How to glue foam?
Polyfoam is great for wall insulation,ceilings, facades and balconies. That is why it is used for this purpose very often. However, the question arises: how to glue the foam plastic? For this, different compositions can be used.
If you are in search of economicaloption, then pay attention to the dry mixes. They are inexpensive, while they have high adhesion, provide a reliable and durable fixation of foam to surfaces. The mixtures themselves have a cement base and are diluted immediately before use. Then, using a spatula, they are applied to the entire surface of the foam.
The main advantage of aerosol adhesivesis that they do not need to be prepared before use. They can be applied directly to the surface of the foam, but you will first need to put a balloon with glue in the mounting gun.
You can glue the foam with liquid nails. They are convenient to apply, and they quickly seize. However, it is important to keep in mind that they provide less grip than dry mixes and aerosol adhesives. That is why the foam should be additionally fixed on the dowels.
A reliable fixation of the foam providesfacade adhesive. It is a dry mixture of gray color, it includes a polymeric adhesive mass and codification additives. Before use, the facade adhesive is diluted with water, and then applied to the foam. Then the panels of this material are fixed on the surface, but it is important to do this correctly.
