Very good product, 4/5 for usefulness. Very good for veneers and thin laminates. Only problem is what to do with the empty cylinders?

Product reviews for our: 20g Bottle of Ethyl Cyanoacrylate (Industrial Strength Superglue) (A different size of this product)


Fantastic product. Noticeably better and stronger than any off the shelf super glues. Absorbs into the surface which you want to stick together so creates a much better bond. Best super glue you'll find.
