Loctite Brand History From 1963 till today

Super glue was invented in 1942 by Dr. Harry Coover. He was part of a wartime research team developing clear plastics for use in precision gun sights. They unintentionally discovered a chemical compound of extraordinary stickiness, but they initially saw no use for it in their research.

Only later did Coover see the potential in cyanoacrylates as a glue, and it was produced for commercial sale in 1958 by LOCTITE. It quickly became hugely popular as a useful and versatile household adhesive.
