Vital Bond

  • Type - Cyanoacrylate (Super Glue)
  • Thick for bonding porous materials, where gap filling is required.


This is a thick super glue designed to be use with porous materials such as woods and for gap filling.

I tried this on some metal parts where I wanted to ensure the glue covered the whole joint and it went together very well. I put a small amount on the outside surface of the bearing and then smeared it with a piece of plastic around the surface. As I pushed the bearing it I rotated it so as to try and ensure that the surfaces were evenly coated.

Price: approx 3.99 for 20g


Works very well. I have only tried it on metal to metal as yet, but will update this with later findings.

Available at or most local hobby shops.
