Default What glue on Foam Board?

Hello Everyone-I just picked up a Sport Mudduck by Mudduck Aviation -it is a box of foam board-what glue do you use for glueing foam board together and I suppose I would use epoxy and tite bond for the wood pieces -thanks

Hi Jim , Foam safe CA would be my first choice since I had great results with it in the past , or any type of "Ambroid" or "gorilla" type glue . I have never seen good results with either epoxy or RTV silicone on foam , so I surely wouldn't try either of those .

I agree Gap Filling foam safe CA will work well but be sure to get a bottle of kicker or it will take a while to set. My favorite glue for foam is the old GWS contact type cement. Don't know where you can get it, or the equivalent of it, but it works better than anything else on foam and even works really well on joining Balsa and Basswood ply to foam.

I use gorrilla glue for foam.
Woodpecker the $#&^ out of the joint surface, light spritz of water and smear a thin layer of glue. Be sure to have the parts clamped securely. When it kicks off the foamy action can separate the surfaces.
Lately I also run a strip of masking tape next to the seam of the parts I putting together and a thin smear of Vaseline on the tape. This makes things a lot cleaner when the glue dries if it foams out.
GG sands easier than CA but not as good as say Sig wood glue.
I also use GG for putting Dubro hinges in for control surfaces. No need for pinning anymore.

Best adhesive I've found for gluing foamboard: Locktite PL300 construction adhesive, and it's waterproof!
