are there 'good' and bad CA superglues?
bootneck posted a topic in ScratchbuildingAs the heading refers; I am trying to find out if all CA/superglues are the same and as good as each other, or if there are particular types to get or avoid. I like to do scratchbuilding and recently I have started to cast some parts in resin, which then need additional pieces of styrene sheet or rod being attached to continue the build. These pieces are quite small, the rod and sheets tend to be around 10 thou (0.25mm) thick and therefore can be too small for two-part epoxies and suchlike. The problem I am currently finding is that the gluing of the plastic to the resin can be hit and miss. Once day everything sticks instantly but another day the piece will separate after a few hours just by the slightest catch with the tweezers etc. I do clean both pieces and sometime abrade both the resin and the plastic pieces before adhering them.
