Acrylate compound used in instant glues to mend broken nails and to adhere glue-impregnated silk or linen to the nail plate, which is then filed to shape the nail. Instant glues are also used in medicine to glue tissues and skin cracks. The glue is also used to attach hair and to glue shoes, plastics, and many other materials. Technical Products and Impurities: The composition of a typical cyanoacrylate glue is 90.6% ethyl cyanoacrylate, 9.0% polymethylmethacrylate, 0.4% hydroquinone, and trace amounts of organic sulfonic acid. The commercial product Krazy Glue was introduced in 1973 and is reported to contain 99.95% ethyl cyanoacrylate and 0.05% undefined acrylic contaminants.The product Super Glue marketed by Loctite Corporation since December 1973 is essentially ethyl cyanoacrylate. Other companies have marketed similar cyano- acrylate adhesives under name Super Glue, causing confusion in identifying Super Glue as the ethyl ester.
