How Strong Is Super Glue & Baking Soda?

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Dec 8, 2021 5:04:29 PM

Cyanoacrylate, commonly known as super glue, is the fastest-drying adhesive available on the commercial market. Valued for its high bonding strength and quick curing speed, cyanoacrylate is incorporated into everything from automotive manufacturing to furniture repair. Sometimes, even the exceptional speed with which cyanoacrylate cures isn't fast enough. Whether you're doing a tricky job that needs a quick adhesive bond or you're just in a hurry, you can get your adhesive to cure even faster using baking soda.

Super Glue Accelerators: Key Considerations & How to Apply Them

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Oct 15, 2021 11:12:33 AM

Super glue accelerators are an effective tool for making super glue applications more convenient and simpler with predictable and repeatable performance results. The primary function of an accelerator (also referred to as cyanoacrylate setters, kicker, boost, blast) is to facilitate extremely fast setting (curing) and bond times, however, it can be utilized to “build” or “mound” a surface to fill gaps and create a “fillet”, improve bonding on porous surfaces like wood, ceramic or foam rubber and used to help mitigate blooming or frosting on your finished assembled item.

All About Cyanoacrylate Prototype Testing Methods

Posted by Mark Tansky on Feb 4, 2021 1:54:54 PM

Cyanoacrylates—commonly referred to as super glue or Krazy Glue—are fast-drying adhesive compounds. They create instant, high-strength bonds between various materials when exposed to moisture, including (but not limited to) metal, plastic, wood, ceramic, and rubber. These characteristics make them ideal for use in many industrial and commercial assembly applications, ranging from aerospace and automotive components to consumer appliances and musical instruments. However, before they are approved for distribution and use, they must be fully tested to verify that they provide the desired performance in the intended application.

Unusual Applications of Cyanoacrylates

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Oct 7, 2020 3:54:52 PM

Cyanoacrylate is the umbrella term for instant adhesives (also known as superglue or power glue). You may recognize popular cyanoacrylate brand names such as PermaBond, Krazy Glue, or Gorilla Glue. Cyanoacrylate is incredibly versatile and has been used for almost 70 years in product assembly throughout a variety of industries, including automotive, medical device manufacturing, electronics, construction, and consumer products. While one may think they’re aware of all the uses of this powerful adhesive, there are some “unconventional” applications of cyanoacrylates we thought would be interesting to share with you.
