Quick Overview

IC-Gel Insta Cure Cyanoacrylate Gel comes in 20 gram tubes and is a widely used super glue within the hobby. With its quick dry time, and extra thick consistency you can use the IC-Gel on vertical surfaces and it will not run. It is great for heavier frags that you need to stand vertical or heavier rock work. IC-Gel comes in a tube like toothpaste which makes it very easy to dispense the amount needed, and when it comes down to the last few drops you can still get it out, unlike the harder plastic bottles.

Product Questions

Can I use this in an established reef without having any effects of my livestock?
Question by: Garnett on Jul 14, 2016 9:34:00 AM
Hi Garnett,
You can utilize the Insta-Cure Cyanoacrylate super glue in an established reef tank without any issues. Some people do notice that different types of adhesives may cause their skimmer to go nutty for a few hours but your livestock should not be hindered in any way.

Full Details

Super glue (cyanoacrylate) is widely used for mounting coral frags to plugs, rocks, and what ever you may need to attach them to. Super glue can also be used to bond rock work when aquascaping for a seamless look. We find that if larger gaps are needed to be bridged when aquascaping either building up layers of glue, or placing a smaller rock that fits in the gap and then gluing over the top works really well. Usually when using super glue with aquascaping we will take a small amount of large grain sand to help give the glue some texture and blend it into the rock as well.

    This gel glue is great stuff,& works great
  • quality glue By anthony p. on 1/9/2017

    definitely pick up a tube or 2 if you haven't tried this glue yet, you wont be disappointed. Its perfect for mounting frags and live rock. You can use it when mounting larger pieces of rock while you wait for the epoxy of choice to set. its a nice thick get that doesn't run all over and it comes with 2 tips that are perfectly matched.
  • Great stuff !!! By jhmeresqu on 12/1/2016

    This gel glue is great stuff, works well even without their accelerator......I find it as good as the Ecotech glue and it lasts longer after being open than the Ecotech glue which tends to dry faster in the bottle after being opened.
  • Great product By Tvos on 11/10/2016

    I have used brs glue for years and still do its a great product , the reason I bought this is for the fast cure activator for my larger pieces.
  • It worked By Naso69 on 10/31/2016

    It was harder to use than i expected for securing rock structures, but it did secure the rock when i could get it to stay in place. Probably work real well for fragging
  • Best Glue Ever By Lacy on 9/1/2016

    I have been using ic-gel for years.Tried other glues and they either dry out or clog and you can't get them to unclog. I don't even bother trying other glues anymore. I will only use this glue. I buy 5 or 6 at a time since my husband now uses it in the garage.
  • Great stuff! By Landon on 8/26/2016

    This stuff works great for thicker application needs such as mounting a fresh SPS frag on a plug upright and for creating an underwater bubble and using it to fortify things on my live rock and corals. I would not recommend using it to frag soft corals, the thinner "regular" glue works better for that purpose in my experience, it bonds better. Mushrooms will come loose more often using the gel. It's best to have some of both types!
  • Great Glue By Will on 8/14/2016

    I have used putty and the cheap glue that comes with my frag kit. This glue works great... My gobby and snails have not knocked off my pieces fragged like before. Well worth the little money
  • Excellent By Lukas on 7/1/2016

    Metal tube doesn't suck back in air or water. Sets fast, holds tight and hasn't let go yet. I loved the fact that my tube came with two tips because we all know the cap is getting stuck to at least one of them.
  • Best glue I have ever used By Mike on 6/3/2016

    Doesn't clog, doesn't let go. Best glue I have ever used. Sets up really fast in water and doesn't let the frag go when it's set.

    Make sure that you don't leave glue on the tip when screwing the cap back on! I wasted half a tube once that way lol

    This is the only glue I will use now.
