Cyanoacrylates are very often referred as super glue and is the most used and famous family of glues and adhesives that has applications in medical, industrial and household sector. These adhesives have a short shelf life, i.e. if the adhesive is opened it can last only for a month however, if unopened it can last for a year. Cyanoacrylate is the generic name for 2- octyl- Cyanoacrylate and ethyl-2- Cyanoacrylate. Industrial Cyanoacrylates are termed as instant adhesives, which have high strength that bond the unlike materials including metal, plastic and rubber among others. These adhesives are converted into thermoplastic resins at room temperature at a rapid speed that develops its fixture strength in few seconds and full strength within 24 hours. Cyanoacrylate adhesives are solvent free that cures rapidly when compressed into thin films in between the two substrates.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives are classified on the basis of products such as general purpose adhesives, toughened adhesives, odor/ low bloom adhesives, light cure adhesives, flexible adhesives and thermal resistance adhesives among others. They are available in various dispensable pack sizes that include liquids, gels and pastes among others. Liquid cyanoacrylate adhesives are used for filling gaps in a more efficient way than that of other adhesives. The only limitation with liquid cyanoacrylate adhesives is that it flows beyond the area of application and cleaning of adhesive becomes a tougher task. Gel cyanoacrylate adhesives are highly viscous adhesives that resist the flow of adhesives during its application. Paste adhesives has higher filler content and therefore has higher resistance to flow and more is the force required to spread and dispense the adhesive on the surface.
The major advantages of Cyanoacrylate adhesives include: one part system, rapid room temperature curing, solvent free, excellent adhesion to many substrates, excellent bond strength in shear and tensile mode, availability in wide range of viscosities and primer available for polyolefines and difficult-to-bond plastics. Along with advantages, cyanoacrylates adhesives also possess some disadvantages such as limited gap cure, poor peel strength, poor solvent resistance, poor durability on glass, bond skin rapidly and low temperature resistance.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives are used in a wide range of applications such as assembling prototypes electronics, flying model aircraft and retention dressing for bolts and nuts. In addition, these glues are used as wood finishes in wood turners, used in automotive assemblies. Cyanoacrylate adhesive also has application in the medical device industry for bonding syringe with needle.
The major markets for cyanoacrylates adhesives are the consumer and industrial segments. The major drivers for this market include the increased use of plastic in the appliance industry as these adhesives are used in bonding plastic appliances, doors, cabinets, liners and shelves among others. In addition, the growing use of reusable plastics in the appliances industry is also expected to boost demand for cyanoacrylates adhesives in the market. By using cyanoacrylate adhesives, the plastic disposable is minimal and adhesives easy to use on application.
The factors such as limited technical advancement in the cyanoacrylate market and little scope for product developments are expected to hamper the market growth in the near future. North America is expected to experience significant growth due to the rapid increase in growth of end use segments such as transportation and rigid bonding segment. Asia Pacific is also expected to fuel growth of cyanoacrylate market owing to the increasing plastic manufacturing industries in China and Japan.
Some of the market players in Cyanoacrylate Adhesives market include 3M, Henkel, ITW Devcon, Bostik, Lord Corporation, Permabond and Hernon Manufacturing Inc among others.
