  • ZAP - Slo Zap CA Glue, 1oz. [PAAPT20]

    SLO ZAP CA Is called a thick formula. The thicker the formula, the slower the cure time, that’s why we call it SLO ZAP. Although it is thick it is still a liquid and will flow. Penetration into porous materials is very minimal. SLO ZAP is an excellent gap filler and provides extra time when positioning wood parts. In modeling its ideal for laminating wood parts and forming fillets. Because its thick, it will not run, it forms a very clean even fillet around all types of joints. The high cured strength means it works great on higher stress areas.

    VERY HIGH VISCOSITY FORMULA
    SUPER THICK AND SUPER STRONG
    ALLOWS PART POSITIONING FOR APPROXIMATELY 30 TO 40 SECONDS

I've been putting model airplanes together since the age of 3, and in all those years I've seen very few kits that could rival the quality and precise fit of these Stevens AeroModel offerings... The wood is hand-selected, the parts fit could not possibly be any better. The end product is strictly 100 percent top shelf.
