Upholstry Glue

Ok, I'm tired of trying to use the various glues available locally.
They never seem to hold as well as I want them too. I'm about to do some scuplted door panels with foam and cloth. I really want it to hold well in the corners and stay in place.
In the past I've used both 3M spray ons available here and every brand of brushable contact cement I could find, both flammable and not.
What do the pros use here? I see on some of the TV show they spray it out of a pump up tank. I want my stuff to stay put! Any ideas?

Larry

Larry, try your local upholstery shops.
You'll need to bring a sealable container [not glass] for them to put it in. Mine charged going price for it, was reasonable. It can be brushed on or sprayed.
Use in a well ventilated area. It's real good contact cement and does not come apart.
Bunch of us did our interiors past couple years and no one has experienced fabric, foam or panels coming apart.

You need to use Landau Top and trim adhesive, its contact cement, get it from a place that supplies to the industry so you know your getting the real deal. If your doing the sculped door panels and youre using closed cell foam you must scuff the foam to release the skin, the contact cement will peel off of the skin along with your material if you dont. You can use a cheap spray gun to spray it, like one from harbor freight. Spray both sides, the material and the panel, let dry untill it does not feel tacky any more, then go for it.

I dont know if this will help my Friend who runs his own shop was telling me his wife's Sable's dash was peeling off {like the all do around the instrument cluster}
So he used That gorilla glue & some sand bags to conform to the shape for weight

Its been a year & 1/2 & its still holding

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for the help guys. So there is something different out there.
I think I'll go to a bigger town and ask at an upholstry shop for the landau top glue.

The glue you want is made by HELMETEN. (I hope I spelled it right)
To be specific, ask for HELMETEN GREEN. This is the glue that is used by pros in their spray guns. This stuff is unreal at how well it sticks.Hope this helps.Dan

Hi guys,

I new to this upholstery thing and have been trying to do some practice panels. I bought some white closed cell foam, called Ethafoam, I think, at a plastic shop to use, but when I glue vinyl on top of it, it looks terrible. Have I got the wrong foam (they'd never heard the name Volara), or is it just because I'm using cheap vinyl to practice with? If I just brush glue into the foam cuts, will that work? I've got to get this right before I do some serious work.

I use Landau Top and trim adhesive on headlingers and trim. I just put it in my spray gun and spray both pieces to be glued. Cleans up with lacquer thinner. It costs about $14.00 a gallon and you can get it at most upholstery supply companies.
