Q.  What are GLUture's active ingredients?
A.  GLUture is a blend of octyl/butyl cyanoacrylate. Cyanoacrylates (cy-a-no-ac-ry-lates) are any of several liquid acrylate monomers that readily polymerize as anions and are used as adhesives in medicine on living tissue to close wounds in surgery. Tissue adhesives are typically either butyl cyanoacrylates or octyl cyanoacrylates. Butyl provides a stronger bond than octyl, but has rigid properties. Octyl, while providing a weaker bond than butyl, is more flexible. GLUture's blend of octyl and butyl creates a strong and flexible bond that contours to the wound site.
