Cyanoacrylate Adhesives

The future trend of instant adhesive- very low odor and low whitening

Cartell Chemical has been at the forefront of creating the most advanced cyanoacrylate adhesives by developing a new “Crackless” process for the synthesis of different cyanoacrylate monomers through research and development. This new method utilizes much lower temperatures and the reaction takes place in a simple aqueous solution, so as to create functional cyanoacrylate monomers with a much higher yield, which is where the traditional process falls short.

Methoxyethyl Cyanoacrylate, a.k.a. MECA, has been chosen by Cartell as the main product to be produced using the new technology. MECA enjoys the benefits of low odor, low blooming, flexibility, and fast setting times, which are ideal for both consumer and industrial markets. Not only does the MECA enjoy additional benefits in physical performance, but it is also more user and environmentally friendly. 

Today, Cartell produces a comprehensive MECA range that is comparable to Ethyl-2 Cyanoacrylate adhesives but minus the whitening and smell characteristics. Methoxy instant adhesive not only has additional advantages in physical properties but also has a better operating experience for operators and is more environmentally friendly. 

This instant adhesive is more advantageous than the traditional ethyl instant adhesive, which opens up a new vision and business opportunities for the instant adhesive market.

UV Cure Cyanoacrylate Adhesives

It is odorless light-curing cyanoacrylate adhesive. It combines the light curing mechanism with the cyanoacrylate technology, allowing the glue to be cured instantly when exposed to UV light. This dual curing mechanism is ideal for application where “Cure on demand” is required. This glue will also cure by itself without UV light.
