How Cyanoacrylate Adhesives Have Improved

There are various reasons why cyanoacrylate adhesives have grown in popularity despite their relatively higher cost per unit. First, cyanoacrylate adhesives are one-compound adhesives, so they are ready to use. They cure and bond very quickly when applied or pressed into a thin layer between two substrates. And they create a strong bond between different surfaces. Addi...

Scientists Develop New Bio-Adhesive Polymer

Scientists working at the University of New South Wales have recently developed a new laser-activated bio-adhesive polymer. The new polymer, known as SurgiLux, is derived from chitin, a substance found in the cell walls of fungi or in the exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans. Chitin is a component that, when exposed to light, acts in SurgiLux to create low-energy bo...
