Best adhesive to use for gluing Hydrocal castings together

edited April 2015 in Miscellaneous
Please forgive me if I am asking a question that's already been asked! I am (back to) working on a craftsman kit that has Hydrocal walls. What's the best adhesive or glue that you have used?
Any other hydrocal advice is welcome as well! Cheers, Shawn


  • Hydrocal is like wood in many ways. I usually use Canopy glue or just plain old yellow carpenter's glue.

  • If it's like wood then your adhesive needs some "body" to it to slow down absorption, is that the idea? Good to know that you can use carpenter's glue. I'm not a big fan of CA glue especially when it has to be thick to slow absorption.
