Shoe Goo Glue

I can't find it here in Belgium.
Is it an epoxy glue? What can I compare it with? Do Zap make something like it?
Is it easy to remove?
Thanks.

You might want to see if your local hobby dealer sells Duratrax products.

Not an epoxy- more like a strong rubber cement or a really strong booger like in your avatar . Can be fairly easy to remove with your fingers but stronger than servo tape once dry. Zap makes Zap a Goo.

If you have a Wal-Mart or simial store nearby it will probably be in the sporting goods department - it's original pupose was to repair running shoes - or it may be in the shoe department.

I use GOOP which is similar, made by Eclectic Products Inc of Pineville LA. Good for batteries, body repairs, etc. Found at Home Depot or similar.

Have you ever noticed that Shoo Goo won't stick to the insulation on Deans wire or similar brands, it also won't stick to the plastic tackle box diveder trays.

Thats because the wire coating contains silicone and the divider drawers are made of polyethelene,if you can find a glue to stick to either of these two materials you will be a wealthy man
