2P-10 RT Gel! Great stuff No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I recently got and used 2P-10 Ca Gel Glue. I need something that will hold fast and set up very fast to continue working on a piece. I tried every sort of HOT GLUE under the sun They all popped off.

So I watched a few videos on this CA Glue called 2P-10 which uses an activators to set in seconds. It comes in 4-5 different viscosities but seems everyone uses the gel so that’s what I got with a can of activator.

In fact they have a gel with rubberized particles in to so its some what flexible so I got that.

Most folks I watched online use regular wood glue such as Tightbond2 with a couple of drops of 2p-10. You spread the titebond where you normally would leaving a clear area SMALL for the CA glue on one side of the glue up then spray the activator on the other side slap em together and within tens seconds the bond is tight and you can keep on working with the piece as the titebond set for a few hours.

I would clamp mine and go clean for for no more than a minute to came back and take the clamps off and go to work.

I got a happy surprise where the setup gives you a few seconds to move it around but right at about 1o seconds it is as tight as Richards Hatband. GLORIOUS!

I have not done any strength tests but i know what the titebond 2 is going to do. I consider the 2P-10 a CLAMP.

The GEL I got seems a little too think I may get the next thinner one next time. ALSO the labeling says more than once to keep in a cool dry place and refrigerate if not going to use more than a week. Seems it might have a drying up issues but we will see.

ALSO not the activator seems like it MAY mare some finishes. It did not on mine but is seems it could so be careful with it.

ALL is good so far/

Interesting…
I just wonder if the Titebond will penetrate correctly to glue up properly, and how strong is the dynamic strength of the 2P-10. I guess you will find out soon enough as you move along with your projects.
Little follow up later would be cool…

If it is great stuff, seems like a possible solution for segmented bowl makers.

Well the spots I put the 2P-10 on were no bigger than M&M.

I think he’s using the 2P-10 like a tack weld, small area, just enough to hold the piece while the larger areas of TiteBond cures.

I might also add that you can use the glue like any other glue and put it all together clamp away make sure everything is good then Spray it with the activator and POW solid weld

Thanks for the information. I have tried CA glues in the past and not gotten the expected results. I will give this a try.
