Cyanoacrylate Adhesive

Cyanoacrylates

Cyanoacrylates

Elastomer & Plastic Ethylester

Very fast Rubber to Rubber adhesives with extremely good ageing properties. Reliable Plastic to Plastic applications and best choice for Rubber to Plastic combinations. Fluorescent properties are optional.

Ethylester (AE – Cyberbond 2000 series)

The most used Cyanoacrylate adhesive is based on ethylester:

CH2=C-CN-COO-CH2CH3

These grades perform extremely well on plastics and elastomers and they reach very good ageing and strength properties. Over the last years ethyl were constantly improved in their performance.

 Product features being realised by Cyberbond showed improved temperature resistance and the possibility to create more and more flexible layers of adhesives during the polymerisation process. We have created the xtraflex series (partly flexible and temperature-resistant up to 140°C) as well as the new xtra temp series (up to 180°C under certain conditions) which enjoy popularity in industry.

Low Odour Alkoxyeste

Low Odour, low blooming, low outgassing characteristics. Due to its chemistry unfortunately lower strength properties than e.g Ethylesters.

Alkoxyester (AOE – Cyberbond 5000 series)

They are very long-chained Cyanoacrylate adhesives and can be described as odourless.

As a matter of fact the alkoxyester are very user friendly. However, one has to accept that the strength properties are not as good as compared to bonding with ethyl; besides, alkoxyester need longer setting times. Nevertheless, sufficient results in bonding firmly are reached.

CH2=C-CN-COO-CH2-CH2- R1 resp. 2

R1 = -O-C2H5   resp.   R2 = -O-CH3

 When reading the two formulas it becomes evident that alkoxylester is the general for either ethoxyester or methoxyester. There differences in bonding properties between the two groups are marginal. Cyberbond focuses exclusively on ethoxyester. These adhesives also cover another important field of application. Cyanoacrylates tend to show a white coating, the so-called blooming. Surplus monomer drop back to the adherents and leaves white marks. One could even see fingerprints of the user on the mating parts. Cyberbond series 500 eliminate these negative characters.

One should not forget to mention that for various reasons this range of products is more expensive than the standard ethyl ester. This is due to the purchasing costs for the raw ester and the low yield of manufacturing compared to ethylester.

Medical Butylester

Very pure Butylesters for surgery. Also good properties on tension cracking sensitive plastics.

Butyl Cyanoacrylate adhesives are well established in the market and are especially used in medicine.

CH2=C-CN-COO-R1

R1 = CH2CH2CH2CH3

Due to their structure of longer chains, butyl ester does not cure as aggressively and as fast like for example an ethlyester or a Methylester. An exothermic reaction with the polymerisation can hardly be observed. This is the reason why it is preferred when bonding skin of human beings and animals. Cyberbond offers medical products only as raw material but not as a product for the end-user. Another advantage of the butyl ester is the bonding of sensitive parts without having cracks due to tension.

Metal Modified Ethylester

Metal to Metal, Metal to Rubber and Metal to Plastic bonding.

Methylester (ME)

The first Cyanoacrylate Adhesive ever produced was a product based on the short chained Methylester:

CH2=C-CN-COO-CH3

Today the importance of this type is constantly decreasing, because the ageing properties on modern plastics and elastomers do not reach the same performance as Ethyl esters. Methyl is mainly used for bonding metal to metal and fixing difficult to bond Duroplastics. A short term higher temperature and a good resistance against most chemicals are advantages of Methyl.

Due to the fact that metal to metal applications, where Methyl really perform very well, take seldom place in the world of Cyanoacrylate Adhesive (just relative small pieces can be bonded). Ethyl esters are by far more important and give the user a better overall performance spectrum. For this reason Cyberbond developed mainlyEthyl ester based products to bond metal to plastic or metal to rubber applications.

Neomer Technology Modified Ethylester

The Neomer cyanoacrylates are representing the so called surface insensitive grades. Very good results on acidic surfaces like wood, leather, cardboard etc. The higher viscosities are also very suitable for porous materials like ceramic, china etc.

Ethylester (AE – Cyberbond 2000 series)

The most used Cyanoacrylate adhesive is based on ethyl ester:

CH2=C-CN-COO-CH2CH3

These grades perform extremely well on plastics and elastomers and they reach very good ageing and strength properties. Over the last years ethyl were constantly improved in their performance.

 Product features being realised by Cyberbond showed improved temperature resistance and the possibility to create more and more flexible layers of adhesives during the polymerisation process. We have created the xtraflex series (partly flexible and temperature-resistant up to 140°C) as well as the new xtra temp series (up to 180°C under certain conditions) which enjoy popularity in industry.

Xtraflex ( Rubber Toughened ) Modified Ethylester

Partly flexible respectively rubber toughened cyanoacrylates, for dynamic and temperature loaded bonds. These xtraflex grades also guarantee a certain shock resistance. Very good results for Metal to Plastic and Metal to Rubber combinations.

Ethylester (AE – Cyberbond 2000 series)

General Description

Cyanoacrylate Adhesives – short CA – are also known as super glues. Cyanoacrylates are well established in the modern adhesive industry. The most important properties of Cyanoacrylate adhesives are:

- one component adhesives and therefore easy to handle systems,

- solvent free,

- very fast setting time.

First of all Cyanoacrylate adhesives are used to bond metals, plastics, wood and elastomers. By the way, the first Cyanoacrylate adhesive – Eastman 910 - was developed by Eastman Kodak in the 50ies of the last century. Due to their extraordinary adhesion profile – one component, solvent free, very fast setting - Cyanoacrylate adhesives still today reflect the users’ needs. As modern reaction adhesives Cyanoacrylates have established themselves in overall industry proved by years of experience and by positive results. Today there is a wide range of materials in industry that need to be bonded. Cyberbond is developing its Cyanoacrylates continuously to guarantee best results for industrial users. It is important to offer suitable products with good storage conditions.

Parts bonded with Cyberbond will give the user reliable mechanical strength, good overall strength properties on most non porous materials, sufficient temperature resistant figures, improved elasticity figures, good ageing and climatic properties as well as a resistance against ozone. Cyanoacrylates polymerise within seconds due to the humidity in the air. To reach optimal results it is important to work with thin adhesive layers and to keep the mating parts as small as possible as the adhesives reacts very quickly.

Very quickly the industry recognised the performance of Cyanoacrylate adhesives. Due to its efficiency in production the relative high costs of Cyanoacrylate adhesive at that time could be neglected. Thus, success of Cyanoacrylates could not be stopped in the industry anymore. Constant improvement in quality and new production techniques allow the user to choose from a vast variety of different Cyanoacrylate adhesives. Generally, Cyanoacrylates can be depicting as a colourless, clear liquid with a slight distinct smell.
