Cyanoacrylates (CA's) have become the adhesives of choice for most hobby and household applications. The bonding occurs by using the very thin layer of moisture present on most surfaces as a catalyst. Bob Smith's INSTA-CURE™ is a highly refined CA with superior freshness and shelf life. INSTA-CURE™ often forms bonds that are stronger than the materials that are being glued together.
INSTA-CURE™ CA has a thin viscosity that wicks deep into joints by capillary action and cures in a matter of a few seconds. Surfaces to be bonded must be tight fitting and should be held together while you apply the CA around the edges of the seam. At the moment CAs cure, they give off a vapor that can irritate the nose and eyes, so be sure to work in a well-ventilated area. Thin CAs work very well on balsa since they penetrate into the wood and form more than just a surface bond. Also recommended for bonding ceramics.
