Bob Smith Industries Super-Gold Foam Safe 1/2oz Thin CA Glue - BSI121
Bob Smith Industries Super-Gold Foam Safe 1/2oz Thin CA Glue
Bob Smith Industries CA is completely odourless during curing, so no irritation to nose or eyes, are non-blooming and only take a few seconds longer to bond than the standard versions. They are not as strong as regular CA and are much more expensive to produce but in situations when a lot of gluing is being done such as the saturation of fibreglass cloth when laminating they provide an escape from exposure to the irritating and unpleasant fumes of the evaporating monomer.
In addition Super-Gold’s don’t attack white foam so they can be used in the construction of foam core wings and the repair of any of the many foam based ARF’s that are available nowadays. The non-blooming property also makes them the best choice for plastic kit construction with clear parts like canopies, although Super-Gold is still the best choice for assembly of the rest of the kit.
For the most part the fumes that CA’s emit during the curing process although unpleasant don’t actually do any harm. If however sensitivity is an issue, or perhaps the working area where the CA is being used is unable to receive adequate ventilation, odourless CA’s in the form of Super-Gold™ and Super-Gold+ do provide a solution.
