Goop instead of Welders?

Hello everyone!

The kit i'm building calls for the use of Welders adhesive and it is not locally available (to my knowledge). However I do have Goop. Can I use Goop instead? I have heard they are basically the same thing, but I have no idea. Thank you for your time!

Use Welders or Foam Tac. Goop is not the same thing.

BTW, someone here reported finding Welders at AutoZone recently. Some have reported finding Welders at Lowes, but I've never had any luck with them. Typically, I just buy on-line.

go to walmart and get QuickGrip, IMO and others it beats Welders, QG never yellows like welders does and dries faster, and is less rubbery, but still flexible

Used goop on lots of EPP models and works great. Stays flexable, doesn't yellow or get brittle over time like welders. It takes longer to setup but worth it to me.

I have had great luck with Hotglue on my EPP planes also.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I went to Lowes and AutoZone and still no Welders. SI went ahead and picked some QuickGrip. Thanks for the suggestion Spastic

Goop is strong but a much slower cure and it runs if you use much. E6000 is the same but you can get it in a tube with a small nozzle.

I know that everyone has their opinion on what is best. For me, I use Goop on all of my EPP builds. It never yellows, or gets brittle like Welder, and is super strong. I put a thin layer on all the stress and break points of my foamies and it is like body armor. No matter how bad the crash the plane won't break where there is Goop. The only thing about it is you have to work fast with it because it will "skin over" fairly quick.

I use Household Goop on all of my EPP planes. But it will eat right through Depron.

Tack with foam safe CA, the fill with Goop or hotglue for me too. Goop is nice for those areas that flex is needed and hotglue where I wish it to be more stiff.

I put together my first EPP. I used E6000 for spar and all else I used my wife's mini hot glue gun. I don't see to many people giving thumbs up for hot glue, but maybe someone with more experience will tell me why. The plus side, to me was it set up fast and it flexible.

Ive been using hot glue on all my build, the only issue ive run into is that the motor mounts get loose when the motor heats up, so those i use epoxy, and that the rest of if gets soft in hot air either outside or in my car, but its not catastrophic.

hot glue is heavy, i like it for servo install because with a dab of alcohol it releases .. for field repair quick grip is fast enough, with the sun out it's very fast, 5min or so..
motor mounts should have some tape to help out, standard practice look close you can see the tape
