3M Foam Fast 74 Spray Adhesive [Orange]
3M Foam Fast 74 Spray Adhesive is an aerosol adhesive used for bonding flexible urethane or latex foam together or for bonding many other materials like wood, metal, glass, fabrics, heavy papers and non-vinyl plastics (it is NOT recommended for bonding vinyl plastics). It is a fast-drying adhesive and its high content of adhesive solids provides high coverage. 3M FoamFast 74 also has good moisture and temperature resistance to help protect bonds. Often used in recreational vehicles (RVs) for upholstery applications. Its volume is 22.6 fluid ounces (its net weight is 16.9 ounces). Made in the U.S.

QUESTION: Does this actually come out orange? I'd like to use this for a costume, so it would need to be clear.
ANSWER: Yes it is orange, so you can see where you have applied it. This is particularly good for foam.

QUESTION: How fast does this product stick?
ANSWER: Foam Fast 74 (orange) is tenacious, rapid and POWERFUL. The bond between two pieces of foam is stronger than the tensile strength of the foam itself - in other words, if you glue two pieces of foam together and try to pull them apart, the foam will rip before the joining point where the 74 is applied. It bonds immediately attaining full strength within minutes. It is NOT repositionable. Make sure you join both target points correctly the first time or a razor knife may be necessary to cut them apart just above the application site.
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
