Glue/Adhesive Copper/Brass, etc.



2003

I have either a brass or copper antique which has a part which needs gluing. What is best? Also, is there a list of the best glues for different substances, e.g., glass, plastic, aluminum, etc.?

Thanks,

I had a heavy brass lamp roll arm that was broken. I had maybe 1/16th of an inch for adhesive. A sales associate at the hardware store told me about a glue that is so strong that he put some on a wooden board to concrete and it would not separate from the bond. It's called Gorilla Glue =>
It sells in 2 sizes and I purchased the smaller one. The piece I glued weighs about 3 pounds and I was amazed how strong it is.You have to try it.

Removable adhesive for brass? I need to find an adhesive that I can use to glue glass to brass but for just a temporary time.

How about Krazy Glue, Marsha? I think this is easily removable with acetone [←affil. link]

I have used Gorilla Glue with great success on several occasions and found it to be an excellent product but it was always with either one or two porous surfaces. Note that the demonstration was concrete to wood (two porous surfaces) I had passed on the idea of using it for brass on brass until I was convinced it would work. If it does, it is the answer to my problem.

Many thanks -

I have an antique tea kettle made of copper and the spout has fallen off. Can this be fixed using Gorilla glue?

Thanks

Hi, Randy.

I wouldn't use glue on a food service item, and I wouldn't use it on an item that gets heated to stove-top temperature. I think it should be repaired with lead-free solder. Good luck.
