p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · pelican case question


Hi all.

So I got a pelican case with the foam. I cut everything to fit but now I need to glue the foam to the case so that things wont move (the regular pelican foam, nothing fancy).

I tried to source the pelican reccommended 3M superthingy 77 but it will cost me about 60 (100$) to get it to the UK. I ain't paying that for glue!

So the question to someone who knows would be, can regular UHU glue (the yellow tube) be used for that foam? My worries would be the glue eating the foam or maybe degassing in the long term, damaging the elctronics...

Thanks

I've been using pelicans for years and don't glue in the foam, it was always snug enough on its own.
But I have used some double sticky tape to keep the foam on the lid in place...

I agree with Micky. I have never seen a need to glue the foam in and it makes a mess should you want to change out the foam for a different configuration.

Thanks guys... not the answer I was expecting but helpful nonetheless.

I had to cut a sizable chunk of the foam in order to make room for a couple things. If you remove the couple things then there is a foam-less big gap. The contents could move. Not saying that it will, but that it might. And I don't want it to move. I could use tape, but I want something permanent.

And no, the pelican will not be reconfigured. If at all, I want to glue it to make it more permanent.

so.. has anyone used UHU yellow glue or can recommend a different type of glue that is not 3M, due to the exorbitant cost, that is safe to use with such foams that will not degass and damage electronics?

Thanks

The 3M Super 77 is used by may fly tiers, trout fisherman. Call a couple of your larger fly shops and see if they have the product or an acceptable substitute.

Thank you so much. I didn't know it was used in fly fishing. I just googled using that and voila, just found a super 77 replacement to buy online @uk for a reasonable price!

Thanks!
