      WBG for humid climate?

      Hey,

      I'd like to get people's suggestions for WBG that works well even in humid climates. (By humid I mean above 60%.)

      (I've learned the hard way that e.g. Revolution No. 3 becomes near unusable with humidity above 60-65% (and works much, much better below 45% or so.) With tricks and patience (being on the lookout for drier days) I've managed to make use of the Rev no 3 I had. But I'm out of glue and would like to move to something more appropriate for my local climate..)

      Thanks!

      do you mean shortening the drying time? if it is all about that you can just use an electric hair fan.

      i heard one of the best, if not the best, glues you can get is the nittaku finezip.

      it is often used in china and around where it is subtropical climate. if it is working for them, it should be fine for your desires too.

      FineZip does a great job, even keeps heavily boosted rubbers on the blade.
