When you say adhesives, you think “glue”. With glue, you stick things together. That’s so 70’s. When you combine the power of chemical reactions, an understanding of the laws of physics and adhesive technology in the 21st century, you get a bond, not a glue join. Specifically covalent bonds.
The critical thing for you to know is that bonds are stronger and more durable than glue joins … every time … with every substrate. So do you want to glue or do you want to bond?
Surface Insensitive Structural Cyanoacrylates.
Our primary adhesives are the polymer-enhanced Surface Insensitive (SI) Structural Cyanoacrylates (SCA’s). Surface insensitive CA adhesives are formulated to react much faster than traditional CA’s. Speed is important when creating a bond. Since chemical reactions occur quickly, the speed factor inherent in an SI adhesive is, we believe, important in the creation of a bond. That speed is further maximized with our Activator/Accelerators. We have observed that the chemical reaction is always stronger when the Activator/Accelerator is used. If a molecular engineer reads this, we would greatly appreciate if you would test this hypothesis. Let us know if your results match ours.
Types of SI SCA’s
Our SI SCA’s include:
SI Blue (100 cP) – SI Blue is our standard viscosity SCA. A little thicker than most store CA’s, you have much more control. Lack of control has been the biggest problem with the CA’s and superglues sold in big box stores. SI Blue is our recommendation for general usage.
Use SI Black (1500 cP) when more control when needed. In addition, the thicker viscosity of SI Black means that it will handle ambient moisture better. A fact appreciated by taxidermists and those working in prep rooms.
Our ultra-thin SI Green (0 – 5 cP) works best when you have a hairline crack. Note: the reason why these really runny CA’s is sold in stores is that they have the longest shelf life. CA’a, super-glues are perishable. Treat them accordingly, i.e., refrigerate.
Finally, SI Brown (600 cP) – SI Brown offer a nice blend of control and spreadability. It’s a special order product that is favored by many manufacturers and maintenance departments.
One final theory about chemical reactions. A theory that has a 100% success rate. Using an SI SCA, an Activator/Accelerator and heat on a primed polymer means that you can bond a poly to itself or any other substrate. Actually, the Bonding Poly Process is a fact.
BP Blue is our Structural Cyanoacrylate (SCA) that works on some polymers co-polymers and polyolefins (poly-plastics). If there is a large enough surface area, BP Blue will work well on a number of poly’s, not so well on other. There are a number of manufacturers and maintenance departments that use BP Blue.
Please note that the Bonding Poly Process (patent pending) works on all polymers, co-polymers and all poly-plastics. The Bonding Poly Process even works on recycled plastics.

Foam Safe Cyanoacrylates (CA’s)
There are two types of foams. Closed cell like EPP or EPO and open cell like foam core. Open cell foams require a foam safe CA. A foam sage accelerator is recommended whenever using a foam safe cyanoacrylate. Buy a foam safe CA by clicking the button below.
