Glues and Adhesives
Cyano-acrylate adhesives are very rapid bonding, very adhesive products, marketed as instant adhesives (brand names Schnellkleber, Super Kleber, Super Glue, Power Glue, Magic Glue, NASA-Kleber, etc).
Cyano-acrylate adhesives set very quickly in the presence of moisture (in the air, on the skin, perspiration, sebum, tears, saliva).
They are capable of bonding human tissue, including skin and eyes, in seconds.
Experience has shown that dealing with accidents properly usually makes surgical treatment unnecessary, as long as the following procedures and instructions are observed.
Even if nothing is done, cyano-acrylate adhesives automatically lose their adhesiveness to skin, eyes and mouth in due course under the effect of moisture on the skin, perspiration, tears or saliva.
