The main difference between E6000 Vs. Super Glue is that: E6000 has more strength than Super Glue. E6000 glue has a shear strength of 7000 psi, approximately 48.2 MPa. Super glue has a shear strength of 4000psi, about 27.5 MPa. E6000 takes only five minutes to dry while Super glue takes 2-3 minutes to dry.
Before using these glues, you should know that E6000 is made with a solvent and can stretch while Super Glue is made with water and can stretch less than E6000.
|Shear strength||7000 psi (48.2 MPa)||4000 psi (27.5 MPa)|
|Tensile strength||High tensile strength and shore hardness||Much more strength than epoxy and polyurethane glues|
|Drying time||5 minutes to dry||2-3 minutes to dry|
|Stretchability||Made with a solvent and can stretch||Made with water and can stretch less than E6000|
Several days ago, I did tests on E6000 vs. Gorilla Glue, and here is a part of my experiment on the contestant.
🧪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.

Q: Is E6000 able to bond rubber to aluminum?
A: Yes, E6000 is a great choice for adhering rubber to aluminum because it creates a flexible, yet strong permanent bond between these materials. Just ensure the surfaces are properly prepped and allow adequate curing time.
Q: Can E6000 glue cork tiles to an aluminum patio ceiling in Florida and withstand the heat?
A: This glue has been used to glue fake fireplace logs in a gas fireplace heater, so it should be able to withstand the summer heat in Florida.

Q: How long does this glue last on the fabric?
A: This glue works well on fabric, but it’s important to be careful with the amount used as too much can cause bleeding through and too little may not stick.
Q: Is E6000 completely waterproof for use in a snow globe?
A: Yes, this glue is completely waterproof and can be used in a snow globe.
Q: Can this glue be used to
adhere glass to metal, such as a car window to a metal track?
A: It’s not recommended to use this glue for car windows. It’s best to use an adhesive specifically made for car windows.
Q: Can D6000 adhere metal to wood, such as metal knobs to a wooden coat rack?
A: It’s not certain if this glue will work for this purpose, as it may depend on the amount of strain put on the object.
Q: How can this glue be cleaned up?
A: Use a disposable item such as a toothpick, q-tip, or straw for cleanup.
Q: Would E6000 work to glue foam to the plastic lid of a Pelican case?
A: Yes, this glue can be used to attach the foam to plastic, but it’s recommended to scour the plastic surface with 220 grit first and make sure it’s clean with acetone or 90% alcohol.
Q: What is the maximum temperature that this adhesive can withstand for a ceramic plate setter in a grill/smoker?
A: It’s unlikely that this glue is designed to withstand such high temperatures.
Q: Is E6000 resistant to gasoline and does it harden?
A: It’s uncertain if this glue is resistant to gasoline, but constant exposure to gasoline may erode the bond. The glue remains somewhat flexible when it dries.
Q: What type of glue is E6000 and does it fill gaps?
A: E6000 is a rubber contact glue that can fill small gaps and create a strong bond.
Q: Does this glue dry out the nozzle and lid like super glue?
A: The lid may stick, but the glue doesn’t fuse with the surface like super glue. The nozzle may need to be cleared and scraped out before each new project.
Q: Can E6000 glue stone vases to a marble cemetery monument?
A: It’s unclear if this glue would work for this purpose.

🧪My Hands-on Test of The Original Super Glue
I’ve tried my fair share of superglues over the years. However, I have to say that this particular superglue is my go-to adhesive for any project.
What sets this super glue apart is its unique bottle design. Unlike other brands that come in tubes, this glue is packaged in a bottle that is less prone to clogging and drying out. I’ve had a bottle of this glue last for years without drying out, making it a much more cost-effective option compared to other brands.
One of the things I love about this glue is that it’s easy to use and very precise. The bottle’s spout allows for a controlled drip of the glue, preventing any messes or waste. Plus, the glue dries quickly, so I don’t have to wait around for it to set before moving on to the next step in my project.
But what really sets this glue apart is its strength. Recently, I used this glue to fix a pair of shoes that had started to come apart at the sole. I was skeptical that the glue would hold up, but to my surprise, the shoes held together perfectly. I’ve also used this glue to fix a broken mug and a cracked phone case, and it’s worked wonders in both instances.
In terms of price, this super glue is a great value. It’s affordable and long-lasting, making it a cost-effective option for any project. Plus, the fact that the glue comes in a bottle means that I don’t have to worry about it drying out and becoming unusable after just a few uses.

Q: Is UV exposure necessary for this glue to work?
A: No, it’s not. I’ve tried several brands of superglue, and this one is by far the best. It works on any surface and in any conditions, so you don’t have to worry about UV exposure.
Q: How long can I expect this glue to hold my nails together?
A: From my personal experience, this glue can hold my nails together until I have time to visit my nail technician. It’s the only super glue I trust for my nails.
