If you are having problems with your adhesive cap and nozzle, it is a good time to review a few of the best practices for adhesive care and storage.
- Be sure to burp your adhesive prior to capping. This consists of squeezing the bottle from an upright position and then releasing the bottle, drawing any adhesive out of the nozzle.
- Make sure the nozzle is clean prior to capping. Make sure to remove any excess adhesive from around the nozzle. CAUTION: use a microfiber cloth or sponge. Any product with cotton (paper towel, q tip, cotton swab) will have an exothermic chemical reaction with the cyanoacrylate ingredient in the adhesive. Even the littlest amount of residue can cause problems.
- Store upright in an air tight container.
