Gorilla CA Glue

Has anyone tried this glue?? If so can you give us a review as opposed to other CA that you may have used in the past or present.

What kinds of projects would it be good for??? Do you think it would be a good glue for segmenting work and why or why not??? Thanks

I have not used Gorilla brand CA but I would not us CA glue for any segmented work. CA glue is brittle and does not hold up well to impact or to wood movement. This question has been asked on the segmented woodturning site and big resounding NO was the answer given by the very knowledgeable group.

I understand regular Titebond is the choice with woods but in the Pen making industry we use other materials for segmenting such as acrylics and metals. This is where CA has become the standard along with epoxy. I use Titebond on woods all the time. Just not for gluing to a metal tube.


I want to know before I buy this to try has anyone used it for finishing a pen??? Is it a thin or med CA??? Is it a colored CA or does it dry crystal clear??? Is it a brittle CA or a rubberized CA?? Thanks.

Never used it for finishing a pen. It's a medium CA. Dries clear. It doesn't appear to be brittle.
I use it for inlaying stone into cavities. It's cheaper than most other brands, however, I'd rather have a thinner formula.

I've used it for filling cracks and such with great results, it holds up well, and performs like most of your medium CA's you could buy from craftsupply or woodcraft. I will second everyone else on using titebond II or III for segmented work, I've used titebond for all my segmenting and have never had a failure.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I used it to finish a wooden ring and it seems to held up very well for the wearer. I used thin CA on my ring and it seems to scuff much faster, it could of course be that I'm grabbing my orbital sander to slow it down and forget I'm wearing my ring. But who know right?
