  Use at room temperature.
  Keep it steady.
3M™ Super 77™ Multipurpose Adhesive works best at room temperature (60°-80°).   A light but thorough coating works best, and two coats are much better than one heavy coat.
  Keep your distance.
 
  Right is right.
Hold the can upright about 6" to 8" from the surface to spray. Spraying too closely can wet the surface and cause puddling, which can extend drying times, weaken the bond, and affect the look of the finished project.   Try to hold the can as upright (vertical) as possible. This will ensure that the adhesive sprays evenly on the surface. Holding the can horizontally, particularly when the can is nearing empty, may cause uneven coverage.
  Protect from overspray.
 
  Start off. Finish off.
Remember to protect surfaces from overspray. Just use an empty cardboard box, mask off surfaces with tape or paper, or cover the work surface with newspaper or other disposable material.   For the most uniform coverage, always start spraying from 2" to 3" off of the project's surface on one side and finish spraying 2" to 3" off of the project's surface on the other side. Be sure to protect surfaces from overspray.
