I sometimes use adhesive velvet lining for lining the bottom of my boxes. Sometimes I use leather instead and have used contact cement to glue the leather to the wood bottom. Contact cement requires applying it to both surfaces.
The adhesive backed felt I use has the adhesive on only one surface and has a peel-off paper backing. This is much easier but I would like to use this type of glue on the leather instead of contact cement.

Does anyone know what type of glue this might be?
The people at the hardware store, Lowes and myself included don’t have a clue.

Thanks!

I think it is not a glue, but a double sticky tape. Like carpet tape, but much thinner. It would be very hard to handle outside of a manufacturing environment. (and quite possibly a handful IN a manufacturing environment!!)

i think it is like a double sided tape as well…when i was playing table tennis i could buy a sheet of double sided sticky for replacing the rubbers on my bat….i would think the same stuff would be ideal for what you want as well…can’t remember what it was called tho

yup, what Paul said. I do know that whatever it is, it sure is sticky

Some contact glues can be applied to only one surface. The catch is that you then need to apply pressure for a period of time, which you needn’t do if you apply that same glue to both surfaces and allow to dry before making contact.

Id say that it would be doubled sided tape also, but i have never seen it sold in anything wider than 6-30mm wide rolls. Maybe you can get wide rolls from a wholesalers.

I think that the stuff in the aerosol can is also a contact adhesive.
