Why does BRS recommend this?
For the price, the extra thick super glue is a great value. Employees at BRS choose to use the 20-gram tube for its ease of use and being able to get every last drop out. The extra thick super glue is slightly thicker than most traditional thick super glue.
Choose from 3 different sizes:
- 1 oz bottle
- 20 g tube
- 10 oz bottle (includes two dispensing tips)
BRS offers the glue in two types, Extra Thick Gel and Thick Gel. Both are very inexpensive so we suggest trying both, you will find each one is best for different applications. We also offer the glue in 20-gram tubes which some reefers find more convenient.
Extra Thick Gel - This is an extremely thick gel which works well when you need to fill uneven surfaces to bond them together or stand frags vertically.
Thick Gel - This is a thick glue somewhere between normal super glue and extra thick gel. We find this to dry faster and work best when you have to flat surfaces to bond.
BRS Extra Thick Gel Super Glue is 100% reef safe and perfect for attaching corals to frags or aquascaping with rocks and other materials.
Note: Dispensing tips can be cleaned with acetone to remove excess glue
It's glue and it glues stuff. By Kevin on 1/26/2019Kevin would recommend this product to a friendI used the BRS extra thick glue along with an accelerator and epoxy putty for reefscaping large pieces of rock. For smaller pieces of rock (quarter size) I only used the glue and everything set and is holding together well. Did not have any issues with the thickness of the glue as others have had. I have not used the glue underwater yet so I cant comment on how well it will work when submerged but I was happy with what I used it for and will order more.
Simply doesn't work By David on 12/3/2018David wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHow come zero stars isn't an option? I've been using Loctite Super Glue from the grocery store forever and never had any issues. I received a tube of this stuff when I ordered a full frag kit from BRS, When I ran out of Loctite I started using this. It doesn't hold for <bleep>. Attaching frags to the plugs takes forever before it sets, and even then it sets rubbery not solid. Gluing something directly to a rock already in the tank? Forget it. It will never stick. I would say that maybe it will get better when I get to the lower half of the tube (as others have experienced) but that would require me actually using this stuff again, which isn't going to happen.
Didn't stick too well and tip clogged after one use By Peter on 11/3/2018Peter wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy summary says it all. Had much better results with the BSI IC-Gel product. Tried to switch caps but threads not a match.
hardly qualifies as gel - very thin for reef CA By Weylin on 10/3/2018Weylin wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI almost had an epic accident the first time I used this glue today. I'm accustomed to Bob Smith (BSI) gel CA, which is very thick and gel-like. I wrongly/dangerously assumed the same of the BRS glue -- holy shit I almost smeared it all over my tank glass when it came flooding out of the tube and dripping off the little rock I was gluing in place!!! SAFETY FIRST
Even after realizing the properties of it, I still couldn't glue anything down with it because it won't build up on the frag plug, and then risks dripping all over the frags and your fingers. Very unsatisfied for reefing. It'll work well for modeling though.
Good but not great... By Nick on 7/22/2018Nick would recommend this product to a friendI’ve used this glue for a couple years now, I’ve noticed recently that the tubes aren’t filled fully and there’s a bunch of watery liquid that comes out. I’d say almost a quarter of the tube is emptied before the good stuff comes out. I know times are tough but maybe stop giving away $1500 grow lamps and keep the glue quality the same?
Doesn't stick and tip of bottle always jammed. You can get better glue at the dollar store. By Nick on 7/8/2018Nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friend.
ok. like most extra thick super glue By Sean on 6/30/2018Sean would recommend this product to a friendthere seems to be a little separation. top layer is a little runny then its extra thick. good for glueing coral to rock/frag. not so for rock to rock.
Terrible glue By Robert on 5/17/2018Robert wouldn't recommend this product to a friendRuns out like water dont know where they got extra thick was fragging zoas and it so liquid it ran down the frag over my zoas not happy terrible product you get this kind from walmart if you want runny do not buy
not impressed By Trever on 12/21/2017Trever wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIt really didn't work like I had hoped. Maybe I just am picky. I ended up buying IC-gel instead.
Doesn't Hold Well By Chapman on 11/19/2017Chapman wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis glue takes too long to setup and doesn't stick well. I normally don't post, but decided to today after the almost-full tube glued itself shut and I had to cut the tip open. I will go back to using Coral Glue.
Not great By T.S. on 10/30/2017T.S. wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDidn't care for it. Too runny, doesn't set quick enough. I greatly prefer the IC-Gel but that's just my preference.
Easy to use and sets up fast. By David on 10/13/2017David would recommend this product to a friendI have used this for several years. Sets up fast and holds very well. The white color fades away quickly.

What is the 'flash point' of this glue? I am trying to determine if I would be allowed to put this in my checked luggage on an airplane. "a "flash point" at or below 140 F (60° C) indicates it is a flammable liquid and may not be carried in airline baggage." Thanks.
The flash point of Cyanoacrylate glue is between 75 and 79 deg C according to what i found here. http://creationwiki.org/Cyanoacrylate
I can't comment on whether or not it is ok to bring on a plane.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
I am trying to "glue" some star polyps to the back of my tank on the glass. Will this work and what is the best way to do that?
I think this would work just fine until star polyps attached themselves to the glass. For best results pat the back of the star polyps dry with a paper towel and if possible drain the tank down so you can do the same with the glass. Hope this helps!
How long does it take to dry when using it on rock?
Can additional dispensing tips be purchased? Thank you.
Have a great day!
Can i use this product underwater? I'm not convinced with my aquascape right now and want to add some more to it. Also, while being underwater, would it work on glass? I was thinking maaybe add a small "island" in the back wall to give dimension to the tank.
