Question spraying contact cement, lets talk!

Does anyone here use a gun and pressure tank to spray contact cement? Please tell me about your set-up, and what kind of adhesive you use.

Thanks!

Hi Jack


I have a 5 gal. bucket of it and I use a cheap HF spray gun ," adhesive " I don't recall the name of it but I will look at it and post the name..but it works great...made for just that type of job,,but I do need to replace the spray gun from time to time.. it turns the gun into a real mess in short order

But you may want to use a pot I have the big one and the small one but the small pot works the best for small jobs..

Household Low Volume, Low Pressure Spray Gun

Paint Pressure Tank - 2-1/2 Gallon

Professional Spray Gun Kit

Hi Jack.
I've used a product called sta-put many times. I comes in a pressurized canister like the propane type you use with the barbeque & the spray nozzle looks like the type on a bug sprayer. It's expensive but works very good. Other than that I use contact cement laminate & roll it on.

Guys, thanks, last night I purchased a 2.5 gallon pressure pot and 2 guns, (A) Binks BBR, and (B) a DeVilbliss something, it's not right here in front of me, from craigslist, will pick it up in a week or so. Anyways, this is roughly the set up I am familiar with, I helped a friend years ago briefly in his counter top facility. Occasionally I will still stop by if I have something small to do, and those are usually home projects, I've never done much laminate work commercially. However it's looking like I may get a rather large laminate job and I need to be in the game. Hence the questions.

Hi Jack,
I worked in a cabinet factory for a short while and they also used Stay-put. It does what it's name implies.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Jack,

I built custom aircraft cabinetry for many years and every place I worked used 3M 1357 Scotch-Weld Neoprene High Performance Contact Adhesive Light Yellow. It comes in other colors however we could not use anything except the yellow. It sprays well and holds good. Don't know how it compares in price to the other products suggested but it gives you one more to look into.

Jack; tack time is longer and cost is higher but, all things considered, water based contact cement is a lot more user friendly for large surfaces. As you know from your own experience, on-site conditions are a bit unpredictable, and dealing with highly combustible solvent fumes is just one more complication that you don't need, and which can be avoided.
What does your Workers Comp. expect in the way of flammable solvent fume protection, on-site? It'd certainly affect the cost~benefit consideration(?)...
