    I Googled it but came up with a variety of results, hence the question.

    The Original Super Glue was the closet thing I could find. Wikipedia, bastion of all things fact that it is, had Superglue and Krazy Glue as brand names. Some chemical sites had superglue and SuperGlue.

    So I went with Super Glue. Perfect tool for sticking cuts together, covering blisters and driving me crazy on deadline.

    Obviously, Wiped isn't the most reliable source, but there are links provided at the bottom of most pages that generally include the official sites of companies and products. Of course, any information you come across on Wiped should be verified before used in a story.
