Throughout the years, innovations in construction material and manufacturing processes have led to medical-grade adhesives replacing the use of traditional fastening systems in medical device assemblies. When properly applied, adhesives present significant advantages over other mechanical fastening methods.
The strength behind industrial super glue is often a topic of conversation with our customers. So we thought we would create this post to provide an overview in an attempt to cover this topic. As we mentioned in a prior post, keep in mind, not all super glues are created equal. In fact, there are varying types of super glues (also known as cyanoacrylates), that are intended for various type of applications.
This post has been designed to provide insight as to the trends and economic shifts when it comes to the general category of adhesives and mechanical fastening technology for industrial applications.
Some of the innovations that emerged out of World War II are well-documented, ranging from the microwave to the photo copier. But there's one small tool whose WW2 heritage is lesser-known. Today we know this powerful product as Super Glue.

Selecting the right industrial adhesive for your business needs is vital to ensure that you are able to deliver your products on time, at the right price and in compliance with your quality standards.
As modern adhesive technologies advance, manufacturers are progressively interested in understanding the use of adhesives in product assembly applications and what benefits are offered over mechanical assembly methods such as welding, rivets and threaded fasteners. This post will help you gain a better understanding of how cyanoacrylates work and why they are a good choice as they relate to alternative fastening techniques.
The adhesive you specify for your component assemblies is critical to ensuring the end product is of the highest quality. Many engineering and purchasing authorities underestimate the importance of this selection because it seems to be such a small part of the overall process. But remember that although it is a small part of the assembly process, it is the “glue” that literally and figuratively holds your product together.
