E6000 Adhesive (big tube) 3.7oz CANNOT SHIP OUTSIDE NZ
This amazing adhesive is world-famous for it's incredible adhesion and performance. It's also known for it's pongy fumes and vapours. For this reason we list a detailed health warning below.
Being so sought after, the E6000 range of adhesives are also frequently imitated. Fake copies of the brand and glue are increasingly available. We have had this verified by Eclectic Products Inc, the inventors and manufacturers of the E6000 range. Buy from a reputable source only! We buy directly from Eclectic Products Inc in the USA and are approved to sell their product that you see here.
PLEASE TAKE THIS HEALTH WARNING SERIOUSLY AND CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING WHEN USING E6000
Contains Perchloroethylene, a chemical known to the State of California as cancer-causing, and a chemical known by the rest of the world as a possible cancer agent. You should not breathe the vapours from E6000. It is also advised that you should use it with open ventilation and/or an exhaust fan to remove the vapours while using it. You can also purchase a respirator from a hardware store (different grades of functionality are available so please check it is suitable for use with your level of exposure to E6000), which is something you would do best to seriously consider doing if you use E6000 heavily in your work or craft. You should avoid skin contact with the adhesive, and you should wash thoroughly after using E6000. You should also not use it around children. Exposure to E6000 may result in nausea, headaches, confusion or instability. This is an amazing adhesive, but you have been warned! If in doubt, please consider our alternative and non-toxic adhesive - Gem-tac.

EASE OF USE
The tube end of this glue is very wide, like an ointment tube, so rather unhelpful if you want to glue straight from the tube for rhinestoning or bead work. There is a way around this, but for fine work you might want to purchase the other E6000 (2oz), or the 1oz that is sold WITH the Precision Tips. Otherwise, you can decant a small amount onto a plastic dish (such as an ice-cream container lid), or pop a suitable small amount into a plastic bag and snip the corner as finely as you like, to squeeze out the desired amount of glue. You can also use a toothpick to swipe some onto the surface you're gluing stones to, or directly onto the stone itself if you can work with tweezers to hold the stone. If doing an area to be completely covered in rhinestones, it is possible to smear directly onto the fabric/surface and start stoning directly there (this can leave the area a little stiff later as it dries though).
Decanting it allows you to use some without the pressure (excuse the pun) of glue continuing to want to come out of the squeezed tube while you're trying to work with what's come out already
Practise makes perfect with this one, but it's an amazing adhesion that's worth the effort if you're prepared for a bit of a learning curve to get it right.
