Question on Epoxy for Sea Glass Arts and Crafts

What is glass epoxy? Do you know of any name brands?

Answer

What you are referring to is an epoxy adhesive for gluing glass and similar materials.

The quick setting kind is normally used. It can be found in many hardware or similar stores.

You'll want to check out Triolyse, which is an excellent product and users rave about it in their reviews.

It's great for glass to glass fusing, mosaics, three-dimensional stained glass and jewelry, among other applications.

In addition, it's also well suited for gluing metal to glass (like jewelry findings) with fast and easy cleanup.

You can even use Triolyse with stone such as granite or marble.

The advantages of epoxy over other glues are several:
  • Stickiness - epoxies bond better than many other glues to various surfaces


  • After drying, the bond is very strong

  • Unlike some glues, epoxies hold their strength with very little weakening over time

  • Expoxies are not affected by exposure to water


Happy hunting,
