Cyano reactions?

Post by Sam Thomas on Thu Apr 15, 2010 6:57 pm

Well I was replacing some tires on my car and these new ones I bought came with a two stage foam insert so you have to glue them end to end with a drop of cyano, and as the surface is quite small it doesnt need much glue, but even tho it is only a small area, it gets hot enough to scald you if your not careful and a small amount of smoke comes from it, so I decided to test out the cyano with two bits of offcut from this sponge face to face so it had quite a bit of surface area, I did this outside to see what would happen, after about 5 seconds it burst into flames!!!
I wonder what is causing this reaction...
has anyone had any similar reactions with cyano?

Yes mate I've had this on my HPI baja where real thin CA makes it smolder.
The heat causes them to melt together instead of just sticking and even if it works you end up with a knobly hard bit once assembled and you then have wobbly wheels.
The best thing I've found is evo stick,just put some on each end and wait for it to go tacky,then hold them together for a while.(an hour or more is best,if you get bored pass it round the house)
Fender mender might do the trick as well.

SHoe goo is great stuff, especially in confined areas. It's not bad for sticking stuff together too Smile

Cyano does get hot when it cures, especially if you happen to spill a load on your trousers whilst sat at the table, building a Multiplex Funjet.... The first thing I knew about it was a warm, prickly sensation on my legs, followed by a rather painful burning! Still, the hole that is left in my jeans, makes it really easy for toilet visits now.....
