Cyabond® formulates all of our adhesives and sealants to be as safe as possible while providing all of the performance capabilities demanded by our customers. But adhesives are still chemicals and precautions must be taken to eliminate or minimize contact with skin and eyes. To better support our customers in this endeavor and to ensure that production processes are operated safely, Cyabond® routinely provides training in the safe use of our products. 

Things to Consider When Handling Adhesives

As with the handling of any chemical, appropriate training of all employees who handle adhesives is essential to maintaining a safe working environment. An understanding of these general usage and handling recommendations will go a long way toward ensuring worker safety. 

· General Contact
Avoid skin contact by establishing clean working practices and the use of correct personal protection equipment. The cyanoacrylate adhesives are capable of bonding the skin and eyes in seconds. Protective, impermeable gloves and protective eyeware are essential when working with cyanoacrylates. Absorbent gloves, such as those made of cotton, should never be worn when handling adhesives. Always wash hands after using adhesives - especially before handling food. 
· Eye Contact 
Avoid adhesives splashing into eyes by wearing appropriate safety glasses. 
· Flammability
Some adhesive products - particularly structural acrylics, activators, and accelerators - are flammable and must be stored appropriately and kept away from sources of ignition. Smoking should never be permitted in areas where adhesives are being handled. 
· Cleanup and Disposal
Solvents may be used for cleaning components and equipment but should never be used for cleaning the skin. Uncured waste adhesive must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations, but fully cured material can generally be treated as inert for waste disposal purposes. Please see the appropriate product's MSDS for further disposal information. Spills should be soaked up with sand or other absorbent material and placed in a suitable container for later disposal. 
· Ventilation/Extraction
When using ventilation and /or extraction to control vapor or odor levels, ensure air flow is always away from the operator.
