Try searching the archives here, too.... Conservator's Emporium used to carry it, but maybe only in large quantities. And, who was it, someone on this board was selling in smaller portions (?) Try Hxtal when you search. Or it may be buried in long discussions about glues.... :wink:

I think Pete VanderLaan sells it, but not sure. He's the moderator over at craft web.

Pete handles (or at least used to handle, I know his wife still uses it) a competitive product, which I believe is less expensive and said to be comparable to Hxtal: http://www.guadalupeglass.com/Guadalupe ... 20Website/

Thanks Brad. I couldn't remember, but I do know I have talked to him about it before.

You're the best!

I am a novice fuser, would someone tell me what Hxtal glue is and what it's used for?
Thanks, Dee

Hxtal is a very expensive glue developed for the museum industry... it's claim to fame is that it yellows much more slowly than other glues, thus it's usefulness in conservation.

It is also used in glass repair. I used to do china & glass repair & used it for this. Besides making a very strong colorless glue for mending clear glass, it can be tinted to match colored glass, as well as poured into a mold to replace missing pieces of glass. (Similar to the way two-ton epoxy can be used in in china repair.) It is a wonderful product but expensive & must be mixed in the precisely right proportions.

is Hextal the one that will creep into cracks? For instance windshield stars?
