There we will explain in detail for which applications and materials the respective adhesive is suitable.
Buy the right glue online
It is easy to lose track of things in the glue jungle. After all, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of different adhesives available to order online. This wide range of products may seem intimidating, but finding the right glue isn't as difficult as you might think. These questions will help you with your search:
- Which materials do I want to bond?
- Is it a large or small adhesive surface?
- How much weight does the adhesive have to hold?
- How quickly does the adhesive surface have to be dried?
Using these criteria, you limit the selection considerably and then only have to choose between different versions of the respective special adhesive.
You might think the best course of action would be to buy an all-purpose glue. In many ways, it can't hurt to have a product like this in your home. However, even he cannot help with special applications. For example, when it comes to applying strong magnets or gluing wood outdoors. For this you need special magnetic adhesives or wood glue that are specially made for outdoor use.
Even the popular superglue is not always the right choice, after all it is only suitable for small areas and can damage neodymium magnets. With large surfaces, it is important that the adhesive does not dry out too quickly. Because the application time is longer due to the larger area. A spray adhesive, for example, is ideal for this.
Buy glue for different uses
The purpose of the respective adhesive often results from its name. If you want to glue magnets, for example, you need magnetic glue. For gluing fabrics, you should buy textile glue. If you want to decorate pieces of suede, you need to buy leather glue. For repairing cups or vases, buy porcelain glue. If the glass is cracked, it is best to use glass glue.
With other adhesives, however, it is not that easy. Epoxy glue, for example, is of course not bought to glue epoxy. Rather, it is a 2-component adhesive made of epoxy resin and hardener. You should buy this adhesive if you are looking for a particularly strong adhesive bond.
In the meantime, gluing is also being advertised more and more often as an alternative to drilling. An attractive idea - it's faster, you don't have to drill ugly holes in materials and it makes less mess. And in some areas, glue is actually a good alternative, for example for wood. You can also buy the right metal or stone glue from us to avoid holes in the mailbox or in marble.
Buy adhesives and store them properly
Whether you buy craft glue or industrial glue, it is certainly important that your glue lasts for a particularly long time. In principle, glue has a limited shelf life; the exact shelf life can be between a few months and two years, depending on the article. That is why it is important that you store it properly. Then it is often more durable than the manufacturer states.
Here's how you should store glue:
- between + 10 and + 20 ° C
It is also extremely important for the shelf life that you reseal opened packaging as soon as possible and remove excess adhesive from the openings beforehand. If there are leftovers on the opening, the packaging will not close airtight and the contents will react with the humidity, making it unusable in the long term.
