Adhesive help


#1

Please Help,

I have a need for an adhesive that will attach two metal objects
together other than solder or rivets. As a favor I am assembling
many gold plated logo plates onto gold filled money clips. I have,
in the past used an adhesive that was oven cured (for about 20 min.
@ 300 degrees). It held better than lead soder and was easier to
use. I cannot find anything like this locally anymore and can’t
remember the name.

Can any of you help me? I need to use a product like this because
I am doing it for very little money and the finish is being damaged
by the heat of the lead soldering. The antiquing on the logos
bubbles a little and I have to replace it, a step I charge for and
need to eliminate.

So I need an epoxy-like material that holds like lead solder or
better. Got some?

Hi Mark, There is a product called “Super Glue” available in the
UK. I think it’s chemical name is Cyanoacyolate adhesive. It’s the
one that sticks your fingers together. I would have thought it was
ideal for you purposes.

You’re right about the technical name for super glue, it’s also
called ‘Crazy Glue’ in the US. FWIW: Be aware though, whatever
it’s called, it’s water soluble! The bond doesn’t dissolve
quickly, but it does dissolve. Not a good adhesive to us e on
anything that may be subjected to moisture.

Yes, I’m sorry it is water soluble, so it would not suit long term
use.
