Default CA or super glue or what ever you call it, which is your favourite and why?

as the title says this is about CA
ive used the green pacer zap a gap stuff and it dries to quick for my likeing cause when im doing tyres i like a little time to get it in place.
looking at the zap slow dry stuff saw it on tower.
any way what other glues work well?
herd good thing about locktite's quicktite (thanks heavy)?
any way probably quite boring but i figure if it stops some one from glueing their fingers together (probably me) well it was worth it.
thanks all
also the very fine glue aplicators used for cutting and reglueing monster truck tires, can u buy them seperately?

Guys little secret with most of the ca supa glues try placing it in the fridge as this helps the shelf life plus makes the glue thinner and it also takes a bit longer to set as it must have to come back to like room temp..
i was never any good at glueing tyres myself until i try'd this and now they are perfect and no hassles..

I've been using Loctite 406 for years now and had no dramas. Keeping it refridgerated is the trick, particularly after it has been opened.

Loctite 406, best bond strength for rubber tires I have used to date, note allot of other manufacturers rebadge loctite 406 as their own.

Also the Much More glue is quite good, very good bottle / nib making application easier.

Yeah i have some of the team muchmore stuff, its really runny and fast setting. It was a pain at first but now i prefer it. Only problem is that i am finding that the pipette (or nozzle thing, whatever you call it) gets buggered up, and ive had to cut it back bit by bit so it comes out a little faster now and i have to more cautious when gluing tires. Havent seen any spares at the place where i bought it from.

loctite 406 all the way. i use in on me r/c gear. (only if i have to) also use it a lot in my trade(mechanics) really like the loctite products.
i have even used it to glue a laundry tub to a wall. that is how good it is. if the right prep is taken. ie primer etc etc.

For my mind, you can't go past the stuff you get from Crazy Clarks!! It's only $2-00 for (8) eight tubes!!! That's right 8 tubes!!!

That's a bargin!!!

It's best for use on gluing tires only. (I have never had a touring car tire peel off its rim yet!!!)



If you are wanting to seal CF edges, then ZAP (fast drying - green/pink label is best).

My 2 cents worth.
