  • Glue Tips        Which Glue is Best?      Super glues (cyanoacrylate glues) are best for surfaces that fit exactly together (no gaps), or where you need  just a small dab for extra security.    Two-part epoxies require mixing, but have  excellent long-term durability (even for foil-back crystals). Great  for production craftspeople!    Specialty & craft glues are each designed  for specific applications. Some are flexible, and many will bond  plastics, foil-back crystal, porous materials (wood, fabric, etc.),  or metal-to-metal bonds.    Resins and sealants can sometimes also be used  as adhesives.          Shop All our Adhesives and Glues    Gluing Hints & Tips      Follow the manufacturer's directions.    Test a small sample and allow it to cure thoroughly before  proceeding.    When possible, use a file to roughen smooth surfaces. This  allows for a stronger grip.    Clean both surfaces before applying adhesive (we recommend  isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab).    Work in a well-ventilated, dry, and dust-free environment.    Extreme temperatures might affect drying time.    Store all adhesives in a cool place.    MSDS (Material Safety and Data Sheets) are available upon  request.          Glues & Cold Temperatures      Avoid shipping glues via Ground during winter months, since  many will lose effectiveness once frozen. This is especially true  of super glues.    Store finished creations in a location that maintains  temperatures above freezing.    To intentionally weaken a super glue bond, place glued object  in a household freezer for several hours. (Epoxy glues also become  brittle in low temperatures, but most will not snap apart as super  glues do).
