well it looks like the best I have seen... it might be a bit difficult to get ahold of ... as it is new .. and a bit specialized.. you'll not believe what I saw it do... samples stuck strong to plastics....glass.... and every other material as well... and saw it streach 5 times it's length... they pulled a hunk of it more than a foot... and it never really broke even then... good to 140* F... and unbelievabe as it seems... OK for application to wet surfaces... and seems to be available in 100's of colors.. Quad Max

I've never tried that one. Looks like it would be very useful.

Gordon, let me get this correct, you are using this adhesive to create garden art projects or to winterize your house?

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

they make a clear ... one named ..... invisible .. it works great also... my favorite local one is a home depot item... called roof and flashing PL S30.. it is slow to cure ... a day or more.. it is black... because it is a flashing compound it has great stretching to keep it stuck to different materials ... it doesn't get brittle... good outside summer or winter.. it is a polyurethane item... not a silicone

So you are saying the clear..

Look for Quad Max ( brand ) and the product is called "Invisible"

Or is it OSI.
And the product is QuadMax - and it is invisible?

Hi Vic...well... we're still in the fight.. so I guess that's winning... just a bit on the bored side ...Spring will help a lot... at least it will take all the time I let it .. and then some..I've a project to make everything beautiful again here ..refurbishing all the finishes of years ago.. on everything... throwing things away by the bag full.. looking to get the garden in and settled and be able to drive down to Naples FL for the second International Plumeria conference... mid May ...
How are you doing there...what are you up to??
Rosie..the company is called OSI...Quad invisible is the clear product.. it's pretty clear.. I have no trouble reading through 1 1/2 " of it in the clear tube..I did see some of the OSI line at home depot..their more basic colors... Invisible is fine..I used to to attach a bunch of 6" x 12" glass panes that had been faux stained glass together on a sheet of acrylic to make a big stained glass panel... depicting the clients family history in Hungary as book sellers from the 1600's walking the hills to villages selling and repairing books..woops/ picture in next post

Oh that is beautiful. You must have a lot of confidence in the product to use it on that piece.

Is that going in an actual window exposed to elements or used indoors?

Gordon, please post photo's of your garden when you get it all set up. For those of you that are new to Garden Art, Gordon has the most beautiful rooftop garden right in the middle of a concrete jungle. It's gorgeous!

I'm doing good. Getting older but not much wiser Green Grin!

Have a lovely and fun trip to Florida!
