Any alternatives to  Gasket Shellac (as suggested in Accordion Revival)for glueing valves?

Bostik extra strong contact adhesive.  Comes in a handy tube, very convenient to use, and from my own direct experience still holding well after 10 years.

I see 2 Bostik Products seem to be available, with labelling as follows:

a) Glu and Fix - Contact Adhesive – Clear - Extra Strong – Only From Bostik (Tube is white and orange)

b) Bostik Contact - Extra Strong Adhesive (Tube is red and yellow)

Anyone know:

Are they the same product in different packaging?

Has Glu and Fix replaced the original Bostik branding?

Is Glu and Fix a lower grade consumer product? – I kind of suspect this as it is more widely available. In the UK for example it can be found in Tesco’s.

Thanks
Andy

They are two different products.  The Contact adhesive can usually be found at diy stores, I think I got my last one from Halfiords. The general purpose clear adhesive is not so good on metal.

Another vote from me for Bostik extra strong contact adhesive, based on Theo's recommendation to me a couple of years ago. I don't personally have 10 years experience to go on, but valves which I have replaced so far show no signs of falling off and hopefully they will last the decade and beyond.

And another vote from me. Emmanuel Pariselle uses it.....but he may have nicked the tube from Theo  8)

If you are in the US Barge contact cement works well.

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Yes -  it's pretty much the same stuff as Bostik Extra Strong Contact Adhesive.

Could it be that Bostik are rebadging some of these products?
I recently purchased "Glu & Fix All Purpose" ( pink and white tube) in a multi coloured  carton that conversely read "All Purpose Extra Strong Adhesive" - it is contact adhesive that smells and behaves  just like the old stuff.
I see that some retailers are offering two types of "Glu&Fix" allegedly for use on hard and soft plastic.
Could it be that the more varieties you offer the more customers you attract?
