Normally £3-3.50 elsewhere. I bought a tube of this recently and I've used it with great success. I particularly like the glue-dispensing system as it seems to suck the glue back into the bottle for storage (we all know that Super Glue tends to go hard in the tube after a while)..

The rubber-infused formula gives the bond a certain flex, unlike regular superglues.

Seems to be called "Loctite Superglue 3 Powerflex" in France (can't find an English video!), but here's a quick demo:
Loctite Powerflex Control Super Glue offers an extra strong rubber-infused formula for flexible bonds in easy grip squeeze bottle for better control. Weather and shock resistant.

Extra strong and flexible
Loctite Super Glue provides strong and reliable solutions for your gluing tasks at home. Developed with industrial expertise. Thanks to its precise dispensing system, Loctite Super Glue Control is easy to use and to apply.
Easy squeeze bottle for maximum control.
Bonds in seconds and holds heavy loads
Dries transparent for invisible bonds
Self-piercing, anti-clog cap
Achieves D3 technical standards according to BS EN 204.
Solvent free
Suitable for use on most surfaces
Recommended on: China, Metal, Rubber, Leather, Wood, Plastic and Paper. Ideal for vertical applications and porous materials.

How to Use It

1) Make sure that the surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and close fitting. Lightly dampen porous surfaces.
2) On first use, screw closure clockwise to activate pack. Unscrew and remove cap to apply adhesive.
3) Gently press side panels to apply a small amount of adhesive to one surface only.
4) Press the surfaces together immediately and hold in place until set.
5) After use: Close product immediately and store in the package under cool and dry conditions. Use blistercard for permanent storage of the product.

Bonded skin: In case of bonded skin, peel apart using soap, hot water and a blunt edge e.g. teaspoon handle.

If you need 'super glue' in bulk buy it from your local model shop. You can buy bigger amounts which cost less per gram and have a much bigger range of viscosities and setting speeds. It all uses the same main ingredient.

This is one of the best quality but more expensive modelling brands gluelines.co.uk/glu…zap
also, keep superglue in the freezer. the glue can't set at -18C and even an opened container will last forever instead of glueing itself solid. up until i learned this, i always bought the '10 tubes for a pound' type deal because an opened superglue container pretty much has to be binned.
I have found the Poundland superglue to be very effective. Once opened the tube lasts for ages, and does not go off. Great tip about the freezer.

The one I buy from Poundland is UHU Power (in fact I've got a tube right next to me) - the one I have is 33ml, it's in Russian. Good for jobs that don't require a really strong Superglue.

Whether "rubber infused" Powerflex is different to "ordinary" Superglue, I'm not sure - but the mend I've made with this, which requires movement and flex, I'm sure would have came undone by now with regular Superglue.

Not sure why the Deal link goes to the (different dispenser) Powerflex variety in Post #1, changed it back to the bottle with the squeezeable sides-applicator tesco.com/dir…772 (that's the one I'm using)

Not sure what the other variety of Powerflex is like, application and storage-wise. (Comes in a tube) tesco.com/dir…prd
