnetic surfaces.
