BATES® Glue Release

BATES® Glue Release is a temporary protective coating that prevents glue from adhering to machinery and other surfaces, leading to less labor and equipment down-time for cleaning. BATES Glue Release is applied to machinery in cold gluing operations.


  • Applicator wheels and rolls
  • Clamps and clamp carriers
  • Cold gluing equipment
  • Cold water based glue pots
  • Glue pans
  • Joiners
  • Planer tables
  • Radio frequency glue systems
  • Saw tables
  • Set-up tables
  • Slat conveyors
  • Spray booths
  • Spreaders


  • Temporary barrier coating for cold gluing applications (up to 100°F/37.8°C)
  • Prevents glues, adhesives and resins from adhering to machinery
  • Allows dried glue mess to be easily scraped off
  • Reduces machinery down-time for cleaning
  • Regular application prevents need for harsh cleaning methods
  • Can be used in areas with moving parts or tight tolerances

Surface Preparation

  • Surfaces must be clean and free of contamination. BATES is not a glue remover and will only work when applied to clean equipment.
  • Any glue equipment surface, or equipment exposed to glue drippings, can be protected by BATES.


  • In all applications BATES cures to an oily film and DOES NOT DRY. It is VERY slippery. DO NOT use on floors or walkways.
  • Gluing Equipment
    • Apply BATES using a cloth, brush, sponge or spray bottle. Spread BATES to create a thin uniform film on the surface.
    • Allow BATES to “set” for at least an hour before operation begins; overnight is best.
    • BATES can be used in cold gluing applications up to 100°F/37.8°C.
  • Spray Booths
    • Apply a heavy, uniform film of BATES using a brush, roller or sprayer to all booth surfaces.
    • Allow BATES to “set” for at least four hours before operation begins; overnight is best.

Removal & Reapplication

  • Accumulated glue can be easily scraped off equipment using a putty knife or scraper. Use a wide blade scraper to remove overspray and paint residue in spray booths.
  • In high volume operations, BATES should be reapplied once per day or at the end of each shift.
  • In low volume operations, BATES should be reapplied once per week.
  • In spray booth operations, BATES must be reapplied every time the booth is scraped clean.
  • Cleaning solvents are not needed for the removal of accumulated glue if proper application and removal procedures are followed.

Cleanup & Storage

  • Application equipment can be cleaned using warm soapy water.
  • Securely cover container of BATES to prevent evaporation and deterioration. Stirring may be necessary after long periods of storage.
  • Store BATES in a climate controlled area to prevent freezing. It should be stored at temperatures between 50°F/10°C and 90°F/32.2°C. If BATES freezes, store at room temperature until thawed and stir contents thoroughly before using. DO NOT heat the container of BATES.
