Review: Army Painter Super Glue

INTRODUCTION

Today is a special day. The Army Painter – a worldwide supplier of hobby products, such as paints, colour primers, glues, brushes, tufts and more, is now twelve years old! It’s hard to believe that he the company which entered the market in 2007th introducing a medium sized offer of hobby products grew to be a giant we know today. I remember when Army Painter appeared for the first time in a hobby store I ran. Easy to say I fell in love with some of their products and stuck with AP to this day.

So, let’s celebrate Army Painter’s 12th birthday with a review of my favorite AP product of all time – the Army Painter Super Glue!

FEATURES

  • The Army Painter Super Glue comes in a handy bottle containing 20ml of Cyanoacrylate.
  • The bottle is equipped with a long plastic feeder that helps apply the glue in precise dozes. It is also easy to clean up from glue residue which helps maintain the glue.
  • In contrary to regular tubed glues you can apply Army Painter Super Glue without fear of an air bubble spilling glue all over the miniature. All thanks to partially translucent, medium hard bottle that provides much better control than regular soft tube.
  • If maintained properly the Army Painter Super Glue can stay functional for about 3-4 months after being open. After that time it thickens slightly with every passing week, up to a point of turning into a gel about half a year from initial use.
  • Once applied onto a properly prepared surface the glue binds in just few seconds and I can tell you – it holds like a bitch! I rarely use pins thanks to this glue’s holding power.
  • It can be further reinforced using Army Painter Magic Glue Activator, which fastens the binding process and hardens the end result even more than glue by itself.
  • Forget Plastic Glue – from now on Army Painter Super Glue is all you need!

PRICE?

The Army Painter Super Glue comes at a suggested price of 4,99€. Compared to a small tube of glue this might come across as expensive, but taking into account how much stuff you’ll be able to glue with a single bottle of AP’s glue and the fact it will stay functional long after first use – it’s totally worth it! Not to mention Games Workshop glue, which comes in four 5ml tubes, that once opened don’t stand a chance of against Army Painter’s king of a glue!

SUMMARY

I simply love this glue. I use it for twelve years now and used up more than a hundred bottles. I prefer it over any other Cyanoacrylate glue and I totally recommend you to try it out. On a scale where 10 is awesome, 8 is good, 6 is ok, 5 is mediocre, 3 is bad and I don’t want to even mention 1 – the Army Painter Super Glue is 11! I just can’t imagine hobbying without it. For me it’s essential.

WHERE TO BUY?

Best to ask in your local hobby store, but if you want to support the great company Army Painter had become – head to Army Painter Website and order from them directly.
