INSTA-FLEX™ flexible thin CA is ideal for many applications, including the installation of CA hinges. When cured, INSTA-FLEX™ does not turn brittle and remains clear, even if accelerated with INSTA-SET™. It has superior shock resistance. Although not as thin in consistency as INSTA-CURE™, INSTA-FLEX™ still has good penetrating qualities and its application can be easier to control. For CA hinges, we recommend drilling a 1/16" hole in the center of the hinge slots to insure the complete saturation of the hinge when INSTA-FLEX™ is applied. INSTA-FLEX™ has a different, less irritating odor compared to regular CA's, but still can not be used on white foam. INSTA-FLEX™ has also proven to be superior when bonding anodized aluminum.
Cyanoacrylates (CAs) have become the adhesive of choice for most hobby and household applications. High quality CAs such as Insta-Cure, when used properly, form bonds that in many cases are stronger than the material that is being adhered. Insta-Cure is a highly refined CA which, combined with its freshness, gives a guaranteed two year shelf life.IC-2000 is a rubber-toughened cyanoacrylate that forms superior shock resistant bonds on non-porous surfaces. The black colored CA has added flexibility for the bonding of metals, fiberglass, rubber, carbon-fiber, and other advanced materials. Set-up time is 20-40 seconds, which can be accelerated with Insta-Set. When cured, IC-2000 is pliable enough to be carved with a hobby knife.
