The superpowers of super glue gel

Artificial Content Title -- to be hidden

Broken toy? Shattered glass? Cracked plastic? Whatever the problem, super glue gel can fix it. Find out why Loctite super glue gel is a DIY essential, perfect for making quick repairs at home.

How to use super glue gel

Super glue gel is an extremely strong adhesive made from cyanoacrylate gel. It is ideal for all kinds of materials and objects, but always double-check the product instructions before use and make sure that it’s suitable for your particular project. Every super glue has different properties – some are waterproof, for example, while others have a special non-drip formula or other features, making them especially suited for certain kinds of jobs.

When you’re sure that you’ve chosen the right gel type super glue, here’s what you do next.

  1. Protect your skin. Wear gloves to avoid getting glue on your skin.
  2. Apply the glue. Apply a small, even amount to each surface.
  3. Press the surfaces together firmly. If necessary, keep the surfaces pressed together using a clamp, or weigh them down using a heavy object such as a book.
  4. Wait for the glue to cure. Remember that just because the glue seems dry, it doesn’t mean the object is ready to use. Check the manufacturer’s instructions for the full cure time, and avoid using the object until the glue is cured.
