FAB FIND: Daiso Japan's Strong Cyanoacrylate Adhesive

It is my belief (well, in my opinion anyway) that every home should always have some type of strong glue in their arsenal of repair tools.  They are absolutely fantastic pieces of equipment.  Doesn't cost too much and is useful for simple repairs.

But the gripe I have with most super glue brands is how watery it is.  Using it on paper is a chore (what with the paper absorbing the glue and all).  Worse off, it tends to run everywhere (because of its texture)!

Now 3M's Super Glue Gel (blogged about it before) is not as runny and is much more effective in spot binding pieces.  But for a cheaper (but still effective) alternative, I use Daiso Japan's Strong Cyanoacrylate Adhesive.

Daiso Japan's Strong Cyanoacrylate Adhesive is also a bit runny but what makes it different is, instead of using a nozzle applicator, it uses a brush for better spot-on binding!


Think liquid paper applicators of the 80's and 90's (or do they still have those now?)  :)


Adhesive properties are fantastic, too!  I've used it to repair a number of items made from various materials (plastics, ceramics, etc).  Hasn't failed me yet.  And did I mention it dries clear?!  Not like most super glue brands that react to the materials being binded and leaves a white residue.

Not bad for S$2.00 (approx Php68).
