CA Glue

Maxi-Cure™ extra thick CA

When used with INSTA-SET™, it works better than any putty for modifying or filling voids. It can be carved with a knife or razor blade and sanded and feathered to form a finish indistinguishable from plastic. For gluing to the inside, clothtextured surface of fiberglass, scrape the area to be bonded with a razor blade or coarse sandpaper before using MAXI-CURE™ or any other adhesive.

Works Best On: Soft Wood, Hard Wood, Glass & Metal, Fiberglass, Ceramics, Hard Plastics (fogs clear plastics), Rubber, Laminating and Reinforcing. 

Works Good On: Balsa Wood



Insta-Cure+™  thinner CA

CA for loose fitting joints in which the adhesive must bridge gaps.  For large surface areas, including those with close fitting joints such as laminations. To prevent premature curing, don’t spread the glue into a thin film. Lay down a serpentine bead with about 1" separations on one surface, then assemble the parts, letting the pressure spread the CA out.

Works Best On: Balsa Wood and Soft Wood

Works Good On: Hard Wood, Glass & Metal, Fiberglass, Ceramics, Hard Plastics (fogs clear plastics), Rubber, Laminating, Water-Resistant and Reinforcing




Odorless INSTA-CURE CAs They are non-frosting and take only 2 or 3 seconds longer to bond. Doesn't destroy white foam.Be sure to use accelerrator when gluing foam to foam ( one part has glue and other part has accelerrator) Doesn't destroy white foamBond foam to foamBond to white foam in less than 15 secondsFlexible consistency for better shock absorption.

Works Best On: Rubber and White Foam 

Works Good On: Balsa Wood, Soft Wood, Hard Wood, Glass & Metal, Fiberglass, Ceramics, Hard Plastics, Laminating, Water-Resistant, Reinforcing, CA Hinges



INSTA-SET™ (speeds up curing/drying time)

A catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by, enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. INSTA-SET™ in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with INSTA-SET™ significantly enhances a joint’s strength.

For difficult to bond materials, INSTA-SET™ can be applied to one surface and CA to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. INSTA-SET™ is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam.

Works Best On: Bsi Cyanoacrylates glue




UN-CURE™  ( Ca glue remover )

If parts are bonded incorrectly or your fingers are stuck together, a few drops of UN-CURE™ will dissolve the CA in about a minute. Apply on bonded skin and roll apart fingers. Once stuck, use acetone to clean off softened CA, then wash off with soap and water. Since cured CA is essentially acrylic plastic, anything that will dissolve CA will also soften most plastics. Care must be used, therefore, when using Un-Cure on plastics. Separating plastics parts with a razor saw is usually the best option. Few drops will dissolve CA in about a minute.
