Isoflex 7 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 13  
OK, so, I'm told that Isoflex (the flexible varnish we always used to use to coat latex weapons to make them tougher) is no longer made, and I certainly couldn't find it in B&Q yesterday...

What are people using as an alternative now? (I need to re-latex a couple of weapons)

Dammit! I wonder why mine didn't have it!

Somebody told me they'd stopped making it, and when I saw there was none at my B&Q I just assumed... I'll keep my eye out...

Thanks Rob!

I seem to recall Alex H telling me that the companies who make isoflex no longer consider it commercially viable and they'd stopped making it...

Damn that and the invention of the energy-saving bulb!!

yup and Simon Morgan also complained of the same thing

I found some in an independent hardware shop in Malvern places like that may have some old stock

Hi Alex!

How's Life??

I managed to hunt down another B&Q that had 2 cans left, so I bought both...

I will be selling one of them off to the highest bidder... I wonder if Mr Morgan would like to make me a sword...

life ? yup still there and almost back to normal!
I think Mr Morgan said something about paying handsomely for any cans of Isoflex - but that was last June!
