Mercury's Thin CA is great base coat for your wooden pens. The water thin
CA will provide protection and leave it with a more natural feel than
using medium CA. Thin CA is also great for penetrating the surface of the
blank, before during or after turning to help stabilize and harden the
wood. Mercury Adhesives are manufactured in the USA, in
Atlanta, GA. It is a medical grade CA that is highly concentrated and
99.9% pure. For finishing pens, just a drop or two is all that is needed
for each coat. Reduced fumes are also a feature of Mercury CA. Another unique
feature with the Mercury CA range is the clog free nozzles which are on all the 2oz CA bottles. There are
three sealing points within the cap, including a steel pin to help keep
the tip clear & open. If CA does build up on the tip or cap, just
soak it in acetone for little while. These bottles can be refilled and
reused many times.
The jumbo 8oz bottles of Mercury CA
have a screw top and are ideal to use as a refill to top up the 2oz bottles.
You can also purchase cheap squeeze
bottles at a hobby/craft shop.
