Hi guys!

Does anybody have any experience to share about good adhesives to use on Styrofoam for signage and decorative columns and mouldings?
Anybody want to share info about how to get the best glossy finishes on styrofoam signs?

I'm starting out so I need a lot of input...

Thx!

I've worked on foam for model airplane wings, Its not quick, but try Gorilla Glue ! it works with water and foams into the foam base and makes it strong. also you can spread it thin surface and cover it with plastic and weight and it will produce a surface and toughness that is hard to beat, and may allow more paints to be used in finishings of even some solvent products. another would of course be good ole tight bond. but not near as good

Boggy,

we use a product called Premierbond P60. I believe it is made by Westech. Its an aerosol or a cannister type spray gun applied. Westechl (http://www.ok2spray.com/PS.html)
