Well their web page won't load, so NO I've not ever heard of or used Mercury adhesives. Over the years I too have had unopened containers of CA glues harden in the bottle. It's the old saying "Use it or loose it" as the stuff will somehow suck
moisture from the air and harden itself over time. I do have some 2 part epoxy from the 1970's that still mixes and hardens just like it did...almost 50 years ago!!

Absolutely.  It's fantastic stuff.  I use their epoxy and CA lines.

Sometimes the epoxy crystallizes (normal), I place the bottle in warm water and its ready to go again. I'm still using a bottle of 15min epoxy I bought 10 years ago, it works great.

For the CA bottles I order a bundle of push on tips or use those disposable plastic pipettes.

I fairly sure these adhesives are made in America too.

That accelerater definitely works good. It also helps when you r CA gets a bit old and doesn't cure as fast as it used to. Its smelly stuff though. Mine came with the spray tip, and a silicone seal cap as it is will disappear/evaporate on you if you leave the sprayer on (yup happened to me). I typically use the disposable pipettes instead of the spray tip.

Good call on medium and thin CA. The thin stuff saved my 1/2a Zero fuse after a ground impact. It cracked right behind the TE across grain, and was sorta held yogether by monokote. Had some one hold the crack closed and true, let the thin stuff absorb in. 25sec good if not better than before.

Over the years, I've learned to generally keep my opinions to myself, but this is one time when I would like to encourage you and anyone who wishes to know ... I highly recommend this product, the Mercury line of adhesives Very Happy !  From 1996 until 2013, I owned and operated a small "mom and pop" type hobby shop.  One of the products I kept in stock was this product line.  I found it to be outstanding in its application, versatility and reliability.  Back then Cliff Whitley was the owner and I spent a great deal of time talking with him about their manufacturing and distribution process and I was more than pleased especially with a guarantee of serviceability he extended.  He told me that if any of my customers ever had a problem that I was to contact him directly.  Well, sure enough, one of my older customers had purchased a 2 oz thin CA, as I remember.  Now we are in Florida and workshops can get rather hot and no CA is supposed to be kept in the heat of a hot sun.  Well, apparently he did and the bottle went hard.  I contacted Cliff, gave him the information and true to his word, my customer received a free replacement.  I'll never forget that act of kindness though it may not have any meaning to anyone else in the whole world.  Needless to say, I don't use any other brand whether CA or epoxy for my hobby purposes and general repair projects plus I still promote it and offer it for sale to my local club members.  I'm sold on it and highly recommend it!!
