Rhino glue?

Has anyone ever used 'Rhino Glue' for plastic modeling?
It is a cyanoacrylate based cement and can be mixed with baking soda to
make a filler.
They also have a fast dry putty.

It's new to me . If it does all that they claim then it will be a winner.
I use Loctite 406 ,but still have the problems with the nozzle blocking and it going off in the bottle ,despite keeping it in the refridgerator.

A longer shelf life, less brittleness, and compatibility with more materials according to the website. I just ordered one of the starter kits.

kevin Your procedure for keeping super glue is o.k. but try this out 1st. when finishing up with gluing.. look at the see thru nozzle to see if any glue is stuck , by tapping the bottom of the glue bottle it goes back into the bottle 2nd clean the tip I use wax paper 3rd replace cap 4th place in the butter section of the ice box up straight. 5th when you want to use it again it may take just a few seconds longer about 10 seconds to dry but it will work richard

The big difference is it is "distilled" it's pure glue. I will be selling this product in my industrial supply business within the next few weeks. I'm pretty sure we will be getting a nice discount. For those regulars in this newsgroup who would like to buy some, shoot me an email and I will pass along my discounted cost to you. Our intention is to buy in case lots often and store it in a fridge so that our supply is always freash. (:>

Cyanoacrylate glue is catalyzed by water vapor, so if you want to keep it in the fridge you're well advised to keep it in an airtight container like a jar, preferably with some dessicating/drying agent. I just use the little silica gel drying packets they put in everything these days, i have enough so that i keep a bunch sitting on top of a lamp so that they are dried out and every now and then I swap them for the ones in the jar. Another widely used dessicant is powdered milk.

Al, Maybe you could post a running report on this glue ,to see if it is as good as they claim .Then I might consider getting some over from your side of the pond.
Cheers

I do the things you have noted ,but other people in the household also use my glue and they take less care (no care) with the storage and cleaning procedures. I now have a refridgerator in my workshop for keeping all my glues , silicone , beer and stuff that is affected by high temperatures and humidity and also use by other persons , so hopefully I will have less problems in future.

The air tight container and dessicant sound good I'll give it a try. I think baking soda will also work as a dessicant, I know it works to absorb bad odours in the fridge. Thanks for the headsup.

LOL, just don't mix any baking soda with your CA glue. You'll end up with a real heated situation.
I might as well give away my little CA secret.
I don't ever cut the nozzle open - I keep it sealed. I decant the glue as-needed by using a straw and my finger. I deposit it in a shallow dimple made form aluminum foil. Then I use needle applicators to transfer the glue from that dimple to wherever I need it
Right after decanting I gently spray some Extend-It gas into the CA bottle and then I screw the cap back on tightly. Extend-It is an air displacing inert gas used to extend life of moisture sensitive polyurethane resins. It replaces the moist air with inert gas. Perfect way to extend life of CA adhesive.
For jobs which need larger amounts of glue or a pointed applicator I keep handy those little tube 4-packs of CA glue from Home Depot. They are so tiny that if once I open one it hardens up on me - no big deal.
Cat is out of the bag now! :-)
Enjoy! Peteski

Well it just so happens I have a can of that extend stuff . Ca dries fast here because of the ambient temps and the moisture in the air.I normally dispense a drop onto a glass plate and use a needle eye to place the glue where I want it, in a minute or less the drop has gone gooey or hard.

Gorilla Glue is moisture activated. Put it on one surface and dampen the other. Foams up but it sets up rock hard and strong. I used it to reattach a portion of a cinder block fence in my back yard. Dang that IS strong stuff! I've got to try their Gorilla Tape next.
