Models glued by acetone-based glue burn better.

Is it true? Let's find out!

*** Warning for children: don't try this at home! ***

At the beginning, we have two identical models, the only difference is the glue used: Kanagom (acetone-based glue) on the left, Herkules (water-based white glue) on the right. Both specimens were left drying for more than a year to exclude any volatile compounds from the equation.

Strict requirements for ventilation, non-flammability and wind protection were met by a crevice under a nearby road bridge, with some metal walls added. Both models were lit up simultaneously by a tea candle (the moment is not photographed because the photographer unfortunately has only two hands) and a quick inferno followed:








What was left?

On the white glue specimen, the only parts that didn't burn completely are the wingtips which fell off, and bottom pieces of wheels which were touching the cold concrete:

While the acetone one left two almost intact front wheels:

Survival of the wheels of specimen 2 can be explained by human error and random factors like the wind, but the rear wheels left the same little unburnt pieces as specimen 3. Random factors in this place are greatly reduced and human error is completely eliminated. So we see that the acetone glue doesn't burn any better than other glues and we can answer the title question easily:

*** BUSTED ***
