3M Scotch 6225N versus 6225R glue for EPP

I just received some tubes of 3M Scotch 6225R (white cap) glue from eflypower, this is in spite of the advertisement for 6225N showing a picture of a tube with a black cap and stating "Imported from Japan for all RC modellers".

How different are the two versions of glue with EPP? I tried gluing some test pieces of EPP with both types of glue, and I think the 6225N is a little better than the 6225R, but not a lot different. The 6225N I have is very old though.

The black cap version of glue I have is 3M Scotch 6225N, and the white cap version says 6225R on the back.

Black cap is Japan made - good stuff, white cap is Taiwan made and not quite as good.

I have a couple of tubes of 3M Scotch 6225N on order from a different supplier, hopefully this time it will actually be the black cap Japanese version they are advertising. It will be interesting to compare the 6225R with a new tube of 6225N.
