Bob Smith Industries IC-GEL is a cyanoacrylate paste that is extremely thick which comes in an applicator tube like toothpaste. It has the same bonding and curing time characteristics as Bob Smith Industries Maxi-Cure IC-GEL, although it can be applied to a vertical surface and will stay in place and it will not run. This can be very convenient for some assembly applications. Applying CA to the bottom of a horizontal surface, such as a ceiling, can be very difficult with anything other than a full standard CA bottle. IC-GEL can be applied at any angle with just a squeeze of the tube. The gel does, however, have a tendency to continue to come out of the tube for about a second after pressure is released, so this must be taken into account to apply the exact amount of IC-GEL that you want. It's popular with those who either assemble fishing tanks or need to patch a crack in one.
Guaranteed Fresh! Our products don't sit in a warehouse for months, but rather days. We order on a bi-weekly basis from Bob Smith Industries so you are getting some of the freshest cyanoacrylate possible!

IC-GEL's most popular application is for the bonding of fragments of live coral (frags) to underwater rocks in aquariums. It has proven to be non-toxic to aquatic organisms and provides instant bonding for the propagation of the coral. IC-Gel has a superior shelf life of over three years and its application nozzle makes it the easiest of all CAs to apply. Refer to the chart below for product uses.
