Pro-Tect's special environmental adhesive spray glue is an important step in the process of the installation of Pro-Tect's shrink film. The heavy duty spray adhesive is used as a means to temporarily "tack" the film's laps or seams together until the installer can heat the laps or seams using the Shrinkfast 998 or 975 Heat Gun. The adhesive spray glue helps promote a stronger bond of the overlapped material after heat seaming/welding together. Pro-Tect's shrink wrap tapes conform to MIL-T-2205.
Apply a light coating of Pro-Tect's environmental heavy duty spray adhesive to both surfaces of the shrink film at the lap or seam prior to the heat process. Allow about five (5) seconds for it to set-up prior to pressing the two surfaces together to form the initial seal. The glue can should be agitated during the spray glue application process to create a webbing pattern.
Using the heat tool and heat glove, apply heat directly to the seam, along with consistent firm “patting” of the heated plastic with the gloved hand. Caution should be taken not to overheat or under heat the area. The plastic will weld together during the correct application.
While the shrink film is still warm to the touch, the laps and seams are then taped off using Pro-Tect's 9.5 mil 4" wide shrink wrap tape.
