Bonding Metal: Strong Adhesive to Glue Metal
Adiseal is a high-performance adhesive that has been shown to be the strongest adhesive to bond metal in an independent adhesive strength test. As well as being the strongest adhesive in the metal test, Adiseal was also over 3 times stronger than any other adhesive in the wood to metal adhesive bond strength test. Adiseal provides a strong, flexible, waterproof & durable bond on metal and many other materials.
Best adhesive to bond metal
Adiseal adhesive & sealant was the strongest in an independent metal to metal adhesive glue strength test by Ultimate Handyman.
Strongest Metal to Metal Adhesive Glue Test Results
- Adiseal : 245 psi
- SupaBond : 224 psi
- Tec 7 : 165 psi
- HB42 : 184 psi
- Loctite PL Premium : 202 psi
- Gorilla Grab Adhesive : 166 psi
- Bond It PU18 : 136 psi
- Bond It Saves Nails : 95 psi
As well as Adiseal being the strongest at bonding metal to metal, Adiseal adhesive & sealant is also the best product at sticking wood and metal together. In an independent wood to metal adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman, Adiseal was the strongest product. It was over 3 times stronger than the nearest competitor in the wood to metal adhesive glue strength test. In fact it was so strong that the screws holding the metal sheet down started to rip out forcing the test on Adiseal to be stopped.
During the bond strength examination between hardwood and metal, Adiseal demonstrated remarkable resilience, enduring a substantial pressure exceeding 3123+ psi. In stark contrast, all other product bonds faltered under pressures of 1115 psi or less. The graphic representation below shows Adiseal’s outstanding performance in the adhesive strength test, proving it’s the best adhesive.

Strength demonstration of Adiseal on metal
To demonstrate the strength of Adiseal, we bonded 2 steel hook plates together with the metal glue. They were then used to tow a 2.7 tonne van once the adhesive had cured.
How to stick metal with a metal glue adhesive
How to stick metal with a metal glue adhesive
- Surface preparation
Clean the metal surfaces that will be bonded together. Remove any dirt, grease, oil, rust, or other contaminants using an appropriate cleaner or solvent. Ensure the surfaces are dry before proceeding.
- Apply the adhesive
Apply the adhesive evenly onto one of the metal surfaces. Apply enough adhesive to create a sufficient bond, but avoid excessive application that can cause squeeze-out or messiness.
- Join the metal surfaces
Align the metal pieces together and firmly press them together. Apply pressure to ensure good contact between the surfaces and to spread the adhesive evenly. Sliding the items side to side can help spread the adhesive to cover more surface area.
- Temporary supports
Use clamps or other holding mechanisms if necessary to keep the pieces in place during curing.
- Curing time
Allow the adhesive to cure as per the manufacturer’s instructions. The curing time can vary depending on the adhesive type and specific product. Follow the recommended curing temperature and humidity conditions for optimal bonding strength.
- Post-curing and handling
After the adhesive has cured, avoid stressing the bonded area for the recommended post-curing time. This allows the adhesive to reach its maximum strength. Once fully cured, handle the bonded metal with care and avoid subjecting it to excessive forces or stresses that could compromise the bond.
Tip: To store Adiseal once opened, leave about 1cm worth of product out of the nozzle and store the tube upright in a cool dry place. Adiseal requires moisture for it to cure. The exposed part out of the nozzle will cure creating a cap. To re-use Adiseal, pull the cured part out or cut the nozzle until the uncured part is reached.

Using Adiglue to glue metal to metal
It is also possible to glue metal to metal using our Adiglue. Although Adiglue is less brittle than super glues, it is still not as flexible as Adiseal adhesive & sealant.

The standard adhesive drying time for Adiseal is 24 – 48 hours to fully cure. Curing times can increase in colder temperatures.
Where to buy metal adhesive
It is also possible to attach metal with mechanical fixings. One way would be to drill metal then use mechanical fixings. Adiseal Ultimate metal drill bit drills faster and drills more holes than any other metal drill bit.
Frequently asked questions about bonding metal
You can join metal to metal without welding by using mechanical fasteners, rivets, or adhesive. When using adhesive, ensure both surfaces are clean, removing any oil or grease. Apply the adhesive, press the metal together, and maintain pressure until the adhesive dries. Temporary supports may be needed during the drying process.
Adiseal is the strongest adhesive in an independent test. It was strongest in the metal to metal glue adhesive strength test. It was also over 3 times stronger than anything product in the wood to metal glue adhesive strength test.
The strongest adhesive in an independent metal to metal glue adhesive strength test was Adiseal. It also was strongest in the wood to metal glue adhesive strength test.
Surface preparation is vital for a strong bond. Clean the metal surface to eliminate dirt, grease, oil, or rust. You can enhance adhesion by abrasion with sandpaper or a wire brush. Depending on the adhesive and metal type, additional surface treatments like primers or etching agents may be necessary.
Yes, you can bond different metals together with suitable adhesives. Consider that different metals may have varying surface properties and compatibility. Thus, selecting an adhesive appropriate for the specific metals in your project is essential.
Metal bonding adhesives are versatile and can often bond metal to other materials like plastic, glass, ceramics, or composites. However, ensure you choose an adhesive compatible with both the metal and the material you intend to bond.
