Selecting the best glass glue
There are many glue products on the market, offering a variety of components and uses. Choosing the right glass glue for the job from the start is the best way to avoid headaches, and it can keep your glass valuables looking brand new.
While standard household super glues can work well for bonding wood, metal, or other common surfaces, using them for repairing glass isn’t always recommended. These glues can work as temporary fixes, but they often have low resistance to moisture and ultraviolet light. When used on glass, they can come apart with cleaning or general use. For glass-based repairs, look for specialized glass glues.
For most common glass repairs, Loctite Glass Glue is the go-to choice. Loctite Glass Glue is great for use with all clear, colored, stained, and tinted glass types. Loctite’s innovative applicator designs make for simple, intuitive, and clean applications, meaning no messy residue on your glass and no sticky fingers. Loctite Glass Glue bonds quickly without the need for clamping or any additional tools, and it dries with a crystal-clear, colorless seal. It’s also water resistant and dishwasher safe, which makes for worry-free household use. Note however, Loctite Glass Glue is not food safe. Its unique butyl formula is designed for durable bonding of glass to glass, or glass to non-porous materials like metals and some plastics.
