Item Description

3M General Trim Adhesive is a clear, high-strength spray adhesive that works great for gluing lightweight headliners and fabrics including cloth-backed flexible vinyl, foam, and insulation. 3M General Trim Adhesive is non-staining and heat and moisture resistant. This is a great glue for adhering headliner material to your bulkhead.

Sailrite has tested and approved 3M General Trim Adhesive for use with any our headliner materials. Use approximately one can per three yards of headliner material.

To Use: Be sure surfaces are clean and dry then select desired spray pattern by turning nozzle. Shake well. Apply two coats of adhesive to each surface, applying the second coat in the opposite direction of the first. Let dry until tacky (1-3 minutes) and press the surfaces to be bonded together using firm, uniform pressure. The manufacturer recommends application when the surface and ambient temperatures are between 60°F and 80°F.

Pro Tip: Do not use 3M General Trim Adhesive to install vinyl automotive tops, heavyweight headliners, or hood silencer pads. Use 3M Super Trim Adhesive for these applications. Clean up over spray with 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner.
