Product description

Starbond EM-02 Super Fast Thin CA glue is a "wicking type" ethyl cyanoacrylate super glue. This watery-thin, instant adhesive is commonly used to repair cracks and hairline fractures because of its ability to easily penetrate narrow spaces. Starbond Super Fast Thin CA glue is well suited for strengthening porous, fragile material such as soft wood (balsa), ceramics, unpolished rocks and minerals, and fossil bones. During inlay applications such as turquoise inlays or metal powder inlays, the thin viscosity CA glue penetrates and stabilizes the powder through capillary action. Thin CA glues are often used as a finish by applying several coats, sanding, and then polishing to a high gloss.

Use of Starbond Accelerator is advised when saturation of a porous object is unwanted. The instant cure will prevent Starbond EM-02 Super Fast Thin CA Glue from excessively soaking into the porous object, and prevent waste.

Used In:

  • Repairing and filling cracks, inclusions, voids, and knots in wood
  • Woodturning and knife handle finishes for a hard, clear, and waterproof coat
  • Wicking into and stabilizing guitar frets
  • Installing bindings and purflings on stringed instruments
  • Gluing and repairing guitar inlays on the headstock, body, and fretboard
  • Fossil preparation through infiltration and stabilization of the fossil before extraction
  • Repairing small cracks in stone
  • Metal and turquoise inlays
  • Jewelry manufacturing and repair
  • Furniture refinishing and antique repair

Inlay with thin
Starbond thin em-02 has been by far the best when it comes to my forms with inlay , it works super great in setting the stone in a void on my turning,a shot of accelerator and I’m ready for the build up of medium ca . The micro tips are also a nice addition when you need pin point accuracy.
I’ve used all types of glue on the market and none compare to starbond, I highly recommend this product and there shipping is fast , they never let me down when I am in need.

Long lasting
I started using this as a recommendation from a friend. It has worked beyond my expectations. Not only have I found it useful in the shop it’s kept me as Superman to my kids for being able to fix a whole host of toys and trinkets! I use this weekly and it has lasted a very long time and hasn’t gone bad or dried out. Super fine application tips are YUGE!

Glass-like finish
I am really impressed with the thin CA glue from Starbond. I am a novice turner/woodworker and it was extremely easy to use. Much easier than random CA from the store. People are surprised when I tell them the glass-like finish is from glue. I highly recommend it!

Custom wood lathe finish awesome
Bought the thin starbond ca glue to try out scene I run out of the one I usually use for doing finishes on my projects I turn on the lathe and was very impressed with it, it rub on very easy a wet sanded nicely. It built up multiple coats very good also and left a really nice and clear finish on my wine bottle stopper. I will be using starbond from here on thanks for making a great product

Highly recommended!!!!!!!!

Awesome product for the turner
I mostly do turnings but also do some flat work. I have found Starbond adhesives to be exceptionally strong and fast setup- using your accelerator. The thin product is superior for stabilizing soft spots when turning. It also makes a fantastic pen finish.

Duck Call finish like glass
Starbond has become my go to CA for the ultimate glass look finish on my duck calls. I build layers to desired thickness and wet sand through 2000 grit then use a buffing wheel. I also love medium or black for filling bigger voids. I mostly back voids with African Blackwood dust then a drop or two of CA into the dust which bonds nicely. I then turn or sand down depending on the size. Great product that also includes neat tips for spotting drops accurately.

Highly recommended!!!

This stuff is amazing for stone inlay
Ive tried many many different companies of CA and hands down starbond is the best. Ive been doing stone inlay for 3 years now on a moderate scale and every time Ive called with a tech question theyve helped me.

Best Super Glue on the Market
I have been using Starbond for over a year now and it is the only CA Glue I use. Their customer service is outstanding as well.

This is the Good Stuff
There is a major difference in results if you compare starbond cyanoacrylate to other cyanoacrylates. Whatever else starbond adds to there glue is why it's so "super". I was using "Cheap" Cyanoacrylate before, we just finished some R&D focused on the gluing part of our manufacturing processes, and ever since we switched over to Starbonds we've seen real results in our product manufacturing. We are switching over to only starbond.

Perfect for hardening chipboard
Starbond Fast Thin CA Glue EM-02 is my new favorite supply for creating detailed miniatures. I build layers of extremely thin chipboard into complex miniature architectural components, and harden everything with Starbond. It creates exactly the stability required while hardening the once flimsy material to a wood-like toughness, without causing any warping whatsoever. I am hooked!
