GLUEDEVIL Superglue 10M is a medium viscosity modified Ethyl Cyanoacrylate adhesive. GD-10M is suitable for bonding a very wide range of materials, including some porous ones, where a fast cure speed is required.
GLUEDEVIL 10M is specially formulated for the bonding of plastics, rubbers, wood, paper, leather, metals and other common substrates. GD-10M relies less on surface moisture for cure speed than standard cyanoacrylates. Recommended for use on close fitting parts and fairly smooth, even surfaces.

Cure speed vs. Substrate:
The speed of cure of cyanoacrylates varies according to the substrates to be bonded. Acidic surfaces such as paper and leather will have longer cure times than most plastics and rubbers. Some plastics with very low surface energies, such as polyethylene, polypropylene and Teflon® require the use of a primer.
Cure speed vs. Bond gap:
GlueDevil cyanoacrylates give best results on close fitting parts, the product should be applied in a very thin line in order to ensure rapid polymerisation and a strong bond. Excessive bond gaps will result in slower cure speeds. Activators may be used to greatly increase cure speeds.
Cure speed vs. Environmental Conditions:
Cyanoacrylate adhesives require surface moisture on the substrates in order to initiate the curing mechanism. The speed of cure is reduced in low humidity conditions. Low temperatures will also reduce cure speed. All figures relating to cure speed are tested at 21°C.
Cure speed vs. Activator:
Activators may be used in conjunction with GlueDevil cyanoacrylates where cure speed needs to be accelerated. Cure speeds of less than 2 seconds can be obtained with most Glue Devil cyanoacrylates. The use of an activator can reduce the final bond strength by up to 30% – Glue Devil recommends testing on the parts to measure the effect.
GlueDevil cyanoacrylate adhesives are suitable for use at temperatures up to 80°C. At 80°C the bond will be approximately 70% of the strength at 21°C. The bond strength at 100°C is approximately 50% of full strength at 21°C.
GlueDevil cyanoacrylates retain over 90% of their strength when heated to 80°C for 90 days and then tested at 21°C. Heating the bond to 100°C and then testing at 21°C gives bond strength of approximately 50% of initial strength.
Chemical / Solvent Resistance
GlueDevil cyanoacrylates exhibit excellent chemical resistance to most oils and solvents including motor oil, leaded petrol, ethanol, propanol and Freon. Cyanoacrylates are not resistant to high levels of moisture or humidity over time.
For safe handling of this product consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
Cured cyanoacrylate may be removed from most substrates and parts disassembled, with Acetone. It is not possible to fully remove cyanoacrylate from fabrics.
Bond speed is very fast so ensure that parts are properly aligned before bonding.
Activators may be required if there are gaps or porous surfaces. Some plastics may require application of a Primer.
Ensure parts are clean, dry and free from oil and grease.
Product is normally hand applied from the bottle. Apply sparingly to one surface and press parts firmly together until handling strength is achieved. As a general rule, as little cyanoacrylate as possible should be used – over application will result in slow cure speed and lower bond strength.
Please contact your GlueDevil representative for further advice on dispensing solution.
Store in a cool area out of direct sunlight. Refrigeration to 5°C gives optimum storage stability.
