Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Well yeah, all that I know. May this be a guide for starters.

This is a list of the most commonly used glue brands on sale.

1. Loctite PL Premium (USA)
2. Gorilla Glue (USA/UK)
3. Elmer's Glue-All MAX (USA/UK/PH)

Tell me if I left out some products.

Cheers m8s

Here is a list of the Bison adhesives: http://www.bison.net/en/products/632-adhesives/

Personally I have never heard of the Bison brand. Does it work as well as the PL Premium 8x?

I don't honestly know, i never got past the single bottle rockets.
But i thought that was what discovery waterrockets (a belgian team) uses.

Hi. I've been using PL Premium 3X for most of my rockets. I just noticed the 8X version (Fast Grab) and I also saw a new Premium Max. Has anyone tried the Premium Max? Is it also a water cure product?

Hi Sebswift,

yes I am currently using Premium Max 8X version (Fast Grab).

I have had some success with this and some failures. The later to do with a poor technique which I have corrected.

It also says it it water cured.

I have also purchased some PL Premium 3X however I haven't tried it yet.

Regards Al

Thanks Al! I may try a comparison of the three types next time I glue up some bottles. Someone may have already done that on this forum - I'll search a bit. The 3X version has worked for me the last few years - my bottles typically fail at the ends - not the middle seam. Cheers - Dave.
