About Krazy Glue

What is Krazy Glue?

  • The chemical name for Krazy Glue is ethyl cyanoacrylate. Defined as a non-toxic, colorless, fast- acting adhesive, it can hold up to 2,000lbs. per square inch. A catalyst is required to activate Krazy Glue. Commonly water, which is present on almost any surface, it makes it even more important to always keep the glue container sealed tightly.

How does it work?

  • A little Krazy Glue goes a long way. Requiring only a small amount to form a bond, our glue works best on smaller surfaces. With a light touch, it bonds instantly—no chemical catalyst, clamps, vices or other heat sources necessary.

What’s the best way to use it?

  • Clean and dry surface thoroughly. Remove paint, old glue or other substances. Sand or plane your wood to make a flat surface. Remove oil and dust from metal surfaces. For best results, clean metal with an acetone solvent. Squeeze a small amount of Krazy Glue onto surface. Use one drop per square inch—too much will take longer to bond, or may not bond at all. Join the parts and press for 30 seconds. Make sure that the parts are stable, and allow it to set for a few minutes. For maximum strength, allow the glue to cure overnight. Once you’re finished using Krazy Glue, keep it fresh by closing the container tightly and storing in a cool, dark place.
