Histoacryl® Flexible Topical Skin Adhesive is a sterile, liquid, synthetic tissue adhesive made from n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate and a softener. For easy assessment of the thickness of the layer which is being applied, Histoacryl Flexible is colored blue. Histoacryl Flexible is a monomer and will stay in a liquid form until it comes in contact with a fluid (moisture/blood) that contains hydrogen ions, which it needs in order to harden or polymerize. Precision applicator with optional beveled tip provides enhanced control and improved application, for longer, wider incisions. Flexibilty of an Octyl, drying time and tensile strength of a Butyl. .5 ml plastic ampule / 10 per box. Indicated for external use only.
