Dap not available, whats next best choice

Here in canada the dap product Weldwood spray glue is not available and cannot be shipped from the US. What would be the next best sprayable for doing some leather and headliner work. This is my first ever attempt at upholstery and want to learn how to do things right

Barge Infinity is a rubber cement used to repair the soles on shoes and boots. It is not a spray grade contact adhesive.

In your neck of the woods, look for Helmitin's Helmiprene 4510:
Contact Cements & Solvents - Helmitin

Helmitin is based in Toronto.

Question regarding Canadian products. Ever heard anything on "HH-66 Vinyl Cement Adhesive" available thru the internet from a marine top shop in Georgian Bay Ontario.

Some of the desciption in the ad:

A superior quality fast drying thermoplasticelastomer adhesive. It is used extensively for bonding vinyl coated and vinyl laminated fabrics to themselves or various materials. HH-66 is also used to bond urethanes, vinyl foams and films, rigid plastics, synthetic fabrics, wood, leather and metals. Bond upholstery expanded and non-expanded vinyls to themselves and other surfaces. It is not affected by weather and temperature extremes, and is highly resistant to oil, fuel, grease and many other chemicals. Make bonds within 1-3 minutes. If bonding time is exceeded reactivate adhesive with reapplication, heat or solvent. Can be applied with brush or roller. Application is by brush, roller or squeeze bottle.

OK, so that shop is 1/2 hr in the other direction. Hopefully someone who has used either will chime in on the best choice

HH-66 is basically like the Barge rubber cement. Neither one is sprayable. This kind of thing is used on things like boat cover seams to make them weather tight.

Thanks Dan

Appreciate the expert advice. As a rookie amateur trying to do this it is hard to know what the right products to use are. Throw into the mix, being in Canada just adds another variable to the equasion.

I know we have a good supplier here in town, but they are a genuine old style wholesale. That means no sales to any non-business or business that does not have a account with them. They have been that way for over forty years, when I use to help a local custom upholsterer and still operate that way today.

Will do some digging and see what I can do in sourcing the Helmitin's Helmiprene 4510 in a reasonable quantity from the local distributor.

Just a update for the Canadians.

Just received a reply from the Industrial Sales Manager, Helmitin Adhesives regarding the availability in Canada.

Helmiprene 4510 comes in 53 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails. A bit more than I would use on one car.

May end up doing another run to the border to pick up some. Oh well, won't be doing it until next summer.
