Some tips on using the Bob Smith line of glues, epoxies, and adhesives.
Heat and moisture will decrease the shelf life of Cyanoacrylates (CA) Super Glues. Store unopened bottles in a freezer or refrigerator. Allow them to reach room temperature before using. Keep bottles in a cool place, out of direct sunlight and store away from bottles of accelerators.
Guaranteed shelf life is for 24 months.
To open. Loosen and retighten the top first to relieve internal pressure. Hold the bottle against a vertical surface and cut off the top 1/32″ with a knife or razor blade. Without squeezing the bottle.
Replacing the colored cap. Set the bottle down hard to knock the remaining CA back into the bottle. The squeeze it in an upright position to blow air through the nozzle, then wipe the tip clean.
With all CAs, the closer the parts fit together, the stronger the bond. Always hold the bonding surfaces tight together. Smooth out any rough spots on the mating surfaces.
CAs will hold objects together within seconds. The full strength of the bond is not reached for several hours.
Also, CAs are generally a little less brittle. They have a higher strength when allowed to cure on their own.
