Cyanoacrylates (CA) have traditionally been called super glues for their adhesion properties to a wide range of different materials and their effectiveness for unique applications. The Titebond Instant range of CA adhesives covers many different applications; the viscosity and setting times vary according to the chosen product.
The Thin version has a handling time of 5 seconds and a setting time of 3 seconds and is good for running into hairline cracks for repairs and stabilising small sections of timber. The Medium version has a 7 seconds handling time and a setting time of 5 seconds, and would be a more general purpose type of CA glue.
The Thick version has a 10 seconds handling and 8 seconds set time making it ideal for stabilising porous woods and using with MDF and trimming carpentry components.
The Gel has a 30 seconds handling with a 20 seconds set time and has excellent gap filling properties. Again its performance is very good when used with porous materials.-bg
