Cyanoacrylate Super Glue

Chestnut Products have recently added to their extensive range of wood finishing products the Cyanoacrylate super glues, which they have conducted extensive trails and testing to access the viscosity of the glues. The Chestnut Products Cyanoacrylate Super Glues are supplied in three viscosities, Thick, Medium & Thin

C80025A – Thick: For gap filling

The Thick Cyanoacrylate super glue as a high viscosity and is ideal for use where there are small gaps between the materials being bonded together. It as a slightly slower cure time than the Thin & Medium glues and works well on most materials, this glue is ideal for bonding the brass tubing to the timber blank when pen making and other similar projects.

C80237D – Medium: For multi-purpose use

The Medium Cyanoacrylate super glue as a mid level viscosity again this glue can be used where it is necessary to bond materials allowing any small gaps to be filled. The Medium Cyanoacrylate super glue as a slower cure time which allows for better alignment of parts and works well on most materials, again a very good glue for pen making and similar small projects

C78043M – Thin: For capillary action

The Thin Cyanoacrylate super glue is ideal where there is a fine line to be bonded, due to the thinness, viscosity and the capillary action of this glue, it will run freely ensuring that the surface area to be bonded is completely covered. An ideal glue when repairing or securing loose bark on the natural edge of a bowl etc being turned on the lathe and other similar projects.

I have used these glues myself to see for myself how well they worked compared to other similar glues when making pens on my lathe, I also used the Thin Cyanoacrylate super glue, with its excellent capillary action, on the bark that had come loose and a piece that had broken off, on the edge of a Masur Birch hollow form I was working on. I first ensured that the area was clean and free of dust, then I applied the Thin super glue to the loose piece of bark and applied a piece of masking type to hold it down allowing it to cure, after removing the masking type you couldn’t tell that the bark had come away at all. An excellent product from the Chestnut Products range of wood finishing products
