Great alteritive to Welder Adhesive for sure on EPP Foam.
FOAM-TAC’S improved formula now contains UV blockers so that it can be used in the field in direct sunlight without any yellowing or degrading. We’ve also added a special adhesion promoter to make the glue even stronger and more durable than before.
Hands down, Foam-Tac is the best choice for building and repairing all parts of foam planes including motor mounts, control horns and rods, attaching servos, and tacking down wires.
FOAM-TAC offers many advantages over other types of glues that have been used on R/C planes. Since a little Foam-Tac goes a long way, you’ll build plane after plane with one bottle, saving time, money and materials.
- Foam-Tac never yellows or becomes brittle.
- Very low odor, no fumes.
- Dries fast and crystal clear.
- Never foams or expands or needs a kicker.
- Remains flexible. Glue joints flex with the foam, preventing separation from hard impacts.
- Long shelf life –up to 2 years if properly stored away from heat and with white cap replaced. If white cap is lost, remove applicator cap and put a small piece of aluminum foil over the opening and then replace the applicator. Store at room temperature.
- No need to store in the fridge or freezer.
- Works on ALL types of foam including Depron, EPP, EPO, Styrofoam, insulating foam, and even florist’s foam, as well as with balsa wood and carbon fiber.
- Great for waterproofing.

I've heard of this product being very good with all sorts of foam and I decided to give it a try. I used it on EPP foam and I'm pleased with the results. I expect to have future success with the adhesive.
Better than Welder and easier to use
This is my favorite EPP foam glue. Awesome stuff - not cheap but it works very well. Just a heads-up, you'll spend hours getting it off your fingers after you use it.
I built two 43” planes with one bottle no waste got to use very little bit of glue
This glue works very well. It sets up quickly so you can continue to build without waiting a long time It is very strong and stays flexible and clear. Another very nice feature is it is fairly thick so as to not run everywhere, but not so thick as to take forever to get to the spout when you are nearing the bottom of the bottle.
Great product. Works just like welders but in a much better package I think.
I have always been skeptical about any adhesives other than CA for epp foam. This product sets up and holds well. It is stronger than the foam when cured. It is not dangerous or allergy prone like CA.
I used this on my TH fokker tri plane and it was great. Following the directions this stuff bonds up nice and makes for a very strong glue joint. In my opinion a must to put these epp planes together .
Simple put: will not yellow, will harden and release, continues to work for years to come while staying flexible and tough. Fast to setup and hold. Built my Crack Big Beaver in 2 evenings and only because I had to get some sleep before work each day.Simply the best. (Forget Welders, use Foam Tac all the time!). Get extra and fix your other non-EPP foam plans when you have that oops moment.
Sets in 30min, cures in 12hrs, doesn't turn yellow or smell strong, what more can you ask for? I have yet to have my EPP foam break at a glue joint using foam tac.
This glue is the best for a couple reasons. You can build your model a little quicker than you probably would with Welder and it will not turn yellow or become brittle over time.
Works great. Perfect for EPP models with great drying time--not too fast and not too slow. Great container making it less messy to work with compared to Welders (that is also a great adhesive).
