Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT MAKES PASCO FIX GERMAN GLUE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CYANOACRYLATE ADHESIVES?

Pasco Fix is a multiple-distilled medical grade cyanoacrylate adhesive, with NO solvents.  While typical store bought brands are filled with solvents, fillers, and other ingredients intended to make an inferior product work better, Pasco Fix uses only the highest quality ingredients with zero dilution.  Pasco Fix works anaerobically, meaning “without oxygen.”  While other adhesives rely upon solvents to make their glue “dry quickly,” Pasco Fix bonds quickly rather than dry quickly.  This is why Pasco Fix will not dry up in the bottle, even with the cap off, but the moment you squeeze two surfaces together with Pasco Fix the bond will occur instantly.

HOW LONG DOES PASCO FIX LAST? 

The shelf life of Pasco Fix depends on storage.  We guarantee that it will last 1 year from the date of your purchase.  However, when stored in the refrigerator it may last 5 years or longer.
The shelf life of Pasco Fill is indefinite.
The shelf life of the Accelerator and Primer is at least 5 years regardless of the storage temperature.  Typically these components do not go bad, they evaporate first.  You can prevent this by keeping the cap on tight and storing it in a cool dark place.  While keeping your Accelerator and Primer in the refrigerator is not essential, it is helpful.

HOW DO I STORE MY PASCO ADHESIVES?

Pasco Fix adhesive should be stored in a cold dark place like your refrigerator.  It should be kept away from direct sunlight and strong heat sources.
Pasco Fill powder can be stored anywhere that is dry to avoid having the powder clump up.  If this happens, store it in a warm place with the cap off and just shake it up.

OOPS!  I GLUED THE CAP TO THE BOTTLE – WHAT DO I DO?

Don’t panic, it can be fixed.  Your Pasco Fix bottle has three components – the bottle, the tip, and the cap.  The cap and tip can get stuck together due to storing the bottle on its side or from not cleaning the tip after each use.  The way to fix this is to carefully unscrew the cap using a pair of soft-grip pliers, making sure to hold the bottle in its upright position.  Typically this will leave the mouth of the bottle open and the tip will be stuck in the cap.  Soak the tip and cap in straight Acetone or an Acetone-based nail polish remover overnight.  Then, using a needle nose pliers you should be able to remove the tip out of the cap and reinsert it into the bottle.  Be careful to place the open bottle in a safe place away from children and pets.

DO YOU SELL EMPTY REPLACEMENT BOTTLES?

Unfortunately, we do not.

OOPS!  I’VE GLUED MY FINGERS TOGETHER, SPILLED MY GLUE,  OR GLUED SOMETHING BY MISTAKE – WHAT DO I DO?

Again, don’t panic.  Never try to pull the glue from your skin.  Acetone or Acetone-based nail polish remover will dissolve Pasco Fix and other cyanoacrylate adhesives.  Using a soft cloth dabbed in Acetone, gentle rub the glued area and it will slowly dissolve the bond.  Pasco Fix is non-toxic and less harmful to your skin than acetone, therefore, it is perfectly fine to leave dried glue on your skin as it will be repelled by normal skin growth in a day or two.  Items that have been glued together by mistake may possibly be un-glued by soaking in Acetone.  Please note that Acetone will damage some materials and surfaces, so test a small area before deciding to expose or soak the item in Acetone.  Also be sure to read the warning labels on the Acetone to ensure safe handling.
