Glass Glue

Postby LDGlass » Mon Apr 05, 2004 10:47 pm

I have not been able to find the perfect way to bond a silver bail to the back of a fused glass pendant. Can someone suggest a type of glue or epoxy that works best for them? I have been using 2-part epoxy but I've noticed that it doesn't take too much force to separate it from the glass. Any suggestions are greatly appreciate. Thanks in advance! :lol:

Don't know about perfect, but E6000 gets recommended a lot. Trick with that is to leave it alone for 24 hours. (sets quicker than that) silicone is also highly recommended. Good luck.

Laura,
I had the same problem with pendants. I found that the earrings worked just fine with the 2 part epoxys. For the pendants I have changed to Dymax 621. I have been very pleased with it. I use an activator with it 535-A. I got my glue from Dewey Associates, 1-800-448-2306.
They will not come apart and they set up fast. I have to be careful to get them right the first time. Claudia
