    Hiya. Until yesterday I had no problems with Aliphatic glue and I have found it sands down much better than PVA glue This is because PVA seems to be a bit rubbery when trying to sand it. Aliphatic also apparently accepts a stain if required and is supposed to be stronger than P V A.๐Ÿ˜Š

    I have just thought. When I went to buy some pva to build my model, I bought Aliphatic resin if you are not in a hurry for the adhesive to go off. I was offered Super Phatic as well. It is quite โ€˜wateryโ€™ but really good stuff. Got to say, I donโ€™t use the Aliphatic resin.

    Hi, When I was in my teens I used cascomite to build my model boats - I'm now in my seventies! I bought the aliphatic glue earlier this year so it shouldn't have gone off but there doesn't seem to be a 'Use by' date or manufactured date on the bottle. It just says 'Protect from Freezing'. It was manufactured by Deluxe materialus but I bought it from another supplier on the Internet.
    I've used it again today and it seems fine in the lower temperatures today -
    namely 24 degrees C. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I used Cascamite on many model boat builds with my father and also on my own after I left home. I have just thrown a large 2.5kg pot of Cascamite away that had been in the back of my garage for years. I got it from my brother in law who worked in the Gosport Naval Yard. It had a date on the pot of 1980, It had gone hard. I have used Aliphatic Resin over the last couple of years. I am still not sure which one of the glues I prefer. I do still have a lot of the pearl beads and the two part pot that I melt them down in. They are made from animal bones or something. I haven't heard of that Super Phatic I will check that out at the local model shop and see if they have it.

    Wow!! Cascamite!!! I also remember using it for a water proof application, mixing the powder with water. Yes a distinct smell. Also when I was at school, we used to use โ€˜pearlโ€™ beads and heat them up in a pot when gluing wooden joints. Enough!! I am showing my age ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I was recommended using Super Phatic if a quick bond is required (about 15mins if that). I use it all the time now. Got it from Deans Marine, Peterborough

    Without knowing the exact type of glue it is difficult to answer your question. My immediate thought wea cascamite but you mention a bottle which rather rules this out. Most glues have a shelf life and some require you to coat one surface with the glue and the other surface with a setting agent. Many also require that you clamp the two surfaces until set (often 24hrs). As they are water based temperature will play a part but more in respect of the final strength.
    I did Google and found a very informative article on aliphatic glues which may help
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wood_glue
    I recall dad made me a model boat out of plywood (tea chest) and that was glued with cascamite. I can still recognise the smell after all these years and sailed the model for several years.

    I use super โ€˜Phatic! Glue and that is excellent in all temperatures. Not sure if it the same.

    Has anybody had any experience of aliphatic resin glue not setting during hot weather? I thought it would set quicker during this hot weather rather than slower. Do you think that it's strength will be affected? There is no info on the bottle about usage temp range or max storage temperature. Max temp was about 28 degrees C this week. Cheers Duncan
