Which adhesives will survive the metalizing process?


Just wondering if any of you who've had your suits metalized could tell me which adhesives you used that made it through the metalizing process...

According to the company I talked to, some glues/adhesives do not interact well with the solvents in their process.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I think the biggest factor is the primer. You need a 2K primer that has uses a catalyst. You can get this at a auto paint shop supplier. I used the PPG brand and it worked great.

The glue I like best is Zap a Gap (green)
