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).
