Oracover Heat Activated Adhesive can be used to improve adhesion of iron-on products, as well as being a primer for Oracover films on wooden surfaces.
Depending on the surface, 1-2 layers should be applied. Before ironing the adhesive has to dry thoroughly. Ideal quantity to be applied (dry): 21 g/m². Not suitable for surfaces which are not solvent proof.
Oracover produces a suitable adhesive for every field of application, for instance to prepare wooden surfaces for easy ironing: The liquid adhesives soak into the wood, gluing unstable fibres closely and permanently to the surface. This prevents the fibres tearing off under stress and the covering coming off, which is the usual cause of wrinkles. Torn-off fibres will enter the adhesive layer of covering films, thus preventing proper adhesion. Also additional ironing does not really solve the problem: the covering film shrinks all right, but the glue layer which has become mixed with torn-off fibres can no longer properly adhere to the surface.
Our liquid adhesives are an exact match to the adhesives used for our covering films. Accordingly, always choose the adhesive appropriate for the covering film you are using. The consumption of adhesive is c. 21g/sqm, relating to dry matter. It is important to let the adhesive dry completely before covering, to prevent incompletely evaporated solvents to evaporate during ironing, thereby causing bubbles. In case our adhesives have dried out a bit in an opened tin, you can restore the original viscosity by adding the appropriate thinner.
