Gorilla Super Glue

The tough, fast setting super glue.

Its high strength and quick set time make Gorilla Super Glue the go-to adhesive for a variety of household projects. Developed for long-lasting repairs in an instant, the clear glue dries in 10-45 seconds.

Our Super Glue is formulated for increased impact resistance to handle bumps and drops. We call it Impact-Toughbecause the reliable bond stands up to wear and tear. In addition to Gorilla Super Glue’s high-performance cyanoacrylate formula, we’ve added an anti-clog cap with a metal pin inside ensuring an airtight seal for maximum reusability. It’s Gorilla tough, every time.

How to use

1. Prepare
1. Prepare

Protect work area from spills. Clean and dry the surfaces to be bonded. For Super Glue tube only, puncture by placing cap and nozzle on the tube and tighten.

2. Apply

Squeeze a small drop of Gorilla Super Glue to every 6.5cm2 of surface. Excess glue can cause a delayed or failed bond.

Application temperature should be above 10˚C. Before finishing, sand surface to minimise glue exposure. Not recommended for structural or load-bearing applications, or for continuous submersion or below-waterline use.

2. Apply
3. Secure
3. Secure

Press two surfaces together for 10-45 seconds to achieve bond. Note that gaps and uneven surfaces may cause delayed bonding.

4. Clean up / Storage

After use, clean nozzle with a dry cloth and replace outer cap.

Store in a cool, dry place.

  • Why isn’t my bottle of Gorilla Super Glue filled to the top?

    For high performance and usability, the adhesive needs to be protected from air. One way to keep the air out of the adhesive is by packaging in thick plastic bottles. If the thicker plastic bottle was completely full of adhesive, it would be too hard to squeeze the glue out of the bottle.

  • How is Gorilla Super Glue different to Gorilla Glue?

    Gorilla Super Glue is a cyanoacrylate adhesive, while Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane. Unlike Gorilla Glue, Gorilla Super Glue does not require extended clamp time or moisture to activate. It does not foam during set up. In addition, Gorilla Super Glue is recommended primarily for indoor applications only and is ideal for smaller repairs that require an instant bond and projects where clamping is not needed.

  • What does Impact Tough™ mean?

    Gorilla Super Glue is designed with a specific formula to handle bumps and drops with a strong, reliable bond.

  • Will Gorilla Super Glue bond plastic/vinyl/rubber?

    Gorilla Super Glue has been engineered to achieve excellent results on difficult to bond substrates. It is formulated to bond a wide range of similar and dissimilar materials including most plastics, metals, elastomers, wood, and porous surfaces. Gorilla Super Glue requires some absorbed moisture on the bonding surfaces to cure. Certain difficult to bond plastics, such as polyethylene and polypropylene, have little to no moisture and will not form good bonds.

  • How do I remove Gorilla Super Glue from body/skin or separate bonded body/skin?

    To remove Gorilla Super Glue from your skin, soak the bonded area in warm, soapy water. Acetone may also be used according to the solvent manufacturer’s instructions (fingernail polish remover works well). The key is to be patient and NEVER pull the area apart. Gently wiggle the bonded area to allow the soapy water or acetone to penetrate the bond. After soaking, the adhesive should come off easily. Keep in mind that acetone can strip your skin of oils, so apply moisturizer after removal.

  • How do I remove Gorilla Super Glue from my surface?

    To remove uncured Gorilla Super Glue, use a towel dampened with acetone or isopropyl alcohol to blot the area. Several applications may be necessary to completely remove the uncured glue. For removal of cured Gorilla Super Glue from the surface of your project, soak bonded area with warm soapy water or acetone. The adhesive should begin to soften, but many applications may be necessary. Keep in mind that isopropyl alcohol and acetone can damage some surface materials, such as countertops and some plastics. Always test in a small, unseen area first.

  • Is Gorilla Super Glue food safe?

    Gorilla Super Glue is not intended for any application with direct or indirect food contact and should not be stored near food or in the refrigerator. Gorilla Super Glue contains no solvents, but has a strong odour. To avoid irritation, use in areas that have adequate air movement and ventilation.

  • What should I do if I think a human or animal ingested Gorilla Super Glue?
