Starbond EM-02 Super Fast Thin CA glue is a "wicking type" ethyl cyanoacrylate super glue. This watery-thin, instant adhesive is commonly used to repair cracks and hairline fractures because of its ability to easily penetrate narrow spaces. Starbond Super Fast Thin CA glue is well suited for strengthening porous, fragile material such as soft wood (balsa), ceramics, unpolished rocks and minerals, and fossil bones. During inlay applications such as turquoise inlays or metal powder inlays, the thin viscosity CA glue penetrates and stabilizes the powder through capillary action. Thin CA glues are often used as a finish by applying several coats, sanding, and then polishing to a high gloss.
Starbond EM-150 Medium CA Glue is a "multi-purpose" ethyl cyanoacrylate super glue that possesses an oil-like viscosity. This means that the medium viscosity instant adhesive has properties of both the thin CA and thick CA. Starbond EM-150 Medium CA glue is able to penetrate narrow slots, bond closely-fitted parts, fill small gaps, and create high gloss wooden finishes. Similar to the thinner CAs, the medium CA glue is also used as a finish by applying several coats, sanding, and then polishing to a high gloss.Starbond EM-150 Medium CA is used in hobby as tire glue, pen turning for gluing pen blanks, woodturning for wood repairs, and in quick home repairs.
Starbond EM-2000 Thick CA glue is an ethyl cyanoacrylate super glue known as the "gap filler". This thick CA adhesive has a high viscosity that gives it strong bonding capabilities and allows easy filling of large voids and gaps. Each drop of Starbond EM-2000 Thick CA glue remains stationary even when applied on downward sloping surfaces. The Starbond EM-2000 Thick CA glue is specially formulated to have an extended curing time to lengthen positioning time for more precise bonding. Depending on the working material, bonding time may exceed more than two minutes. In all such instances, Starbond Accelerator is recommended to speed up bonding time.
Starbond KE-150 Black Medium CA glue is a rubber-toughened, medium super glue that dries jet black in color. The black superglue is ideal for hiding imperfections, filling dark voids, and accenting specific areas in your projects. Starbond KE-150 Black Medium CA glue can also penetrate narrow slots, bond closely-fitted parts, quickly repair material, and be sanded down and polished to a high gloss finish. Starbond KE-150 Black Medium CA glue is commonly used in hobby for RC car tires, woodturning for inlays and spalted wood.
It is important to keep in mind that the colored CAs have an extended bonding time due to the added rubber compound. Although bonding time is generally 30-60 seconds, it can take much longer to dry when larger volumes of the adhesive is applied. For these instances, use of Starbond Accelerator is highly recommended.
