Low Odor. Low Bloom. High Performance
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.
