Shop Easy to Use Spray Adhesives & Glue Sprays at Spotlight

Spray adhesives are available for various materials, so they have many applications in crafting. Glue sprays are an effective way to bond light materials such as paper or cardboard and are easy to use when you need to cover a large surface area. If you are new to the use of spray adhesives, it is not that uncommon for mistakes to happen or for the adhesive to be less effective. To help you avoid those problems and ensure safety, read the below FAQs and tips on using spray adhesives.

Spray Adhesives FAQs

Should I prepare the material before I add adhesive?

No matter which surface you use, you must always ensure the surface is prepared first. There are some things that can influence the effectiveness of your spray adhesive. Some of the most dominant include water, dust, debris, oil, and grease. So, before the application of your adhesive, always ensure there are no such substances or compounds on the surface of your material.

Where should I store spray adhesive when I am not using it?

As is the case with most types of adhesives, you should store it in a cool and dry location. Many adhesives are flammable, so keeping them in warmer environments could pose a potential danger. Moisture in the air could also influence the product inside. To protect the nozzle of your spray adhesive, it is wise to remove any remaining residue. If not removed, it could clog the nozzle and render your spray applicator useless. If your nozzle should clog, you can always attempt to correct the problem with some store-bought turpentine.

How do I protect my work surface against spray adhesive?

Whether you are using the adhesive outside or on your workbench, you should always protect the environment you are in. Adhesive such as these can also have a considerable spraying distance, so it can be a good idea to add surface protection in a larger area than you estimate the adhesive can reach. There are various things you can use to protect a surface against spray adhesive and most of them are relatively inexpensive. Most crafters will use some old fabric or newspapers, but a tarp will do just fine too.

Can I use spray adhesives indoors?

You can use spray adhesives indoors, but you must consider some of the fumes and smells that can be released when you use this product. As such, you should only use spray adhesives in a well-ventilated room. Also, if you are prone to respiratory problems such as asthma, added protection will be required when you use the product inside. Special ventilator masks are available for this purpose. You should also open windows and doors before using the product, this ensures that all the fumes and smells can dissipate from the room.
