Check out this terrific gift idea for Mother’s Day we found on Twitter:  a framed fish tank … so clever!!!  We love the idea of action art and we think moms of all ages will love it, too!!

According the the Glitter ‘N Glue blog, here’s what you’ll need for the project:

– a rectangular aquarium

– a rectangular frame

mounting tape (try ours it’s amazing!)

And then, of course, you’ll need the fish, rocks, and decorations for inside the tank (we have an amazing waterproof epoxy that you can use to attach any castles, trees or coral to the bottom of the tank).  Go to the Glitter ‘N Glue blog for more step by step photos and directions for this project.

We so appreciate creativity and we think mom’s (and even dad’s) will, too!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the MOMS out there!!!  You ROCK!!!

It’s winter, but it’s never too early to begin thinking about spring!  Here’s a great craft idea that will keep you busy all winter long and add glitz and glamour to your garden come springtime.  This gorgeous pot was made by spray painting a clay pot white and then trimming the sides with jewel-like, flat-sided marbles.  The marbles can be attached using a clear silicone sealant or epoxy … both provide more outdoor protection from weathering than traditional glues.

We think adding beads, buttons, jewels, small ornaments or even natural items like beans, peas, or small rocks to your outdoor pots would look great as well!

If you decorate an outdoor flower pot using either our silicone sealant or epoxy as the adhesive, send us your story, along with a picture of your project and you may win free samples!

Happy Summer!

2010 Winter Olympics Musings

What would this month have been without the Winter Olympics to watch on tv each evening?  All of the gifted, committed athletes gathering together, in Vancouver, from around the globe, hoping to achieve their personal best and maybe even bring home a medal!  Each event is exciting and each personal story so inspiring.  All of the daily effort, hard work, drive and support it takes to reach this pinnacle of excellence is truly motivational.  The side story to all of this is what impacts everyone who watches even just one of the events or hears just one of the personal stories.  Events like the Olympics remind us that passion and focus are critical to success!

So many of the athletes talk about how, when they were youngsters starting out in the sport, they followed their Olympic heroes and  dreamt of the day when they, too, might participate in the games.  Suddenly, around town we witness increases in attendance at the local skating rinks.  Four year olds know the names of Shaun White,  Shani Davis, Apolo Anton Ono, Lindsey Vonn,  Bode Miller and so many others.  They begin to emulate their style; climbing the hillsides pretending to snowboard down on a sheet of plywood or plastic sheeting like them; dressing like them; reading about them; following them.  And suddenly a new batch of heroes emerge.

The new heroes might not be athletes though.  They may end up being teachers, doctors, engineers, inventors, parents, writers, landscapers, scientists, electricians, or artists.  But the same sticktoitiveness, passion and focus, that takes an athlete to the Olympics, fuels all of the creative producers in the world.  It’s exciting to witness all kinds of passion and focus and we, as consumer product manufacturers and distributors, get to see lots of it in action ourselves. 

Many of the consumers of our products here at Super Glue Corporation are extreme hobbyists, crafters, artists, engineers, and technicians who, each in their own way, model the same characteristics as Olympic athletes.  They are focused achievers who are driven by passion to create, invent, design and improve.  They are risk takers who use their imagination to envision things that they then set out to bring to fruition.  It’s quite impressive.

One interesting fact (also connected to the Winter Olympics – I warned you there were musings in this post:)) is that snowboarders use epoxies and super glues to build and repair their boards.  This makes perfect sense.  Epoxies and super glues are super strong and work really well with substates, involved in building snowboards; like woods, metals, fiberglass, kevlar, etc.  We even have a waterproof epoxy that will hold up under the most extreme wet, winter conditions.  Chips, dings, and other repairs can be fixed in minutes using these inexpensive, readily available products.

For fun, check out the The Adventures of John blog for some details on how to make your own snowboard. 

Through research for this blog, and from the consumers who write in to us at info@supergluecorp.com, we get to see passion, focus and creativity in action.  We get to connect and link into how real, talented people are using our products to meet specific challenges which, in turn, helps motivate us to improve, advance, and deliver more choices and better products.  We all share a kind of  Olympic spirit. Our motto is “Adhering to Excellence”.  What about you?  Do you have a passion and focus in your work or career that you feel is similar to an Olympian’s desire to be at the top of their game?  Tell us about it.

We love hearing from you, and we love working with consumers to ensure that you have the right products for all of your adhesive needs!

Gotta go now …. need to finish up with my work so I can catch some USA hockey in a few … SCORE!

Elephant Seal Scientists!

What do Elephant Seals and Waterproof Epoxy have to do with scientific research?  Well, check out this fascinating story.

In a study initiated by France’s National Musueum of Natural History some important science is being conducted using creative measures.  58 Elephant Seals have been recruited as scientists in the Antarctic Seas.  The seals are being used to collect important data from the thick, ice-covered seas proven previously inaccessible by research ships.  According to the article, in NewScientist, by Tamsin Osborne, 58 seals have monitors glued to their heads “using epoxy, an extremely strong, waterproof glue.” 

With the sensor monitors the elephant seals “can take accurate measurements of salinity, temperature and depth, and relay them by satellite” aiding in important global warming research!  Elephant Seal Scientists – Wow!

It is amazing the many different uses people come up with for adhesives, but this is one of the most unique we’ve encountered in a long time.  We know that epoxies are very strong glues and Super Glue Corporation’s underwater epoxy could certainly hold up to the waterproof test.  Watch this video to see how it can even be applied underwater:
