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.

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.

Threadlocker - Bob Smith Industries, IC-LOC Red
IC-LOC™ Red is a medium thickness, high strength thread lock that is applied to the threads of fasteners before assembly. Once the IC-LOC Red™ is cured, the fasteners are permanently together and cannot be disassembled. IC-LOC Red™ will maintain its strength up to 490° F. Uses
  • Threads of fasteners
  • Threads that need permanent bond

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, 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.
