for permanent joints; adhesive based on synthetic elastomers (rubber), cream coloured, limited use on polystyrene foam possible, open time (working time) is 30 minutes maximum, hazard warning: F+ (= highly inflammable), N (= environmental hazard)
This permanent adhesive spray is an economically priced, universal glue that is designed less for working with paper and photographs than for large area bonds on lighter weight materials usually found in workshops and handicrafts. The possible materials include cardboard, wood veneer, cork, leather, various textiles, soft foams, rubber and different types of plastic films. Our experience has shown that it can also be used to bond polystyrene (rigid) foam (styrofoam, styropor) – but preliminary tests should be made on the actual material you plan on using.
Please note when working with paper that the strong version of the Weicon spray adhesive will bleed through on paper that is less than 130 g/m².
The spray pattern from this version is somewhat unpredictable, which means it is not really great for use on smaller surfaces. According to the manufacturer, the contents of the can is sufficient to coat about 4 m² (depending, of course, on the type of material(s) being bonded). In comparison to the adhesive sprays from 3M, the Weicon sprays are less expensive and have a longer open time (working time), which for many jobs can be a real advantage while for others it might be a negative.
Applications: When gluing large areas it is often difficult
to evenly distribute the adhesive everywhere before it has already begun to dry.
This problem can be gotten around by using a spray glue. When evenly and thinly
sprayed, it will form a coat of adhesive which will not bleed through or make
paper wavy. Spray glue can be used on numerous materials: paper and cardboard, a
wide variety of plastics and plastic foams (glued to themselves or on wood and
metal). Typical areas of use for spray glue include mounting drawings, placards,
photographs, maps and the like on solid backgrounds. Examples of substrates
abound: KAPA boards, honeycomb board, thick cardboards, basic corrugated boards,
Forex boards, etc.
Treatment: When mounting on smaller surfaces it is not the
substrate that receives the even coat of glue but rather the object that is to
be mounted. After the glue has been applied, mounting should begin on one of the
short sides and the rest carefully stretched out and pressed into place. This
pressing should always be done from the middle outwards as much as possible so
as to avoid small bubbles forming. After that is completed, a PRESSURE ROLLER or
a FELT SQUEEGEE-TYPE APPLICATOR should be employed for further flattening
purposes. If, for example, you plan to glue-mount a large number of ink-jet
prints on presentation boards, it is helpful to have many separate underlayers
on hand because as you spray the backside of a print there will always be some
overspray on the underlayer upon which you will then not be able to lay the next
