Cyanoacrylate Adhesives and Accessories
Not all cyanoacrylate adhesives are created equal!
High-quality cyanoacrylate adhesives (CAs) used properly, form bonds that in many cases are stronger than the material that is being adhered. MusicMedic has chosen these different formulations for their strength, versatility, purity and long shelf life.
- Insta-Cure Super Thin- Excellent capillary action for penetrating small cracks and tight grained woods. Also great for bonding difficult materials like Sheet Teflon and Teflon heat shrink tubing.
- Insta-Cure+ Gap Filling- Provides sure bonding for parts with a slight gap or porous materials like TechCork and securing soft materials, like Ultrasuede or threads, to avoid fraying.
- Maxi-Cure Extra Thick- The Ultimate in gap filling! The extra thick formula stays where you put it and can be used to mix with plastics or wood shavings for a seamless fill and repair to wood and plastic. It can be filed and sanded once cured.
- Insta-Flex Flexible Thin- Semi-flexible when cured, this thin bodied CA is great for bonding layers of materials together while retaining flexibility- like bonding a layer of Teflon to a cork layer for a quiet, but slippery key joint. Also great for bonding extra thin materials to key feet without losing material softness or flexibility.
Un-Cure CA Remover- allows you to quickly remove super glue. If you’ve tried to remove bumper felts when they’ve been super glued on, you know it’s nearly impossible without some help. There are also situations where a player uses super glue to re-attach a broken solder joint, which is a serious issue because the super glue is toxic when heated, so you must completely remove it before re-soldering. Un-Cure has proven itself helpful in the shop plenty of times, including the time when [name redacted] got their fingers glued together in the great super glue bottle explosion of ’17. We don’t know how it happened, but we were glad we had plenty Un-Cure on hand! Also works quickly to remove lacquer so be careful!
Get control over your glue! Extension tips and applicators help you get the CA to where you need it without making a mess or wasting glue. Made of slippery non-clogging plastics, the Extender Tips- available in long and regular- are designed to attach directly to the nozzle of your favorite CA adhesive to give you extra reach and control. The Non Clog CA Applicator is a squeezable pipette for working with glues and epoxies in larger volumes. Great for precision application of any liquid or gel.
