Loctite® Super Glue Gives You Control

Super glue is usually seen as a handy adhesive that comes with a series of aggravations: it does not allow for adjustment upon contact, it is hard to dispense accurately -- in many cases, winding up on fingers, and adhesive residue in the nozzle can clog the tube, rendering it useless after the initial opening. To address these problems, Henkel created the Loctite® Control Super Glue line, giving crafters, scrapbookers and hobbyists a tool that allows them to adhere a variety of items quickly with ease and pinpoint precision.
LAS VEGAS (January 30 - February 2) -- Super glue is usually seen as a handy adhesive that comes with a series of aggravations: it does not allow for adjustment upon contact, it is hard to dispense accurately - in many cases, winding up on fingers, and adhesive residue in the nozzle can clog the tube, rendering it useless after the initial opening. To address these problems, Henkel created the Loctite® Control Super Glue line, giving crafters, scrapbookers and hobbyists a tool that allows them to adhere a variety of items quickly with ease and pinpoint precision.

The Loctite® Control Super Glue applicator is an innovation in gluing efficiency. The patented squeeze-grip sides let crafters and hobbyists pinpoint the glue flow and placement, while keeping fingers away from the glue. The self-standing container also prevents glue from oozing onto work surfaces and keeps the glue away from the nozzle for continued clog-free performance.

The Loctite® Control Super Glue line with this innovative applicator features three distinct formulas: Gel, Goof Proof™, and Liquid.

  • Loctite® Control Gel Super Glue eliminates the oozing and dripping associated with traditional liquid super glues. The No Mess Gel formula is ideal for drip-free vertical applications and does not soak into porous surfaces for improved bonding.
  • Loctite® Control Goof-Proof Super Glue uses a formulation that affords super glue users the most working time, eliminating the need to rush and reducing the risk of mistakes when gluing. This extra time allows for repositioning and precision alignment of surfaces, making it ideal for exact repairs on items such as porcelain dolls, china and jewelry. The final bond provides the same super strength as traditional Loctite® super glues.
  • Loctite® Control Liquid Super Glue features an extra strength formula that gives maximum strength in a minimum amount of time, with an improved resistance to shock and vibration.
  • Loctite® Control Gel, Loctite® Control Liquid and Loctite® Control Goof-Proof products in the patented dispenser are all available at a variety of grocery, drugstores, home hardware, mass market and specialty stores for a suggested retail price of $3.49.
