Spray adhesives suit large surfaces

Adhesive tapes manufacturer tesa has launched a range of professional spray adhesives and cleaners for the large surface adhesion of different materials.

From large format graphic displays and exhibition stands, to model construction and upholstery, bonding materials with a large surface area is one of the most important and challenging processes, especially when the substrates to be bonded are different and have varying weights.

The different characteristics of these aerosol spray adhesives and industrial cleaners provide an efficient solution for most materials and different levels of adhesion. Developed for lightweight materials, such as paper, fabric and Styrofoam in particular, spray glue 60021 ensures permanent adhesive bonding. Its fine, even mist provides excellent adhesion results on both smooth and slightly uneven surfaces.

Superior strength, especially on rough and porous surfaces such as foam and fabric, is offered by spray glue 60022. This temperature-resistant spray adhesive also bonds heavy materials such as wood and metal. Fitted with a vario valve, this product provides infinitely variable spray quantity control which helps to form an even film of adhesive on a broad array of surfaces while also offering a practical handling solution.

For those industries previously mentioned where large surface materials are regularly constructed and then deconstructed, another challenge is presented in the process of temporary adhesion. With spray glue 60023, lightweight materials such as advertising billboards or posters can be easily removed and repositioned. This UV-resistant transparent spray creates a thin, even adhesive film. It can also be applied more thickly, or on both sides, to achieve permanent adhesion.

The company's 60040 product removes various types of soiling and residue and prepares surfaces for gluing and and can be used to correct virtually any mistake made. The product eliminates adhesive residue, for example if glue is sprayed outside the intended area or the wrong adhesive tape is used.
