I am getting into using a lot of laminate adhesive and would like to switch over to a water based adhesive but I am nervous about the reliability. Can anyone give me advice either good or bad about what product to use? OSHA regulations and environmental concerns are forcing me to go with water based.

I use 3M's Fastbond 30-NF. It comes in a tan and green that I know of. I have been using this product for a year or two and have great results. I use it just the same as solvent base, although it does seem to go farther. Use a very low nap roller or you will get foam. There is nearly no odor at all with this product eliminating the headaches and complaints. Dry time is about the same as solvent based adhesive. It comes in quarts or gallons.

We used the MP30 water based adhesive at OMSI and Promotional Products for many years to apply laminate to Baltic birch panels to build exhibits. We had almost no failures. It is easy and we sprayed it on.
