What do you use to glue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · What do you use to glue?

Hi all,

I'm curious what you guys use to glue 1)PLA to PLA and 2) PLA to Metal (magnets).

I have been using E6000, which works on PLA to PLA, but I'm curious if you guys have better ideas. I just started trying to use it on PLA to metal magnets, but it seems like it's not as strong, but maybe I'm just impatient and should let it set overnight?

Thanks!

Nancy

I use super glue for PLA-PLA. works well if there is a pin/slot and dries really fast which is nice.

I haven't tried magnets, but I would think epoxy would be a good candidate for PLA - metal.

I tried super glue to glue magnets to PLA and that didn't work. The magnets were too strong.

PVC glue for PLA-PLA works great!

Ahh, superglue. I will give that a try. It turns out the E6000 holds the magnet together well, I just had to let it set overnight. I will try Epoxy if it comes loose. Thanks for the suggestions!

It depends what superglue you use and how hard you press the items together when they are still drying.
