It's the purple stuff that works (although it does act gooey and a lot comes off with the print). If I could not get Aquanet I try a PEI sheet.

Regarding UHU:

They've changed their formula back in 2015 to a more "green" one. UHU sticks produced after June 2015 don't work as a PLA/ABS adhesive anymore. This has been confirmed by UHU GmbH - they plan to bring a special 3D "Print-Stick" to marked which has basically the old formula. Their PR office didn't release further informations about the when and how.

Just FYI.

When this happens with AQ it will not be good!
