Gekko G51 General Purpose Contact Adhesive User Tips

Canister Application

  • Prior to use, check compatibility by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on the substrate.
  • Before bonding ensure that surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc. 
  • For best results, the temperature of the adhesive and the surfaces being bonded should be between 16°C – 27°C. 
  • Use with adequate ventilation.
  • When possible we recommend shaking the canister well before using.
  • 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. 

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. 
  • A pressure roller can be used to apply uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength. 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.
