    Hi all,

    Have you all found anything similar to zap a gap that is worth trying?
    I'm looking for something with similar strength and finishing clarity.

    Thanks!

    An nail shop that women use will sell a nail glue that is the same thing.

    I like Krazy Glue.
    A couple of other products to consider if you ever use epoxy instead of some type of glue are Clear Cure Goo and Bug Bond.

    Question: Are you saying you want an alternative to CA glues or just another brand?
    Alternatives to CA glue form me would be Plastic Dip, Hard-As-Hull or Sally Hanson's Clear Nail Polish.

    Thank you all!
    Stonefish- My question was if there is a similar product like zap-a-gap/ca glue.

    When I checked out your link to the loctite product...at the bottom of the page it says: "Not recommended for: Styrofoam, foam rubber, pure bone china, glass, silicone rubber, PTFE, polyethylene and polypropylene".
    Would the common craft-type foams we use fall under any of these?
