This is brilliant Latex adhesive for backing your rugs. New Zealand Made Product
It is a very thin liquid so it gets right into all the cracks of your yarn if applied generously!
The finish is like a thin, flexible, strong rubber backing for your rug. It also is slightly rubbery/tacky when dry so it can be used as a non slip backing for rugs. It also means less glue is required when folding your edges over because they stick to the adhesive when the adhesive is dry!
We have looked into lots of latex adhesive before deciding on this one.
It has a strong ammonia odor so it is best to use in a ventilated area. It's not toxic just stinky!
