Catheter entrapment within polymerized glue is a long-acknowledged risk associated with the use of adhesive cyanoacrylates. As primary prevention, care should be taken to remove redundant loops in the catheter to ensure the availability of quick and controlled pullback as needed.
As is well known, the mechanism of anionic polymerization of alkyl cyanoacrylates in aqueous dispersions containing micelles includes an initiation via hydroxyl ions in the aqueous phase, which react with the monomer near the swollen micelles surface, giving rise to a particle [25].
Most hub-to-cannula designs today are said to use epoxies, cyanoacrylates or light-cure adhesives to ensure a high strength, permanent bond.
Cyanoacrylates are one-part, room-temperature-curing adhesives.
The systems discussed here include cyanoacrylates and methylene malonates.
(2003) studied the irritating potential of 2-ethyl-cyanoacrylate, 2-methyl-cyanoacrylate, 2-isopropyl-cyanoacrylate and 2-metoxiethyl-2-cyanoacrylate based on the strong irritating odor as well as the lacrimogenic effect of the cyanoacrylates during polymerization.
But he abandoned these cyanoacrylates as unsuitable for his most pressing need and only revisited their usefulness when working on a jet canopy project in 1951.
He covers unsaturated polyester resins, poly(urethane)s, epoxy resins, phenol/formaldehyde resins, urea/formaldehyde resins, melamine resins, furan resins, silicones, acrylic resins, cyanate ester resins, bismaleimide resins, terpene resins, cyanoacrylates, benzocyclobutene resins, reactive extrusion, compatibilization, rheological control, grafting, acrylic dental fillers, and toners.

Almost by accident, he had invented cyanoacrylates, which were to become known more widely to consumers as superglues.
On display will be examples from the Intertronics range of ISO 10993 and USP Class VI adhesives which include DYMAX UV curing products and cyanoacrylates plus Opti-tec and Polytec epoxies.
