IC-GEL™ is a cyanoacrylate paste that is extremely thick which comes in an applicator tube like toothpaste. It has the same bonding and curing time characteristics as MAXI-CURE™; IC-Gel™, however, can be applied to a vertical surface and will stay in place. It will not run. This can be very convenient for some assembly applications. Applying CA to the bottom of a horizontal surface, such as a ceiling, can be very difficult with anything other than a full standard CA bottle. IC-GEL™ can be applied at any angle with just a squeeze of the tube. The gel does, however, have a tendency to continue to come out of the tube for about a second after pressure is released, so this must be taken into account to apply the exact amount of IC-GEL™ that you want.

IC-GEL™ is an excellent putty for plastic models. It will fill any void and can be formed to many shapes. Applying INSTA-SET™ allows IC-GEL™ to be sanded or filed to final shape in less than 20 seconds. Autobody repairmen have finished their jobs in a fraction of the time by using IC-GEL™ with the additional advantage over normal body putties of superior bonding to metal surfaces. IC-GEL™, along with MAXI-CURE™, is also used for the underwater bonding of coral to rock.

Best Glue around!

Ive used a lot of superglue type gel glues, and this is the best by far - better than Ecotech, or Coraffix Pro, or anything you can get from the hardware store. It has the consistency of gel toothpaste, but is still sticky. It easily bonds corals to rock underwater and it reaches a strong bond quickly. Highly recommended!

Best Glue Period.

This is the best of the "superglue" type adhesives. Very easy to create bead and does not run. This glue is thick but has a quality that just makes it easier to use. It also comes with spare cap so when the first on gets glued together you have spare. 1 6.99 tube could do 20 frags.

Worst gel I have ever used

Unequivocally, BSI IC Gel is the worst super glue gel I have ever had the misfortune of using. I just lost my Emeralds on fire zoanthids, 4-5 precious polyps that were doing so well for the last 2 months, simply blew off! I was lucky I managed to catch my pink hippos last week. I have space monsters which are budding from one polyp into 4 and I'm terrified those will blow off next. I don't know if it is my particular batch but I bought this product from reading rave reviews and I am shocked.

Great Glue

This glue works well and holds better than the loctite I've been using. I also like the applicator hole size, it's just right.
