Gluable Bracelets (Disk-Loop and Square-Loop)
Gluable disk-and-loop bracelets are a perennial favorite for showcasing baubles. Already finished with a clasp, each bracelet blank provides several glue pads so you can easily attach found objects, cabochons, handmade glass, etc. - let your creativity be your guide! Base metal components are made from durable steel with your choice of plating: white, silver, gold, antiqued brass, antiqued copper, and black gunmetal. Simply glue or soft solder embellishments on the glue pads to complete your bracelets. Use only hard solder or 2-part epoxy on sterling silver disk-loop bracelet forms - also available here. Get wholesale prices when you buy in volume.
Test a small sample and allow it to cure thoroughly before proceeding.
When possible, use a file to roughen smooth surfaces. This gives 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 and 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.
Cyanoacrylate (super glue) bonds can be weakened -- allowing disassembly -- by placing a 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).
