Helpful Tips

  • 1

    To get a good bond, make sure the surface is clean and dry before applying.

  • 2

    Do not use too much - just enough to cover the area you intend to bond with a thin coat of adhesive.

  • 3

    Squeeze the two substrates you are bonding together tightly for 30 seconds.

  • 4

    Wipe away any excess or “squeeze out” with a dry paper towel.

  • 5

    If you didn’t get the placement right to start, you can pull the two materials apart and realign them before applying another 30 seconds of pressure.

  • 6

    Set your repair down and walk away while it cures in 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Just enough to cover the area you intend to bond with a thin coat of adhesive. Use less on non-porous substrates like metal, glass or plastic. Use slightly more on porous substrates like wood or ceramics. Apply glue to only one surface, not both sides. You can use the two surface you are joining or the precision tip applicator of the bottle to spread the adhesive, but make sure when you press the substrates together to remove any excess.

The two surfaces have to touch with pressure for 30 seconds. If you can’t make the materials touch, you will not get a good bond. Try using a clamp if you can’t keep the substrates together with just your hands. Leave the clamp on for at least 5 minutes to make sure you get a good bond, or for a full 30 minutes for a cured repair.

RapidFuse will set after 30 seconds of strong pressure at which point you can set your repair down and walk away while it cures in 30 minutes. However, if you didn’t get the placement right to start you can pull the two materials apart and realign them before applying another 30 seconds of pressure to set it.

The reposition time will vary by substrate. A non-porous substrate like metal or glass will set much faster and give a shorter reposition time. Porous substrates like wood can be repositioned for 3 minutes. On materials like metal, glass and ceramics, don’t apply pressure for 30 seconds until you have the lineup of your materials perfect.

If RapidFuse adhesive doesn’t cure in 30 minutes, then it's likely you over-applied. Simply get a dry paper towel and remove the excess adhesive so it can cure properly and give it another 30 minutes. A good rule of thumb is if it’s shiny – then it’s still wet.

Use Acetone nail polish remover to get cured RapidFuse off your skin. Make sure it is Acetone nail polish remover. The non-acetone stuff won’t work. Wash your hands first to remove any un-cured adhesive with soap and water. Then wipe with an acetone soaked cotton pad. Do not try to pull or peel RapidFuse off.
