Default Elmers Probond question

using it to bond balsa to foam, yes the stuff that foams, but, it looks like its full of bubbles, not solid like normal glues, is this normal? I have tried to break off the pieces I glued and they seem to be stuck forever, but just wanting to make sure this is normal.
Thanks

John: Yep that is the way the stuff works. It's messy as H-ll but sticks to wood like crazy. After drying any over spill of foam will have to be ground off. Best Bkf

John: I use it on my electrics. It expands into the wood and foam pores. Once dry forget it. It's not coming apart.

This is great stuff. Just make sure that you have a lot of weights or vacuum bagging as the foaming action tends to push the balsa away from the core.

Also, don't get it on anything you don't want it on. I haven't found a solvent that works on it yet.
