Threadlocker - Bob Smith Industries, IC-LOC Green
IC-LOC™ Green is a thin, medium-high strength threadlock that is applied to fasteners that are already assembled. IC-LOC™ Green wicks down into the threads of fasteners using capillary action and has good performance even with oil coated fasteners. Uses
  • Threads of fasteners
  • Bolts
  • Screws
  • Nuts

Directions: Shake well. Unscrew cap and cut off tip. Apply IC-LOC™ Green to clean preassembled fasteners. Product sets in 10 minutes, with full cure within 24 hours. IC-LOC™ Green prevents the loosening of threaded fasteners from shock and vibration by wicking into threads. Cured temperature range is -60° to +300°F (-51° to +149°C). Locked fasteners are only removable by localized heating and hand tools. Remove residue with a damp cloth. Similar to Loctite Green.

Tool - Potentiometer Cleaning Cap, Aluminum
Potentiometer cleaning caps for use with aerosol cleaners such as DeoxIT. This is a great tool for difficult to clean potentiometers such as those on hollow body guitars and certain amp chassis. The design pushes the spray in through the bushing of the potentiometer removing the need to access the back of the potentiometer. To use: Remove the knob and thread the cleaning cap onto the potentiometer. If there is enough bushing, attach the rubber o-ring first. If not, simply thread the cleaning cap onto the bushing and place a rag around it. Using a rag is recommended with and without the o-ring. Insert the DeoxIT straw into the small hole on the side of the cleaning cap. Cover the open end with your finger and spray. The cleaning solution is directed to the shaft of the pot where it can seep in. You can turn split shaft pots with a screwdriver through the open end to help move the cleaner around inside the pot.

Epoxy - Bob Smith Industries, Quik-Cure
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. Quik-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 our 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 1 hour. Works Best On:
  • Hard Wood
  • Glass & Metal

Works Well On:
  • Balsa Wood
  • Soft Wood
  • Fiberglass
  • Ceramics
  • Hard Plastics
  • White Foam
  • Reinforcing

Directions: Quik-Cure™ 5 min.

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Flex+
Insta-Flex+™ clear rubber toughened has similar qualities to Bob Smith Industries black IC-2000™ 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-Flex+™ has this carbon removed, its strength is a little less than IC-2000™ but still superior to standard CA's. When esthetics are important and a flexible bond is required, Insta-Flex+™ is your best choice. It forms superior bonds to soft urethane and vinyl plastics. Both Insta-Flex+™ and Insta-Flex+™ work well when bonding R/C car tires.

Adhesive Softener - Bob Smith Industries, Un-Cure
Un-Cure™ debonder will soften cured CA. If parts are bonded incorrectly or your fingers are stuck together, a few drops of Un-Cure™ will dissolve the CA in about a minute. Apply on bonded skin and roll apart fingers. Once stuck, use acetone to clean off softened CA, then wash off with soap and water. Since cured CA is essentially acrylic plastic, anything that will dissolve CA will also soften most plastics. Care must be used, therefore, when using Un-Cure on plastics. Separating plastic parts with a razor saw is usually the best option. Works Well On:
  • Cyanoacrylates
  • Super Glues

Directions: Un-Cure™ will soften cured super glue (aka cyanoacrylate, CA). To release bonded skin (not near the eyes) apply Un-Cure™, then use a small, rounded object like a paperclip to separate the skin with a peeling action, applying more Un-Cure™ as needed until the skin areas are debonded. Wash the area with soap and water.

Threadlocker - Bob Smith Industries, IC-LOC Blue
IC-LOC™ Blue is a medium thickness, medium strength thread lock that is applied to the threads of fasteners before assembly. Once the IC-LOC Blue™ is cured, the fasteners can be disassembled with standard hand tools if required. Uses
  • Threads of fasteners
  • Bolts
  • Screws
  • Nuts

Directions: Shake well, then apply IC-LOC™ Blue to the clean and dry threaded areas before assembling non-plastic parts. Product sets in 10 minutes, with full cure within 24 hours. IC-LOC™ Blue is anaerobic and cures in the absence of air, which occurs when a bolt, screw or nut is tightened. IC-LOC™ Blue prevents loosening of fasteners from normal use and vibration, but parts can still be disassembled with hand tools. IC-LOC™ Blue seals and prevents rusting of threads. Cured temperature range is -60° to +300°F (-51° to +149°C). Remove residue with a damp cloth. Similar to Loctite Blue.

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, IC-GEL
IC-GEL™ is a cyanoacrylate paste that is extremely thick which comes in an applicator tube like toothpaste. It has the same bonding and curing time characteristics as Max-Cure™. IC-GEL™, however, can be applied to a vertical surface and will stay in place. It will not run. This can be very convenient for some assembly applications. Applying CA to the bottom of a horizontal surface, such as a ceiling, can be very difficult with anything other than a full standard CA bottle. IC-GEL™ can be applied at any angle with just a squeeze of the tube. The gel does, however, have a tendency to continue to come out of the tube for about a second after pressure is released, so this must be taken into account to apply the exact amount of IC-GEL™ that you want. IC-GEL™ is an excellent putty for plastic models. It will fill any void and can be formed to many shapes.

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Super-Gold+
Super-Gold+™ is foam-safe, odorless super glue. Super glues can produce fumes that can be irritating to the eyes and nose. While not toxic, some people can become sensitized to these fumes. Super-Gold+™ is BSI’s odorless form of Cyanoacrylate that gives the same high performance characteristics as BSI’s Insta-Cure+ without the irritating fumes. Super-Gold+ will not fog clear plastic and glass, which can occur with the use of standard Cyanoacrylates. It can also be used on all foams.

Directions: Shake well and then apply IC-LOC™ Red to the clean and dry threaded areas before assembling non- plastic parts. Product sets in 10 minutes, with full cure within 24 hours. IC-LOC™Red is anaerobic and cures in the absence of air, which occurs when a bolt, screw or nut is tightened. IC-LOC™ Red permanently prevents the loosening of threaded fasteners from shock and vibration, while sealing and preventing the rusting of threads. Cured temperature range is -60° to +300°F (-51° to +149°C).

Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Plastic-Cure
Plastic-Cure™ is a gap-filling formulation of CA that works best on plastics. It is packaged in a bottle with a brush built into its top, which in many cases is an easier way to apply the CA. As long as brush is put back into the bottle after use, the bristles of the brush will not harden. Care must be taken, however, not to introduce foreign material into the bottle. The brush should not be used, for example, to apply CA to wood that has been freshly sanded. Plastic-Cure will also bond wood, but its brush applicator at times will not be the best way to apply it. Plastic-Cure is superior for the application of false nails and wraps on fingernails, where its brush is the preferred method of application. Uses
  • Plastics
  • Wood
  • Foam
  • False nails and wraps on fingernails

Directions: Carefully unscrew the cap.
