Make Your Glue Bond Faster

Hot Stuff NCF Hot Accelerator

Hot Stuff NCF Hot Accelerator

NCF Hot is an extremely fast-acting accelerator. It dramatically decreases the curing time of the glue and forces the glue to cure when it wouldn't otherwise.

This product cannot be shipped internationally or express. 2 oz. bottle with a plastic spray pump.

Applicator Tips for More Control


Pro TIPS applicator tips

Pro TIPS slip inside the spout for precise application of CA glues. To install, remove the spout from the bottle and cut down the tip so that the opening is large enough to slip the Pro TIP through from the inside. Feed the Pro TIP through from the inside so that the cone-shaped part fits snugly into the base of the spout and seals it off. A Pro TIP has the same diameter from its base to the tip, so that if it clogs and you have to cut it down, it will still apply the glue just as precisely. Each box comes with 12 Pro TIPS.

item B225 Price: $1.95


Jet TIPS applicator tips

These TIPS are fine bore, clog resistant nozzle extensions for precise CA application. Tips are cut on an angle and release 1 drop at a time. Jet TIPS fit INSTANT, SUPER, or SLOW glues. Box of 6.
