3M™ Pressure Sensitive Spray Adhesive 72 is a permanently tacky industrial grade spray adhesive. This unique adhesive features an added blue color and, combined with a variable spray pattern, allows for a precise application. The very long open bond time provides ample time for positioning of substrates even hours after spraying in order to ensure an ideal fit.

Fast Tack, Long Open Time
3M™ Pressure Sensitive Spray Adhesive 72 offers a fast tack and an aggressive hold that bonds plastic, foam padding, carpet backing, polyethylene and polypropylene to many other materials like fiberglass, plastics, particle board, hardwood, steel, concrete and many other materials. This unique adhesive is formulated in a blue color to help with precise application. Using a variable spray pattern helps minimize waste and overspray. With a long open time you have ample time — from hours to days — to position surfaces for an ideal fit while bonding in a dust-free environment.
