Ruddog CA activator spray

The Ruddog CA activator spray is a cyanoacrylate accelerator spray for the use with all common cyanoacrylate-based super glues. The CA kicker greatly reduces the curing time of thick, thin and super thin glues, making it ideal when glueing on-road and off-road tyres. Simply use the glue as usual and apply a small layer of CA activator afterwards or use an indirect technique by spraying a small amount of CA kicker into a cup and putting the cup over the tyre – the latter can make for more aesthetically pleasing results depending on the glue used. The CA activator spray is available in 150ml spray cans from now on.
