Aron Alpha® Industrial Krazy Glue Instant Adhesive Technology
Aron Alpha® is one of the original producers of power glues, known as cyanoacrylate adhesives. Though most commonly known to individual consumers under the brand name Krazy Glue®, Aron Alpha’s Industrial Krazy Glue™ is the most diverse line of industrial instant adhesives available for a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications.
A note to help clarify the difference between the term “alpha” (symbolically written as α) and the name Aron Alpha: cyanoacrylates go by several different names, one of which includes “α-cyanoacrylate”. The alpha component refers to the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and it is also used to indicate the first item in a series. We want to make the distinction that Aron Alpha is not a type of a cyanoacrylate, rather we are a brand of cyanoacrylate manufactured by Toagosei!
What is Cyanoacrylate? How Do Cyanoacrylates Work?
Cyanoacrylate – also known as CA glue and super glue – is an extremely fast drying industrial instant adhesive that bonds very quickly with ion catalysts found in water. Because water is present in almost every situation, even common air humidity activates the necessary bond for the proper chemical reaction. When coming in contact with ambient moisture (humidity), this adhesive experiences anionic polymerization. This chemical reaction creates polymer chains of molecules to develop a powerful bond which instantly joins the application surfaces.
Cyanoacrylate adhesive provides easy adhesion to a wide range of materials. The exceptional mechanical strength achieved with only a few small drops makes this cyanoacrylate glue the most commonly used in industrial and commercial secondary joining applications.
Cyanoacrylate provides fast and permanently bonded assembly solutions for a variety of substrates including:
- And much more!

Applications of Cyanoacrylates
The high tensile strength achieved with thermal and heat resistant cyanoacrylate adhesives makes them ideal for applications such as:
- Building, Infrastructure, and Woodworking
- Industrial Assembly
- Medical Device Manufacturing
