Just goes to show that the original is sometimes the best! And it's as closest to waterproof as you will ever get.

Portside II is right, it isn't listed on the Screwfix Website.

It is advertised here though: http://www.tool-up.co.uk/shop/diy/CAS125G.html

cheers Bob  i will be calling into my local for a tub (thats the screwfix shop) ,from what i have read this stuff is good not only as a sealer /waterproofer  but as an adhesive too .
just one thing what is the cure time or is that dependant on the viscossity (how thick you make it).

Cascamite/Extramite is an adhesive and can be obtained from the following:

Hi daz.....mix with water to a thick cream consistency and stick bits with it ! cure time about 45 mins but depends how thick you make it ...needs extra time to fully harden......I have a telectra launch i built in the 60's using cascamite and every glue joint is still good, and that includes getting wet and origionaly diesel fuel.....so its pretty good stuff.......problem is does not like being left on shelf in shed and getting frosted  so keep container tight and warm

  Well DJ I have a Sea Hornet built in the 50s' using cascomite and is still strong -so there! Seriously though Daddy found
  that the old brown Fish glue CROID didn't work (come on wrinkleys get the memory cells working) and had to rebuild
  our ADAMCRAFT Seaplane tender (think again) due to it rekitting itself,  -water soluble glue don't work!!!!!
  Another tip with casco is to mix a small quantity of METHS in the mix, no, I didn't miss my gob when I was drinking it,
  it breaks the air bubbles down, another source of weakening the joint, that one given by an ex RAF airframe mech.
  probably didn't know what he was talking about, I think he worked on wooden airframes? Another one for the resin
  brigade is that on toy glider fuselages, instead of using glass matt over balsa i have used NYLON, in the event of a
  conflagration with Firma terra - quite often - not  only did it keep all the bits together, but it didn't split.  It takes a
  bit longer to fiddle with putting on but I found it worth it.

Hi circlip.....also in the 50"s or 60"s i cant remember which for sure (its age you know)....do you remember another glue called aerolite 306 ( i think)...could never make it work.....probably me....It does look as though screwfix are clearing out their stocks and not stocking it anymore , its not in their new catologue...probably worth stocking up on it at 7.99 for a 1.5 kg tub...beats humbrols price by a long way.

    Certainly do DJ, also remember the stuffing I got from Dad for bringing that home from Modeldrome in town
    on a saturday shopping trip with Mum, - should have been said Cascomite. It just shows what a pair of sad old
    b3ggers we are remembering glues of the 50's, and NO the rest of you out there, we didn't buy it to sniff,
    it was too dammed expensive to waste. Aerolite was another throw back from the WW2 era, Think it may
    have been developed for gluing Mosquito's back together, no doubt someone will correct me.

Hmmmm see what happens when you retire, they change things behind your back and 40 odd years of experience is wasted. :(

Hi all,
       Heres a bit of useless info, as you may have read back somewhere in this string my farther was a cabinet maker, well, he used cascmite (made by Boardon adhesives) but to make it cure faster they added oxalic acid, derived from rhubarb leaves I think, it was also used to bleach Oak to give it an aged look. They soaked the oxalic acid in sacking and layed them on the table tops and bruised the surface by hitting it with chains and the like to push the acid into the surface, tricky little devils.
