I posted this a page or two back and got a reply that you don't need to let it set 10 - 20. Then why is it in the instructions on the card? That question was not answered. I like Foam Tac and will follow the revised instructions. It just would have nice to have had better instructions from the start. I am guessing that the first batch sold to Radical RC that has the new formula but on the old purple card still has the 10 - 20 minute instructions also.
Almost every glue i use has different ways to be used and most are not whats printed on the bottle . I use elmers Rubber cement like the foam tac instruction you posted . Sometimes i put GG in a container with water and let it foam before applying . It can be hard to write all the ways to use something on a little package . Experimenting with scraps is something we should all learn and remember to do .
