Aero Ure-Glue’s urethane base is more expensive, however it is a one step process in most instances, and will out last paint in most cases.

Less expensive than Aero’s Ure-Glue, but 2 coats are recommended to achieve a good finish, so it takesmore time with 2 coats (time is money too) and the cost goes up with the second coat of paint and flock.

Colors Aero Ure-Glue comes in assorted colors to match the flocking needs of decoys. Only basic colors, and only black and while in flat, the rest are gloss.

Finished product

With one coat Aero scratch test with slotted screw driver WON, on both plain glue strip
and flocked glue strip.

Scratched. The plain glue strip scratched & residue came up. On the flocked strip, the flocking and glue came off.
