    Isn't it basically a generic brand of Resorcinol? I purchased some from ACS last month, but haven't used it yet. I thought I might try it out on some wood laminations rather than use T88. No real reason to NOT use T88 other than I want to try out a different glue -- one that is not weakend by temperature (though I don't think issue iwth explies is much of an issue with wooden airplanes).

    Some Falco builders might know where to obtain aerolite.

    I used to use Aerolite when it was still available and liked it a lot. In Britain it was pretty much the standard. Very strong, but much more brittle than Epoxy adhesives. And if you're sloppy about using rubber gloves, the hardener, though not in any way painful at first, effectively removes the outer layer of your skin after a short while. (It's basically formic acid.)
