How is Krazy Glue® different from ordinary glue?

The traditional white glue you used in elementary school works by filling in the microscopic pores on surfaces and forming a latex bond.

The chemical name for Krazy Glue is ethyl cyanoacrylate - a non-toxic, colorless, extremely fast-acting, strong adhesive. In its pure form, it can lift 2000 pounds per square inch.

Krazy Glue requires a "trigger" to activate its adhesive properties. Fortunately, that catalyst is common water, naturally present on almost any surface on earth. That is why it is important to always keep the glue container sealed tightly when it is not being used.
