Default How do i get away from spray tac

I want to eliminate the use of spray tac on my 5 manual presses. I have read a lot of articles and have tried a few products as well. Haven't really found anything that works well enough. The obvious issues spray tac can cause to the operators and just the mess spray tac makes, have made this a necessity at my shop. If there are any suggestions or proven alternatives, i would love to hear about them.

Exactly as Musterborn stated. 50/50 water....I use Top Bond by CCI.

Except I use a larger container and I use a foam roller brush for paint. Small size of I think 4-5 inches. Works like a charm.

100% the way we do it. Works awesome! Textac is some good shat!

Flashing the water based tac is the key.

I can't believe anyone still uses that spray tack. I've heard shops saying they tried the WB textile adhesive and they didn't like it, and I can't imagine how exactly they applied it for it not to work better than the spray tack.

One of the shops I was a production manger at used a central drum of water base adhesive and ran lines with paint guns at each machine for application. It really worked well for us there. Also I've seen rigs where they use the paint guns with the reservoir built on the guns handle so they can cut down on the lines running over head.

After cleaning the years of spray tac off the most recent press I bought I NEVER hope to see a can again!

YES USE TEX TAC AND DILUTE BY 50%. GRAB A $20 PAINT GUN THE CAR PAINT GUNS THAT OPERATE BY AIR, THEY NEVER CLOG AND SPRAY A NICE FAN. YOU WILL SAVE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS A YEAR ON TAC.

Use the 4" foam roller and a squeeze bottle. The whole idea is to stop spraying tac all over the place.

I've been trying to ween the employees off the spray-tac they love so much, but have you guys had experience w/ using the roll-on glue (textac, top bond, etc) w/ cheap tees (Hanes, Gildan, etc) vs high end tees ( American, Alternative ) where they're super thin tees. The glue seems great for the cheaper heavier tees but seems like the glue is just too strong when using the super lightweight tees. Tips ? Thoughts ? Happy New Year!
