Loon glue

Is there another way to cure the glue than having to buy the special Loon UV Power Light?

Thanks

You can probably use any UV light. It depends upon the wavelength. I first tried a cheap one that didn't work so well. Then I ponied up for the solar EZ one which was well worth the money since I use it on almost every fly.

Be careful trying to reinforce any knot or use the Loon stuff outside. Not only will it harden while you are working with it, but if the tip of the tube sees sunlight it can clog quickly!

Do your work inside and take it out under the sun when you're done.

When curing make sure it is very sunny day the curing time is at least 1 hour ( late morning-early afternoon) during fall-early spring time. During late spring -late summer, as long as it is at least 3 hours after sunrise or 3 hours before sunset , 30-40 min. will suffice.

The glue will harden within 1-3 minutes, but it does not mean is fully cured inside, specially inside.

Once properly cured, UV gel is stronger then aquaseal. This glue is also great for repairing line's nicks and securing welded loops. Also make sure the surface is cleaned form humane grease. Either water/detergent or at least 70-100% rubbing alcohol works very effectively as a degreaser.
