How does cyanoacrylate adhesive work?

Cyanoacrylate adhesive or superglue is a so-called one-component glue. This means it consists of just one ingredient: cyanoacrylate, a chemical compound that appears as a liquid at room temperature. It is often used as an adhesive.
The hardening of such an adhesive occurs through humidity, which is why it must be stored in an airtight and cool place.
After application, cyanoacrylate-based superglue hardens quickly; all you need to do is press it briefly.
That's why it's perfect for small areas that need to be bonded quickly, firmly, and cleanly.

Cyanoacrylate adhesives are differentiated according to their viscosity. Low-viscosity superglues are suitable for bonding plastic and rubber together or with each other. Superglue with high viscosity, on the other hand, is particularly suitable for porous and absorbent surfaces.

Which materials can be bonded with fast-curing cyanoacrylate adhesive?

The success of superglue is explained not only by its quick hand strength and hardening, but also by the fact that it is suitable for so many materials.
For example for:

● Metal
● Plastic
● Rubber
● Stone
● Leather
● Ceramics
● Wood
● Paper

This makes it suitable for various uses in the home, for crafts, in the workshop and more.

Caution: Although super adhesive is popular, you should be careful when using it - because it hardens quickly, you should be careful not to glue your own fingers.
Otherwise, you can suffer unsightly skin damage.

Suggestions for working with cyan adhesive

Cyanoacrylate adhesive is not only intended for domestic use. It can also be used for connections in industry.
Toy manufacturers use it for rubber and plastic bonding, jewelry manufacturers for processing metal.

In addition to everyday repairs, you can also use certain specialty adhesives in conjunction with water - look for cyanoacrylate glue with waterproof properties. You can use them to attach objects in aquariums, for example. They are non-toxic and do not release any pollutants into the water.

In our online shop you will also find cyanoacrylate adhesive with so-called NSF approval for sensitive areas. Such superglues are food-safe and can be used in the medical field. Cyanoacrylate adhesive is needed there as a skin adhesive or to glue and seal utensils such as catheters, syringes, or endoscopes.

Good to know: Soldiers also use cyanoacrylate adhesive for wounds when there are no bandages at hand.

How do you use and remove cyanoacrylate adhesive correctly?

Before you buy cyanoacrylate adhesive, it is important to find out how to use it correctly.
The smallest possible adhesive gap is a prerequisite for using superglue for plastic and other materials. In addition, the surfaces must be clean and dry for a firm bond.
If the surfaces are smooth, you should roughen them mechanically. For materials that are difficult to bond – e.g. B. Plastics such as PP, PE or silicones - there is a corresponding CA primer.
You can also find this in our range.

Cyanoacrylate is temperature-resistant up to around 180 degrees Celsius. If the adhesive is exposed to temperatures above this limit, adhesive connections can be loosened again. Most cyanoacrylate adhesives can also be removed if exposed to moisture or treated with acetone for a long time.
