instant-adhesive-3mFast bonding with the right combination of strength, cure time and viscosity.
These one-part cyanoacrylate adhesives rapidly reach handling strength at room temperature without a catalyst. On many applications, bonds reach handling strength
in 5–10 seconds and 80% of full strength in an hour. A single drop per square inch can bond many plastics, rubber, metal and more with tensile strength up to 5000 PSI.

Depending on the specific formulation, you have the following features: resistance to fuels, lubricating oils and other chemicals from -40°F to 200°F (-40°C to 93°C); gap filling; extended cure rates for repositionability; high peel and impact strength; conformance to MIL-Spec A-46050C.
