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.
At Toagosei America, we formulate cyanoacrylates – also known as instant adhesives, industrial-strength Krazy Glue – and have expanded our portfolio to include Aronix® and Aron Oxetane® UV-curable resin.
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.
Though you may not be familiar with the term cyanoacrylate adhesive, you're probably familiar with the product itself. Commonly called super glue, instant glue, power glue, or by the brand names such as Krazy Glue, cyanoacrylate adhesive is critical to the assembly of goods for a variety of applications across industries. These glues are heat resistant, dry quickly, and will bond almost any material with another, making them ideal for a wide range of applications.
