Default Glue like (better than ) RTV........

I've been trying several glues to lock components in place. The best available locally seems to be RTV . This is OK but takes a very long time to set and is not so easy to dispense and it smells nasty.
Does anybody know of any other quick setting type that is easy to apply? I found some greenish looking material on a Japanese made product. It held the component very firmly was more film like rather than a mass like RTV.
Any experts on bonding materials on this forum ?
Thanks.
Ashok.

What about hot glue?

Default Thanks.

Hi Peter,
I did consider hotmelt but when I 'glue' many components it will look too 'bulky'. A thinner glue like the 'Shoe Glue' that JasonL mentioned would be better.
That will be rubber based glue and is too rubbery.You will find that the grrenish glue that I spoke about is harder when set. You can't rock the component easily. It is probably based on some solvent because it has small bubbles on the surface when set.

I wonder if J.Carr from Japan would know.
Cheers,
Ashok.

Also crazy glue, or many different permutations of it, could be cosidered. Easy to apply and fast drying, although not flexible at all. Also not working with some components.

Is the greenish stuff perhaps similar to the standard conformal coating for pcbs?

Take care,
Doug

Hi Doug,
Yes the colour of the glue I am talking about is similar to the conformal coating on pcb's. But I guess the colour may vary depending on brand.

I don't want to use RTV and instant type glues are not suitable. The glue must be reasonably quick setting and easily dispensible.
The part must be held firmly - not necessarily 'rock' hard.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
Ashok.

In that case Shoe Glue, or Contact Cement, is probably a good choice.

Take a look at the cyanoacrylate based glues from Locktite. They come in a version vith rubber particles thats filling gaps well and sets fast without being overly flexible or brittle.
