Once you’ve got your hands on Gekko G52, you’ll be keen to make a start on your spraying. Before you get stuck in, here’s some top tips from the Gekko team to ensure you get off to the best possible start.

Before you get started on your vertical wall cladding job, check the compatibility of Gekko G52 by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on the substrate. Once you’re good to go, ensure your surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc.

G52 Canister Application

  • Spray approximately 6” – 10” away at a 90 degree angle to the surface, applying a uniform, even coat of adhesive to obtain 80% to 100% coverage of the surface. 
  • Allow flash off time for the adhesive to tack off (1-2 mins).

G52 Aerosol Application

  • SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. 
  • Spray approximately 4” – 8″ away at a 90 degree angle to the surface, applying a uniform coat of adhesive to obtain 80-100% coverage of the surface. 
  • Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. 
  • Allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure.
  • If the spray tip clogs, unscrew the spray tip from the gun and clean with Gekko G92 or G93 solvent cleaners. Do NOT use a pin on the spray tip.
