Foam adhesive is a great tool to use when you need to bond two pieces of foam together. The process of applying foam adhesive is fairly easy, but can be challenging if you’ve never tried it before. This blog will explain the process on how you can apply the foam adhesive for your project.

Common Foam Adhesive Uses

Foam adhesive is used in many industries. A lot of people are unaware of its wide range of uses, but it can be found in a variety of applications, such as:

  • Furniture assembly
  • Automobile manufacturing
  • Packaging and shipping products

How to Apply Foam Adhesive: Two Methods

Two methods of applying foam adhesive

There are two different methods for applying foam adhesive: the first is using a foam applicator gun and the second is using a pressure-sensitive adhesive liner.

  • Method 1 – Foam Applicator Gun: This method allows you to apply the adhesive quickly, evenly and consistently over your surface area. In addition to this, it also allows for minimal waste as it will only dispense the amount needed for one use so you don’t end up wasting any product. However, there are some drawbacks such as having to wait until the glue dries before laying down your material (otherwise it will stick right away) and that you need to clean out any left over glue from inside of your gun after each use otherwise it will harden up on you later on which could cause problems when trying to load more adhesive into it next time around.
  • Method 2 – Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Liner: This method uses rolls or sheets of paper coated with a thin layer of pressure sensitive adhesive that can be cut into strips before being applied directly onto smooth surfaces such as glass or metal panels without needing any additional tools other than scissors or knives depending on what type has been purchased by themselves; however there are several disadvantages including having less control over where these adhesives go since they’re not specifically designed for surfaces like wood or plastic which often require precise application techniques depending on what kind of job needs doing before anything else gets done properly afterwards due simply because these applications usually involve multiple layers

Method 1: Using a Foam Applicator Gun

When using a foam applicator gun, you’ll want to make sure that you follow these steps:

  • Load the gun by lining up the nozzles of your adhesive with the openings on either side of your applicator gun.
  • Pump the handle until you hear air pressure and see glue begin to flow into the nozzle.
  • Squeeze firmly at a steady pace as directed in your project instructions. You can also get creative with different patterns: for example, if you’re making a chair cushion, draw lines across it for extra cushioning!

Method 2: Using a Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Liner

Method 2: Using a Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive Liner

You can also use a liner when applying foam adhesive. In this case the liner will serve as both an applicator and the backing for your project. As you can see from the picture below, it’s very similar to Method 1, however instead of using a roller or brush you will apply it with an adhesive gun. This is useful if you are working on small projects that do not require much adhesive or if you don’t have access to any other tools like my previous instructions stated.

This method has some pros and cons compared to Method 1:Pros

  • Takes less time than rolling because there is no need to move around large sheets of material (cutting them down).
