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:
