Super Glue Accelerators: Key Considerations & How to Apply Them

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Oct 15, 2021 11:12:33 AM

Super glue accelerators are an effective tool for making super glue applications more convenient and simpler with predictable and repeatable performance results. The primary function of an accelerator (also referred to as cyanoacrylate setters, kicker, boost, blast) is to facilitate extremely fast setting (curing) and bond times, however, it can be utilized to “build” or “mound” a surface to fill gaps and create a “fillet”, improve bonding on porous surfaces like wood, ceramic or foam rubber and used to help mitigate blooming or frosting on your finished assembled item.

Why Should I Use Super Glue for Rubber Bonding?

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Sep 30, 2021 4:26:19 PM

Rubber has many applications across a wide range of industries—from tires on cars and roofs on buildings to tubes in industrial equipment. In many of these situations, the rubber must be bonded to another piece of rubber, another kind of rubber, or another type of substrate (e.g., metal, wood, or plastic) to create a usable product. Forming an effective bonding necessitates the proper selection and application of an adhesive. The wrong type and method could result in a weak bond (or no bond) or damage the substrates.

How to Get Super Glue (Cyanoacrylate) Off Your Hands

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Aug 13, 2021 4:22:19 PM

Super glue is an incredible tool for household repairs, hobbies, and more, but it can get messy—and getting it on your hands is pretty common. It can feel alarming to have your fingers stuck together or stuck to another object, but you don't need to worry, because there are several ways to remove it. Don't wait for it to dry and then try to peel it off. The bond is strong, and you may end up damaging your skin.

All About Cyanoacrylate Prototype Testing Methods

Posted by Mark Tansky on Feb 4, 2021 1:54:54 PM

Cyanoacrylates—commonly referred to as super glue or Krazy Glue—are fast-drying adhesive compounds. They create instant, high-strength bonds between various materials when exposed to moisture, including (but not limited to) metal, plastic, wood, ceramic, and rubber. These characteristics make them ideal for use in many industrial and commercial assembly applications, ranging from aerospace and automotive components to consumer appliances and musical instruments. However, before they are approved for distribution and use, they must be fully tested to verify that they provide the desired performance in the intended application.

How to Remove Super Glue From Skin, Plastic, Glass, Fabric, and More

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Dec 7, 2020 4:50:19 PM

Cyanoacrylate glue, also commonly known as Krazy Glue or super glue, is an instant adhesive that creates exceptionally strong polymer bonds between a variety of materials. Unlike other adhesives, cyanoacrylate (CA) glue does not require additional treatments to cure and harden to the surface of a material. Exposure to moisture or humidity in the air is sufficient to activate the bond between the active ingredient, ethyl cyanoacrylate, and the material. Anionic polymerization triggered by exposure to water molecules allows CA glue to create polymer chains that can bond to a range of materials, from wood and metal to ceramic, leather, and plastic.

Unusual Applications of Cyanoacrylates

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Oct 7, 2020 3:54:52 PM

Cyanoacrylate is the umbrella term for instant adhesives (also known as superglue or power glue). You may recognize popular cyanoacrylate brand names such as PermaBond, Krazy Glue, or Gorilla Glue. Cyanoacrylate is incredibly versatile and has been used for almost 70 years in product assembly throughout a variety of industries, including automotive, medical device manufacturing, electronics, construction, and consumer products. While one may think they’re aware of all the uses of this powerful adhesive, there are some “unconventional” applications of cyanoacrylates we thought would be interesting to share with you.

What You Need to Know About Cyanoacrylate Glue Accelerators & Primers

Posted by Aron Alpha Team on Apr 30, 2020 12:24:37 PM

Cyanoacrylates—also known as CA glue, ethyl cyanoacrylates, super glues, instant adhesives, or Krazy Glues—are adhesives made from cyanoacrylate esters (most commonly ethyl). These adhesives are primarily characterized by their fast cure time when moisture is present. Once solidified, they form strong and rigid bonds between two substrates pressed firmly together.
