GUARANTEED 2-YEAR SHELF LIFE!
MODEL EXPO INSTA-CUREâ ¢ CYANOACRYLATE
INSTA-CUREâ ¢ 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. It works very well on balsa, since it penetrates into the wood and forms more than just a surface bond.
Note: When CAs cure, they give off a vapor that can irritate the nose and eyes, so be prepared.

Cyanoacrylates (CAs) have become the adhesive of choice for most hobby and household applications. High quality CAs such as INSTA-CUREâ ¢, when used properly, form bonds that in many cases are stronger than the material that is being adhered. INSTA-CUREâ ¢ is a highly refined CA which, combined with its freshness, gives a guaranteed 2 year shelf life. CAs are reactive monomers that chemically link (polymerize) when pressed into a thin film. The very thin layer of water moisture present on most surfaces acts as an alkali, or weak base, which is the catalyst that results in bonding; however, the presence of detectable amounts of water usually degrades the performance of CAs.
