ZAP-0 XTRA FOAM SAFE CA is a universal instant
cyanoacrylate adhesive with maximum performance and
perfect 3 second finishes. It’s strong, fast and safe. This new
generation liquid formula does not irritate or smell.
The properties of ZAP-0 XTRA FOAM SAFE CA have been
carefully selected through extensive research and
experimentation to meet the needs of the most demanding
users. Our technical expertise and market knowledge have
led us to the development of an instant adhesive with
excellent adhesive properties on a wide range of materials
Compared to traditional universal adhesives, this product
offers exceptionally fast bonding times during difficult
conditions, even in applications where flexibility is required. It
is a multi-purpose product and perfectly works all types of
• Immediate dry time. Bonds in 3 seconds
• Highly durable and resistant to vibrations.
• Works on all types of materials, including highly
porous materials. Except Polyethylene (PE),
Polypropylene (PP), and Teflon® (PTFE)
• Water resistant, Dishwater resistant and outdoor
• Doesn’t whiten applications
• Easy to use and doesn’t adhere to fingers quickly
• Density at 23 °C (ISO 1183): 1.10 g/cm3
• Viscosity (Brookfield DV II + Pro, 25 °C, 100 rpm):
20 – 50 mPa∙s
Under normal conditions, atmospheric moisture initiates the
curing process over the adhesive layer that forms when the
two surfaces to be joined are put in contact and pressed.
Although resistance develops rapidly, maximum resistance is
achieved after 24 hours.
It is defined as the time required to develop a shear strength
of 0.1 N/mm² (1 kg/cm2). The following table shows the
fixation time in different materials at 23 °C and 50 % relative

How to Use
– Before applying the adhesive, ensure that the bonding areas
are clean, dry and free of any loose material, dust, dirt, rust,
oil and other contaminants. 2
– For tubes, screw the cap and nozzle into the tube. Unscrew
the cap to open the product. For a brush bottle or cannula
bottle, unscrew the cap.
-Apply a small amount of material to one of the two surfaces.
For irregular surfaces more material may be required to fill all
of the surface area. 2
– Place the two parts in contact and press for a few seconds
until the parts are fixed (see the time table for accurate
values). After releasing the pressure, wait a few minutes to
obtain a good resistance for handling. The total resistance is
reached at approximately 24 hours
– Immediately after use, clean the nozzle tip with a tissue and
close the lid. Store the tube or bottle upright in a cool, dry
– The product used for surface cleaning will depend on the
nature of the surfaces. In some cases, a clean, lint-free cotton
cloth moistened in solvent may be used.
Dry immediately with another cloth before the solvent
evaporates from the surface. In other cases consult the
cleaning method with the manufacturer of the supporting
Tips for a PERFECT FINISH 2
– Do not apply excess product and remove excess as much
as possible with an absorbent paper or spatula.
– For an invisible finish, apply in a continuous thin layer and
remove the occluded air; do not apply to points. 2
– For glass and glass applications do a pre-test.
Dissolution and Cleaning
Use specific solvents for instant adhesives such as SUPER
GLUE REMOVER (Ref. 11710361) or acetone.
ZAP-0 XTRA FOAM SAFE CA is supplied in a 20g bottle (Ref.
Store the product in a cool, dry place in its original closed
container at temperatures between 5°C and 25°C. In its
original packaging. The date of manufacture can be
determined from the batch code on the packaging.
