- A multi-purpose adhesive that provides a strong durable bond
- For best adhesion results, brush the application area on the animal, two to three days prior to application using a rubber mitt or brush to remove all loose hair. A light second brush may be required immediately prior to glue application
- Apply glue in a circular patch slightly larger than the device (for quick reference this is the same size as the base of the glue can). Leave glue to become tacky.
NOTE: Always read and follow instructions on the back of the glue can.
How to use spray glue to apply Flashmate heat detector device to animals:
The device is placed 7-10cm below the backbone, behind the hips and forward of the pin bones.
Brush animals three days prior to application to remove loose hair, dried animal waste, dust or other material.
Apply glue in a circular patch slightly larger than the device and thick enough to penetrate/cover the hair. Leave glue for a few minutes to become tacky.
Once you are ready to apply the units*, open the pack and place the lanyard around your neck.
*Don’t open until ready for use.
Peel and stick each Flashmate to the now tacky circular glue patch, pushing down firmly with the fingers.
All units applied during spring moulting must be removed and re-glued after 17-18 days to give the device the best chance of retention. When Flashmate is applied correctly after the spring moulting period, it will stay on the animal very well over a typical AI period (4-6 weeks). For this reason, only loose devices require re-application after 17-18 days.
