Velcro with adhesive


DON'T USE IT!

I've used velcro with adhesive in the past but this time, it ended up getting all gooey around the edges and making everything super sticky.

My cape from Napier's Inc. already has velcro sewn onto the front. At the same time, I already added velcro to my DOJ cowl from Gauntlet FX for my previous cape. Problem is they didn't match up. Along with that, my biggest mistake was using velcro with adhesive on my DOJ cowl. Over time... and heat..., the adhesive has slowly melted and the edges of the velcro became gooy sticky. So with some Goo-B-Gone, q-tips and a bit Dawn dish soap, got it all cleaned up.
Now, if you look at the pics closely, you can see where I did add superglue because the adhesive that came on the velcro wasn't strong enough. The superglue is still there it looks like but clean and not sticky. Its just not coming off. So going to let it dry and sand the areas lightly before reapplying new velcro.
So biggest lesson learned is use non-adhesive velcro with superglue.

Re: Velcro with adhesive


Strange thing is I've always used stick back velcro but this time, it just melted and got gooey. No idea why. But no more.

Re: Velcro with adhesive


I agree with Tony 100% The adhesive that comes on Velcro is NASTY. Tony's advice is sound.
