CorAffix is a quick cure adhesive used to attaching stony corals, gorgonians, and other invertebrates to live rock or plugs in reef aquaria. Great for attaching coral frags. Forms a secure bond in 20 seconds. CorAffix ethyl cyanoacrylate bonding compound has a thick consistency so it won't run.
Instructions For "frags" place a spot of CorAffix on a base rock or plug. Press the frag onto it and wet with seawater to accelerate hardening. Cures within 20 seconds.
For aquascaping: Do not insert bottle underwater. Place a spot of CorAffix on the underside of a coral above water and quickly insert the coral in seawater to form a skin. Repeat, forming layers, until there is a sufficient quantity for making the attachement. Press the coral in position underwater, causing CorAffix to spread between the coral and the attachment point. Hold in place for 30 seconds. If a secure bond does not form, apply another layer of CorAffix and try again.
Use with AquaStik to attach larger coral heads. First put freshly mixed AquaStik on live rock. Push the coral base into the AquaStik and then remove the coral, leaving the impression of the coral base in the AquaStik left in place on the live rock. Allow the AquaStik to harden for 20 minutes. Next put CorAffix on the coral base and press it into the impression made in the AquaStik, forming a secure bond in 20 seconds.
