Not tried it on EPP. It's a standard adhesive for styrene foams like Depron. I prefer the white version, though. It doesn't foam as much.

Yes it works quite well but you have to manage the foaming with compression or trim off excess when fully cured.

I am not fond of it for most uses on EPP because it dries rigid. I use gorrilla on depron and the like, but managing the foaming can be a challenge.

I love white gorillea glue. Just remeber the #1 rule: If you think you applied enough glue to the joint... You used too much

Packing tape over the joint helps to control the foaming. It's easily removed after the glue sets.

Or blue painters tape for easier removal after. For EPP I prefer Foam-Tac or similar to maintain flexibility

Nitro Burner, I can supply you with smaller sheets of EPP.

I can custom cut thickness and length and width in #1.3 and #1.9 EPP in white and black and I have a limited supply of black #2.8 right now.
Thicknesses of 3mm - 1" are cut on my slicing machine and anything over 1" is cut with my hot wire CNC (hot wire leaves a thin skin on the surface).

Send me a private message and we can work out the details.
