Cant read Chinese? You dont need to.
Walk into any R/C foam plane factory in China and you are sure to find this glue being used to build EPO and EPS models.
The locals just call it "jiao shui", and its medium curing time, clear setting and super strong bond make it the go-to-glue in the Chinese R/C industry.
According to the label, you shouldnt smoke, but it's okay to use an umbrella while applying this glue.

This stuff is great on foam 5* productit worksgoodgreat glue works well on epo.I love the sound of the name:- mucilage! Actually its a french word for glue. Best foam glue I have tried. Can be used in two ways. 1. Glue, place parts together and hold until set. Or 2. Use it like a contact adhesive.It's what they say it is. Strong solvent odor, but not too bad with a little air movement - probably not good for apartment dwellers unless you work under the range hood or with open windows. In an open shop, I hit the fan once or twice to clear the air, but only after large doses like wing mounting or fuse joining. At normal working amounts, like repairs or small seams, the fumes fade before becoming annoying.
It seems not too aggressive on EPS - tried a depron scrap, seemed not to melt the core, but I'd be cautious using it in larger quantities on styrene until it's tested better, but it sure works GREAT on EPP. I built a EPP Giles 202 and a EPP Turbo Beaver. No Cracks here! It seems to shrink and flow 'just right' to give you that factory "machine glued" look and you'll actually rip the foam before it comes loose.
This is replacing my Goop and Welders for plane building, especially the adhesive hungry builds. Ounce for ounce, it's about 1/2 the price, and as strong as (hard to call a winner, but I'd have to put Welders 1st, and maybe 10% behind Goop and CCG "CheapChineseGlue" are in a tie. Factor in the price and extra nice flow out, the CCH wins! Interestingly, it seems to end up a little lighter, even though I felt as though I was a little heavy on the glue, both planes came out right on kit specified weight +- a few grams. I tend to build heavy, and this stuff makes me look good. You would swear my last 2 planes were factory assembled. The combination of self leveling and a "just right" shrink rate add up to great looking strong flexible joints. Joints are a little stiffer than 9lb/cf EPP and are what I'd consider about the perfect trade off between flexibility and outright strength. It is just as annoying to get off your hands as Welders,Goop or CA but that's part of the game. Scraping with a dull blade and a steady pull seems to work best or Acetone does seem to cut it if you want to put your hands in it.. ( I just pick and scrape while waiting for my plane to dry)
This is a great new option for foam builds and repairs. A tube has earned a place in my flight box. It's flyable in about 1/2 hr for repairs, less in warm weather, I'd imagine.
Good Stuff.If you need to stick epo arf kits together this stuff is great ....used on a axn build and a fair few repairs to a poor little cessna....just leave it over night to cure fully ...starts to go off pdq and bits can be handled (with care) in as little as 5 mins ... Cant say what its like on other sorts of foam(see other review) but on epo superb.. ...reçu ce matin... surpris par la taille du tube que la photo ne laisse pas paraitre: 20x3cm ! Pour un poids total de 89g. Donc 75g de colle?
Par contre pas encore d'avis sur cette colle car pas eu le temps de l'essayer...Very good glue for EPP, EPO wood and rubber, PE - Perfect and fast bonding , but sticky to your fingers.glues fast cheap doesnt eat epo
