What Is The Best Adhesive To Glue This To That? Glue Guide Chart







Figuring out what type of glue to use to adhere one material to another is important. Since there are endless combinations of things that could be adhered together, there needs to be some sort of guide. For example, we needed to glue a piece of wood to metal that was going to hold over 100 pounds. We needed to find out the absolute best type of glue or adhesive to use to hold these 2 different materials together. We ended up finding a guide for gluing just about any type of material together. It’s called This To That and it will show you the most recommended type of glue to adhere things together. Below we have common materials and what type of glue or adhesive to use to hold them together.

What is the best glue for fixing sisal rope to PVC pipe? I have to wrap 2, 8′ PVC pipes (3″) to make cat scratching/climbing posts. I would normally use Oateys primer and cement on PVC, but I am worried about the fumes staying in the rope and being toxic for the cats.
Hot glue seems like the best alternative, but, given the amount that I have to wrap, would the glue gun stay hot? How far in advance could I apply glue (1minute/5 minutes….)

Many thanks for your expert advice!

Nicole,
Try hot glue guns or use other types of glues depending on the exact application. It will all depend on if the rope or cotton pipping is with or without backing like cardboard or another type of backing. You could also try caulk if you are mounting the rope.

What about gluing pottery to pottery? I have a beautiful pot that split perfectly in half. It is brand new (almost) and such a beautiful plant pot, I hate to throw it out. Would just plain ‘ol super glue work?

Sue,
Yes certain super glues can glue your broken pottery back together. We use LOCTITE SUPER GLUE Professional Liquid on our broken pottery. This method is not 100% waterproof if you are going to use the pottery for plants and fill it with soil and water.
As long as you have all the pieces of the pottery and you align them perfectly when putting it back together, the Loctite can work.
If you do not have all the little pieces of the broken pottery and you will be putting water in the pot, use a waterproof heavy duty silicone so the pottery will not leak water.

Becky,
How to glue rope to rubber? The best would probably be using a silicone adhesive that is made for high heat temperatures. May we ask what is your purpose of gluing the rope to a rubber tire?

If you are still looking for a glass to glass silicone that is designed for marine applications, Techsil IS808 is a great solution.
It was originally made for aquarium sealing, but is suitable for use on a wide range of substrates and different applications.
