I don't think so. Super glue is cyano acryliate. It like something like weld-on is dicholromethane. They work on two different principles - super glue adds a plastic-ish compound between the surfaces that grips both surfaces. Acrylic cement melts the acrylic, causing the two surfaces to re-crystallize as a single structure.
