Do a bit of searching on older threads here and on BOTB and you'll find some good information on what people like for under suit glues-probably including some commentary on superglue gels

You can imagine you're not the first person to ask

Do you realy have such enorm problems with the search function???
Also it´s absolutly not nesserary when you start a tread here also to start the same tread at the BOTB. This board here lives from members that know exactly what they do so please next time before you start a tread think about it when possible.

Greetings Guido :bat01

Re: Will loctite superglue gel hold latex


Guys please don't get the wrong idea, Guido is not trying to be an ass about this, its just that this is a very common topic and well documented both here and on BOTB.

for instance, yes superglue will work on latex, but with a bit of research you'd would see that most superglues harden and obviously that is not good when dealing with something flexible like latex (lack of flexibility, degradation of the latex due to wear and tear resulting from limited flexibility). there are however flexible varieties out there. most people use a contact adhesive like DAP weldwood, however you also have to be aware that excessive amounts would also leave you with a hard substrate. one of the best options for gluing latex is liquid latex. this requires a degree of patience as it takes a while to dry however a hair dryer would shorten the dry time. you could also do yourself a favor and prep the edges of the armor by sanding it lightly and then clean it with alcohol. this will help to create a mechanical lock.

i haven't attempted any of these as all my suits I've glued personally are all urethane, but I've done the research!

last bit of advice, don't rush things, the last thing you want to do is ruin a perfectly good piece of armor. if someone can help you, get them to help you. plan ahead, get what you need to hold the armor in place while you are gluing it down before you even start

post some pics when you're done, we'd love to see em. achieving the best overall product possible is what we're all about :cheers:

I completely agree with you Sylar, I don't think Guido ment to come off like that, but unfortunatly he really did come off as a little abrasive with the

I'm sure this, and many other things have been covered a million times over; but responding like that is a good way to scare off newer members.

thawk97 said the same thing in another post about the differences about the differnet bat suits, but still managed to say it in a tone that wasn't so rough.

Regardless, I think this fellows question has been answered and maybe will take a second look through the forums to see if something was covered before asking.
