HOW TO USE FABRIC GLUE
Ensure all surfaces that will be in contact with the sealant must be clean, dry, and free of dust, dirt, rust, oil, and other contaminants.
Work on a protected surface and take care during use, not to spill or splash the adhesive onto other fabrics or surfaces.
- For best result, first practice on a scrap of material or unseen area.
- Point the tube away from you and unscrew the cap. Push the top of the cap into the top of the tube to pierce the tube then screw on the applicator.
- Squeezing from the base of the tube, apply a bead of glue to each of the surfaces to be joined and spread it out with the applicator.
- Press both surfaces together immediately. Allow to dry before rough handling. Drying times may vary. Remains flexible when dry.
- Remove the applicator and replace the cap. Wash the applicator in warm water ready for next time.
- Ironing will improve product performance.
- When dry, the bonds are flexible and permanent. They may be machine-washed, tumble dried and ironed.
NOTE: On some open-weave, light shades and delicate fabrics the glue may come through on the other side due to the adhesive passing through the weave. Application of excessive adhesive or pressure may cause similar effect and darkening of the fabric may be observed. If in doubt carefully test a small area before proceeding.
- Wet adhesive on fabrics and porous surfaces must be quickly washed with warm soapy water. Repeat if necessary, with fresh warm soapy water, then rinse and dry.
- Dried adhesive on fabrics can be difficult to remove. Always test the effect of any cleaner or solvent on an inconspicuous area of the fabric first, and check area when dry.
- Dried adhesive on smooth non-porous surfaces may be rubbed off or cleaned with warm soapy water.
