In my own observations it doesn’t seem to stick to glass as well as the regular GS foam. The foam by Loctite is white colored but really strong with good grab on slick surfaces.

I like that stuff too. Particularly when it comes to cutting it - it's denser, you don't get as many big air pockets in awkward places. You can do finer, more precise carving. And it makes "harder rocks" than GS - they are less likely to ding if squeezed, pressed, or dropped as you're crafting. My experience anyway.

Sorry, can't help you - never used it myself. Nowadays I always cover foam with epoxy anyway, so it doesn't matter if the foam is "safe" or not - water isn't going to get to it.

Good luck!

Agreed 100%, that Loctite stuff is super dense. Very nice to carve as well. Now if only they made it in a earth tone color.....

If you use gorrila glue first maby then spray foam over the top it may stick better I can't get great stuff easily in the UK I use sodal spray foam the silicon tends to be the thing that holds it to the glass the most haven't had a problem yet and I like that it is non permanent because if you want to redo it it makes it so you can
