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).
60mm French auto-lock barrette backs. Superior quality! The genuine article, made in France. Made of AFNOR XC45 steel, meets EU Nickel Directive. Made from strong, heavy-gauge steel. Spring and back are all one part. When gluing a custom design, we recommend 2-part epoxies for the longest lasting hold.
