Manual Spray Technology Training

Despite the ongoing interest in automation, manual spraying is still the most used and remains a very effective method for applying Intercom. Providing the system is installed correctly, spray guns are set properly, and operators use proven techniques, clients can benefit greatly.

Installation + Maintenance
  • Install an air regulator for each spray gun

  • Install air regulators out of the sprayers' reach.

  • Replace damaged parts of the spray gun.

  • Inspect air hoses and air connections regularly. A 1/4" air leak can cost thousands per year in electricity alone.

  • Clean and maintain the spray gun according to the manufacturers' recommendations.

Spray Gun Settings
  • Minimize fluid volume coming from the spray gun.

  • Control atomization air pressure in relation to adhesive volume.

  • Match the spray gun and settings (nozzle, needle, air cap) with the adhesive. Failure to choose the correct equipment generally results in lower efficiencies and increased adhesive costs through waste and overspray.

Sprayer / User
  • Increase spray gun transfer efficiency or product yield by implementing more consistent spraying techniques.

  • Maintain the proper spraying distance and angle from the substrate.

  • Download the above documents and post in the spray area for reference.

What is Overspray?

In any pneumatic spray application, overspray is an area of concern that should be addressed early on. Fortunately if it does occur, it’s easily remedied through the use of a High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) spray gun and operator training.

When we talk about overspray, we’re referring to any portion of sprayed material that doesn’t land on the target substrate, whether it lands beyond the border of the target substrate, or is dispersed into the air. Overspray results in wasted material, and effects the cleanliness of the spray area, so it’s logical to take the necessary steps to minimize it.

Using the Correct Equipment

Having the correct spray gun is the first, and most important step to take in minimizing overspray. INTERCOM HVLP Spray Guns allow spray operators to properly atomize the adhesive using low air pressure settings (most spray gun manufacturers offer similar HVLP models). Doing so will maximize product yield, eliminate waste, and help to keep the work environment clean.

The second important step is to install an air pressure regulator between your air compressor and each spray gun to prevent spray operators from adjusting atomization air beyond the desired setting.

Causes + Solutions

Once we have the right equipment and a regulator in place, there are a few very simple steps we can take to eliminate overspray and waste. By making simple adjustments to the spray gun settings, and working with the spray operators on basic technique, we can all but eliminate overspray as a concern.

Detailed below are the 4 causes along with solutions for overspray.

Go to: Intercom {Overspray Free} Technology

Air Pressure Too High {Spray Gun Setting}

When using high air pressures a "bounce effect" and "cloud" will be created. INTERCOM is naturally tacky and requires low air pressure for proper atomization.


Reduce Air Pressure

Spray Pattern Too Wide {Spray Gun Setting}

We recommend a narrow spray pattern so the operator can better control the application of adhesive. A wide spray pattern will cause the operator to miss the substrate causing overspray and mess.


Reduce Pattern Width

Incorrect Angle of Spray {Operator Technique}

It is recommended that the spray gun be held perpendicular (at 90 degree angle) to the substrate. As the angle decreases, the adhesive will "ricochet" off or miss the substrate causing overspray.


Spray at 90° Angle

Spraying Too Far From Substrate {Operator Technique}

The spray gun should be held at a distance between 4"-10" (10cm-25cm) from the substrate when applying INTERCOM. As the distance between the spray gun and the substrate increases, so does the width of the spray pattern causing overspray.


Spray Closer to Substrate

Basic Knowledge

  • When looking at the bond strength of adhesives, it is important to differentiate the strength of the bond when the substrates are initially bonded from the strength of the bond after the adhesive has cured - Tack vs. Cure.

  • This page is designed to address the initial bond strength. As we compare the initial bond strength of INTERCOM vs. a solvent based adhesive, it is important to understand tack vs. cure. INTERCOM will tack instantly, while a solvent based adhesive will cure instantly.

  • We find that the instant tack offered by INTERCOM allows for much more versatility and speed in your production and processes when compared to the instant cure of a solvent based adhesive.

Shear Strength

When we refer to shear strength, we refer to the strength of the adhesive bond while attempting to slide 2 parallel bonded substrates past each other. Both INTERCOM and solvent based adhesives offer instant shear strength.

Pull Strength

Pull strength refers to the strength of the bond when pulling the substrates in a direction that is perpendicular to the bonded surface. Both INTERCOM and solvent based adhesives offer instant pull strength.

Peel Strength

Peel strength is determined by the ability of the adhesive to resist separation when a substrate is peeled up from the edge to remove it from the material to which it has been bonded. This is where we find the key difference between INTERCOM and solvent based adhesives. INTERCOM is designed to allow the substrates to be peeled and repositioned while the adhesive is still wet. This will allow the operators to correctly position and reposition the substrates without damaging them, or having to apply more adhesive. This provides numerous advantages that can help with speed, process, and overall quality. Solvent based adhesives do not allow for this. It is again important to note that once INTERCOM has cured, peeling will result in destruction of the substrates.

Unlimited Options

The Intercom line of water based adhesives is available in a variety of standard color options, depending on the formulation. We offer these choices to help our clients fill a specific need in regards to application and process. Some clients like to be able to see the adhesive being applied, want to display the product to end buyers, while others don't.

We also have the capability of producing our products with a custom color if one of our standard options is not ideal for a client’s application.

Things to Consider

Color -

whether a custom color is required for matching a substrate or just as a visual aid, we work closely with each client for a unique result that's repeatable. The client must understand that the color of the product may vary between batches due to variations in color of the underlying raw materials.

Product Volume -

A custom color is best suited for a client who is able to commit to and use 2000kgs or 500 gallons.

Custom Color Requirements
  • Approve and implement the appropriate INTERCOM formulation in a standard color.

  • Determine if the purchase volume fulfills the minimum batch size for a custom color.

  • Evaluate custom color samples of the INTERCOM product.

  • Approve custom color.

  • Place POs in advance as custom colored products are made-to-order and require additional time to schedule production.



No. Our customers enjoy the lowest adhesive cost per bonded part.

2 How long must I wait after spraying, before placing parts together?

No waiting! You can stick the parts together after spraying for immediate bond. It's quite different than water based adhesives from other manufacturers.

3How strong is the INTERCOM ECOSTICK bond?

Strongest in the industry. The bond has been tested at more than twice the strength of traditional solvent based adhesives.

4 Does INTERCOM ECOSTICK contain solvents?

No. INTERCOM ECOSTICK is a water based adhesive that is solvent free.

5 Does INTERCOM ECOSTICK contain ammonia or other Hazardous Air Pollutants?

NO. INTERCOM ECOSTICK does not contain any ammonia or other Hazardous Air Pollutants.
