Hello, I am interested in your StyroGoo for a project involving expanded polystyrene (EPS). I want to be certain that StyroGoo will not dissolve or otherwise cause damage to the EPS. The reason I am asking and seeking additional confirmation is because, in your item description, you mention that StyroGoo contains

Styrogoo is made specifically for EPS (the white beaded foam) and XPS (like our Art & Sign Foam, Dow Blueboard, and Owens-Corning Pinkboard foams, and Styrofoam),and it will not dissolve them. We have been using Styrogoo ourselves and have sold thousands of bottles over the past 3 years with no reports of any harm whatsoever to EPS foam. 

You are wise to be cautious, I used some Liquid Nails Foam Safe Glue about 12 years ago. I tested it and in two weeks all was fine. I then glued about 200 feet of foam molding to a building and almost a year later the foam started falling off. Upon inspection I found that the glue had dissolved the foam. There must have been some slow acting solvents that acted on the foam over time.

I did a sample glue joint last night on a 2

EPP, expanded polypropylene, is a closed cell foam so it will take much longer for the glue to dry in the middle where no air gets to it. I think you will need something that has a solvent which dissolves polypropylene to get a 100% bond. The Styrogoo will stick like crazy to just about anything, but it won't chemically bond to the type of foam you are using. I have used Styrogoo to glue closed cell polyethylene and it sticks really well, but I could tear it apart, and had to wait twice as long for it to dry. Applying a thin layer of glue to each side helps it dry faster. 

When you glue Styrofaom, EPS or XPS which are open cell foams, with Styrogoo the foam will tear before the glue lets go.

StyroGoo's tack holds really well at first placement of a piece, and allows me some room to position before it becomes solid. Works way better than tacky glue and I have more working time than hot glue. Josh Greene, NC

To Whom This May Concern:
I have enjoyed working with StyroGoo on a lot of my RC Foam Airplane projects. Compared to Beacon's Foam Tac, it is more economical.
However, since one bottle has lasted me a long time, its viscosity has become a little heavier. Can you tell me which would be better to use to thin it out, alcohol or acetone?
