Cyanoacrylate Adhesives

  • Chapter

Abstract

Alkyl cyanoacrylate adhesives are unique among the many classes of adhesives, in that they are the only single component, instant bonding adhesives that cure at ambient conditions without requiring an external energy source. This characteristic, coupled with an ability to bond a wide variety of diverse and dissimilar substrates, has made them the ideal adhesives for numerous bonding applications. Though moderately high in bulk cost, they are very economical to use in practice because generally only one drop is required per bond and the nearly instantaneous room temperature cure makes fixtures, ovens, and expensive radiation sources unnecessary.
