Permabond 101 Cyanoacrylate Super Glue Instant Adhesive is a one component, ultra-low viscosity, fast curing adhesive that is ideal for bonding tight fitting and pre-assembled parts. It develops fast, strong bonds with a variety of materials such as metals, rubber, and plastics. Permabond 101 is useful in wicking or penetrating applications or bonding closely fitting parts. Surfaces should be clean, dry and grease-free before applying the adhesive. Use a suitable solvent (such as acetone or isopropanol) for the degreasing of surfaces. Some metals such as aluminium, copper and its alloys will benefit from light abrasion with emery cloth (or similar), to remove the oxide layer.

Features and Benefits

  • Ultra-low viscosity
  • Suitable for bonding pre-assembled parts
  • Ideal for close-fitting plastic components

Approved to MIL-A-46050C Type II Class 1 (existing designs) & CID A-A-3097 Type II Class 1 (new designs)

Physical Properties of Uncured Adhesive

Chemical Composition Ethyl Cyanoacrylate
Appearance Colorless/Clear
Viscosity @ 25°C 2-3 mPa.s (cP)
Specific Gravity 1.1

Typical Curing Properties

Maximum gap fill 0.05 mm (0.002 in)
Fixture/Handling time *

(0.3 N/mm^2 shear strength is achieved)

3-5 seconds (Steel)

2-5 seconds (Buna N Rubber)

5-10 seconds (Phenolic)

Full strength 24 hours

*Handling times can be affected by temperature, humidity and specific surfaces being bonded. Larger gaps or acidic surfaces will also reduce cure speed but this can be overcome by the use of Permabond C Surface Activator (CSA) or Permabond QFS 16.
