    2. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
    Nature
    Cyanoacrylate adhesive.
    Hazardous Components in Product for EC
    Component Name Concentration R Phrases Classification
    Ethyl Cyanoacrylate 60.00 – 99.00 R36/37/38 Xi
    3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
    R36/37/38 Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.
    Bonds skin and eyes in seconds. Highly reactive to water. (See Section 4 on first aid).
    4. FIRST AID MEASURES
    First Aid – Inhalation
    Remove affected person to fresh air and if still feeling unwell seek medical attention.
    First Aid – Skin
    Do not pull bonded skin apart. It may be gently peeled apart using a blunt object such as a spoon, preferably after soaking in warm soapy water. Cyanoacrylates give off heat on solidification. In rare cases a large drop will generate enough heat to cause a burn. Burns should be treated normally after the adhesive has been removed from the skin.
    If lips are accidentally stuck together apply warm water to the lips and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva inside the mouth. Peel or roll lips apart. Do not try to pull the lips apart with direct opposing action.First Aid – Eyes
    If the eye is bonded closed, release eyelashes with warm water by covering with wet pad. Cyanoacrylate will bond to eye protein and will cause periods of weeping which will help to debond the adhesive. Keep eye covered until debonding is complete, usually within 1-3 days. Do not force eye open. Medical advice should be sought in case solid particles of cyanoacrylate trapped behind the eyelid cause any abrasive damage.First Aid – Ingestion
    Ensure that breathing passages are not obstructed. The product will polymerise immediately in the mouth making it almost impossible to swallow. Saliva will slowly separate the solidified product from the mouth (several hours).
    5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
    Non flammable product (flash point is greater than 80°C (CC)). If product is involved in fire extinguish with dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide. Trace amounts of toxic fumes may be released on incineration and the use of breathing apparatus is recommended.
    6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
    Ventilate area. Do not use cloths for mopping up. Polymerise with water and scrape off floor.
    7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
    Handling
    Ventilation (low level) is recommended when using large volumes. Use of dispensing equipment is recommended to minimise the risk of skin or eye contact.
    Storage
    For optimum shelf life store in original containers under refrigerated conditions at 2°C to 8°C.
    8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTIONThe TLV for ethyl cyanoacrylate is 0.2ppm(ACGIH, TWA).Polyethylene or polypropylene gloves are recommended when using large volumes. Do not use PVC, rubber, nylon or cotton gloves. Eye protection should be used where there is any risk of splashing.
    9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES
    Physical State
    Liquid.
    Colour Clear Colourless.
    Odour Sharp. Characteristic.
    pH Not applicable.
    Boiling Range/Point (°C) Boils above 100.
    Flash Point (CC) (°C) Exceeds 80.
    Specific Gravity 1.05 – 1.08 at 20 °C.
    Solubility in Water (kg/m³) Immiscible.
    Solubility in Acetone Not applicable.
    Vapour Pressure(mmHg @ 25°C) Less than 0.5 at 25 °C.
    Explosion Limits (%) Not determined.
    10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
    Polymerisation will occur in the presence of moisture.
    11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
    Inhalation
    In dry atmosphere with < 50% humidity, vapours may irritate the eyes and respiratory system. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of vapours may lead to chronic effects in sensitive individuals.
    Skin
    Bonds skin in seconds. Considered to be of low toxicity: acute dermal LD50 (rabbit)>2000mg/kg. Due to polymerisation at the skin surface allergic reaction is not considered possible.Eyes
    Liquid product will bond eyelids. In a dry atmosphere (RH<50%) vapours may cause irritation and lachrymatory effect.Ingestion
    Cyanoacrylates are considered to have relatively low toxicity. Acute oral LD50 is >5000mg/kg (rat). It is almost impossible to swallow as it rapidly polymerises in the mouth.
    12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
    Biodegradable product of low ecotoxicity. Does not contain and is not manufactured with any of the substances listed on the Montreal protocol.
    13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
    Dispose of in accordance with local and national regulations. Polymerise by adding slowly to water (10:1). Dispose of as water insoluble non-toxic solid chemical in authorised landfill or incinerate under controlled conditions.
    14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION
    UN Number None
    AIR (IATA) Not classified.
    Sea (IMO) Not classified.
    Road (ADR)/Rail(RID) Not classified.
    15. REGULATORY INFORMATION
    Contains Cyanoacrylate.
    Danger.

    Attention of users is drawn to the possible hazards from improper use of the product(s).

  • Q: I am having some trouble gluing certain plastics?
  • Most likely, such incidents involve a homopolar or thermal plastic – such as teflon, polyethylene, polypropylene and some polyurethane.

    It is not the plastic that is the problem, rather the oil in the plastics that is. Without treating the oil in some way, no glues including Maverick Bond, can bond these plastics successfully. The Maverick Prime will treat the oil thus allowing for gluing on such plastics. Please see Maverick Prime for more details.

  • Q: Is the bond flexible?
  • Yes.

  • Q: Does the glue deteriorate over time?
  • Generally 3 conditions deteriorate the adhesion over time – moisture, UV and heat. Maverick Bond is both UV and waterproof. Its temperature tolerance is between -70°C to +200°C. Therefore, your average situation, there will be no deterioration in the adhesion over time.

  • Q: The glue does not appear to work
  • Please check either ”Things to avoid for best results” or ”Material Application Tips” for possible errors in the application.

  • Q: The glue has gone hard in the bottle in less then 3 years?
  • This can be caused by either over exposure of the glue to heat or by pinning the nozzle when the nozzle is blocked. Pushing hardened glue back into the bottle can contaminate the remaining glue.

  • Q: The nozzle is blocked
  • This can be caused by either build up of glue overflow around the nozzle or exposure of the nozzle to heat. In such incidences, remove the nozzle from the bottle and alternate the nozzle with the Nozzle of the Maverick Clean and tip the bottle upside down for about an hour. If the Maverick Clean is not available, push the nozzle from the bottle and soak it in acetone or nail polish remover (acetone based) for approximately 4 and 8 hours respectively.

  • Q: Where do I store the glue?
  • Ideal conditions are to place the glue in a cool and dark place. It is highly recommended to store the glue in the fridge, particularly our customers in the hotter climates.

    If you either do not access to a fridge or need the glue to be portable, obtain a container and fill the inside with paper, foam or bubble wrap and place the glue in the center of the container to insulate against the heat
