How to remove cyanoacrylate adhesive?

How to remove cyanoacrylate adhesive? As we discussed here, there are three basic ways to remove adhesive. Mainly, dissolving, heating, and stress. To remove cyanoacrylate adhesive most effectively, a combination of all three ways may be used.  The deciding factors on which is most appropriate are: What are the surfaces bonded? How much time do you have? O...

Flexible CA Cyanoacrylates

Flexible CA (Cyanoacrylate) When I first heard that we had developed flexible CA I thought OK, sure we did.  I bet it is another one of those rubber toughened instant adhesives.  Toughened cyanoacrylates are considerably less brittle than standard cyanoacrylates but using the word flexible to describe them is a bit of a STRETCH.   I was pleasantly surprised to find o...

Ethyl Cyanoacrylates

Ethyl Cyanoacrylates One of the most common types of cyanoacrylates used as instant adhesives are ethyl cyanoacrylates.  Years ago, I was told to use methyl cyanoacrylates for metal and ethyl for everything else.  That simple saying served well me for many years.  Permabond 910 was the original methyl cyanoacrylate. It was formulated over 60 years ago and is still sou...

Common and bizarre uses of cyanoacrylate adhesives

Permabond 910 is the original cyanoacrylate, and as we celebrate the 65th birthday of 910, which was designed for bonding, I can’t help but think of all the other ways cyanoacrylate adhesive is used.  I am certain that 65 years ago it would have been difficult to image the large variety of cyanoacrylate adhesive types available today, but I expect it would have been im...

Permabond 910 an oldie but goodie

910 On a recent visit to a new engineer at a company that has long used Permabond 910, while we were on our way to the lab the new engineer and I met up with an engineer I’ve known for years.  He asked what brought me in and I explained that my new friend had a fresh iteration of their component and wanted to review the best adhesive solution.  My old friend looked t...

Cyanoacrylate, Sticky Stuff

CYANOACRYLATE or is it spelled, cyanacrylate, cyanocrilate, cyano acrylate, or cyana ocrylate As Mark Twain is attributed to saying “…that he must have little genius who can’t spell a word in more than one way.”  Permabond manufactures cyanoacrylates and as a cyanoacrylate adhesive supplier, over the years I have had the pleasure of speaking with many creative s...

Bonding Silicone Rubber

Silicone Rubber Silicone is a high performance elastomeric material.  It has a wide variety of uses and is often found used as seals or gaskets due to its flexibility and ability to be compressed between two surfaces.  Other uses include flexible medical devices and tubing, prosthetics, surgical implants and special effects in the film industry. Thanks to its high temp...

Cyanoacrylate Adhesive Environmental Resistance

  Chemical Resistance   It doesn’t seem logical, but cyanoacrylate adhesives have more chemical resistance to gasoline than they do to water.  One customer who normally used acetone to remove excess adhesive wanted to speed up the process.  So he tried what is normally considered a stronger solvent, toluene.  The toluene didn’t seem to have much effe...
