Insta-set accelerator will help speed up the set time of any cyanoacrylate super glue. The most frustrating thing about fragging coral is the time you need to wait for the glue to set, or the frag may simply just fall over and get glue all over. With the accelerator that time spent waiting will be significantly reduced leaving more time for gluing more frags and enjoying your tank.
Insta-set is very easy and safe to use, simply just glue your frag to your plug or tile like you normally would, and then spray a very small amount of Insta-set on the glue, and place in tank water immediately after applying the accelerator due to the heat that will be generated.
When using a super glue accelerator it is important to manage the heat that can be produced. With live rock it is not as important to monitor the heat that will be generated from the reaction that will occur, however with coral it is imperative to place the frag in water immediately after applying the Insta-set. Just as long as the heat is monitored Insta-set is very safe to use for many different purposes in the reef tank and around the house.
Insta-set is not like other accelerators that smell horrible and have a very strong chemical smell. Bob Smith has put a strawberry scent in their accelerator to make use enjoyable.
I have been a die hard dollar store glue user always. I did try Ecotech glue, but it had its issues, especially with all the glue that was left in the bottle that was impossible to get out. I love this accelerator when used with IC-Gel Insta Cure Cyanoacrylate Gel - BSI. I sat down and did 2 dozen frags last night with the accelerator. Glue hardened in seconds out of water. Zoas that were fragged opened up beautifully afterwards. You would not even know they were sprayed with the accelerator. Thank you BigShow Frags for introducing me. Torx
