Why does super glue stick to almost anything?

Moisture is everywhere in the surrounding air. Therefore, most objects have a thin layer of moisture on their surface. As super glue comes into contact with the surfaces to be bonded, it forms long, strong chemical chains which bind the two surfaces together almost immediately.

How can super glue be removed from hands and skin?

Soaking the skin in warm soapy water as quickly as possible to soften the glue. Gently peel apart. Do not pull.

What is super glue made of?

Cyanoacrylate – an acrylic resin that reacts to form tight chains between two materials being bonded when it comes into contact with moisture on the surfaces.

How should surfaces be prepared for bonding?

Application steps:
1. Surfaces should be clean of oil, dirt, dust or grease and completely dry.
2. Lightly sand surfaces with a fine sand paper to roughen smooth surfaces for better adhesion.

How much glue should be applied?

The general rule is 1 drop per square inch or just enough to cover the bond area when pressed together. Less is more – excessive glue makes a weaker and slower bond.
