I have an infrared lamp array that is used to bake car hoods after painting, can I use it on AAT1132 to cure faster and speed up drying process?

The use of the heat lamp to slightly raise the temperature around the applied 1132 could expedite the drying of the adhesive somewhat. However, I would warn that excessive temperature, and/or duration, could cause the backing compound to “crack”. This could weaken the lamination and diminish the longevity of the rug. Only trial and error would confirm the “proof of concept” in using the infrared heat lamp.

Can you machine wash rugs with Instabind on them?

You can machine wash the rugs with Instabind on them, preferably on a gentle cycle.
We recommend that you reinforce the Instabind when installing it by placing glue along the bottom, especially if you are planning to wash the rug it will be going on. This will help the Instabind last.

Latex glue is recommended.

We do recommend that you just clean your rugs with Instabind; however, this answer  is based on other customers’ experiences. Bond has not tested washing Instabind.

Will the Long orange Instabind Glue gun nozzle fit my glue gun?

Answer: The Long nozzle tip used for Instabind applications will fit any standard glue gun that has American threads; the tip should screw on easily where the original tip was located on the glue gun. If for some reason, you cannot get it to work on your glue gun after purchase, it is eligible for return.

Do you offer samples?

Answer: YES. You can find the “ADD SAMPLE TO CART” button within each style of Instabind or carpet binding colors. Shipping is free only for all samples going within the USA.

Do you ship your products Internationally?

Answer: YES. We do ship internationally. We have many customers in Australia, New Zealand & Canada. Unfortunately, due to the VAT taxes, we are currently unable to ship to the UK.
