While there’s certainly a stereotype that a workshop is usually for woodworking, there are as many different types of workshops as there are different types of hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers. There is, however, one constant: Bondini adhesives. These adhesives are great for every type of workshop.

Why Choose Bondini?

 

Bondini adhesives are unique in that they do not require a clean surface for application. That’s right! Unlike other glues and epoxies, Bondini adhesives work on even the most uneven, rusty, oily, greasy, grimy, and dirty surfaces. They also work on both porous and nonporous surfaces, including nylon, glass, wood, ceramics, brick, leather, and more. Bondini adhesives are available in dropper, squeeze tube, and brush-on application options so you can apply as much or as little as needed with ease. The Bondini adhesives line from Super Glue includes five different products to meet all of your workshop needs: Bondini 2, Bondini Everything Gel, Bondini Xtreme-3, Bondini 2 Brush-On, and Bondini Brush-On Remover Gel.

 

Uses for Bondini in the Workshop

 

Because it’s so versatile, Bondini has nearly unlimited uses for crafts, home improvement projects, and hobbies.

 

Bondini adhesives from Super Glue Corporation are ideal for automotive and motorcycle work because they can be used on greasy and grimy lines, connections, and other car parts. Bondini adhesives are great for carpentry projects, too, because they can be used to adhere wood, clean or dirty, to almost any surface you could want to. Similarly, Bondini adhesives are perfect for outdoor projects where it can be difficult to clean the surfaces you want to adhere something to.

 

Bondini adhesives can also be used for crafting activities. These adhesives are great for modeling hobbies such as doll house and miniature furniture construction and decoration, as well as creating model trains, cars, planes, and other vehicles. Art projects like mosaics, sculptures, and jewelry-making can also be made easier with the versatility of Bondini adhesives.

 

Workshop Safety

 

Remember that all strong adhesives require a few safety steps to protect you and your workshop. Before starting any project, make sure to cover any surfaces that you want protected and plastic gloves to protect your skin. You may also want to consider a mask and protective eyewear to protect yourself from the adhesive’s fumes, especially if you have sensitive eyes or a sensitive respiratory system. Make sure you read the instructions on your adhesive before you start your project to avoid damage to your materials.

 

While working on your project, work in a well ventilated area. Fans and open doors and windows can help create ventilation if your workshop is not already well ventilated. Keep your Bondini adhesive away from children and animals, and keep the cap on your adhesive product while it’s not in use. Hold the container firmly, but without squeezing, and facing away from you to avoid spillage and make sure any spillage isn’t on you.

 

Cleaning Up

 

If you need to clean or remove Bondini from a surface, don’t just attempt to tear or pry it off as you can damage the surface you’re trying to pull it off of, whether it’s your skin or something else. Use warm soapy water to work the glue off. You can gently pry at this point to hurry the process, but stop if you meet resistance. Acetone can also remove Bondini and other adhesives, but can damage surfaces and irritate the skin. If you’re trying to remove the adhesive from around your eyes and mouth, just use warm water. If you have difficulty removing adhesive after following these steps, contact a medical professional.

These adhesives are specifically formulated to be used on both porous and nonporous products including woods, such as balsa wood, metal, plastic, and fiberglass.

 

In addition to adhesives, the Zap Family of products include a variety of products to maintain and protect other hobby components, including engine parts, canopies, electrical connections, and others.

 

Uses for Zap Products

 

Between Zap’s adhesives and other products, this line can be used for almost any hobby.

The Zap line offers adhesives perfect for laminating wood parts, filling gaps, detailed repairs, strengthening fiberglass, and sealing parts. These products come in a range of consistencies for whatever strength of adhesion is needed and for minimizing the appearance of repaired cracks. Zap also offers adhesives that are safe for products that can be damaged by other adhesives, such as foam and plastics.

Cleaning Up Zap Products

 

If you need to remove a Zap product from a surface, don’t attempt to force it off and pull adhered objects apart. This can damage the surfaces. Sometimes a razor blade can be used to sever bonds and separate items, but, if not, soak the area in warm soapy water to soften the glue. The adhesive should weaken within a few hours. Acetone can also be used to remove adhesives, but can damage surfaces and irritate skin, so hobbyists should use acetone for this purpose with caution. If trying to remove Zap products from around the mouth and eyes, do not use soap, just warm water. If adhesive or epoxy doesn’t remove from the body within a few hours, contact a medical professional.

5 Strength Defying Uses for Super Glue

While super glue can be a great tool to use around the house for those DIY projects, most people don’t know just how strong this adhesive really is. In fact, time and time again, super glue has been proven to be one of the strongest available bonding agents on the market.

Here’s a look at five ways super glue has been used that proves just how strong a bonding agent it truly is.

girl-climbing-on-the-rocky-mountain

girl-climbing-on-the-rocky-mountain

 1. The Hanging Car

A radio station had heard about super glues and decided to put them to the test at a local junk yard. Among the super glues tested were many of the National Brands on the market today. The test was to hold a hanging car from a crane. Eastman 910 (commonly known today as super glue) bonded steel which lifted up to 3000 pounds after just 10 seconds. Today’s record for weight held up by super glue is 5000 pounds.

 2. Mountain Free-Climbing

Recently, two Americans completed what has long been considered the world’s most difficult rock climb, using only their hands and feet to conquer a 900m vertical wall on El Capitan, the forbidding granite face in Yosemite National Park that has beckoned adventurers for decades.

Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson became the first to free-climb the Dawn Wall, a feat that many had considered impossible. They used ropes and safety harnesses to catch them in case of a fall, but relied on their own strength and dexterity to ascend by grasping cracks as thin as razor blades and as small as coins, which is extremely tough on the fingertips.

When the fingertip callus splits, climbers have devised various remedies that allow them to keep going. Athletic tape (applied in an X-pattern to allow full mobility of the finger joint) can provide enough protection for an injury. More advanced than the X-pattern is the Miami Thong, also known as the British Flag, in which separate strips of tape are applied in layers, first longitudinally, then in a crisscross design.

A common problem with tape is its tendency to slip off the finger. Instead of wrapping the finger more tightly and risking it going numb, climbers often use a strong adhesive such as super glue, applying it directly to the skin before wrapping the digit in tape.

 3. Battlefield Wounds

The use of super glue in medicine was considered early on. Eastman Kodak and Ethicon began studying whether the glue could be used to hold human tissue together for surgery. In 1966, super glue found a use in Vietnam, tested on-site by a specially trained surgical team, with impressive results.

The compound demonstrated an excellent capacity to stop bleeding; so, during the Vietnam War, Dr. Coover developed disposal super glue sprays for use in the battlefield. This spray was used as a way to stop bleeding from an open wound, so that wounded soldiers were able to be transported back to the base hospital.

Super glues are still used in surgeries today to close up wounds and surgical incisions, and can be used as a barrier against common bacterial microbes including certain staphylococci, pseudomonads, and Escherichia coli. Super glues also find use in medicine for orthopedic surgery, dental and oral medicine, veterinary medicine, and for home use as Band Aid brand Liquid Bandage.

 4. Fixing Coral Reefs

Super glue has even proven to be strong underwater, as it can be used to fix coral reefs. While this is a popular trend among people who own aquariums, just imagine the potential that super glue has for fixing damage to coral reefs in the ocean.

To attach coral frags in your aquarium:

  1. Gather your materials—Super Glue adhesive, AquaMend putty, paper towels, and your coral frag.
  2. Find the right location—take into account the flow and lighting the area provides, match that with the requirements of the coral frag.
  3. Trim the frag plug—frags are sold on live rock pieces or on their own. You will need to trim to match the type of aquascape you are looking for.
  4. Mix up a small ball of AquaMend putty—make just enough to fill any holes or areas that are on the live rock you are attaching to.
  5. Apply the adhesive gel to the frag or plug—dab dry the coral with a paper towel. Use the correct amount to make a secure bond for the next step, but try not to add too much that it will ooze onto the coral itself.
  6. Apply the putty ball to the adhesive on the frag—you don’t need to push very hard, just secure it to the glue.
  7. Apply another layer of adhesive to the top of the putty—super glue gel will cure to a wet surface.

Leather and Wood Super Glue: Repairs and Projects

Black-Leather-Chair

Do you happen to have any old pieces of furniture or old leather bags lying around the house that you want to repair or repurpose? Just because something is old and well-worn doesn’t mean that you need to throw it out.
With the use of Leather and Wood Super Glue, you can fix up those old pieces that you once loved or repurpose them in a fun art project. Leather and Wood Super Glue has the strength and versatility to help you finish the perfect project.

What can Leather and Wood Super Glue do for You?

Leather and Wood Super Glue has a special formula designed specifically to help you repair some of your favorite things or repurpose old things that you want to give new meaning to. This type of adhesive is perfect for working on chairs, tables, leather seat cushions, shoes, handbags, brief-cases, saddles, and any other items made of leather or wood. Leather and Wood Super Glue is a quick-setting adhesive that bonds super strong with no clamps and dries clear.

For best results, the surface that you are gluing should be clean and dry. Leather and Wood Super Glue shouldn’t be used on Teflon, polyethylene, polypropylene, certain silicone rubber types, glass, or parts that are subjected to shock or continuous water immersion. Store your Leather and Wood Super Glue in a cool area away from sunlight or heat sources, and it will have a shelf life of one year.

Repairs

Leather and Wood Super Glue can be used to repair many things, from old pieces of furniture to shoes, from a combination of leather and wood projects to projects that are purely wood or leather.

Wood Repairs

Leather and Wood Super Glue can be used to stabilize rotting wood or to fill old nail holes. This trick requires mixing Super Glue with sawdust (specifically sawdust that matches the type of wood you’re repairing) until the hole or space is filled. Once the mixture has set, you can remove excess with sandpaper.

Leather and Wood Super Glue can also be used to repair minor damage to furniture joints and other wood surfaces. To use Leather and Wood Super Glue to repair damaged furniture, you should place the furniture on a flat surface and add a light coat of glue to each joint or crack. Leather and Wood Glue requires no clamping and dries almost instantly.

Leather Repairs

Leather and Wood Super Glue can be used to repair cuts or other damage to leather and wood products. To repair cuts in a leather surface, you must first clean the leather and allow it to completely dry before applying the glue with a toothpick or applicable tool. When applying the glue, make sure to pinch the cut together. You will also need to press the cut area down to release any excess glue before the area completely dries.

Leather and Wood Super Glue can also be used to repair burns or large holes in a leather surface. First you will have to remove as much of the burned portion as you can with an abrasive cloth or sandpaper, being careful not to damage any other areas of the leather surface. Once you’ve done this and thoroughly cleaned the surrounding area, you will need to cut a piece of replacement leather that fits over the damaged area. Apply glue to the back of the replacement and on the affected area with a small paintbrush, then place the replacement leather on top of the damaged area. Use a clean rag to wipe away any excess glue.

DIY Wood Projects

Leather and Wood Super Glue can be used on a wide variety of wooden projects that can be either simple or extravagant.

Some do-it-yourself wood projects include:

  • Jewelry boards
  • Wooden mirrors
  • Tree branch tables
  • Wooden aisle runners
  • Wooden bracelets
  • Cube pendant lights
  • Wood pencil blocks
  • Wooden photo frames
  • Headboards

DIY Leather Projects

Just like the wide variety of wood projects, you can also use Leather and Wood Super Glue on a number of leather projects.

Some do it yourself leather projects include:

  • Woven leather stools
  • Sculptural leather plant hangers
  • Desk organizers
  • Countertop wine racks
  • Magazine or mail racks
  • Leather cup jackets
  • Curtain tiebacks
  • Leather furniture upholstery

No matter the repairs or the project, chances are Super Glue has a product suited to your needs. Check out our Products page to see what we have on offer.

Super Glue Projects to Improve Your Office Space

Super-Glue-Projects-to-Improve-Your-Office-Space

Everyone goes through bad days at work, where they have trouble concentrating and have a hard time getting things done. But if you have noticed that it has become a chronic problem, it could be a sign that your desk is too cluttered and in need of organization. With a few supplies you have around the house and a little help from Super Glue products, you can add some character and practicality to your office space.

Organize Your Wires

For some people, wires are a huge problem, and it’s no wonder why. A typical desk for many office jobs could include quite a few electronics, including a desktop, a printer, a phone, a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone. Each one of those things is going to need an outlet as a permanent power source, or a charge from time to time. Add it all up, and you’re going to have a huge mess of wires cluttering your desk.

Superglue has a great solution: Super Klips. These self-adhesive clips can be used on just about any surface to keep your wires from going all over the place, and make it easier for you to distinguish your wires from each other. No more picking through a huge bundle of wires, or pushing a stubborn wire out of your way in the middle of an important project. Attach them to your desktop, and you’ll never have to pick them off the ground again.

Make Your Surge Protector Accessible

With all those electronics, you’re going to need a surge protector to plug them all in. But unfortunately, surge protectors are rarely found in a convenient place. For most people, they are tucked away in the far corner under their desk, meaning that they have to get down on their hands and knees to get to it.

Why put yourself through that trouble again? Simply attach a couple of Super Glue’s Super Klips to the bottom of your desk or the side of your cubicle, and then hang a kitchen basket on them. Your surge protector will be within arm’s reach at all times.

These clips will also be very handy for hanging your headphones when you’re not using them.

Organize Your Pens and Clips

Chances are that you already have a cup or something similar to hold all of your pens, highlighters, clips, and other supplies. Or, you might have a divider in your desk where many of your supplies are held. If you are like most people, though, your things have likely fallen into disarray, and the organization plan you once had has fallen through.

Bring order back to your supplies with a mason jar (or can) organizer. By stocking up on a few mason jars or old cans and gluing them together with the appropriate adhesive (like Glass Adhesive), your pens will be easily accessible and simple to separate. Best of all, this project is extremely versatile: you can use as many or as few jars or cans as you like, depending on the amount of space you have.

Office Solutions for Anyone

You go through a lot of stress as it is: don’t make things worse with a messy desk. We showed you a number of affordable Super Glue products that will make your job so much easier. With so many simple ways to tidy up your desk, you shouldn’t wonder if you should reorganize your desk, but when.

Avoid a Sticky Situation: Industrial Adhesive Safety Tips

Industrial-Adhesive-Safety-Tips

While industrial adhesive, or super glue, can be useful in a number of different ways, it can also be difficult to use and can often cause problems if you don’t know how to use it correctly. Before you think about using your tube of super glue to fix an item, think about whether or not you should learn some safety tips in order to make the process a little less sticky.

Make Sure to Read the Application Instructions

Some of the biggest mishaps tend to happen when users of Super Glue do not know how to properly apply it. One way to solve this is to take a thorough look at the instructions on the back. It can also help you find the right product for your specific needs and what you need to accomplish. The warning and precautions are also written on the back, so you can decide which applicator to use so you don’t run into problems with excess glue.

Make Sure You Have Plenty of Air

An adhesive can be useful, but too many fumes from it can also cause breathing problems if you are exposed to it for a long time. When you are working with the product, you will want to work in a well-ventilated area. Make sure there is plenty of air coming through and that you can breathe normally. If you start to feel lightheaded, you might want to take a break or take your work outside with you so there is less risk.

Take Steps before Opening the Container

You will want to take time to properly set up your work space before you begin your project. After you have put together your work space and you have laid out what needs to be glued, you will want to carefully open the container. Remember to keep the tube away from your face as there’s always the possibility for the glue to spurt up into your face and get in your eyes.

Cover Areas You Don’t Want Glued

One way to avoid getting glue in places that you don’t want is to protect your work area (aluminum foil works well). Also, consider wearing plastic gloves so you can avoid getting glue on your hands—it can be difficult to get off and can hurt your skin.

Take Care of the Glue on Your Skin

If you find that you have gotten super glue on your skin, you will want to be careful on how you choose to get it off. Do not try and rip off the dry glue—this can rip off some of your own skin and can be very painful. The best thing to do is immerse the area in warm, soapy water. Peel or roll skin apart; a spatula or teaspoon handle or even a pencil will help. Remove cured adhesive with warm, soapy water may take several applications. Fingernail polish remover with an acetone base has also been successful for removal of cured adhesive from skin.

Beware of Wool or Cotton

Both cotton and wool can often cause problems when it reacts to super glue. If you have any wool or cotton near the super glue, it can sometimes lead to catching on fire. You should consider removing it so you do not have an issue and you can avoid serious potential damage. You will also want to make sure that you do not wear clothing made of wool or cotton while working on a project.

Clean Up

Once you have finished a project, you should carefully cap the glue and make sure to clean up the working area.

How to Re-Secure Outdoor Lights with Super Glue Epoxies

July 6, 2016 No comments »

Outdoor-Lights-with-Super-Glue-Epoxies

Because of their exposure to severe weather and nature’s other forces, outdoor lights undergo a lot of abuse that can cause the lights to break or come loose. This leads many homeowners to call a professional for help or to simply purchase new lights, but this can be expensive and a needless waste of time. Fortunately, with Super Glue epoxies, repairing and reattaching outdoor lights is a simple and easy DIY job that even the most inexperienced would-be handyman can do.

Before You Start

Before starting any project it is important to read the instructions so you aren’t taken by surprise during the project. Surprises can simply mean an inconvenience like having to find a brace for your light because it takes longer than you thought for the adhesive to set; but surprises could also be damaged lights as not all adhesives are safe for use with plastics.

Repairing Your Outdoor Lights

There are three common DIY repairs for outdoor lights that homeowners may need to do.

First, the entire light fixture can sometimes become unattached from the point where it is mounted. This often requires repairs to the mounting unit, which is typically damaged when the light becomes loose, but may also require Super Glue epoxies to reattach the entire fixture. To repair the unit, simply apply Super Glue epoxies to the crack or point of the break, and place the broken pieces back together, apply light pressure and allow the adhesive to set. Some epoxies may require waiting for the adhesive to become tacky before reattaching or may take some time to set, requiring the light to be held or braced in a certain position with a certain amount of pressure. Always follow the directions that come with your particular Super Glue epoxy.

Second, if the fixture is not broken but needs to be reapplied to the point where it was previously mounted, the repair may simply require that the Super Glue epoxy is liberally applied to the base of the unit, which is then held or braced against the place where the light is to be mounted. Some homeowners choose to use Super Glue epoxies in combination with screws to keep lighting mounted, but adhesive alone is an option for lights or mounting surfaces that do not permit the use of screws, or lights mounted in places where they are unlikely to be knocked off.

Third, many of us use clips to hang string lights from our porches, balconies, gutters, or other places around our homes; but these clips can become brittle from extended exposure to the elements. To repair these clips, simply apply adhesive to the edges of the broken parts and hold them together while the adhesive dries. This project will not require as strong of an adhesive as the others, so the epoxy should dry in seconds.

Keeping Safe

To prevent accidents, keep adhesives like Super Glue epoxies away from children and animals, and keep the cap on the adhesive when you are not using it. Hold the container firmly but gently to prevent dropping and spilling, and keep the container held at a distance and pointed away from you while opening.

Cleaning Up

To seal syringe, pull back on plunger, wipe tips and place cap firmly on tips. If there is excess glue, use a paper towel and denatured alcohol to remove before it sets.

Super Glue offers a wide variety of adhesive products for both indoor and outdoor use, with an adhesive available for almost any project or hobby. Find out more about Super Glue uses, removal, and projects and how you can use Super Glue products to be your own handyman today.

Weekend Project Repairs | Fix-All Adhesive

Small Shed On Backyard

Small Shed On Backyard

This past weekend, I decided to take a good hard look at my backyard. I had recently opened my pool, and my garden was in full swing, but some of the other aspects of my yard were decrepit and disheveled. This weekend it would all change, I thought. My weekend project: repairs!

I bought some Fix-All Adhesive and got to work on fixing my plastic posts and pool ladder, my shed lock, my vinyl siding, and my mounted hose reel. By the end of the weekend, my back yard would be ready for a 4th of July barbeque with the neighbors, family and friends.

 

Weekend Project Repairs | The Plastic Posts and Pool Ladder

Fix-All Adhesive works on a variety of materials, so when I decided to fix up my backyard I started using it to fix my plastic deck posts. It filled all the cracks and holes in my plastic posts as well as sealed them back together on top where some of the posts were beginning to fall off.

When you start to use your Fix-All Adhesive, press the plastic cap into the tube to break the seal and make sure to apply the Fix-All to both surfaces you are gluing to ensure that it is sealed in the correct place.

Additionally, Fix-All is water resistant, so I used it to fix parts of my pool ladder that were cracked at the top. I can rest easy knowing full well that while parts of the ladder will be sprayed by water, Fix-All Adhesive will stay in place.

 

Weekend Project Repairs | Shed Lock | Metal on Wood

Next on my weekend project repairs list: my shed lock, which has been broken for some time. Fix-All Adhesive works on brick, canvas, ceramic, china, concrete, fabric, glass, leather, metal, plastics, both porous and non-porous materials, rubber, vinyl and wood. My lock is metal and I was affixing it to my wooden shed doors, so Fix-All Adhesive had me covered.
I applied a small amount to both the back of the metal lock and the part of the shed door where I wanted the lock to be affixed and set it to dry. My lock was back in action thanks to Fix-All Adhesive.

 

Weekend Project Repairs | Vinyl Siding

Fix-All Adhesive is a multipurpose and versatile adhesive, so I used it to seal some of the cracks between the vinyl siding on my house. Again, because Fix-All is water resistant, you don’t have to worry about a little rain causing the sealant to deteriorate. By applying a small amount of Fix-All Adhesive to each part of the panel that I wanted to adhere together, I was able to repair the vinyl siding of my home.

 

Weekend Project Repairs | Metal Hose Reel

This adhesive works on so many different materials, including metal. I used Fix-All to repair my metal hose reel. A piece that wound the hose around had broken off, so I applied Fix-All to both the piece that had broken off and the ends of the hose reel where I wanted to seal it.

Because Fix-All also works on brick, it could also be used to give extra security and a tighter seal to the hose reel fixture on the back of my home.

 

Weekend Project Repairs | Fix-All Adhesive

At the end of the weekend, my backyard looked fresh and ready for company.

Whether it’s fixing up your backyard, repairing an old swing set, or building a creative project, Fix-All is full of surprises.

Money-saving repairs | Adhesive for Wood and Plastic

As mentioned previously, I used Bondini Everything Gel to bond the acoustic bridge of my guitar back into place, which is made of plastic, while my guitar is made of wood.

Do be careful when using this product, however. If you happen to get the adhesive on any unwanted surface, it will stick and possibly mar the surface.

Money-saving Repairs | Mend Rubber

How many times have you bought a new pair of shoes because you wore through the bottom of your old pair? Another money-saving repair made possible with a little Bondini Everything Gel.

No more spending $20-$200 dollars on new shoes when you can fix your favorite pair. Mend the rubber soles and leave them to sit overnight in a sturdy position.

Contemporary outdoor patio with fireplace

With increased exposure to the elements, all manner of outdoor furniture and items can be more susceptible to the occasional blemish or breakage. When this does happen, you may just be able to fix your broken chair or splintered pipe with nothing more than a quality adhesive epoxy.

The benefits of adhesive epoxies aren’t just restricted to repairs, however. They’re a versatile and effective solution for various adhesive-based needs, with the majority of them being weather-resistant and ideal for outdoor applications.

 

The Various Applications of Adhesive Epoxies

There are a wide range of adhesive epoxy solutions available from the Super Glue Corporation, most of which will help with the securing or repairing of outdoor items. Which one you opt for depends on your needs. You may need a quick setting epoxy for emergency repairs, a waterproof one that would be ideal for pipes and guttering, or a metal epoxy for metal appliance and tool repairs.

Below is a list of just some the ways you can utilize adhesive epoxies:

  • On outdoor furniture: Repair broken legs on an outdoor chair or table.
  • Pipes and guttering: Seal and solidify cracks present on downpipes, fix damage on gutter guards, etc.
  • Tools: Reattach the head of hammers/shovels to the handle, secure the carriage of a wheelbarrow to its framing, set screws in place in the event they tend to come loose frequently, etc.
  • Lights: If you can’t screw a lamp’s framing/support to the exterior wall of your home, use an epoxy to secure it instead.
  • Signage: Easily secure signage, such as your address number, to your mailbox, fence, and more.

 

What about indoors

Adhesive epoxy is by no means restricted to outdoor applications. Many epoxies, such as the quick setting epoxies, are perfect for indoor repairs. You could secure a loosened section of your bookshelf, add additional strength to your TV’s wall mounts, fixing a broken clip on a landline phone, and more.
