I'm not a chemist. When I superglue my fingers together, by accident, I put them under warm water to peel off the superglue. Why does superglue become less "sticky" at higher temperatures? Is it the water or the temperature?
It is the temperature because as you probably know all kinds of substances get denatured at high temperatures. Another reason could the that the rate of reaction increases after running hot water, therefore taking no effort to take it off. Hope the answer helped!
The glue is sticky because it is uncured. Water is part of the reactants in the chemical curing. Raising the temperature makes the reaction faster. So you both put the glue in contact with a copious supply of water and raised the temperature which make the curing much faster.
