Glue for Ceramic
About Ceramic Bonding Adhesives
Ceramic is a unique substrate that can prove challenging to bond when it comes to both structural and hot melt adhesives. When working with ceramic, you're likely completing a project that must hold up to regular environmental changes with a bond that remains invisible and flawless all the while. When choosing an adhesive you want it to be strong enough to create a watertight bond, flexible enough not to snap under multi-directional pressures, and clear enough to not be easily seen - even years into the future.
Epoxy for Ceramics - Chemical & Temperature Resistant
Two-component epoxy and MMA adhesives feature superior stability, temperature and resistance, and curing times. The high stability combined with the ability to resist harsh chemicals and extreme heat make epoxy and MMA an excellent solution in industrial settings for ceramic bonding.
Super Glue for Ceramics - Strong & Waterproof Bonds
Super glue, or cyanoacrylate, is a non-hot melt adhesive and is a great candidate for ceramic substrates due to its strong, clear, and waterproof bond. Super glue can be found in a variety of viscosities, so it can be adapted to fit any use.
Silicone Sealants for Ceramics - Flexible Bonds
Because ceramic doesn't swell and shrink the way wood does, a flexible adhesive like silicone is a great fit in high-stress bonds, such as those in rigid ceramic applications. Silicone is a powerful adhesive, but its high flexibility and long curing time compared to many other hot melts make it a better fit for ceramics.
Hot Melt Glue for Ceramics - Easy to Use & Cost Effective
Hot melt glue sticks are easy to use and cost-effective. Not all hot melt glue sticks are strong enough to take on the job of bonding ceramics. Make sure to find a glue stick that is specially formulated for difficult substrates like ceramic, metal, or glass.

All Glue for Ceramic
- First, triple-check that the ceramic is clean so that the adhesive will stick to it instead of any oils or solvents on its surface.
- Next, rough up the areas to be bonded with an abrasive, like wet and dry paper to help the glu adhere stronger and longer.
- Finally, be sure you're using an adhesive that is specially formulated to work on a non-porous, hard surface like ceramic.
