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.
