cyano
« on: October 05, 2018, 18:22:06 PM »
Happened to be in Toolstation this afternoon to pick up something the meme-sahib had ordered. Whilst waiting I browsed the catalogue and noticed that they had 50g bottles of cyano (thick and thin) for only 2.32 each, so as I had just run out of thick (and needed more for Project Anon) I bought some.

I can report that it sticks like, well, erm...cyano. Indistinguishable from medium zap in use.

They also had a 200g aerosol of kicker for under four quid. That works as well.

Don't forget to store it in the fridge. That sort of volume might take a while to use. Good find though.
I'm not allowed to use the commercial activator as SWMBO suffers from asthma and it causes a sever allergic reaction. I now make my own activator from a water and baking soda solution in a mist spray.. Works just as well and free.

While cyano has it's uses but for me, alphabetic aliphatic resin is much better.  :af

I was passing again today, so I dropped in and picked up some of the "thin" cyano. It's not as thin as most, but it seems to be almost thoxitropic - you put a drop on wood and it seems to suddenly thin and soak into a joint. I used it alot for the upper decking work on Project Anon. Seems excellent value...

Sorry to intrude but what sort of aliphatic do you use Saint? The stuff I've bought in the past has dried like thin Copydex or turned dark brown over time.

One of the best cyanos you can get is Screwfix own brand mitre mate.its thick, comes with a tin of kicker and is superb stuff. Dead cheap too. For thin Cyano I use pound shop stuff.

It's been some years since I've done any building but I've used this with success.

I had a bit of domestic repair to do - my sister-in-law's Staffie cannoned into a side-table and cracked the rather thin wood in several places. I bought some aliphatic glue, only to find it wasn't what I expected - much too viscous to "capillary" into the cracks prior to clamping. Then I remembered from my building planes days that my favourite glue was "Superphatic". So I got some.

It is water-like, dives into cracks and gaps, and dries pretty much clear. Grabs quickly and is very strong. The table lives to be the dog's target again!
