Laminating extruded polystyrene?
« on: July 24, 2018, 06:26:44 PM »

I've found a source of reasonably priced extruded polystyrene, now after a huge amount of reading I'm still looking for a bit of guidance.


I know I can use Gorilla glue but is that the best option for larger sheets?
How much trouble is the glues expansion?
Does it interfere with a hot wire cutter?


Are there any other options, spray glues or ........?




Thanks All.        Aamcle

I do not know what you are building but, I went to a local Builders Merchants to buy Slab Insulation Foam, when I told the Bloke in the yard what I wanted if for he pointed me to some damaged off cuts for free.

Non of the local merchants including the big chain merchants stock Extruded Polystyrene just boards made from polyisocyanurate which apparently does not cut well with a hot wire.

Then Maybe use a wood Saw.
