Glue of the Month

Sure Hold Plastic Surgery

It is rare that a new glue impresses us as much as Plastic Surgery has. This is a cyanoacrylate specially formulated for plastics. It will glue acrylic, ABS, nylon, Plexiglass, styrene, and that ever so difficult plastic-PVC. Prior to learning about Plastic Surgery we would have been hard pressed to recommend a glue that would bond PVC to glass, but not any more!!!! We tested Plastic Surgery on many plastics, glass, and metals, and found the bond to be remarkably strong on all non-porous materials. Take note of the astonished look on the face of our official tester when the plexi broke and the Plastic Surgery bond held fast, proving the bond stronger than the plexi.

Plastic Surgery sets in 15 seconds but does take 24 hours to reach full strength (and it's worth waiting for) It is available in regular or gel, for better gap filling ability. See cyanoacrylates for toxicity.

Plastic Surgery is available at major drug stores and hardware stores in North America. Official company site.

Here is our colleague William making an amazing discovery at ThisToThat labs. When he tried to break a Plastic Surgery bond - the plastic broke and not the bond!

True Confessions: Sure Hold sent us a free sample but didn't reward us in any other way to make Plastic Surgery the GOM (Glue of the Month).
