3M Adhesive Use
3M adhesive use in many application like in sticker paper, in post it paper, and like in envelope, also can use in plastic as glue when the cover is open. 3M adhesive also use in metal sign that can be stick when the cover is opened.

We can just buy this adhesive in adhesive shop normally in paper and stationary shop or in printing shop. Because of this adhesive is use volatile dilution usually use alcohol, this adhesive should be keep in closed can. For fast work use this adhesive can dilute in alcohol then sprayed in paper or other material, but the spray tool should be cleaned perfectly after use, because if dry this adhesive difficult to be cleaned. For cleaning usually dip in alcohol for several minutes and then rinse several time with alcohol too.

On application like on the envelope cover usually after gluing with this adhesive then covered with glassine paper, this paper is not stick with this glue and after dry can be loose but with good properties in the paper sticky and can directly stick to the envelope body.
