FAQ: What adhesive do you use for sluice box matting?

Anytime I continuously get the same question, I try to put it up here to make it public.  Gold prospectors are an innovative bunch.  Especially when it comes to building equipment to capture gold.  They are making sluice boxes out of wood, plastic, and metal - right in their garages!  To do this they need the proper parts.  Often, making the sluice box itself can be done out of basic scrap materials found around the woodshed.  When it comes to the other materials to make the sluice box catch gold better, sometimes they have to purchase it from someone like us.

Simple Steps to Build a Sluice Box for Gold - RareGoldNuggets.com

Miner's moss, deep v matting, and low profile matting are common items we are sending out on a daily basis.  But, how to you affix things like deep v matting to a sluice box?  That is a very common question we get here at High Plains Prospectors.

So, I reached out to one of our manufacturers and asked him.  His answer was quick:  3M-90 Spray Adhesive.

 

3M-90 is a spray adhesive that works very well for adhering sluice box matting to aluminum, wood, or, well, really anything.  Just make sure you follow the instructions closely.  

I hope this helps answer the question, "What is the best adhesive for sluice box matting?"
