nope.I wait a day for it too dry and loose the smell.It drys in under 2 minutes.gorilla glue is great stuff.Do you get fogging from the fumes on the surfaces?
Once cured with time I think superglue would be plenty safe.
people have used it to seal up injuries on T's.
Very interesting and informative post! :clap:Heh. 'Liquid Bandage' and 'Superglue' are very nearly the same thing; the former was invented because people were already using 'Superglue' as a liquid bandage. The medical grade stuff doesn't break down as quick and supposedly doesn't sting as much, and is more flexible, and doesn't get hot as it cures, but either one's safe on a surface wound.
The reason the fumes are irritating is that the stuff works kinda like a two-part epoxy, except the hardener is water. This is way cool, because it means you can use it under water, or inside a person's arteries. BUT it also means that when the fumes get in your eyes or throat the moisture there hardens them into irritating glue-grit. Possibly briefly hot glue grit if it's regular super-glue. But the stuff isn't really toxic unless you heat it up and it depolymerizes.
People use regular old 'Superglue' (or 'Krazyglue' or whatever cyanoacrylate glue brand is cheap that week) directly on live corals all the time, right in the tank next to anemones, and I suspect that those inverts are much more sensitive than a big spider.
Actually, Liquid bandage is a blanket name for them all. Band-Aid brand liquid bandage is cyanoacrylate based. I believe the alcohol based product is Nexcare.I did some digging to to see if I could add clarification. The only real difference between Super Glue and Liquid Bandage is the use of alcohol as a solovent in liquid bandage to dissolve the polymer. Super Glue uses something completly different. Other than some quality control differences, they appear to be very similar.
I fell for that one. Lost one of my T's and the other had to be ICU'd for a week or two and still hasn't been right. Pulled all of those stupid backs and haven't had a single issue since.I learned in the silicone thread how many people are quick to believe a moron that glues substrate to board as "knowledge" of silicone.
