      I’ve read TIP of the WEEK / Rebuilding a Target, By Bill Calkins

      Insulation foam is not bad, but for me and many 3D association far from the best .

      It exhaust while becoming dry and disaggregates quickly

      I rebuild 3D targets from more than 15 years and the best product I fund and use for years is Polyurethane used in the building to stick the tiles

      This product remains flexible and the holes of the arrows are closed thanks to the flexibility of the product . Finally exists several colors

      When I repaint my targets I use acrylic painting

      During winter I pulverize chlorine water 50%, to remove foam due to moisture

      But here in the south of France the largest enemy of the targets 3D is ants

      A little as in Africa animal which kills more men is the mosquito……………..

      Are you talking about the adhesive used to affix the tiles to the floor? I think it’s called mastic.

      Yes this is what I’m talking about

      Languages are fun Mastic in French is a paste to fix glass on wooden Windows ( ! )

      Anyway, this product I and 99% French 3D archers use is not the shippest but gives best results

      I also use it to glue multi pieces 3D targets when too old

      Otherwise, I repair one side, returns the target to let it dry and shoot non-repaired side

      On average 3 to 6 days for drying depending on temperature, and thickness

      You should try , sure for one ( and may be first ) time French archers teach something to their American friends… LoL…. :roll::idea::roll::oops:

      All one has to do is look at history to see the French and English have just a tad few more years at archery than Americans. We can all learn a lot from archery history.

      Can you post a picture of the stuff you use to fix the targets with?
