glues are liquid alkyl-2-cyanoacrylate monomers that, on contact with ionic mediums (e.g., water, blood), form fexible polymers with strong adhesive bonds to soft tissues.
Reports in the specialized literature on the effect of temperature on particle size in anionic polymerization of alkyl cyanoacrylates
in aqueous dispersions containing surfactants are scarce.
Along with the rapid room-temperature cure, cyanoacrylates
are solvent-free and have a wide range of viscosities to choose from.
In general, there are a variety of appealing characteristics when using monomer-based systems such as cyanoacrylates
or methylene malonates: they are formaldehyde-free, eliminate or diminish energy and solvent use, provide significant increases in production speeds and full cure properties, and have diverse functionality for generalized and focused industrial applications.
Clinical and histological effects of the temporary occlusion of the rabbit nasolacrimal duct and point using cyanoacrylate
Superglue, or cyanoacrylate
, was used during the Vietnam War to close wounds while injured soldiers were being transported to hospitals for surgery.
The use of a cyanoacrylate
skin protectant to man, age skin tears was evaluated in 30 patients in an acute care setting.
ADHEZION Biomedical's topical skin adhesive SurgiSeal features a greater breaking strength and broader use in clinical applications than existing n-butyl cyanoacrylates
. Increased flexibility contributes to patient comfort and helps preserve the integrity of the adhesive, preventing premature sloughing.
Coover is best known for his invention of cyanoacrylates
, later marketed as "super glue." In fact, when Coover first experimented with them in the 1940s, cyanoacrylate
monomers were a nuisance; everything they touched stuck to everything else--including some very expensive lab equipment.
and two-part epoxies work well to install inserts into carbon arrows, but bonds aren't reversible.
were first synthesized in 1949 via a reaction between cyanoacetate and formaldehyde.
