Rubber cement is unique in a few ways. It is not water based; that is evident as soon as you open the jar. It smells of an organic solvent. You don't want to breathe in a lot of that. Best to use it in a ventilated area.
In the name of the product is what it excels at: "no wrinkle". The solvent in it causes the cement to reduce in volume as it dries, that is, it shrinks, so it makes a snug fit.
It is especially well suited to gluing fairly flexible things - like paper or foil - to many other things, like paper, foil, plastic, wood, metal, etc. The solvent could be reactive to some things, making it unsuitable for some materials. Items glued down with rubber cement can often be peeled away even after the glue has dried; the glue can usually be rubbed off. On some porous substances (some kinds of paper) the glue could soak in and change the color.
It may also be suited for fixing items together in a temporary fashion, in which case the glue can often be rubbed off. But when attached to rigid materials and especially when protected (e.g. covered with a laminate) it is reasonably permanent.
Because it is not water soluble, it might be handy for joining things that need to stay stuck while immersed in water.
It is used a lot by all kinds of crafts. I like to print templates or labels designed on the computer, then trim them with scissors or a paper cutter, then use rubber cement to attach it to metal, plastic, or wood. Then I take it down to the shop and use the printed guides to cut or drill.Read more ›
I think people don't know how good it is, and don't ask for it. Or are discouraged by the name rubber "cement". But it so safe and easy to use, it works on what you want pasted, and any excess applicaton will rub right off where it's not wanted, without any residue or stain. The Product description is absolutely true -- believe it. Do try this glue.
The best part is that it doesn't leave the kind of mess traditional glue does. Once the rubber cement has dried, you just rub off the residue left on the sides, and you're done. The only issue I had with this product is that the bottle claims it "dries clear", yet when you look really closely on your paper, any place where there was rubber cement is now a different color tone than the rest of the paper. It's a really subtle stain, but I could notice it. If you want a perfect project that doesn't have those light stains, avoid applying rubber cement anywhere other than between the two items being pasted together.
Oh, and it's probably very obvious, but make sure to work with this in a well-ventilated environment. The fumes this releases is not good for your health.
Still a top quality rubber cement glue.
An excellent glue for crafting and sticking all types of things, especially paper to paper. Not for kids, as it is a fire hazard if used improperly. It is a lasting glue that leaves paper wrinkle free, and it is acid free for photo and important document use. Items can be removed and moved but it must be done with great care.
I do vast amounts of genealogy and past photos, news items, and such, onto record pages. My wife uses this as a hobby glue for many things such as scrapbooking and greeting card making. Excellent choice for both. A fantastic feature not available with almost any other glue is the fact that if it squishes out the side of a glued item, once it is dry it will rub off with no sign of residue. Crafting includes gluing ribbon, cloth, plastics, buttons, feathers, leather, almost anything.
Very useful for business display pieces needing glue.
But since it is not water base, test it first on any surface material you are unfamiliar with.
Items can be glued by applying to one surface and make contact while wet, application to both surfaces and attach immediately, or both surfaces, allow to dry, then put into place, but be sure of location prior to touching. It will not move easily once the first touch takes place.Read more ›
