INSTA-SET™ is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. INSTA-SET™ in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with INSTA-SET™ significantly enhances a joint’s strength. For difficult to bond materials, INSTA-SET™ can be applied to one surface and CA to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. INSTA-SET™ is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam.
IC-GEL’s™ most popular application is for the bonding of fragments of live coral (frags) to underwater rocks in aquariums. It has proven to be non-toxic to aquatic organisms and provides instant bonding for the propagation of the coral. IC-Gel has a superior shelf life of over three years and its application nozzle makes it the easiest of all CAs to apply.
