Once guns and hoses are connected to the canister for the first time, never turn the canister valve off throughout its useful life – this will stop adhesive curing in the hose and the hose becoming blocked – this will extend the life of the spray equipment.
Ensure all gun and hose connections are tight prior to use – this will stop any leaks when product is in use
Always use the adjustment wheel behind the trigger on the spray gun – this allows users to adjust the width of the spray pattern to suit the size of the area they are spraying on – you can achieve a spray width from 1” up to 20” giving users flexibility and full controllability.
Setting the width of the spray pattern according to the size of the spray area reduces the likelihood of overspray- this reduces wastage and means the glue will go further
When using Polyurethane based products always use the spray solvent cleaners provided to maintain equipment – before putting the spray gun down, give the spray tip a spray with solvent cleaner to ensure the gun is ready for use next time – this stops the tips curing up and saves downtime.
Take the time out to ensure all substrates (this would be membranes and insulation boards when applied to roofing) are free of dirt and debris prior to bonding -this will ensure optimum bond strength and performance.
For optimum performance use canisters in temperatures above 5 degrees Celsius
