About Krazy glue (all-purpose glue), it is very famous product to apply everywhere nowadays. The invention of Krazy glue dates back to 1942. The inventor, Doctor. Harry Coover, was at Eastman Kodak, a world-renowned company for cameras and related products.
Dr. Harry Coover’s job is to isolate a transparent plastic that makes the weapon aiming accuracy higher. During World War II, the material was of great use. For a time, Dr. Coover was frustrated because the material, called cyanoacrylate, was too sticky.
Once, in a fit of anger, Doctor. Coover threw cyanoacrylate out of the window and continued to work as sweat poured down from his face. At this point, Dr. Coover was completely unaware that he had invented one of the most viscous Krazy glue (all-purpose adhesives) ever invented. Ironically, Dr. Coover’s efforts on the sights were in vain because the two American Atomic bombs ended the war. The explosion of atomic bombs is so extensive that there is no need to aim at it.
A few years later, Doctor. Coover resumed his original invention and realized the ecstasy of recovery. It was thought that perhaps Dr. Coover noticed that the containers used to hold cyanoacrylate still stuck to the bottom of the trash can, and he did everything he could not to take them off, so he discovered the wonders of the material.
Krazy Glue born
In 1958, Dr. Coover finally convinced his boss of the market potential of cyanoacrylate, and soon Kodak introduced a glue called Eastman 910.
Kodak racked its brains to promote the product, and someone at the company came up with an idea: Hanging a car over the street on a crane, misleading people for using the Eastman 910. The trick has been surprisingly effective. Later people called this glue “Krazy Glue”. “Krazy” is actually borrowed from the meaning of crazy in Greek language. The early slogan of the Eastman 910 was, “Remember, you can only use it once before it solidifies completely on the pipe!” Today, the Krazy glue (all-purpose adhesive) is still a best seller.
