Our Best Glue For Rubber: Strong Adhesive Bond
Adiglue is our best glue for rubber. To glue rubber or to seal rubber there are many different types of glues, adhesives and sealants available but which is the best sealant or glue on rubber. Both Adiseal & Adiglue will bond & stick rubber to many different materials including glue rubber to metal. Adiseal is also a great sealant for rubber as well.
Best adhesive for rubber
Is it possible to bond rubber using an adhesive? The answer is yes, if using the record breaking strongest Adiseal adhesive & sealant.
Adiseal adhesive & sealant was the strongest adhesive in an independent adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman.
In the independent adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman, Adiseal was over 3 times stronger than the nearest competitor in the wood to metal bond 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.
Strongest Adhesive Test Results
- Adiseal : 3123+ psi
- SupaBond : 1115 psi
- Tec 7 : 1016 psi
- HB42 : 942 psi
- Loctite PL Premium : 873 psi
- Gorilla Grab Adhesive : 862 psi
- Bond It PU18 : 582 psi
- Bond It Saves Nails : 411 psi
Some of the other reasons why Adiseal is great when trying to to bond rubber:
- Adiseal stays permanently flexible so it will absorb any vibration and allow any items to expand & contract without the adhesive becoming weak.
- Is a waterproof sealant and waterproof adhesive so it is also suitable for use outdoors or indoors. It works in dry, wet and even underwater.
- Has very high gap fill properties.
- Has high initial grab meaning temporary supports may not be required while the adhesive cures. The Adiseal Hi-Grab has even higher grab than the standard product.

Best Glue on Rubber
Adiglue is our best glue on rubber. It’s a high performance industrial strength glue that outperforms other glues and super glues. Adiglue provides a stronger and less brittle bond than super glues.
How is Adiglue better than super glue?
Adiglue stands out as a strong adhesive because it’s nearly 100% pure cyanoacrylate, while most super glues are solvent-filled to reduce manufacturing costs, leading to rapid but weak and brittle bonding. Adiglue’s solvent-free formulation ensures it won’t dry up in the bottle for 18 months even when left open, and to clean the nozzle after use, simply use Adisolve on a tissue.
As Adiglue is not filled up with solvents, Adiglue cures quickly but slightly slower than other super glues. This results in a bond that is a lot stronger than super glues as well as being less brittle.
Super glue gel
Adiglue’s thicker gel formulation provides superior gap-filling capabilities compared to other glues. This thicker gel formulation not only allows Adiglue to excel in applications where standard super glues might fail but also makes it easier to apply and less messy.
Adiglue is a completely clear glue and stays clear once it has cured. This is very useful when a clear glue is required like a glue for glass.
Glue strength demonstration
To highlight Adiglue’s exceptional strength compared to other super glues, we’ve bonded MDF wood blocks and house bricks using Adiglue, a feat that’s not achievable with alternative glues.
Adiglue will bond rubber to the following items
Adiglue will successfully bond rubber to the following items:
- Wood (porous wood like MDF require sealing first with Adiglue Activator)
- Stone (porous stone requires sealing first with Adiglue Activator)
- Synthetic Materials
- Most Plastics
- Concrete (once sealed with Adiglue Activator)
- Many other items
Porous materials will require sealing first with Adiglue Activator. This will stop the material soaking up the liquid glue.
How to glue rubber
How to glue rubber
- Prepare the Rubber Surfaces
If the rubber surfaces are smooth, they may not provide good adhesion. In such cases, lightly sand the bonding surfaces with fine-grit sandpaper to create some texture. This will help the adhesive adhere better.
- Clean the Rubber Surfaces
Wipe down the sanded rubber surfaces with isopropyl alcohol or acetone using a clean cloth or paper towel. This step is crucial to remove dirt, oils, and contaminants that can hinder adhesion.
- Apply the Glue or Adhesive
Typically, you’ll apply a thin, even layer of adhesive to one of the rubber surfaces. Avoid using excessive adhesive, as it can squeeze out when you press the rubber pieces together.
- Join the Rubber Pieces
Carefully align the rubber pieces, press them together firmly, and consider using clamps to hold them in place while the adhesive cures. Ensure proper positioning, as repositioning after bonding can be challenging.
- Allow the Glue or Adhesive to Cure
Curing times vary depending on the adhesive and environmental conditions. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended curing time, which can range from a few minutes to several hours, as specified for the adhesive in use.
- Test the Bond
After the recommended curing time has passed, gently test the bond to ensure it is secure. Avoid putting excessive stress on the bond immediately after gluing.
- Clean Up Excess Adhesive
Use a clean cloth or paper towel moistened with acetone or isopropyl alcohol to carefully remove any excess adhesive that may have squeezed out during bonding without damaging the bond.
