This is similar to a contact cement, the beauty is you don't wait 20 minutes, spread some on push pcs together and pull apart, wait about 1 minute push pcs together and Violla!! it is an all foam friendly adhesive designed for the RC market, it really is a great product for building and repairing all types of foam, wood, plastic, etc.... Try it I think you will like it alot.

What can I use to thin Foam-Tac? Sometimes it gets thick near the end of a bottle.

I have already beaten that horse to death. For some reason they have no interest in distributing to craft stores like Michael's, JoAnns et al even though they sell their other products there. I have both in my small city but no hobby shops within 30 miles.

As mentioned in an earlier post it would be nice to see a vendor like HeadsUpRC carry this since their $2 shipping rates make smaller orders more palatable.

Hi Rickochet,

We are making every effort to supply our products to quality stores to ensure that customers can get our products locally. The new Foam-Tac has just launched and things take time so please be patient and I am sure all will be satisfied, I like things yesterday and sometimes things don't happen nearly as fast as I would like, but believe me, they are happening. As for HeadsUpRc check back with them, they should have Foam-Tac in stock soon.

Thanks for the info Eric. Please don't think I was badgering you in my various posts. My main point was that that not everyone has a local hobby shop and the number of those gets smaller all of the time.

That is great to hear about HeadsUpRc. Jeff runs a great business. I check his website frequently. In the mean time I still have 3 unopened full bottles of the original Foam Tac. BTW does this stuff have a shelf life if unopened? I bought this a year or two back. The cards of glue look normal when I turn them upside down.

Thanks,

Rick

Hey Rick,
No Worries, I just want people to understand it is a huge undertaking bringing a new version of a product to market, not to mention the other newly developed products to go along with Foam-Tac, we are also manufacturing a potting compound for waterproofing electronics that is permanent, a Foam Coating, that when applied adds strength, is very lightweight, and waterproof and leaves a finish on foam that is smooth as glass that you can add scale detail to as it fills in all those holes in EPP, and any other type of foam, and we also have a new multi-prupose adhesive for plastic, wood, metal, almost anything to anything glue, all these specially developed for the RC market. Stay Tuned lots of great new products I know everyone will love.
Thanks,
Eric

Cyclohexane. Good luck trying to source it.

Here is a great tip to keeping it fresh.

This could be why I had some issues with the original Foam-Tac. I just read the back of the original Foam Tac card and it says to, "Spread glue evenly on both sides of material to be bonded. Allow surfaces to air dry for 10 - 20 minutes..." Then when I pressed the surfaces together they bonded immediately and I had no wiggle time and ended up with some misaligned parts.
