Default Elmer's probond

Has anyone used Elmer's probond in their vivariums? The package says it's weatherproof and nontoxic but am wondering if anyone has used it.

The base of this waterfall is made from a foam board. Its 1/4" foam sheets cut to size with a blade and put together with ge1 silicone. I don't have the lable anymore.

Here's what it says in the webpage about the probond:

ProBond Advanced is our strongest, and safest multi-surface glue yet! Whether you are gluing metal to wood, or ceramics to concrete, ProBond Advanced will do the job! Best on stone, metal ceramic, wood, foam, glass and more! Light color for a translucent finished that can be easily painted. 100% weatherproof and performance guaranteed! Clean up: soap & water when glue is wet; scrape & sand when glue is dry. Incredible strength, no foamy mess!

Open Time: 8-10 minutes before clamping

Clamp Time: 12 hours

indoor/Outdoor

AP Non Toxic: YES

Paintable: YES

Stainable: NO

Foaming percent: 0%



Thoughts?

My intuition would be that since 'weatherproof' is not 'waterproof', it may not hold up as well as something that claims to be waterproof. Just an intuition, though.

Is there some reason you wouldn't use something proven (silicone...)?

I was thinking the same thing.

No real reason other than that I had the probond at home already and it holds really, really well, better than silicone in my experience.

I'll stick with silicone. Better safe than sorry

Thanks for the response.

If you do decide to try it, be sure to report back. The hobby always seems to be watching for new viv building materials.

Update: the pieces I had used the probond on have lost their adhesiveness to the glass. I minorly bumped one and it fell off the glass. I don't think it held up to the humidity/wetness very well. Wouldn't recommend using it
