I guess I should stop using it as hair gel then. That might explain my dandruff.

Wow! I never thought of using it for hair gel, man if I had more than 3 hairs left I would try it. And when I get my new teeth I going to see if it really works to whiten them, maybe I can use it to hold my teeth in. Yuk Yuk.... Meanwhile I'll just stick to using it on my planes, got 2 more I'm working on that are almost done. I have built more planes in 3 months than I have in the last 10 years. I really love Foam-Tac it has put the fun back in building planes.

Hows that for double talk !!!

@Eric; Thanks for the MSDS. I was actually quite surprised that it really is very safe and harmless. For anyone not accustom to reading these things, the finer point are that it may cause skin effects if prolonged repeated contact. From my years of dealing with chemicals and always being on top of my suppliers for MSDS documentation, "Skin effects" basically means "Dry skin."

One concern would be to avoid smoking. If your like me, I like to smoke when I tinker, so I guess that will be a no-no while using FT. But I think that would stand for all the glues and epoxies, not just FT.

Hope this info helps anyone else that might be concerned.

ps...This stuff is safer to use than UHUpor

Foam Tac

Hey Stew,

I'm like you I have had to read MSDS doc's also and isn't great about Foam-Tac and how safe it really is. One one my favorite aspects is that I can build for hours and not stink up the shop with that heavy glue smell.

Regards

Hey Petey,

I wish I could come and fly with you one of the best times I had this year was when we went flying after the club breakfast, and having you yell "Foam-Tac" everytime someone crashed their plane!!! It was hilarious almost looked like we were filming a Foam-Tac commercial. Too much fun I hope we can do it again soon.
Talk to you soon.
Eric

Holy heart failure, Batman! Did you just come up with a good idea Eric?

You can always post a video on YouTube, the Foam-Tac website, and your vendors can show it too.... commercials aren't only for TV now-a-days..

A Question For Eric

I am starting a new blucor build today (next month's prize winner ) and will crack open a new bottle of the old formula Fun Tac. My concern using FT is the working time when fitting parts together. Instead of putting FT on one part, joining the parts and pulling them apart then rejoining them how about just putting it on one part, join them together, position in place and leave it alone. Is it that critical to pull the pieces apart or will it cure without doing that?

The pulling apart & re-joining just speeds up the bond (and cure time). If you don't do that, your pieces may slide around and set incorrectly. If you're using a clamp, then it's not an issue.
