Magnetic glue for repairs and handicraft fun
Can you actually attach magnets with glue? Sure! When doing handicrafts and many other uses of magnets, they are glued to wood, plastic or other materials. In the meantime, however, magnetic adhesives are also becoming increasingly popular in industry. For a convincing result, however, it is always crucial to choose the right magnetic adhesive. In our shop you will find a selection of inexpensive and optimally suitable products for many applications.
Gluing magnets: this is how it works
The good news for hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers is: You can stick magnets on a wide variety of materials. However, there are two requirements:
a) The surface to be glued must be clean.
b) You have to buy suitable glue for magnets.
In order for the magnets to stay on the desired surface for a long time, it is best to thoroughly clean the adhesive surfaces before the adhesive process. They must be free from grease and dust. Dish soap is ideal for this.
Some materials present a challenge. Therefore, when choosing a magnetic adhesive, you should always pay close attention to its properties and which materials it is suitable for. Smooth surfaces are particularly difficult. For this you need a magnetic adhesive with sufficient adhesive force.
Find the right magnetic adhesive
In principle, several adhesives are suitable for gluing magnets. A universal adhesive is sufficient for certain purposes. Elsewhere you should turn to the special glue.
You can also glue magnets with the following products:
2-component adhesive is quick-hardening and can bond many different materials. Its advantage is that it has a short pot life, dries quickly and is then transparent. With a double syringe, which you can also obtain from us, application is child's play.
We also sell high-performance cyanoacrylate-based superglue for magnets. You can use this article to glue plastics, rubber, paper, metal and even absorbent materials like wood or cork with magnets. The special glue starts where the common superglue is overwhelmed. The latter can attack the coating of magnets and is therefore more suitable for handicrafts. You can also use adhesive dots for light magnets. You can also find these in our shop.
Hot-Glue guns are not suitable for gluing magnets because they can have a demagnetizing effect on neodymium magnets. Self-adhesive magnets are an alternative to magnetic adhesives. They adhere to wood, aluminum, plastic and other materials.
Where magnetic adhesive is used
Gluing is so much faster and is far more dirt-free than other joining techniques, but still holds securely. So it's no wonder that it is becoming increasingly popular in many areas. Magnetic adhesives are now also used, for example, to attach smoke detectors.
Tinkerers have always been big fans of gluing. You use magnetic glue to glue magnets to wood or plastic, among other things. Do-it-yourselfers also have many options with the right magnetic adhesive. You can use it to quickly carry out minor repairs or assemble objects, for example sticking a magnet in a cabinet door or on metal or even sticking a magnetic door holder. Car repairs are also a popular area of application for magnetic adhesives. If you have the right magnetic adhesive, you can wear yourself out in and around the house.
