Buying construction materials in Lima/Cusco

Postby rbNW » Fri Aug 31, 2018 8:48 am

I am coming to Peru in early October with a vehicle on a Temporary Import Permit and need to purchase a few items to build a camper on the car.

Can anyone confirm the availability of OSB/plywood, 2x4s and a wood glue product called TiteBond? I cannot for the life of me find this info via internet searches.

You can get OSB boards at ; plywood = "TRIPLAY" , OSB = "Tablero de OSB" or "Plancha de OSB" ... io=BRD_OSB

Titebond looks like as white glue used for wood "cola blanca para madera", you can get it at any hardware store (Ferretería) ask for 1kg de cola blanca para madera. It is also sold as 1 gallon
