1 Oz INSTA-Cure Cyanoacrylate Thin and Fast Curing
-Note that this bottle is a full ounce in size. Most of the Ca's you buy at the store are a fraction of an ounce for just a buck or so less. This is very economical adhesive.
-INSTA-CURE has a water-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 Ca's cure, they give off a vapor that can irritate the nose and eyes, so be prepared. Thin Ca's work very well on balsa since they penetrate into the wood and form more than just a surface bond.
TIP: Use the thin CA to repair cracks in ivory, bone and other fragile handle material that has been stressed. I saved a very expensive piece of mammoth ivory recently by using thin CA to seep into the cracks and strengthen the ivory to nearly full strength. The thin CA wicks into the cracks and crevices and cures in seconds making the material much stronger and it doesn't harm the appearance of the piece at all.
