Insert/adhesive zipper: Apply Solv latex glue to the fabric of the zipper well, and then let it dry, here after the latex glue edges (where the zipper should come) strengthen by gluing a strip of latex on it, then glue the zipper on it, and then again a strip of latex on glue (sandwichen).
Always use nickel-free and copper-free zippers, see our shop for plastic zippers.
General glue instruction: Remove the talcum powder from the glue edges, then roughen the edges slightly with very fine sandpaper if necessary (good for a firm adhesion of the latex glue).
Then degrease the latex (adhesive edges) well (latex degreasing is very important!), e.g. with isopropanol-alcohol, or with our special latex degreaser (available in our latex shop).
If you like, fix the latex parts with paper tape (painter's tape), double-sided tape is also useful. Then apply a thin layer of Solvent latex glue or water-based latex glue on both parts, (when using the solvent glue, the latex will curl up), for the thicker latex it is very little, when the glue dries it will straighten the latex edge again (let it dry for approx. 2-5 minutes).
After drying the latex parts firmly press together (a pressure roller works perfectly). Try first with a piece of leftover latex, before you start on the actual piece of work. A good preparation is half the job.
Is the work piece ready and the glue dried, then lightly wash in hand dishwashing detergent such as "Dreft" and treat with e.g. VIVISHINE
We sell 2 types of glue: solvent base and water base.
About our Solv latex glue: This latex glue is superior, dries quickly when you open the bottle of latex glue let stand, (so pay attention), therefore you can also latex glue thinner / degreaser in our latex shop order, it is also a good latex degreaser to the edges of the glue to degrease before you apply the glue.
