Check if the tip of the gun is touching the depron...

Which glue do you use while working with depron? If hot glue what's the wattage of your gun ?

I used my 40W glue gun on depron.
I don't work with depron anymore.
To me, 80w seems to high.
Anyone, correct me if I am wrong.
Once my 40w glue gun leaked on my hand, I got blisters full of pus and second degree burns.

Just checked my gun.
Itís 40 watts.
Meanwhile try some different glue stick. Some are transparent, others are white. About Rs 10-15 each.

@ K K Iyer
Sir,
I don't think it's the glue stick to blame.
It's the wattage that's to be blamed.
@ knvshrm
Are you sure it's depron and not any other type of foam?
Maybe the foam's at fault.

My reason for saying that wattage is at fault is as follows:
I tried to build a plane from thermocole 2-3 years back. The thermocole melted with my 40w hot glue gun.
It was however okay when the gun had been switched off for 10-20 seconds.
Maybe the same goes for depron.
It can handle 40-50 watts but not 80watts.

You could try epoxy. Its a good alternative. Plus, its stronger than hot glue. I use Araldite.

Best solution is to Use 5min epoxy.
Example:  http://www.resinova.com/index.php/products/construction-chemicals/149-bondtite-fast-clear

You can also use CA glue but you have to cover the depron with tape or polyurethane coat.

@ knvshrm has to build a whole plane! Not attach parts to it. Grin
Epoxy is expensive!
Epoxy make the joint brittle. No scope for flexing during a crash. So your whole plane is gone.
And finally, to conclude, Epoxy is higher density. You use extra weight to make the same joint. About 5 grams go extra per tube of epoxy as compared to hot glue sticks [1 glue stick= 8gms while 1 pack of epoxy=13 GM's] while you use almost the same volume

Yes, epoxy is very expensive. I spent more than 250₹ on my first plane just for epoxy. I didn't even use epoxy that much but it's very expensive. I ended up crashing that plane because it was very poorly built and my skills were close to non-existent. Do yourself a favour and avoid epoxy. Shut down your gun for 10-20 seconds and use. You'll face no problems. Usually, guns that powerful have a variable temperature setting.
