The surface properties of some materials, such as being acidic or having very low moisture content, slow down the curing of cyanoacrylates. CA accelerator is formulated to harden CA in ten seconds or less. Accelerator allows large gaps to be filled in loose fitting joints and cures the excess CA that sometimes oozes out of joints so that objects can be handled within seconds without the worry of sticking one’s fingers to the parts. Accelerator makes the repair of household items much easier.
INSTA-SET™ is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. INSTA-SET™ in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with INSTA-SET™ significantly enhances a joint’s strength. For difficult to bond materials, INSTA-SET™ can be applied to one surface and CA to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. INSTA-SET™ is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam.
