Making Polaroid picture magnets can be a fun experience, a chance to create a gift that is perfect for Mother’s Day, a friend’s birthday, or even Valentine’s Day. This project is simple, quick, and very sweet! Using some Super Glue you can make your adorable pictures into fridge magnets!

What you need:

  • Mounting Board

repair your child's favorite toy  - dump truck image 1

Like just about every other child in the world, my two year old son has a favorite toy – a bright red, plastic toy truck. Preserving the life of this toy seems to be the key to preserving his happiness at the moment. I tried everything to repair this toy, but it just kept falling apart. After a few times of him coming to me with eyes full of tears and hands full of red plastic truck pieces, I discovered Plastic Fuse Future Glue.

What does Plastic Fuse Future Glue do?

Future Glue is a liquid gel bonding compound. That helps secure all plastic parts. Here are some of it’s features:

  • Recommended for polyethylene and polypropylene

  • It sets quickly, allowing repaired items to be used again without much wait

  • Works on porous and non-porous surfaces

  • Repairs furniture, housewares and toys

Future Glue Application

Applying the plastic fuse future glue is quite simple. First you’ll want to clean and dry the surface you want to attach. Then you can apply a layer to the dismantled piece. If it is a larger plastic piece, simply rotate it while applying the glue to make sure the area is fully covered. Lastly, assemble the applied piece and allow 1-5 minutes for the adhesive to set.

From beloved plastic toy dump trucks, to your own car’s dashboard, plastic fuse future glue can be essential in effective repairs. Do you have any uses or ideas for this gel adhesive? If so, please visit our Facebook page. We’d love for you to share your ideas with us!

waterproof epoxy for tiles

How come it always seems like just before a party or gathering, I suddenly remember the handful of household repairs I meant to get to ages ago? Super Glue’s Waterproof Epoxy Adhesive really came to the rescue on one such occasion, the day before my daughter’s 16th birthday I noticed a few missing tiles. I wanted everything to look presentable and pristine in time for the party. I decided to apply the adhesive to my pool tiles due to it’s waterproof and quick-bonding capabilities.

So What does Waterproof Epoxy Adhesive do?:

  • Works underwater or in the presence of water

  • It remains waterproof

  • Acts perfectly for marine projects

  • Produces a strong, flexible bond

  • Sets in just 3-4 hours

  • Works on ceramic, fiberglass, rubber, wood and other materials

After seeing how easily and efficiently I was able to repair my pool, I even had time to use this waterproof epoxy on my shower tiles. Like the pool repair, this project was simple and quick. Not to mention, the 2-part syringe applicator left no spilling or mess when securing these tiles. Thankfully, I was able to get my home repairs done quickly and easily and everything looked great for the party.
