In case of Emergency

Instructions on adhesive removal from delicate facial areas

Eyeball: When the glue touches the eyeball it may take several hours to start to disassociate from the eye protein. Periods of weeping and watering eyes with possible double vision may be experienced until clearance is achieved. Use of warm water to wash eyes repeatedly may assist in the rapid removal process of the adhesive.

Eyelid: In the event that the eyelids are sealed together or attached to the actual eyeball, wash quickly and thoroughly with warm water and apply a gauze patch and do not try to open the eye. The eye itself will open without further action within 1-4 days. To our knowledge, there has never been a documented case of adhesive in the eye causing permanent damage. Do not try to force the eyes open to avoid any further medical conditions.

Skin: Immerse any bonded areas into warm, soapy water. Peel or gently roll the skin apart using a non-sharp object to ease apart (never pull or tug as this may cause ripping of the skin. Remove any cured adhesive with warm; soapy water (it may take several applications). Glue remover, acetone, and nail polish remover based products have also been known to be successful in removal of cured adhesive from the skin.

Lips: If the lips are accidentally stuck (glued) together, apply a generous amount of warm water and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva from the inside the mouth. Start by peeling or rolling (do not pull or tug) the lips apart. Most adhesives solidify upon contact with saliva (moisture) and could adhere to the inside of the mouth. Saliva will lift the adhesive in 1-2 days and avoid swallowing the adhesive after detachment.

We suggest and will highly recommend that all incidents of eye exposure to Cyanoacrylate Adhesive (super glue/adhesives) be discussed with a physician as soon as possible.
