Each glue we offer is designed to solve a unique set of problems. From complex crafts to quick fixes, we’ll help you find exactly the right glue for your project.
It depends on what glue you’re using, and what your project is. For all glues (except super glue), apply a thin, uniform layer that completely covers the surface area to be glued. Apply super glue sparingly. A good rule of thumb for super glue is to apply one small drop for each square inch of surface to be glued.
Both Scotch® Super Glues and Scotch® Multi-Purpose Glue bond many substrates, but super glue dries much quicker. Generally, Scotch® Super Glues are stronger than Scotch® Multi-Purpose glue, but not in all cases. Multi-purpose glue is ideal for use on paper, poster board, cardboard, wood, fabric, metal, aluminum, formica, vinyl, PVC and acrylic. Super glue is commonly used for gluing wood, metal, leather, ceramic, rubber, some plastics and similar materials. Super glue is usually not a good choice for paper.
Don’t panic! Try gently working vegetable oil or baby oil around the edges and into the glued area to loosen the skin. Alternatively, try soaking fingers in warm, soapy water. Be very gentle - do not pull skin surfaces apart with a direct opposing action as skin damage may result. If unable to free bonded area, or if irritation persists, get medical attention.

Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of debris. For smooth, hard surfaces, use sandpaper or steel wool to gently roughen the surface before gluing to get a stronger bond.

For water based glues, soak the nozzle in warm water and then pierce the clog with a paper clip or sewing needle.
