How to repair broken ceramic: The right super glue
So, now you know how to glue ceramic back together, you’re ready to get out the adhesive. But which one is the best for the job?
When choosing a super glue to fix ceramic objects, consider the following aspects:
- Is the adhesive compatible with ceramic? Read the product instructions carefully. If you use the wrong glue, it won’t bond well, and you might cause further damage.
- Are you repairing a chip or crack? Look for an adhesive that’s specially designed for filling gaps.
- Objects such as plates and mugs will obviously come into contact with food, and potentially go in dishwashers or microwaves. Check that the adhesive is safe to use.
- Do you want to paint over the repair? Make sure the adhesive can be painted.
