3M™ Polystyrene Insulation Adhesive 78 is our high strength, industrial grade spray adhesive with an extended bond time of up to one hour. It is effective for bonding most types of insulation such as fiberglass and expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) onto numerous kinds of materials including plastics, metals, wood, paper substrates and more.

Safe and Easy Insulation Attachment
We designed our 3M™ Polystyrene Insulation Adhesive 78 to be a high-solids, high-coverage formula that is capable of bonding similar and dissimilar surfaces. With the help of an effective lace spray pattern, this adhesive will bond expanded polystyrene foams (EPS) to themselves and other surfaces, including concrete. Plus, it won't dissolve or degrade foam. 3M™ Insulation & Polystyrene 78 Spray Adhesive creates a high temperature resistant bond. With a bonding range of one to 30 minutes, there is sufficient open time to let you position parts.

Customer Reviews
3M™ Polystyrene Insulation Adhesive 78 is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Application tips missing from container Ordered some 3M 78 spray adhesive for a project involving polystyrene. Would like to have been informed that it can come out of the nozzle in a string as well as a rain or cloud. Instructions do not warn that each application has a powerful attraction for each other and can result in an unintended or badly timed bonding between layers. Like contact cement, you only have one chance to get it right. Not having been forewarned, I got an acceptable not a good result. Thankfully I didn’t have to do it again.
