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).
13mm white plated steel disks with bail for gluing and soft soldering. Approximately 18mm total pendant height, 13.3x0.5mm disk. White plate is the "silver" color most often seen on base metal jewelry and findings. White plating is also known as "imitation rhodium" and "silvertone". Bail slightly open at the back, for slipping over thin chain or cord. Not meant to be opened (likely to crack the plating), but if you want it closed, gently squeeze it shut and apply some glue.
We needed a sturdy, glue-on bail for clay ornaments. This 13mm round bail was perfect for our 15mm head on our angel ornament! They adhered very well to the clay using Super New Glue. They are a little pricey but perfect for our project.
