Silicone based adhesive that works very well on EPP and EPO foams
Full strength is reached in 10-12 hours.
It is crystal clear and cures to a more flexible consistency than CA.
It is, however, not instant bonding like CA and there is no accelerator to speed it’s curing.
To obtain a faster initial bond when bonding two pieces, FOAM-CURE™ can be applied to one piece and after the two are joined, they can then be pulled apart. After letting it air dry for about ten minutes, FOAM-CURE™ will act like a contact cement when the parts are rejoined, resulting in enough tack strength to allow the next steps of assembly.
Works with all foams, and will actually bond most other materials. It will bond wood and plastic to foam, and is a good canopy glue. FOAM-CURE™ does not, however, cure flexible enough to act as a hinge for aircraft control surfaces. Its limitations occur when bonding large areas of two non-porous materials.
Requires exposure to air for drying. If one tried to bond, for example, a half-dollar coin to glass, over 90% of the adhesive would never cure, since the solvent it contains would have no where to evaporate. A small amount of denatured alcohol can be mixed into the Foam-Cure to make it thinner.
BSI adhesives have earned an international reputation of being as good as, if not better than, industrial grade, at a fraction of the cost.
By starting with only the best raw materials and manufacturing processes, BSI produces the highest performing adhesives. BSI’s adhesives never sit in a warehouse under uncontrolled conditions. This results in an unmatched shelf life and consistent performance, which a growing number of makers are taking advantage of.
