Glass and Ceramic Glues

By: Fix-It Club

Most multipurpose adhesives will bond glass and ceramics, but specialized versions often bond them more securely. They include:

  • China and glass cement: Many cements are sold for mending china and glass. These cements usually come in tubes. Acrylic latex-base cements have good resistance to water and heat. Clamping is usually required.
  • Silicone rubber adhesives: Only silicone adhesives made specifically for glass and china are recommended. They form very strong bonds, with excellent resistance to water and temperature extremes. Clamping is usually required.
