Another question about glue and cork

Postby muggins » Mon Oct 17, 2016 3:29 pm

Actually, two questions about glue and cork, because having read several threads on here about this, I'm thoroughly confused ...

1. Am I right in thinking that PVA is no good for sticking cork sheet to plywood therefore I need to buy Copydex for that?

2. And what's my best bet for sticking Peco 00 trackwork to the cork?

Does it have to be cork?

My experience of cork is that it disintegrates over time, and that is why I use closed cell foam.

This material can be glued to plywood using PVA, and flexible track can be glued to it using PVA.

The choice is yours!

Yes, hence the question. Thank you but I found the answer elsewhere.
