COMMON QUESTIONS

  • How much glue should I use?

    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.

  • What’s the difference between super glue and multi-purpose glue?

    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.

  • What do I do if my fingers get stuck?

    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.

  • How do I remove glue from my hands after use?

    Try gently working vegetable oil or baby oil around the edges of the dried glue. Alternatively, try soaking fingers in warm, soapy water. Be very gentle - do not pull glued skin surfaces apart with a direct opposing action as skin damage may result.

  • What should I do if I get super glue on my clothes, my furniture / workspace, etc?

    Try gently working vegetable oil or baby oil around the edges and into the glued area to loosen the bond. Alternatively, try soaking the glued area in warm, soapy water.

  • How should I prepare a surface before gluing?

    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.

  • What glue is best for plastic repair?

    Scotch® Maximum Strength Adhesive and Scotch® Ultra Strength Adhesive work on the widest variety of plastics.

  • What can I do if I have a clogged dispenser?

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

  • How can I prevent glues from drying out during storage in between use?

    The best thing to do is simply seal the cap tightly.
