Default Liquid Nail Questions

Hello:

Have heard about, but have never used the Macco Liquid Nail
product.

How does this product compare to, e.g., an epoxy ?

Where would it be preferable to an epoxy ?

Does it set up hard, or semi-flexible ?

Pros and cons, etc. ?

Thanks,
Bob

There are two kinds (that I know of) one sets up HARD and the other
keeps a bit of flex. I have used the kind with a bit of flex to do
upholstery (carpet) work in various vehicles and the hard kind to do
miscl wood trim in areas I didn't want nail holes. Good stuff.

Which one? They have many, many different products (see
www.liquidnails.com).

Their web site covers the details quite well, including recommended usage
(and limitations) of each product.

Different products for different uses. Eposy is a two part chemical, LN is
one part.

Construction, rough surfaces

Depends on the type.



Pros and cons, etc. ?


Depends on the application. LN is a mostly construction product, good for
paneling, framing, furring strips, flooring, etc. Epoxy is a more precise
product but there are many variations also. It generally applies thinner,
has some gap filling properties.
