Select a Super Glue

Selection of a Super Glue depends upon the material being used, and how tight the joint is that needs gluing.

  • Thin - Used for extremely tight joints with no gaps. This Super Glue will actually wick into a joint if applied while the joint is being held firm.
  • Gap Filling - The most common type of Super Glue. Use when the joint surfaces are not perfect, and this glue will "fill" the gaps, providing a tight bond.
  • Thick - Best choice for building plastic models. Can be sanded, carved with a knife or razor blade, and feathered to form a great finish. The thickness will allow you to work in any direction (horizontal, vertical, upside-down).
