    Depends on the type. Liquid Nails makes a glue for foam.

    I use PL caulk tube adhesive to glue polystyrene to aluminium hulls and plywood. No problems yet (8yrs. +)
    I once used LN to build some wood truses. They came apart, so I quit using it. It crystellized. YES, everything was dry, clean, etc.. The faukt was clearly LN. Maybe a bad batch, as I bought a seald case and used no other tubes.

    SamSam,
    That is prob the funniest **** I've seen on a forum like this! You can bet your @$$ I'll be using that somewhere else!
    I did in fact, for the record, google it. I did see that they had a product for foam uses but wasnt sure if that meant all types of foam. I guess it does. Thanks for the replies guys!
