View Full Version : Adhesive

The spray adhesive has started to fail on my carpeted false wall. What are some stronger, cheaper or preferably the same $ options? It would also have to be available locally.

I want to "set it and forget it".

What adhesive are you using?

Some type of spray adhesive from a fabric store, all I remember is that it wasn't 3m and it cost like $8. It was a couple years ago.

I'll use s.a again, just wanted to see if there was a better/stronger option out there for about the same price.

I would try some 3m and see where that gets you...their stuff is super sticky

If you used 3M it should be some what ok. You can hit up home depot and they will have a few options from 3M that you can use. If your carpet is coming up along the edges only, you can use a hot glue gun to fix it.

It's iffy throughout the panel but worse on the edges. I'd be better off just redoing the whole thing. Guess i'll try and do a better job this time, Thank's guys.

3M is what I use for spray in a can. I prefer DAP Weldwood contact cement as I use that more. depending on the material if the fabric is going behind the panel like a beauty panel, i put a few 1/2" staples.

Hi how this DAP Weldwood? Is it really strong?
