Bob Smith's Insta-Flex flexible thin CA is ideal for many applications, including the installation of CA hinges. When cured, Insta-Flex will not turn brittle and remains clear, even when accelerated with Insta-Set Accelerator. In addition, it has superior shock resistance and although not as thin in consistency as Insta-Cure, Insta-Flex still has good penetrating qualities, and its application can be easier to control. For CA hinges, Bob Smith Industries recommends drilling a 1/16" hole in the center of the hinge slots to insure the complete saturation of the hinge when Inta-Flex is applied.
Insta-Flex has also proven to be superior when bonding anodized aluminum. Guaranteed Fresh! Our products don't sit in a warehouse for months, but rather days. We order on a bi-weekly basis from Bob Smith Industries so you are getting some of the freshest cyanoacrylate possible! When using Bob Smith Industries Insta-Flex, it's important to note that this cyanoacrylate glue gives of a vapor that may irritate the eyes and nose, but Insta-Flex has a different and less irritating odor compared to regular CA's. However, while it gives off a different odor, it is not foam safe. Refer to the chart below for product uses.
