Spray Adhesives

Pro Stick has several products out to help with a range of automotive projects.

Pro Stick 55 Multi-Purpose Mist Strap Adhesive quickly creates a heat and water resistant bond. It is great for projects with paper, fabric and wood. The spray comes out as more of a mist so it is good for projects that need general adhesive coverage as opposed to targeted coverage.

Pro Stick 95 Trim Spray Adhesive also creates a quick heat and water resistant bond but is used for more specific projects. This product is great for installing headliners in cars, laminates, speakers, or most materials made of plastic.  The spray comes out  targeted, although the nozzle does have three settings.

Pro Stick 65 Hi-Strength Web Spray Adhesive is great for carpets, foam, laminates, trims, and auto interiors. It has a web spray rather than a mist which is better for heavy duty applications.

Toweling & Wiping Cloths

There are a variety of different automotive towels specially made from cotton fibers to dust and polish in a non-abrasive way. Rymplecloth is a highly absorbent and durable 100% cotton cloth. The wrinkled and crimpled texture traps dust and dirt particles but the soft finish will not scratch fine surfaces. You can find Rymplecloth here.
