Hi Rob,

Nobody mentioned air curing in terms of Poly adhesives, or it’s use as a gap filler, although gap filling tends to accompany – as a side effect – the foaming nature of the adhesive and not necessarily the intent behind it’s use.  As always, it’s best to use closely fitting  joints, but slight undulations upon internal surfaces will be taken up by the adhesive as it expands/foams.  At times this can prove useful and not a hindrance.


Squeeze out is typically best dealt with immediately or left until the glue has cured for several hours and then sliced away cleanly without attempting to wipe it away prior to setting.  this allows the surplus to expand away from exposed surfaces and can help minimise cleanup problems.
