Bob Smith Industries INSTA-CURE+™ Gap Filling Glue & INSTA-SET™ CA Accelerator
INSTA-CURE+™ is a medium viscosity CA for loose fitting joints in which the adhesive must bridge gaps. Normally, the thicker CA is applied to one surface and then the parts are held tightly together for about 5 to 15 seconds. For large surface areas, including those with close fitting joints such as laminations, INSTA-CURE+™ should also be used. 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.
INSTA-SET™ is 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.
Directions for Insta-Cure+™: Unscrew top from nozzle. For finer applications, use the extender tip. Apply Insta-Cure+™ CA to one side of the parts being joined, then hold them tightly together for 5-15 seconds. For larger bonding areas, apply serpentine beads of the CA with enough spacing to allow for the spreading of the adhesive. INSTA-SET™ accelerator can be sprayed to cure the CA that oozes from joints. Full strength is reached in three hours. Wipe the nozzle clean before replacing screw-on top. Refrigerate to extend shelf life. Cured CA is stable from -40 to 220° F. Soak extender tip in acetone for cleaning.
Directions for INSTA-SET™: After joining parts with cyanoacrylate (CA, super glue), spray the seams with INSTA-SET™ to cure the CA in 8 seconds. A bead of CA can then be applied to the outside and corners of joints before another application of INSTA-SET™ to reinforce their strength. INSTA-SET™ can also be applied to one part (with CA on the other) before joining for difficult to bond materials. INSTA-SET™ is compatible with all surfaces, including clear plastic and all foams. It also is a great cleaning agent for adhesive residue and scuff marks. Store separately from CAs.
