CA glue is Cyanoacrylate. The best version I have seen so far would be Zap-a-gap. For this task you want the thinnest type you can get your hands on.
I am not familiar with Crazy glue but I would say contact cement would be too thick. The edges should be sanded lightly first to take away any roughness and unnecessary splinters.
I gather you have cut the Carbon Fibre yourself. If not and you bought a part from the likes of PenguinRC then it will already be sealed at the factory.
Have you read the article on the Calandra Racing Website yet on this subject. They explain the process very well. If you have not cut Carbon before be really sure to cut it in a well ventilated room and use a mask. I also recommend that you have some way of running a coolant or water over the cut area while you are cutting. The heat from cutting Carbon gets really high and it will fracture or worse. It also helps take away a lot of the harmful Carbon Dust which is deadly.
