HELPFUL HINTS
Poke a hole in applicator tip with a large paper clip to release a more precise line of glue. To cover larger surfaces, snip tip near top.
Apply a small amount of Vaseline to top of dispensing tip to reduce stringing.
Download the MSDS sheet for Fabri-Tac here. Always keep top covered to prevent evaporation. If red tip is lost, just cover the bottle opening with plastic wrap and replace cap to prevent glue from drying out.
Thin with acetone. Do NOT use nail polisher remover as it may discolor glue.Add acetone drop by drop, stirring, until desired consistency is achieved.
Never use fine furniture as a work surface even if protected as the acetone fumes will attack the finish.
Make sure all work surfaces are properly covered when using.
Pre-wash all fabrics to remove sizing before applying glue. Sizing prevents glue from thoroughly penetrating fibers. Some metallic threaded fabrics might require two washings.
Not suitable for applying patches to fabrics as patches have a coating on back that prevents glue from absorbing into the fibers.
Dry clean to remove glue from garments. Depending on fabric and how much glue was used, more than one cleaning may be necessary.
Glue is designed to bond to the top fibers of the fabric and should not be "pushed" into the garment as stiffening will result.
Flammable only when wet and should never be applied near an open flame. Once dried, there is no danger of flammability.
Always use with proper ventilation.
Not suitable for use on Velcro, denier nylon, or very sheer and delicate fabrics where glue might soak through.
Glue dries very fast. Work in small 1-3" areas to prevent glue from drying too rapidly.
If glue separates after washing, garment was not properly pre-washed to remove sizing, glue was allowed to dry before adhering, surface did not allow glue to penetrate fibers.
REMOVING FABRI-TAC FROM FABRICS

The best way to remove FABRI-TAC from most fabrics is by dry cleaning. Sometimes, however, this is not possible. Our loyal customers who have been using and loving Fabri-Tac for years, have suggested the following method. The best advice is to BE PATIENT while doing this process.
How long it will take to effectively remove the glue depends upon how much you are removing.

SUPPLIES YOU’LL NEED
1. Spoon or butter knif
2. Acetone
3. Clean rag
BEFORE STARTING
1. ALWAYS test first on a small, unseen area of the item to ensure that the acetone will not discolor or adversely affect the fabric.
2. NEVER use a dining room table or any finished surface as a work area as acetone will strip off the finish. Cover your work area with plastic or newspaper.
BE CAREFULL!
1. Acetone is a FLAMMABLE solvent and should always be kept away from heat, open flames, lighted cigarettes, and other sources of ignition.
2. Keep acetone out of reach of children.
3. Wear eye protection.
4.
Work in a well ventilated area
REMOVING FABRI-TAC
Step 1:  Remove of much of the dried Fabri-Tac as you can by using your fingernail, a spoon or butter knife.
Step 2:  Wet a small portion of the rag with acetone. Slowly rub the wet rag directly onto the adhesive to be removed. Wet & turn the rag often to keep it from drying out.
Step 3: The wet rag will soften & liquefy the glue. This will be a slow process. Gently peel off any blobs of glue you see and discard.
DO NOT DIP THE GARMENT OR FABRIC INTO THE ACETONE! This will make the glue more difficult to remove and may permanently damage the fabric!
Some individuals may be sensitive to acetone’s smell. If you or anyone near you dislikes the smell, immediately discontinue the removal process
