Why don't super glue work on metal

Metal glue: You should definitely know that

Overview of the different types of metal adhesives

There are basically three types of metal adhesives: epoxy, polyurethane and superglue. They all have their advantages.

Epoxy adhesives are used, for example, in wood processing and in the manufacture of costume jewelery. Epoxy adhesives are available in different versions: quick or slow drying, flexible or rigid - depending on what the project requires. As a rule, they dry transparent, gray or black and impress with their high heat resistance - both ideal for metal adhesives.

One such epoxy adhesive is Pattex Kraft-Mix Metall - the ideal adhesive for metal. It dries within minutes and makes for an extremely strong, long-term bond. It is completely hardened within 4 hours.

Polyurethane adhesives are water and UV resistant, harden quickly and do not become brittle. After hardening, they can be processed in a variety of ways. Therefore, these adhesives are ideal for repairs around the house, for example on tables, cupboards and floors.

If you work with polyurethane adhesives outdoors, you should make sure that your adhesive cures completely, even in damp environments, is insensitive to temperature and guarantees a strong connection. If all these requirements are met, a polyurethane adhesive is also ideal for bonding metal.

Superglue must not be missing in any household. They glue almost everything incredibly quickly: fabrics, wood, many plastics and even metal. These superglues are great for repairing auto parts, decorative items, small appliances, and more.

With Pattex superglue, you can glue metal and many other materials in no time at all. It's easy to use, dries in seconds and creates a strong adhesive bond that is moisture and weather resistant.
