Electric Flight, March 2016 issue, reviewed our new Brush-in-Cap Threadlocker and gave us a glowing recommendation! Read it for yourself….
Have you ever heard of Pen Turning or Polishing? No? Well, it’s a art form where people hand craft fountain pens. Guess what they use to make the hard mirror finish? Yup. CA. They use Thin CA for the base coat, and then Medium CA for the hard exterior coat. The product of choice for most Pen Polishers has been BSI Gold…until now. Read this review (click link below for PDF) to find out how well Mercury Adhesives’ performed!

Okay, so you have a bottle of CA and there’s something wrong with it. Maybe it got hard; or it got “stringy” (did you know there is a shelf-life to CA?); or confusingly enough…just doesn’t stick anymore (Thin CA can actually stay liquid and stop sticking when it gets old); or it just fails to meet your expectations in some way/shape/form. How do you get a new bottle?
Every bottle of Mercury Adhesives CA has a serial number on the back label (right above the Bar Code). We need that serial number. So, to make sure there’s no abuse to the system (someone going to a hobby store and just writing down serial numbers), we need physical proof of purchase.
So, here’s a step-by-step guide to getting a new bottle of glue via warranty replace —
- Return to us the rear label from the bottle of CA. It MUST include the serial number and the bar code. This is the cheapest option for you, as it will only cost you a stamp for shipping. You can also return the entire bottle of CA to us, but your shipping costs goes up. Sorry — NO pictures will be accepted. The Label or the Bottle is required, as fraud is too easy without physical proof. Think of it like a Refund, you don’t get the check without the actual UPC code from the box. Same here. We need the physical label. Note: EPOXY has no serial number nor bar code on the bottles. Therefore, the actual bottles must be returned for warranty replacement.
HINT: If you can’t get the label off the bottle, use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the label adhesive.
- Provide to us an address to ship the new bottle of glue.
- S&H — Please write a check (or money order) for $2.75 if you’re in the US for the first CA/Epoxy item, or $6.75 for Aerosol Accelerator; add $1.00 for each additional item. If you’re from CANADA, please include $9.00 USD for the first item, and $1.00 USD for each additional item (sorry Canada, but that’s our cost to get it over the boarder. If paying with Canadian dollars, please account for the current exchange rate). Include the check with the label. Make it out to Mercury Adhesives. DEALERS are exempt from this step.

Thank you for using Mercury Adhesives!
You see stuff like this and say “Wait… Loc-Tite, the industry leader for the residential market, never thought of this?” How could something this obvious and logical not already be the norm?”
I wonder if Loc-Tite (or any other major brand manufacturer) tried this and found it was not a good approach?
I would hate to be the VP of Marketing at Loc-Tite having to explain to the CEO why he didn’t think of this rather obvious solution! –Steve Joblin (RCGroups)
Mercury Adhesives is please to announce the world’s first Threadlocker with a brush in the cap, for a no mess application.
Why is the Brush-in-Cap design so revolutionary? The typical Threadlocker uses an eyedropper type bottle for application. Have you ever tried to use an eyedropper to apply product to a small screw or bolt? You will either drip too much on the bolt, and it falls to your work bench; or you put a drop on your work bench, and roll the screw/bolt through it; or you put a drop on your work bench and use a toothpick to apply it to the screw/bolt’s threads. All of these solutions end up putting a drop, or two, of Threadlocker on your work bench….and who wants that?
Mercury Adhesives saw the need to fix the mess of applying Threadlocker to small screws and bolts. We put our heads together and came up with the Brush-in-Cap design. Unscrew the top, pull out the brush, wipe off any excess on the side of the opening, and apply only enough Threadlocker to do the job…WITHOUT THE MESS!
Helicopters and Multi-rotors (aka Drones) are 10,000 moving parts all trying to fly in different directions. RC planes using Electric motors with instantaneous torque, or RPS’s in the 10’s of thousands, want to vibrate off their mount bolts. Gas motors are even worse for vibrations that want to undo your hours of hard work. Don’t let them!
This Threadlocker is BLUE, and is of medium strength. This is, by far, the most popular “flavor” of Threadlocker, and is the first to be released.
The packaging is a carded/bubble package that contains a single bottle with the new Brush-in-Cap, Threadlocker for a low $7.49 MSRP. Now available in the Dealer Store, and on Amazon.com. New Dealers, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org for a free sample.BUY from Amazon!
