Imagine: you’re just about done installing your new tile floor and you notice a crack! Luckily, you came prepared with the best glue for ceramic and porcelain. Grab that porcelain glue and repair it in no time.
You never realize how many ceramic or porcelain objects you have until you break a few of them. Fortunately, there are a variety of porcelain adhesives to help. These glues are used to seal both porous and non-porous materials — including ceramic — that are often found in floors, countertops, cookware and more. This easy-to-use, easy-to-clean glue is powerful enough to tackle the smallest of pieces to the largest of tiling jobs.
If you’re planning to use ceramics as part of your kitchen overhaul, it’s best to reach for an epoxy. This two-part glue is comprised of a resin and hardener, creating a powerful, long-lasting bond. The best thing about this glue is that it’s water and impact resistant and capable of handling all-season weather, sanding and drilling, depending on your project.
You can also use an epoxy as a laminate to create a shiny, modern looking countertop, even adding other features in like stones, for a highly personalized look.
For all the cups, vases, and figurines in your life, it’s best to stick with a fast-acting, heat- and water-resistant glue for non-porous items, so you can get back to drinking out of your favourite mug as soon as possible! To repair a broken handle, complete the following steps:
- Collect all the broken pieces together on a flat surface. This way you’ll know how to place the broken pieces back together.
- Apply porcelain glue to each piece you’re gluing together to enhance the strength of the bond. Allow to dry.
- When the glue has dried, you can remove any unwanted bits of glue using a sharp object to scrape it away.
- For any other clean up or residue, simply use warm water and soap. Voila!
