Secure the best bonds around with some Tensor Tips on mastering TensorGrip® L17 - the ultimate web spray contact adhesive:

- TensorGrip® L17 is particularly powerful when used on clean and dry surfaces. Indeed, you can even use this product for bonding sheet metals, where surface preparation is very important – the surface must be degreased and lightly abraded with fine abrasive or non-woven material. In other bonding jobs, make sure 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 60 degrees F - 80 degrees F (16degrees C - 27 degrees C).

- Spray about 10-20 cm (4” – 8”) 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. If necessary, spray another coat of adhesive in areas that appear to need more adhesive. 

- Spray both surfaces to be bonded, one surface vertically and the other surface horizontally. Allow the adhesive to tack off until no adhesive transfers to the knuckle when touched.

- Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. A roller is recommended to apply a 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 solvents such as lacquer thinner or acetone. Do not use a pin on the spray tip orifice.
