The main difference between E6000 vs. Gorilla Glue is that E6000 is a solvent-based glue with 900% elongation while Gorilla Glue is water-based with an elongation of 600%. E6000 can be used indoors while Gorilla Glue is most effective when used outdoors. Another difference is the time they take to dry.
A test showed that E6000 can sustain the tension of up to 3500 lb/in while Gorilla Glue can sustain a pull of 3626 lb/in. So you can say that Gorilla Glue forms a stronger bond. I myself did tests on E6000 as well, you can read this article for more details: E6000 vs. B7000 | In-depth Analysis

🧪My Hands-on Test of E6000
The fierce smell of the glue does require using it in a well-ventilated area, and it’s not for quick applications. However, it is some of the best stuff out there for small projects that need to stay stuck. I love that these come in small tubes because you only need a tiny bit, and the large tubes tend to dry out before you can use them all. These small tubes are perfect for my smaller projects and prevent any waste, as the glue doesn’t dry up.
I have used this glue on wood, rubber, and metal, and it sticks well. The secret is to let it sit for 24 hours before any use. I highly recommend this glue for various crafting projects, such as craft tumblers, and prefer the one that dries clear. Overall, E6000 glue has proven to be much better than any other adhesive I’ve tried and I will definitely continue using it for my future projects.

🧪My Hands-on Test of Gorilla Glue (Gorilla Super Glue Gel XL)
One example of my use so far was when the decorative silver strip on my suitcase’s pull-out handle was popping out. Before it broke off and caused either an injury to the hand or weakened the handle, I decided to apply the Gorilla Super Glue Gel XL to reattach it permanently. And by permanently, I mean it! This glue should hold that silver strip in place long after the rest of the suitcase is destroyed! This stuff feels tough!
However, there are some precautions to keep in mind when using this glue. For instance, I had to be careful while cleaning the nozzle after each use since moistening the nozzle with a towel can solidify the fresh gel almost instantly onto the nozzle. It is easier to let the gel dry a bit and break off the dried gel. Also, the glue dries fast, so I had to hold the piece in place for the first minute or so to ensure that it sets on an uneven spot with divides.
Nevertheless, this glue has undoubtedly saved me a lot of money and frustration. For example, I had an old wooden cabinet falling apart due to age, and I was able to piece it back together with ease using the glue. Like the direction says, I made sure to clamp the wood pieces tightly together for 8 hours, and it worked wonders.
The product is also versatile since it can be used on different types of materials, such as plastic, wood, and fabric, which is a plus. It is also long-lasting and does not dry out quickly, which is something that I have experienced in the past with other similar products.
