- Home > Adhesive Types: Instant Adhesive
SmartAdhesives' instant adhesives (cyanoacrylates) are not your run-of-the-mill "super glue." First, our adhesives are stronger than consumer versions. Second, we optimize them for different performance characteristics. Our product line of instant adhesives includes ones designed for gap-filling, impact resistance, and metal-to-metal or metal-to-rubber bonding. Our instant adhesives are perfect for spot bonding non-porous surfaces, such as metal, plastics, and rubber. They are not recommended for applications requiring solvent or water resistance. (Use epoxies or methacrylates instead.)
All our SmartAdhesives instant adhesives dry transparent, and set between 5 and 60 seconds. Use caution with instant adhesives, as they can quickly bond skin to surfaces and are chemically sensitive to cotton and wool, producing high heat. SmartAdhesives' instant adhesives are all made with extremely high concentrations of active esters for consistent strength and performance.
