Look for parabond 250(same stuff but yellow color), RCK does not longer exist, Diamond company sells RCK under a different name and only minimum purchase of 4 gallons($250)

The glue is now Slocum V4117. Just spoke with Glen, it's still his formula, but no longer blue or custom labeled.
My wholesaler sells it by the gallon. No more quarts.

Parabond 250 and my RKC250 formula are not the same, again, don't talk about something you have no idea what you're talking about!!

When I said is the same I meant that serve the same purposes, no that is the same formula, knowing that, my experience with parabond its been amazing, I would recommend to anyone and probably you as well🤣🤣. I understand you are a men of business and want to sell your product, nothing wrong with that, also it's well known that diamond company used parabond for years with no issues🤟. On top of that it's cost less than $20. Much respect to you Sir.

Diamond replaced the use of Parabond with my adhesive because of better results.

I put it in a 1 liter flip-top glass bottle. Easy to shake up, super easy to pour, super easy to reseal. You don't want this stuff to spill on anything. 😐

Why did they stop selling RCK by quarters? Is the 4 gallon the only way to get it?
Because Choice Brands bought Slocum Adhesives, then another company bought Choice Brands. Then, we were told they wasn't going to make my adhesive anymore because it wasn't cost effective. So, in order to keep it in production, we had to agree to making some changes, such as no more quart cans, no more pour spout gallon cans, no more dye, and no more private labeling, OR no more adhesive, so, what do you think I did? What would you have done?

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ping.
Does anyone know a place that sells this to just an average Joe? I'm getting ready to install some cloth on my home table but I've had no luck googling Slocum V4117 for a supplier. They all seem like they only sell to wholesalers.

I'm needing enough for a 7' diamond.

What would you have done?

Dunno the whole story, so you may have tried it.
But to answer your Q: if you actually developed and own the brand and formula, i would have found another, smaller, custom formulator who actually wanted your business. There are a fair number of them out there. My guess is that your product chemistry is "special" because it was formulated for a very specific purpose. But i doubt that the chemistry is special in terms of industrial process. IOW, almost any formulator, or college chem lab could reverse engineer it. from a small sample.

OTOH, how many gallons of pool table cloth adhesive (all brands) is sold in a year?

:)
