HOW TO USE LEATHER GLUE
Work on a protected area as spills can damage sensitive surfaces, such as polished, cellulose surfaces and fabrics. Wearing gloves is recommended.
Make sure all surfaces to be bonded are clean and dry, free from dust, dirt, and grease. When bonding leather, avoid spills onto the shiny side as a mark will be left.
- To bond non-absorbent surfaces such as metal or glass, use a brush to apply a thin film of adhesive to both surfaces. Allow 5 to 10 minutes drying time and then, having correctly positioned the surfaces, press them together firmly. The bond will be instant and non-adjustable.
- If one or both surfaces are absorbent apply a generous film of adhesive to one surface only and immediately join the two surfaces together under pressure. Note: using this technique, initial bond strengths will be lower.
- Remove surplus adhesive using nail varnish remover or acetone.
