It is a liquid which requires moisture (as found in air) to set.

Like many other adhesives, there are some surfaces it just won't stick to, even when set. The polythene the bottles are made from is one of these. Note the 'greasy' sort of feel that polythene has. Many plastics can only be be joined with solvent adhesives that 'melt' the two surfaces. Superglue doesn't do this.
