De-Bonding CA Glue

George did an experiment in the interest of science. He glued a couple of his fingers together with CA (cyanoacrylate) glue. He did this because Titebond Bob said he could get his fingers apart by soaking them in water. What?! Water will dissolve CA glue? Spoiler alert. Water won’t dissolve the glue, but it will allow glued together fingers to come apart.

As you watch the video and see how long this takes to work, keep in mind what Bob keeps saying over and over again. George put A LOT of glue on his fingers. If there had been a more realistic amount, like just a little dab, this would have gone a whole bunch faster.

    I will admit that I scrolled through the timeline once I understood what George was doing to when (if) his fingers would separate. Wow - 25+ minutes! But at least it did happen without causing damage. Thank you for the video.
