What brand of locally available epoxy and/or glue does people use, for building foam/coro planes ?

Do most people prefer epoxy over CA/glue ?

Hi Sai,
I am using this Bond tite for my field work repairing, since it is easily available and give quick bond even on depron or thermocol, i found no issue in damaging of my  material till date. yes when used in heavy quantity in any surface i feel little warm, but no damage to my model.

Sandeep ,
I was talking of Anabond or feviquick eating foam , epoxy in any form is not a problem with foam.

People......... try out stag brand(or 3m or silverbond etc) rubber paste available in hardware stores -it is the paste used for shoe repairs, paste seat covers and mend cycle punctures, costs less than rs 100 per litre and is totally foam safe(epp, depron, eps, xpp, xps, biofoam). you got to apply paste to both surfaces, allow to dry for close to 5 mins and then bond together with little pressure and u have a joint for a lifetime but making alterations is next to impossible Smiley

Dear Mr Rao, I have been using rubber glue for quite some time on foam with excellent results. This here is my latest foamie, a Redbull Edge 540 Profile made of epp, stuck with stag brand rubber paste. Seems like it aint eaten yet! Do try it out........... I'm sure u'd luv it for its price

Rubber based glue like fevibond is a no-no on thermocole at least. Not sure about other types of foam. Never tried on depron at least. I'm using elmers wood glue for depron as no CA is available, dries fast and bonds "soon" enough. The CA i have makes craters in the depron.

Any place in bangalore for foam safe CA??

Hi all ,
One glue that works great when used carefully is hot Glue .
You can get a glue gun for around Rs 250 - 300 and then only glues sticks .
It stick just about any thing Coro , foam etc ( but the heat can melt some foams ) , the other thing is there should be no contact between the gun nozzle and foam.

I have used it with CORO , Bio Foam , Double side laminated foam and EPP. In fact on the PIAGET I removed the landing gear and replaced it with EPP SKIDS.

Guys,

I found 5min epoxy in local stores these days. Can be found at any paints/ Hardware shops.

New "ARALDITE - Klear" and "FEVITITE-RAPID". So Many versions are there in both brands. But only these things are 5Min Epoxies.

Here are some quick pics from my computer table!

Try Pidilite's(the company which manufactures fevicol)Fabric glue ........
Its foam safe and dries faster than fevicol......also it makes more stronger bond than fevicol.....

I am Gr8



 use a twin sided tape for that purpose
they are available easily in the market and are cheap
reinforce the bond using tape

or

put a tape on the surface to be joined and glue the tape together using ca [i.e. indirectly glue the parts as ca when comes with contact of thermocol eats it away

or

get a  foam safe glue from any lhs/hk
