Spraying contact adhesive is different than spraying paint or even glue used to join open cell foam. That's obvious because their viscosities are so much different. I have a "Critter" sprayer (small sprayer with an attached glass jar) to spray the K-Grip glue that I use to bond open cell foam, and it has worked like a champ for 14 years, but it won't spray contact adhesive. You need a larger fluid nozzle to spray contact adhesive, at least 1.8 MM. Find a cheap paint gun ($19.95 USD)with lousy tolerances and it will probably work fine, or get larger fluid nozzles for your paint guns. I would definitely check the Helmetin web site or the side of the can to see if you could or should reduce the adhesive. My DAP Weldwood landau top and trim adhesive (spray grade) cans say to definitely NOT thin the product.
