Gorilla is an American brand name of a line of polyurethane based waterproof glues as well as tapes, epoxies, and adhesives for various applications and tasks, from home to industrial. It has a reputation for being tough and doing a good job at its sole purpose-sticking to things-and can be found across multiple hardware stores, arts & crafts stores, parts stores and even some regular stores like Walmart. There are different types, colors, and sizes of the glue to suit your needs best. Uncured glue can be removed with solvents, such as acetone,[1] however, glue that has dried must be removed mechanically.[1] The glues expand 3X into the materials when combined with water as the glue is water activated. This is a feature of it due to the glue seeping into cracks and other spaces to increase how strong and effective it is.

Health Hazards[edit]

Gorilla Glue is harmful by inhalation, and irritating to the eyes, respiratory system, and skin. Keep away from animals and children. If Gorilla Glue is ingested, it may cause gastrointestinal blockage, and medical attention should be sought immediately.[4] If it does get into your eyes then you should flush them thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes and then get medical attention. If you have chronic asthmatic conditions then you should consult a physician before use. If you get it on your skin then just wash it off with a rough textured soap and some water. And if you inhale it and causes you physical discomfort then move to an area with fresh air, if breathing difficulties continue or you swallow it then find medical attention immediately. Wearing gloves while using it is recommended.
