Over the past years I have tried many different brands of super glue.
Other than a great job of getting " sticky fingers " none of them have really worked ( stuck) that well.
Any suggestions ????
Thanks in advance..

On what material(s)?

Because of shelf life and tip clogging issues, buying the cheapest brand and smallest size of super glue is often the best strategy. Just consider the very small tubes as "disposable" after initial use.

Mainly on plastics..I do buy the small ones because I have learned that regardless of the cap most all may as well be a " One time use only ".

They might recommend something that is overpriced though, so take it with a grain of salt.

I found that gorilla glue (link) works really well.

Ive had the same problem. Superglue never seemed to work like they show on TV. About the only thing it works well on is skin.
Plastics especially tend to not work with superglue or even epoxy.

However the last few years theres been more varieties and Ive tried the gel type that claims to specifically work with plastic and its far better than the usual super glue. Its no where near the super duper glue they make it seem like on TV but its way better than the usual stuff.

Ive never tried gorilla glue but it looks better than super glue when you see the dried examples they have in the store. Has a kind of epoxy like feel since it dries super hard.

Having done major repairs, for glass there is no other product better than Loc-tite's glass super glue. Sadly enough, can't find it anymore. If anyone does, let me know. Loc-tite is my choice.

When I use any type of super glue I gradually cut the tip down. The stuff in the foil tubes is better than the plastic drip-type dispensers.

One trick is to make sure before you glue that you get a good bond. If possible, put one portion in a vice or a set of vice grips. As soon as the bond begins, if you shift, it won't work. When this happens, remove the old glue and try again. Lightly sanding the area beforehand and cleaning with lacquer thinner will help. Just like solder, glue wants -- even yearns -- for cleanliness.

On metals and even heavy-duty plastics, there's nothing better than JD Weld. You can use quick-set or lengthier set. Quick set is good for clean simple repairs; use the long term for issues that may take a few to get the adhesion cleanly aligned. Again, lightly sand first.

I once repaired a lawn mower gas tank leak with JB. It's that good.




Gorilla Glue is the strongest but takes a while to set, you can get it at any Ace Hardware.

Gorilla glue has been great.

Used JB Weld as a roadside repair on my cars oil pan three years ago when it sprung a pinhole leak by the exhaust manifold. I recently junked the car -- JB still intact. Great stuff, but not really a glue.

Gorilla glue..... can be purchased @ HomeDepot.

Make sure you read instructions before use.
