TITEBOND INSTANT BOND WOOD ADHESIVE from Franklin International is a powerful cyanoacrylate (CA) wood adhesive that sets in as little as five seconds and can cure in just a half-minute when accelerated with Instant Bond Activator, according to the company. With the ability to set and cure in a flash, Instant Bond can be used in applications such as hard-to-reach joints or surface areas that are difficult to clamp. The two-part substrate can be used on materials other than wood including aluminum, PVC, porcelain and stainless steel. Instant Bond comes in four viscosities — thin, medium, thick and gel — to meet particular applications and MIL specifications. Viscosities are color-coded to easily identify what formula to use on a specific application. A 2-oz bottle sells for about $10. Contact: Franklin International. Tel: 800-347-4583.
