Hi Brian

These are fairly specialised glues. Decent tool shops that cater to the woodworking trade carry them but there aren't a lot of those about. If you get stuck (no pun intended ) then Axminster Power Tool Centre carry pretty much the full range of Titebond glues and do mail order. Try www.axminster.co.uk

Hi Brian,
I have got some called "FastGrab 5 minute PU Wood Adhesive" from a hardware store near me. Its manufactured by a company called Wudcare Products, 61 Mill Street, Cannock, Staffs. Tel: 01543 573374

I got a 500ml bottle for 5.99 which will probably last me forever.

Regards,
Trev

UK source for expanding polyurethane adhesive (PU)

Hi

We've read a lot about this expanding polyurethane adhesive as being especially good for EPP and gap filling in other foamie models. Much searching of the different chains of home improvement shops and superstores has yet to reveal a source for this glue. IIRC it is called Titebond but we have had no luck whatsoever in finding it over on the UK side of the water.

Anybody got any idea of a UK source for this type of adhesive?

cheers

Brian

No in the UK, but I believe Elmer glue's 'Probond' should be available to you. This is a polyurethane glue that expands when it cures - and quite a bit too!

Good luck on the quest!
