What glue for foam fender?
« on: February 17, 2018, 11:59:19 AM »


Hi guys.


I've got to the stage of glueing the foam fender on my Model Slipway 1/16 Tamar and I've scoured the forum for the correct glue to use to no avail.


What glue or double sided tape have you used with success?


Cheers

I have just used Gorilla  glue on the foam band on my bumper boat with no issues.

Cheers guys.

I think i'll go with the gorilla glue as the foam one looks more like it's for foam-to-foam.

(Forgot to mention its for foam-to-hull glueing).

How about marine silicone? My motors are held in that way and can only be cut out not pulled out.

Any links to a product mate?  :embarrassed:

(Bought some gorilla glue but after testing a piece it expanded and there was too much seepage).  :((

Whatever you use remember that glue sticks best to a clean surface that it can grab rather than a smooth uncleaned finish.

I used the brown stuff in a 60ml bottle. Didn't realise there were a few types.

Yes, good stuff but 'sets' quite slow I've found.

AND THE WINNING GLUE WAS...........


Gorilla Glue Cyano Gel.


Supposed to be less brittle than regular cyano and it went on a treat. Non-drip and I was able to do 6-10" lengths a time after lightly sanding the paintwork to give it a bit of a key..


Time will tell though... I just hope it doesn't peel off at the lake!   :embarrassed:


Cheers for all the input guys.
