The OptMed Advantage
Methylidene malonate was extensively tested for biocompatibility and adhesive properties in topical and internal applications.
It has many advantages over current adhesives:
Customizable chemistry to facilitate optimization of adhesives to address specific unmet clinical needs
Adheres to wet and dry tissues
Achieves a strong bond while remaining very flexible and elastic
Generates minimal heat during polymerization
Main degradation by-products(1) via hydrolysis generate two safe byproducts, ethanol and glycolic acid.
