Click for larger image

Foam Tac

Latest updated version of this product as of Sept. 2012. Foam-safe glue bonds Depron, EPS, EPP, XPS, EPO, and many other types of foam as well as carbon fiber and wood.

Excellent for building or repairing RC planes.
Does not attack, melt or dissolve foams but holds quickly and cleanly.
Remains flexible and clear once dry, never brittle. Super strong bond is like welding the foam together.
Requires much less glue for a permanent bond than a cyanoacrylate- based glue. Won't glue fingers together.

HELPFUL HINTS
ALWAYS test on scrap materials first to ensure compatibility.
Surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of dust and grease.
Spread glue evenly on both sides of material to be bonded.
Allow surfaces to air dry for 10-20 minutes depending upon size of area being glued.
Press surfaces firmly together.
Maximum bond is achieved within 24 hours or less.
Always replace the flat white cap after each use to prevent product evaporation.
Do not use near any open flame or ignition source. Avoid prolonged breather of vapors. Keep out of reach of children.

This is a clear contact style adhesive. Apply glue to part, touch parts together several times making glue strings/webs if you can. Press parts firnly together. Flying strength is acheived in most. Most joints (depending on size) are flyable in 10 to 20 minutes. Strength of joint continues to improve for 24 hours.

PARBOND 5 Minute 4 Ounce Epoxy - Product Image
Click for larger image

PARBOND 5 Minute 4 Ounce Epoxy

High Quality 5 Minute Epoxy. Use epoxy where a strong non-brittle bond is required. Firewalls, landing gear blocks, wing hold down bolt blocks, fuel proofing and on sensitive materials like foam. 5 minute epoxy is best for quick repairs and new model construction where lots of working time is not required.

Hint! If you mix your epoxy on a flexible surface, like a paper plate you can go back to the mixture a week later and flex it. If it cracks easily then your not getting the portions mixed properly or failing to mix them enough. A good epoxy joint is very strong yet somewhat flexible. If the puddle of glue cracks it means it is hard like glass and not giving you the best qualities of the glue. Using a paper plate flex test is a good way to follow your own progress and improve your glue mixing skills.

Firewalls, landing gear blocks, wing hold down bolt blocks, fuel proofing and on sensitive materials like foam. 30 minute epoxy is best for quick repairs and new model construction where lots of working time is required. Also excellent for wetting out small fiber glass sections.

Hint! Need your joint to cure a little faster? Take a covering heat shrink gun to the joint and warm it up. Be carefull, the heat will at first cause the epoxy to become thinner, it might run out of the joint and make a mess. Also, be warned! A little heat goes a long way and can cause your glue to dry faster than you had planned. You can also preheat the glue before applying to the parts or pre heat the parts.

PARFIX 900 1 Ounce Odorless Foam Safe CA - Product Image
Click for larger image

PARFIX 900 1 Ounce Odorless Foam Safe CA

Foam Compatible, low odor and lower to medium viscosity cyanoacrylate that provides a "low bloom" cure on plastics and other materials.
APPLICATIONS: High performance wicking and bonding of close-fitting parts including: plastic, rubber, metal, wood, leather, fabric and composites to themselves or in various combinations
USEFUL HINTS/NOTES: When using with foam spritz the activator in the air and waft the foam part through the mist. It is recommended only very light applications of accelerator be used. Just a micro dusting of accelerator is all that is needed.

Note, CA adhesives keep a long time in the fridge or freezer. Just be sure to get the glue out an hour or two before you need to open it so it comes up to room temp fully. Buy extra now and lock up the savings.

Mercury MH16 Accelerator 2 OZ - Product Image
Click for larger image

Mercury MH16 Accelerator 2 OZ

DESCRIPTION: Mercury MH16 is a General Activator accellerator. It is ozone friendly and used for normal curing of cyanoacrylates, depositing a correct balance of neutralizing ions on the surface, stimulating attrition for the adhesive and preparing the surface for bonding.

APPLICATIONS: Mercury MH16 is primarily designed for fast cure of thick deposits or for post curing outside the bond line. MH16 prevents absorption of the lower viscosity superglues into porous items. MH16 helps bridge gaps which decrease polymerization time.

Useful Hints: Mercury MH16 can be used to speed cure by brushing or spraying onto the surface, applying drop wise, the superglue and then over spraying to cure fillets such as on wire tacking jobs. Works best under repeated applications rather than one excessively large application.

Useful Hints Foam: When any accelerator is used with foams, it should be misted into the air and one part waved through the mist. Spraying directly onto foam may cause adhesives to cure too quickly with the resulting heat damaging the foam. Although this is our favorite accelerator for foam, it is always reccomended that you test any adhesive or accelerator on a scrap before using on your model. Incompatibilitys may exist that we are not aware of.

Foam Tack Glue by Woodland Scenics

Specially formulated for foam and also effective on wood, cork and Homasote board. Foam Tack Glue is high-tack, non-toxic and water soluble. It dries clear and flexible. Use as a contact cement whenever bonding two large surfaces. 12 fl oz (354mL).

Instructions: Working time 15 minutes, cover surface to be glued, smooth surface adhesion may be improved by sanding before gluing. Permanent Adhesion: Apply glue evenly over both contact surfaces. Let dry until clear, then press surfaces together (max working time, 1 hour). Glue bonds instantly.

We list this as a PVA because that it what it seems like from our senses. I am not certain on that classification. Some use it for foamy construction and thus our main thought in carrying this product.
