Everyone keeps forgetting about what I believe is the best CA glue on the market and it does not get mentioned much. But they too are a vendor here and as big of a player as others mentioned already. That is Satellite City glues. I use them all the time and have never had a failure yet. I glue many different materials together. I have not had cracking problems either. They too offer odorless CA. May want to check them out when looking too.

I will bet not many people even know what UFO (User Friendly Odorless) is. They probably think of an alien space ship. Attaching the name of the vendor to it will help identify it better. Their site also has a lot of valuable info on it and I have posted this a few times when CA glue questions come up. I will post a link again here.

Technically speaking, there is a difference between being allergic to something and being sensitive to it. Many people are sensitive to CA's vapors, but not allergic, although the resulting symptoms can be the same. Some of these reactions can be very severe.

Many of the reactions are caused by the chemical additives that most manufacturers use, along with cyanoacrylate. Some of their "proprietary ingredients" are hazardous chemicals which should never be inhaled.

Even Mercury's M5T Thin CA (which is 99.9% pure cyanoacrylate) will generate irritating vapors. As you breath in small amounts of CA vapors, they will instantly cure when they hit your nasal passages and eyes. This creates a burning sensation, sometimes a very intense sensation.

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to avoid this is to place a small fan such that it blows gently across your lathe - blowing the CA vapors away from you where they will quickly dissipate. Other techniques are to use a different CA. Some brands are more irritating than others. Also, using too much CA and/or Accelerator at a time can generate excessive vapors. Added to this, some brands of paper towels have a higher pH than others and cause CA to be overly reactive. Changing he brand of paper towel or using something else can be a big help.

There are some types of CA that are slower to react and inherently cause less vapors. The Flex CA from Mercury Adhesives has a much longer open time and generates far fewer vapors than some other brands. Their Odorless CA (M100F) and BSI's Super-Gold do not generate fumes or vapors at all like regular CA does. Odorless CA is very expensive, but it's worth it for those with severe sensitivity CA's vapors.
