newbie

glue

hello!

 

I went to Canadian tire yesterday and asked for solvent based glue...They sold me Contact Cement from LePage , I also bought contact cement cleaner/thinner from Lepage. Will this product work on latex properly? If not...any suggestions of products that I could find in Canada? THX!

I would advise that you give it a try and see what happens.  It can\'t hurt.  If you have some scrap latex lying around use it on a piece, give it a full 24 hours to cure, and see what kind of strength you get from it. 

Remember, you want to use a flat seam and not a simple edge seam.  Check out the video here if you need clarification:  www.mjtrends.com/tutorial,How-to-make-a-basic-latex-seam.  Also, mjtrends does ship to Canada if you would like to purchase our latex adhesive here:  http://www.mjtrends.com/categories-Adhesive,Notions.

Best of luck!

Contact Cement terrible at bonding latex together,  use rubber cement diluted with contact cement thinner.  Brush on seam let dry.  then brush on a second time and let dry then press seams together. 

The edges will roll up when you apply the glue,  once it\'s dried it will relax enough to work with.

I am trying to make a dress with fairly complex seams and wavey contours. Would the gluing a complex seam be the same as a straight seem? If so, what are the differences? What would make it easier? Also, i am wanting to put corset type lacing on the back of it. How would i reinforce the latex to avoid tearing? Thank you for any help!
