It holds up well under various conditions, including heat, moisture, and outdoor elements, giving me peace of mind knowing that my projects will stay intact for a long time.

👋 Hi! This is Ronald. I just published 2 new articles you may enjoy reading. Feel free to keep reading this one or 👇 check out the new articles anytime.
I switched from E6000 to this glue. It runs faster than E6000, but if you’re fast with it, then you’ll love it too! I use it to bling out Crocs and Converse shoes. A little goes a long way.
It holds up so nicely when I used it to rhinestone three different K-pop lightsticks. There is no nasty smell like with E6000, and it dries nice and clear. The cure time isn’t so quick that you feel rushed on your project.
I had an unusual project where I used privacy window film on my shower doors. The film had a static cling for a smooth surface, but my shower doors were textured. I needed a spreadable clear adhesive, and E6000 was too thick and took too long to cure. Aleene’s Liquid Fusion was thinner and spreadable, and I used a sponge-like brush to apply it. I am beyond pleased with how well this adhesive performed. I originally bought two 4-ounce bottles, which was more than enough to complete the project.

However we are unfamiliar with the VBA foam you want to glue, so we recommend you try the shoe glue alternative here.

Then, use a skewer or T-pin to clear away the dried glue from the tip. It’s important to note that if you merely poke a pin through the tip without removing it first, the clog will be pushed back into the glue bottle and eventually block the tip again. Alternatively, you can keep a pin in the spout to keep it open.

A: Absolutely, this adhesive will adhere to a clear phone case made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane. However, if there are any surface scratches, you may need to perform touch-ups accordingly.
📝 My Hands-on Test of E6000
One thing I really appreciate about this glue is how easy it is to use, especially when working with small items. The small size allows me to glue things without creating a big mess. Plus, these smaller tubes last longer and stay cleaner compared to the larger ones. It’s really convenient.
I’ve used many different glues before, but this one has yet to let me down. It works exceptionally well on hard plastic and wood, which is fantastic because I use it on almost everything. Whether it’s repairing broken items or working on my DIY projects, this glue always delivers reliable results.
I have to mention that I’ve had some disappointing experiences with other glues, like shoe goo (see my review here: e6000 glue vs shoe goo), which didn’t work on my shoes. However, the E6000 came to the rescue. It successfully fixed my sneakers and sandals, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s become my go-to glue for all my shoe-related fixes.
One thing to note is the odor of E6000. It can be strong, so it’s important to work in a well-ventilated area and avoid breathing it in excessively. However, considering its adhesive power, the slight inconvenience of the odor is a minor trade-off.
