  • Best glass glue?

    Hi all,

    I am looking for recommendations for the best glue for bonding glass onto glass (I want to glue some glass beads onto a mirror).... it needs to be very very clear and strong of course.

    Many thanks!

    Glass bond
    Available from home base and probably other DIY outlets. Last time I bought some it was in a yellow and black tube.

      Thank you That looks nice and easy to get hold of, assuming its the Loctite stuff.... says it cures by UV rays so fingers crossed we get some sunny days!

      Thanks again,

        I've been using a UV daylight curing glue called Fixsal for a year or more now with good results. Think it's more trade sizes, but found some 2g syringe versions on ebay which were perfect for me and lasted very well indeed. One thing I've found very useful are those little UV torches, to help get the bond cured very quickly on darker days and night. Helps to save slippages.

          Thank you and great tip about using the UV torches... certainly going to need that judging by the weather we are having.

            try silicone. it´s transparent and you can wet it as many times as possible the glass won´t come off

                I have always found B&Q's own label UV glass glue to work very well

                  Just a quick update on this. I tried the Loctite 'Glass Bond' and found the tubes were very small and I was getting through lots of it (I have been gluing a lot of glass). Anyway, I bought some Wilkinsons own label glass glue and it seems to be exactly the same glue and you get more of it for your money! It is brilliant, sets within seconds when exposed to direct sunlight and is very clear.

                    i use a glue called "serious" glue. its made by bostik. i use it to stick glass to ceramic, it dries clear and has a silicon feel to it once its is cured.

                    Good Luck!!
                    If you already know exactly what you are going to do, whats the point in doing it?

                        I use Epoxy Adhesives as they have excellent adhesion to glass on variety of surfaces.

                        You can get this adhesive at parsonadhesives.com

                              Since the original post was 7 (seven) years ago, I expect the project is completed and in use by now.
