Bob Smith Industries INSTA-CURE™ Glue 1oz & INSTA-SET™ CA Accelerator 2oz
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 CAs cure, they give off a vapor that can irritate the nose and eyes, so be prepared. Thin CAs work very well on balsa since they penetrate into the wood and form more than just a surface bond.
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. INSTA-CURE™ CA is used to bond tight fitting parts. Hold the parts together (sometimes using masking tape), then apply the INSTA-CURE™ along the joints. The CA will penetrate deep into the joints. Bonding will occur in 1-3 seconds. Excess cured CA can be removed from surfaces like ceramics by rubbing with a paper towel soaked in UN-CURE™. Full strength is reached in two hours. Wipe the nozzle clean before replacing screw-on top. Refrigerate to extend shelf life. Cured CA is stable from -40 to 220º 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.
