Default CA Glue Problem

When I apply it, it turns the surrounding areas powdery white sometimes I can remove it. It looks like a burn mark of some sort. What is going no? How can I stop it?

Does it on everything.

What brand of glue is it? Typical super glue has a surprisingly short shelf life when it isn't refrigerated. I always try to get the freshest stuff I can find. Look for glue that has an expiration date so you know it's good.

What are you trying to glue with it? I'd say that is normal on some materials. You can't use CA to glue anything and everything. For an example - no go for Lexan.
