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.
Cleaning a rug constructed using the AAT-1132 should be using the same processes as cleaning carpet. This could be an extraction type carpet cleaning or “spot cleaning” techniques. Rugs constructed with AAT-1132 should not be placed into washing machines.

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.
All you need to apply Instabind: glue sticks, hot melt glue gun, scissors, & some time.
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.
