Per industry literature I found that mineral oil is used to loosen out "super glue" and aid in removal from skin. I am exploring the chemistry of this loosening and I am intrigued. Please help me find which option applies here:
- Does the mineral oil disturb the cohesive forces of the cured cyanoacrylate?
- Does the mineral oil interact with the oil on the skin to loosen the cured adhesive and thus break the bond between skin and cyanoacrylate?
- Does the mineral oil break the bond between the skin and cyanoacrylate by another mechanism?
Based on this answer, I am trying to find out if mineral oil will loosen the cured cyanoacrylate on a different substrate as well, namely PVC plastic. Please help!
