How much Krazy Glue® should I use?

You may be able to use less than you think. We’ve tested Krazy Glue and discovered that one single drop can hold up to 2,000 lbs.—without even pulling apart. With this said, using too much glue or spreading glue will result in a poor bond or no bond at all.

Krazy Glue bonds with the surface of a part on a molecular level. If the surface has dirt, grease, or oil on it the bond will be formed with them instead of with the part itself. Therefore pieces to be glued should be clean and dry before applying Krazy Glue.

Dampen porous ceramics on one side and apply Krazy Glue to the dry side only. Wood surfaces should be sanded or planed flat with paint, varnish or glue residue removed.
