VA Contact Gel Super Glue

Our Contact Gel cyanoacrylate (CA) is a very thick & pasty type of super glue that is good for bonding porous materials (like felt or sponge), covering slightly larger gaps and/or for when you need a super glue with an extended cure time.

Available in two sizes below, this quality glue works with a wide range of materials. Click on any of the product sizes listed for a full description, technical specifications and bulk pricing.

Contact Gel Cyanoacrylate Adhesive Key Features.

High Viscosity CA Glue for Porous Materials.

We classify our Contact Gel as having a High Viscosity. When measured at 20°C, it is about 60,000 to 90,000 mPa·s.

What this means in practice is that our contact gel is quite thick with an almost pasty consistency. This makes it a great choice for bonding fabrics, leather, sponge and other types of porous materials that thinner, lower viscosity super glues would simply seep through.

Extended Cure Time.

Contact Gel CA Glue has a relatively longer cure time for a super glue. This can be a benefit as it allows for some short-term realignment of parts being bonded before the glue will set.

Like all super glues (and most other adhesives really), the actual time taken for initial adhesion will vary depending on the conditions in which you are bonding (the warmer the temp. and the higher the humidity; the fast the glue sets) and the materials being bonded. A summary of times for initial adhesion with Contact Gel Glue is included below:

Material Time for Initial Adhesion

Aluminium

90 - 120 Seconds.

Nitrile Rubber

20 - 30 Seconds.

Hard PVC

40 - 80 Seconds.

Good Material Compatability Range.

This versatile super glue is able to bond a range of different material types. This cyanoacrylate achieves the following shear strength ratings (DIN EN 1465) with various materials (more details are on the TDS found on the product pages):

Material Shear Strength

Steel
(Sand Blasted)

21 N/mm²

Aluminium
(Sand Blasted)

15 N/mm²

Rigid PVC Plastic

13 N/mm²

Nitrile Rubber

>8 N/mm²
