Loctite Super Glue Precision
Advantages: Sticks almost anything
Disadvantages: Can also stick skin together!
Super glue is one of those essentials to have in, and if I have run our you can guarentee I will need it. Loctite super glue is probably one of the better brands of super glue I have come across and I must prefer the liquidy sort of super glue than the thicker more jelly type.
A find a little Loctite goes a long way and I have to be careful not to squeeze too much out of the nozzle. The nozzle is very handy, at about 3cm long, getting narrower, like a cone towards the opening which means you can really get the nozzle into the part you need glueing.
I find that Loctite will stick pretty much anything together, including my fingers! It's good for plastic, rubber, wood etc. so I use it to sticks bits of the kid's toys back together, to stick the soles back onto the leather of shoes when they start to part, knobs back on cupboards that my kids have pulled off and the other day I stuck a glass jewel back onto my metal hair clip that fell out. After applying the glue I always hold the two broken parts together for a minute or so until the glue has really fixed tight.
I do have to be careful not to glue my fingers either to each other or to the item I am glueing, which both seem to be a frequent problem I gt when using super glue. I have always been able to tease my ringers apart by washing in warm soapy water, however I am then left with a hard "skin" on my fingers which can sometimes take a couple of days to fully come off.
There are guidelines and warning on the packaging it comes on, and on the tube too, only he they are in really small writing. As well as being careful about sticking yourself together you need to be careful about sniffing the vapours, which smell rather disgusting anyway!
My current Loctite is 7.5g, which comes in a bottle about 3cm high and 2cm wide, plus the nozzle on top. This tends to last me about 6 months or so, I rarely have to buy a new super glue when I go shopping. I think a bottle of Loctite costs around £3-£3.50.
I haven't found anything that Loctite won't stick together, it seems to be really versatile and stick almost any material together. I guess therefore I have to give it a 5!
