Hi all, was just wondering if anyone has used this stuff on wood, I thought I would give it a go and see if it's as good as they say...........

i've only used it on diy projects around the house, be sure to read the instructions and get the area damp for it to start going off,

but it really dose stick like sh*t

Thanks for the reply, I think it's one of the same type of expanding glues like sh"one"t, I think it has limited uses for modelling but still handy to have.

they also do a non-foaming white version which also sticks like the proverbial to a blanket and a super glue.

Hi Damien,
   It's a US product and quite new here, this seems to be the stuff that builders use these days for just about every bodge they can imagine, Having said that, it does also have it's uses.
   I found it was very strong when I used it for the motor mount and battery tray on Eileen but you have to clean up the lips that protrude after it sets.
   I have read an article in  "Model Boats" magazine, the chap used super glue (fast curing and medium viscosity) which I think Gorrilla have a version of, perhaps I will give it a go when I get to that stage.

Used it for a temporary repair on a broken gear wheel worked very well so temporary became permanent.
Only used a very small amount. then stored it for about 3 maybe 4 years.
When I tried to use it again useless would not work it had gone off.
So it works fine, is expensive. And the bottle size is far too large for the odd small job it doesn’t come in smaller sizes.
Back to 99p shop super glue tubes.

Yes it foams up but it dose sand back easy enough but on the whole it's a decent glue to use and on wood it dose penetrate and bond very well, haven't tried the superglue yet, honestly it's overpriced when I can pop to locks hardware shop and buy large 151 industrial grade for a £1.

To be fair I used to use the branded exterior wood glues but have found he afaratic glues the best as Long as you don't mind a bit of yellow staining. 

More recently tho I've used a combination of the cheaper 151 wood glues and found those to be just as good as the more expensive brands. Time will tell if they do hold up compared to other brands but I've had a hard time breaking a few joints over the last few months using these.

The thing to do with this glue is to make sure the two surfaces are pressed together really hard and if you have air gaps in the joint it's best to tape over them to restrict what will squeeze out the sides.

It's always best to read the instruction but how many of us don't bother (me included sometimes) and just use it anyway, that's when things go wrong lol!

I used a waterproof wood glue on my first boat the "Fast Patrol Launch" but have now turned towards Aliphatic wood glue and have found it dries a bit quicker and suits me at present.
 I really think it's what ever floats your boat, excuse the pun lol!
