Looks good. Maybe finally found a quick setting gel based flexable glue.

Let me know you thoughts.

Loctite is available at most auto stores like PepBoys, etc.

Did you see the price! Better bring plenty of cash!

$19.20 per tube! Looks like 20 grams, 3/4 of an ounce. Ouch! I don't care how nice it is I will never spend that much for a tube of glue.

Unless you are doing something very serious, the Home Depot Gel is just as good. I use the Loctite 454 when gluing my tires onto my Chrome rims for my RC trucks. $20 for gluing $250 worth of tires and rims isn't that bad.

What is the approx amount of time you have to position the parts before it sets up?

$20 compare it to CA.

CA is expensive too.

Does it dry flexable?

The Gel is not fast setting. You have around 20 seconds before it starts to set-up. It is not flexible. The black toughened CA is more flexible than the 454.

Thank You TopFoam

I am looking for the best
fast setting
clear
gel based
Glue
To use on EPP foam

What is the best one anyone knows of?

So far I have found the best set time is weldwood contact cement, but that dries yellow.

Next is a tie between Quick Grip and GOOP
followed by
3m4693H
OmiStick
E6000
Liquid nails small project
AquaSeal

I have tried quite a bit and still have not found what I am looking for.

The pure definition of gel is that it is not fast setting. You would have to go to a mdium thickness liquid, like 410.
