The ever increasing aerodynamic stresses we expect our models to endure means its time for an aerospace grade adhesive product and AeroPoxy is it. AeroPoxy is a thixotropic, slow cure, aerospace grade, 2-part epoxy system. It is the strongest and best gripping adhesive we have found.
The glue gun is very high quality and there are two sizes of auto mix nozzles provided. Just squeeze the trigger and apply as needed.
AeroPoxy is thixotropic - that means that it stays where you put it. It won't run down and puddle at the bottom of your fuselage. AeroPoxy is white - a great color for glue. You can see how much you have applied and it will cover easily with paint. AeroPoxy can be sanded, although you would rarely get it on an outside surface. What AeroPoxy won't do easily is chip off. If you've been a bit messy with it, wipe the excess off before it cures.
AeroPoxy's holding strength to composites such as fiberglass and carbon fiber is due to its formulation and long cure time. We have learned to schedule major gluing sessions at day's end to allow an overnight set. You can tack glue with Zap-a-Gap and apply AeroPoxy when you have time to set the assembly aside. It is still best to glue molded nylon (carbon or glass filled) parts such as hatch latches or door hinges to fiberglass with Zap-a-Gap and then apply AeroPoxy to the perimeter of the part to form a mechanical "trap."
The AeroPoxy glue kit (#9565) contains an applicator gun, 4 short mix nozzles, 2 long mix nozzles and 2 glue cartridges. Also available are replacement glue cartridges (#9566); short nozzle 6pk (#9570); short nozzle 24pk (#9572 ); and long nozzle 2pk (#9568B).
