  • Thick, pasty super glue that’s perfect for porous surfaces or larger bonding gaps.
  • Slow curing to allow for position correction after applying the glue.
  • Strong cyanoacrylate adhesive which works with most surfaces and materials.

Weicon VA Contact Gel Super Glue is a special kind of cyanoacrylate adhesive made in Germany. This type is really thick and paste like so it can be applied very accurately and will work on porous materials like sponge, cork or foam. It can also be applied to vertical surfaces without running and can be used to cover larger gaps than most industrial super glues.

The sections below expand on the various features and capabilities of this professional quality super glue. 

(Very) High Viscosity Glue.

Contact Gel Cyanoacrylate has a viscosity of 60.000 - 90.000 mPa·s (at 20°C according to Brookfield). We classify this as a high viscosity which means this glue is quite thick and pasty. This allows it to be applied quite accurately to complex bond lines and slows the cure time.

The thick nature of Weicon Contact Gel also makes it suitable for use in bonding porous materials (like cork, leather or fabric) and for covering larger gaps (0.2mm) than many other types of runnier glue.

Slower Cure.

Weicon VA Contact Gel Super Glue is slow curing (at least by super glue standards) which allows you to reposition parts after you’ve applied the glue. This is ideal when working with small, difficult to align parts when building models, assembling electronics or working in confined spaces. 

Initial adhesion times vary depending on the environment and the materials you’re bonding but you can expect something like 20-30 seconds for rubber or 40-80 seconds on PVC. It will be fully cured after about 24 hours (assuming 23°C temperature and 50% relative humidity).

Temperature & Environmental Resistance.

Once fully cured, Our Contact Gel Glue will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures between -50°C and +80°C.

Squatting temperature is +150°C.

Applications for Contact Gel Super Glue

  • Model making.
  • Bonding leather.
  • Bonding rubberised or plasticised sponge or foam.
  • Bonding cork or porous sealing materials.
  • Gluing cloths and woven materials.
  • Fixing cables and leads in electronics (it has high dielectric strength).
  • Gluing balsa wood .
  • Bonding objects to vertical surfaces.
  • Gluing objects that require high precision placement.

Where should I keep the container if I don’t use it all at once?

Cyanoacrylates are best kept refrigerated (especially in Australia). Make sure the lid is on tight (air tight in fact) and keep the pen in the fridge is our suggestion. That’ll extend the usable life significantly.

Will this stick fabric?

Usually, yes. The only reason we won’t say so unequivocally is there are some plasticised fabrics out there that are very hard to bond (such as anything made by Gore which tends to involve Teflon). For almost anything else, yes this is the ideal glue to use thanks to its thickness.

Can I apply this to vertical surfaces?

Yes. Contact Gel Super Glue is so thick and pasty that you'll be able to apply it to these surfaces without it running.
