In general, these are colorless, transparent adhesives. Cyanoacrylate glues set rapidly (5 seconds - 3 minutes) upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation or moisture. When cured, they form an extremely strong bond that is fairly insoluble. Cyanoacrylate glues has been used for gluing glass, ceramics and other hard materials.
