    Bob Smith Maxi-Cure / Insta-Set Accelerator Combo Pack

    $9.95
    Bob Smith Industries has created a unique combo pack that contains a 1 oz. bottle of its extra thick Maxi-Cure CA in a Pocket CA bottle with a 2 oz. spray bottle of its Insta-Set Accelerator and two #304 extender tips. This combo pack is great for those who are carpenters who specialize in a wide variety of wood working projects from picture frames to wood ceiling moldings. Maxi-Cure extra thick CA is the best CA for most plastics, including GE’s Lexan MAXI-CURE is the best choice for plastic model assembly. Maxi-Cure bonds fiberglass, hardwood, metal and rubber better than any other hobby adhesive. Insta-Set Accelerator is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. Insta-Set Accelerator in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Guaranteed Fresh!

  • Bob Smith Foam-Cure Flexible Silicon Foam GlueQuick view

    Bob Smith Foam-Cure Flexible Silicon Foam Glue

    $5.25$6.99
    Bob Smith's FOAM-CURE is a flexible silicone based adhesive that works very well on EPP and EPO types of foams. It is crystal clear and cures to a more flexible consistency than Cyanoacrylate. It is, however, not instant bonding like Cyanoacrylate and takes roughly 15 to 30 minutes to setup. FOAM-CURE works with all foams, and will actually bond most other materials. It will bond wood and plastic to foam, and is a good canopy glue. Its limitations occur when bonding large areas of two non-porous materials. FOAM-CURE requires exposure to air for drying. This product is an ORM-D regulated item and must be shipped by ground. This can equate to longer than anticipated delivery times compared to standard Priority & First Class mail packages.

  • Bob Smith Insta-Set Accelerator for CA GluesQuick view

    Bob Smith Insta-Set Accelerator for CA Glues

    Rated 3.00 out of 5
    $6.40$12.99
    Bob Smith Industries Insta-Set Accelerator for Cyanoacrylate glues is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. Insta-Set in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with Bob Smith's Insta Set Accelerator significantly enhances a joint’s strength. For difficult to bond materials, Insta-Set Accelerator can be applied to one surface and Cyanoacrylates to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. Insta-Set is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam with the exception of granite rock counter tops. BSI-155 (6.75 oz. Aerosol Can) is a Limited / ORM-D product and can only be shipped by ground. This can equate to longer than normal delivery times.  Guaranteed Fresh! Our products don't sit in a warehouse for months, but rather days. We order on a bi-weekly basis from Bob Smith Industries so you are getting some of the freshest product possible!

  • Bob Smith Quick-Cure 5 Minute EpoxyQuick view

    Bob Smith Quik-Cure 5 Minute Epoxy

    $8.99$13.39
    Bob Smith's Quik-Cure 5 min. epoxy cures to a slightly flexible consistency. This lack of brittleness allows it to form a lasting bond in areas subjected to high vibration or stress. Quick-Cure shouldn’t be used in areas that are subject to long-term immersion in water; however, it works fine for the internal structure of wood framed boats. Quik-Cure is Bob Smith Industries only epoxy on which you can apply polyester resins. It can be mixed with microballoons to form a quick setting putty. Items bonded with Quik-Cure can be handled after 15 minutes. Full strength is reached in about 1 hour. Bob Smith's Quik-Cure 5 Minute Epoxy is known to discolor and turn yellow as it ages. Keep this in mind when using it for certain applications. This product is formerly known as Bob Smith's Quick-Cure 5 Minute Epoxy.

  • Bob Smith Insta-Flex+ Flexible CA Super GlueQuick view

    Bob Smith Insta-Flex+ Flexible CA Super Glue

    $9.49
    Bob Smith Industries' Insta-Flex+ clear rubber toughened has similar qualities to its black IC-2000 Tire Glue CA but can be used in applications where you do not want the adhesive to be seen. The carbon component of IC-2000 that gives the CA its black color also contributes to its unsurpassed strength. Since Insta-Fle+ has this carbon removed, its strength is a little less than that of IC-2000, but still superior to standard CA's. When aesthetics are important and a flexible bond is required, Insta-Flex+ is your best choice from Bob Smith Industries. It forms superior bonds to soft urethane and vinyl plastics. Both Insta-Flex and Insta-Flex+ work well when bonding R/C car tires. When a joint has a larger than normal gap, flexible CA's provide superior shock resistant bonds. Guaranteed Fresh! Our products don't sit in a warehouse for months, but rather days. We order on a bi-weekly basis from Bob Smith Industries so you are getting some of the freshest cyanoacrylate possible!

    Bob Smith Maxi-Cure Extra Thick CA Super Glue

    $5.49$20.49
    MAXI-CURE super glue extra thick cyanoacrylate features a thick viscosity and is the best CA for most plastics, including GE’s Lexan and when it comes to plastic modeling assembly, MAXI-CURE is the best choice. When used with INSTA-SET Accelerator, it works better than any putty for modifying or filling voids. It can be carved with a knife or razor blade and sanded and feathered to form a finish indistinguishable from plastic. MAXI-CURE bonds fiberglass, hardwood, metal and rubber better than any other hobby adhesive. For gluing to the inside, cloth-textured surface of fiberglass, scrape the area to be bonded with a razor blade or coarse sandpaper before using MAXI-CURE or any other adhesive. Guaranteed Fresh!

  • Insta-Cure+ Bob Smith IndustriesQuick view

    Bob Smith Insta-Cure+ Medium Thick CA Super Glue

    $5.49$20.49
    Insta-Cure+ super glue cyanoacrylate features a medium thick viscosity compared to its Insta-Cure CA (thin) and Maxi-Cure (thick) counterparts and is designed for loose fitting joints in which the adhesive must bridge gaps. Normally, the thicker CA is applied to one surface and then the parts are held tightly together for about 5 to 15 seconds. For large surface areas, including those with close fitting joints such as laminations, Insta-Cure+ should also be used. Guaranteed Fresh!

  • Bob Smith Insta-Cure Super Thin Gap Filling CA GlueQuick view

    Bob Smith Insta-Cure Super Thin Gap Filling CA Glue

    $5.49$20.49
    Insta-Cure cyanoacrylate glue by Bob Smith Industries features a water-thin viscosity that easily seeps deep into joints by capillary action and cures in only a matter of a few seconds. When bonding objects with Bob Smith Industries' Insta-Cure, the surfaces must be tight fitting and should be held together while you apply the cyanoacrylate glue around the edges of the seam. In addition, this glue is also capable of penetrating more than the surface area of the wood creating a stronger bond. Insta-Cure is perfect when gluing balsa wood and ceramics, but also works well for soft woods, fiberglass and hard plastics and is water resistant. When cyanoacrylate glue dries, it dries crystal clear, does not discolor, nor foams making it a great choice for hobby enthusiasts and dental labs. Guaranteed Fresh! Our products don't sit in a warehouse for months, but rather days. We order on a bi-weekly basis from Bob Smith Industries so you are getting some of the freshest cyanoacrylate possible!
