Gluing vinyl and leather to interior car panels.

I am gluing vinyl and leather to interior panels of my classic car, I have been using a spray adhesive from Lowes (3M high strength 90), and it is letting go of the materials after sitting in the sun. What glue would you recommend that I use for this application. I need a permanent bond that will hold even in concave and stretched areas with the these materials.

You are experiencing a phenomena called "plasticizer migration".  The vinyl contains plasticizers that make it soft and pliable.  As a result the plasticizers continue to "move around" and will not allow the adhesive to "set up.  If they didn't exist, the vinyl would be hard, similar to hard plastic.  If the vinyl you're using has a backing, sometimes called "knit backed" or "fuzzy backed", then our DAN TACK #2028 Super Contact Spray Adhesive should work fine and eliminate the problem.  If the vinyl is "raw" or without any backing, you will need to buy a good, solvent based, flammable contact cement for the application. The solvent and rubber (typically neoprene) are not affected by the plasticizers.  We offer a DAP product that is made specifically for this application.  It is sold in 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers.  It can be applied either by spraying, brushing or rolling it on.  Be certain to follow all recommended safety precautions when using a flammable adhesive.

Spray Adhesives to Kill Wasps!

Ok, this is new to me, but one of our customers uses spray adhesives to kill wasps.  Of course when I heard about this I did a Google search and sure enough the spray adhesives seem to be a great way to get rid of the wasps.  If you would like to find out more information and the step by step instructions go to the HOW link below.  It sounds like a easy and relatively safe idea. The wasps become coated with adhesive and die, and the material also clogs the nest's entrance, preventing any wasps returning to the nest from getting in.

Repositioning Paper with Spray Adhesives.

To reposition paper and prevent bleed-through remember a simple rule. Spray lightly and take the time to let it dry. Once the spray adhesive dries completely it will have a nice tacky surface that can be repositioned. This will also prevent the adhesive from becoming yellow or brittle. Let it dry!!
