Today I’m going to show you how you can use a third-generation super glue system to fix many things on your car now. I met a guy named Don who runs tech bond he’s been working 16 years on great ways to use new kinds of super glue to glue things together and here’s what he taught me.
If you’re gluing rubber parts together you have this activator and you spray it on one end and then let it dry doesn’t take that long to dry but I like being conservative so I wait a couple of minutes then I use the s-1 superglue blue it’s the medium-range one and I put it on the opposite end of the rubber then you hold both ends together
if you notice I’m using gloves I wear them a lot when I’m working on cars but you don’t want to get super glue on your fingers have them stick together so wear gloves if the gloves stick together you can just rip them off and throw them away you don’t want to rip your skin off and throw that away although if you do mess up the kit comes with a de-binder and you can put that on to get the glue to come apart there’s the rubber pieces and I glue together and look.
I’m pulling as hard as I can, and I can’t rip it apart it’s tough votes pretty strong it does take 24 hours or so to completely dry up but look I can’t pull it apart after 2 minutes because the activator accelerator really makes the bond strong here’s where the seam is and if you look closely as I pull you can see the rubber is actually stretching and getting thinner but the bond is not coming apart
I guess my dentist should have glued the fake tooth in with this stuff instead of whatever he used I’m waiting for the screw in part to be done when the bone heals in my head so then I’m just going to wait until he screws the new one in now
Don has four different kinds of super glue there’s green blue, brown, and black they’re all basically the same stuff it’s just that each one is thicker the blue is medium which is 100 rating and the black is really high rating it’s thick, the black is the thickest, it’s rated at 1500 so you can use it on vertical things that you’re gluing if you don’t want to take something apart that’s hanging up you can put it vertically
because it won’t drip and Don told me a lot of Funeral Homes use it because it’s good with more moisture so they actually use it on people before they put them in a casket to put them back together again so they look better,
now I’m not gluing people back together but it is good for all kinds of users on cars now works
really well on plastic parts that are broken they’re a little more complicated so you have to do these steps you get the poly prep spray and you spray both sides of the crack saturate them then let them dry then you get the activator accelerator and spray only one side and then let that dry then you get a hairdryer and heat both sides for 30-40 seconds to make them more pliable then you get the SI blue and put it on the opposite side to the one you put the activator on, cover it all up then push it together and hold it for about 30 seconds, then wipe off any excess, then heat it up with hairdryer another 30 seconds and
then here we go.
I can’t pull it apart baby’s on there and I’ll tell you one of my big problems with super glue is if you keep them awhile it gets hard to bottle on it’s useless so Don told me the secret store the stuff in your
fridge I store mine here next to the welding rods it drives my wife nuts
Don guarantees it’s going to last for two years if you store it in the fridge it won’t get hard when you want to use it six months later and you get mad and Don at tech bond sounds like an honest guy to me he said if you buy it and you’re not satisfied he’ll return your money you can’t beat that, he’s just an American with a small company in Ohio that’s trying to make a better mousetrap so I wish him all the luck in the world, so if you want to try the new third generation of super glue when I give tech bond to try and remember if you have any car questions just visit the Scotty Kilmer channel and I’ll answer them as soon as I’m done recycling myself.
