CA Glue

Cyanoacrylate Glue (CA Glue)

When an experienced woodworker tells a beginner that they’ll need CA glue, this question usually arises, “What is CA glue?” The CA in CA glue stands for “cyanoacrylate.” This type of glue creates a fast bond when it reacts to water. CA glue comes in a range of colors, including brown and black, so it blends well with the project.

CA Glues: More Than Just Superglue

Although many people think of superglue first, many other forms of CA glue also exist. The brand Stick Fast offers four adhesives using cyanoacrylate: thin, medium, thick, and flexible. Its products come in white or black. Zap offers thin, medium, thick, and easy-to-work-with gel. Both brands also offer an adhesive activator that sprays on over the application to cause almost-instant curing.
