The OptMed Advantage

AT the LAb

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.
