The accident and emergency departments of this country are certainly no stranger to the curse of superglue. It is quite a regular occurrence to find a child or even an adult coming into the department with something stuck to some part of them or even some of their body parts stuck together though misadventure. This is a shame because most of these incidents can be avoided with a little care. It’s not like you have to use metal bonding adhesive which really are very strong and are perfect for any bonding of metallic substances that you need gluing, but it is worth looking at reviews of metal bonding adhesives to see whether they are most suitable for your project as using the wrong product is the biggest cause of problems and accidents, along with improper use. Let’s look at some of the ways that you can prevent any issues from occurring.
First of all it is a very good idea to use a simple tool that the glue comes with. These are just a few pages of instructions and it is always a good rule to familiarise yourself with them before you start to get down to the actual gluing itself. Read the instruction even if you do not bother to follow them is something of a watchword of mine and I think that when it comes to extremely strong bonding material it might very well be a good idea that you do follow the instructions closely and make sure that you treat the product with great care.
When you consider that superglue was originally intended to bond skin wounds together in wartime it should not be much of surprise that if you get in on your skin then it’s extremely likely that when the stuff sets it is going to set very hard. The most common problem is the gluing together of fingers over anything else. As we generally use our fingers to manipulate the tube to get the glue out this is pretty understandable. One option is to use gloves but that might create the problem where the gloves themselves become stuck to the object that you are attempting to fix. Lamentably this is sometimes the case but you can always console yourself that gloves being stuck are much better than skin. One way to avoid this happening altogether is to use the substance sparingly so that you do not have a lot of it seeping out of the connecting pieces you are trying to glue. You do not need a huge amount of glue, after all it is super.
If you do find yourself stuck then there are two course of action. Firstly you might want to just pull the fingers apart or from the object. You will take off a layer of skin but it is the top layer and a plaster will suffice. If it’s too much then it’s time to reach for the acetone or nail polish remover to slowly melt the glue and you can prise yourself free.a
