The tensile strengths of various substrate-substrate bonds and substrate-skin bonds using isobutyl cyanoacrylate and β,β,β-trifluoro-isopropyl cyanoacrylate were studied. All materials produced strong bonds with skin with either isobutyl cyanoacrylate or MBR-4197. Tissues adhesives will bind a variety of materials to tissues securely.
