• acrylic
  • In general, cyanoacrylate is an acrylic resin that rapidly polymerises in the presence of water (specifically hydroxide ions), forming long, strong chains, joining the bonded surfaces together. (wikipedia.org)
  • ethyl cyanoacetate
  • Ethyl cyanoacrylate is prepared by the condensation of formaldehyde with ethyl cyanoacetate: CH2(CN)CO2Et + CH2O → CH2=C(CN)CO2Et + H2O This exothermic reaction affords the polymer, which is subsequently sintered, thermally "cracked" to give the monomer. (wikipedia.org)
  • wherein
  • Cyanoacrylates are well known in the art and can be represented by formula I: ##STR1## wherein R is an alkyl or other suitable substituent. (google.com)
  • Eastman
  • The team quickly rejected the substance for the wartime application, but in 1951, while working as researchers for Eastman Kodak, Coover and a colleague, Fred Joyner, rediscovered cyanoacrylates. (wikipedia.org)
  • National Starch and Chemical Company purchased Eastman Kodak's cyanoacrylate business and combined it with several acquisitions made throughout the 1970s forming Permabond. (wikipedia.org)
  • formaldehyde
  • In general, there are a variety of appealing characteristics when using monomer-based systems such as cyanoacrylates or methylene malonates: they are formaldehyde-free, eliminate or diminish energy and solvent use, provide significant increases in production speeds and full cure properties, and have diverse functionality for generalized and focused industrial applications.

  • topical
  • This invention is directed to alkyl cyanoacrylate compositions which are specifically formulated for topical application onto intact or broken human skin. (google.com)
  • Suggested uses for alkyl cyanoacrylate compositions include their use in topical application onto intact skin in order to form a polymer layer which inhibits blister and pressure ulcer formation as described in U.S. Pat. (google.com)
  • include
  • Other uses of alkyl cyanoacrylates include their use with small wounds as described in U.S. Pat. (google.com)
  • Other manufacturers of cyanoacrylate include LePage (a Canadian company acquired by Henkel in 1996), the Permabond Division of National Starch and Chemical, Inc., which was a subsidiary of Unilever. (wikipedia.org)
