Science Fair Project Idea: Contact Cement vs. Substrates

Hey, Science Fair Enthusiasts! Check out this great video. It shows you just how easy it is to test for strength of glues. Imagine using this system to do some product comparisons between The Original Super Glue (R) Contact Cement and some of our competitors, or maybe you would prefer to compare the strength of contact cements against other types of glues like cyanoacrylates (super glue), white glues, and epoxies.

We will warn you though — most often it is the substrate (wood, plastic, metal) that fails before the adhesive (at least our brands of adhesives)!! Just like in this video:

Science Fair Project Ideas

Hey, Students!  As you begin brainstorming your science fair project ideas be sure to think about how you might incorporate The Original Super Glue brand products into your plans!  We are always interested in helping budding scientists reach for their dreams, AND our product development team is always interested in new and unique ways our products are being used.

Some project ideas, like this Soda Bottle Magnetometer used to “monitor changes in the Earth’s magnetic field for signs of magnetic storms”  just use super glue to build the project’s monitoring device whereas other project ideas may be about the actual super glue itself (such as comparing the holding power of super glue or epoxies to other adhesives).  Either way — we want to help you out!

If you need super glue products to use for a science project simply send us your request for “Science Fair Project Super Glue Products” along with your name,  and the products you need (supplies may be limited), and we will send you some sample products.  If you’ve used our products in a science fair project before, and have a picture, or description, of the how the products were used, send us that as well and we may use your story in our blog (and send you some sample products).

Happy Experimenting!!
