Resistant to high temperatures Waterproof Dries clear Commercial strength adhesive for use in home renovations. Requires good ventilation Can harden at the tip when not using. We like that this glue is acceptable for objects that you will use around heat. For instance, a broken handle on your coffee cup will hold up well once you let the cup cure. Consequently, you may microwave the cup to reheat the coffee without worry that the handle will fall off when you choose this glue.
You may have a hard time choosing which one of our Top Seven Glass Glues will work best for your project since there are many helpful features with each option. We find that we keep a couple of these items around because some glues work better than others for heat, clean-up, and strength. Depending on our project, we may use a heavy-duty glue for large areas. Unless you are using the Weldbond Universal Adhesive, we recommend letting the adhesive dry completely before you try to remove it. You can use a razor blade or a knife to cut the glue after a day or two with most of the items on our list. For the Weldbond, you may want to use a damp rag to wipe off any adhesive that leaks out immediately. All of the glues on our list will remain clear once they dry.
You may want to follow the manufacturer’s instructions about how to properly cure the adhesive because any dust or dirt that comes in contact with the substance as it is drying can stick to the surface and cause the glue to become cloudy. For instance, using E6000 Craft Adhesive in a woodshop may allow sawdust to coat the wet adhesive as it cures over the initial five minutes or while drying over the two to three full drying time. You might get the best results by taking the item out of the wood room before gluing it. How do I get the glue to come out of the applicator tip? You may find that it is easy to snip off the tip of the applicator with a pair of scissors, a pocket knife, or a razor blade. The top eighth of an inch is about all you need to remove for a consistent flow. Should the tip have glue dry to the top after you open it, you might want to try pulling on the dried material to see if it will come loose. If it remains stuck, you can try inserting a needle into the center of the clog. And try to remove it or poke a hole through the middle. You may also snip a little more of the applicator tip-off of the top to see if that works before you decide to replace it. All of the products on our list have various curing times. The E6000 adhesive takes five minutes to set before you can stop holding the item together giving you plenty of time to readjust anything that does not go right into place. We suggest keeping a long and short curing product around so that you have options when something breaks. Can you use objects glass glue in the dishwasher or microwave? Would you need to put your favorite teacup back together or the dish that your grandmother gave you, we feel that Loctite is our favorite pick. This product is temperature resistant and waterproof. E6000 is another option that you may like for items like curtains or fabrics that you plan to wash or dry. Depending on whether you use adhesive to glue tiles to the wall or put together model cars may help you decide which glue to keep around. For smaller projects like crafts and building small-scale replicas, you might have the best luck with adhesives like the Bob Smith Industries Maxi-Cure Insta-Set Combo Pac. Do you need to clamp the broken pieces together when you add the glue? You may like that these adhesives free up your workspace when you work in a small craft room or workshop. You can use your vice or clamps for other purposes while your broken items dry. For painting, the E6000 binder may be a good choice because it will accept paint when it is dry.
You may want to make sure that you wait the entire two or three days of curing before adding the paint.
