Best mirror adhesive

There are many adhesive available that might stick a mirror or glue mirror to wall but not all adhesives are suitable for use as a mirror adhesive.

Why a mirror requires special mirror adhesive?

The reason why most adhesives are not suitable to stick mirror is because the reflective backing of the mirror is a very sensitive material. Most adhesives will attack & damage this material. This is the reason why when trying to stick mirror to a wall or any other surface, mirror’s require special mirror adhesives that is safe & does not damage the reflective mirror backing.

Why Adiseal is the best mirror adhesive

The reason why Adiseal is the best mirror adhesive is because it’s the strongest mirror adhesive available. It is also safe for use & does not attack the mirror backing when trying to stick the mirror to any surface. In an independent adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman, Adiseal was the strongest adhesive, way stronger than anything else. More details on this can be found on the Adiseal page.

Adiseal does not contain any solvents or isocyanates. As well as Adiseal being the strongest adhesive available, it’s also very safe at the same time. It stays permanently flexible & is waterproof as well. This allows Adiseal to bond mirrors in bathrooms & outdoors as well. Adiseal also has high initial grab eliminating the need to put temporary supports for most applications.

Tip : When using a waterproof adhesive when trying to bond something to a vertical wall & there is a chance water might run behind the item, it’s best to apply the adhesive in thin vertical strips. This allows any water to run down between the adhesive instead of building on top of the adhesive. In cold temperatures, this water can turn to ice which expands putting additional pressure on the adhesive.


Flexible adhesive

The problem with non flexible adhesives are they are brittle and become weak quickly. The flexibility of Adiseal allows it to soak up vibrations as well as expansion & contraction of the item stuck due to temperature changes. This means that Adiseal not only is the strongest adhesive but also provides an extremely durable bond that lasts a very long time.


How to stick mirror to a surface

When sticking a mirror to any surface, to get the best bond it is very important to apply the adhesive to clean surfaces. The maximum strength of any adhesive or sealant will only be as strong as the weakest surface it is being applied to. If the products are being applied to a dusty surface then it will only be as strong as the dust that is stuck to that surface. Making sure the surfaces are free of any dust, grease, paint or any other dirt will allow for a much stronger & longer lasting bond. Adisolve is the ideal product to clean a surface & remove old solvent based adhesives & sealants.

Do not use the Adisolve product on the mirror backing.

Once the surfaces are clean, with Adiseal simply apply the adhesive to one surface and push the mirror firmly but carefully to the surface. There should be no requirement for temporary supports but if the mirror does start to slide down, place temporary supports until the mirror adhesive has cured. Wipe off any excess Adiseal with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Stick mirror to wall

To glue mirror to wall, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean. Simply apply Adiseal to one surface and push the mirror carefully to the wall. Temporary supports may be required to stop the mirror sliding down, until mirror adhesive has cured. Adiseal can take 24 to 48 hours to fully cure, but will grab the mirror before it’s cured. Remove any excess Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Stick mirror to wardrobe door

To glue a mirror to a wardrobe door, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean. Simply apply Adiseal to one surface and push the mirror carefully to wardrobe door. It is advisable to take the wardrobe door off and place it horizontally before applying the adhesive and sticking the mirror to it. If the wardrobe door is vertical then temporary supports may be required until the mirror adhesive has cured. Adiseal can take 24 to 48 hours to fully cure, but will grab the mirror before it’s cured. Remove any excess Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Stick mirror to tiles

To bond a mirror to tiles, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean. If the mirror is going to be stuck onto a vertical surface, apply the mirror adhesive in thin vertical strips. Carefully push the mirror onto the tiles and allow the adhesive to cure. Temporary supports may be required to stop the mirror sliding down before the adhesive has cured. Remove any excess Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Glue mirror to wood

To glue a mirror to wood, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean before applying the adhesive. If the surface of the wood is not flat matching the surface of the mirror then cut, file down or sand the wood so that it closely matches the mirror surface where the adhesive will be applied.

Simply apply Adiseal to one surface & push the mirror carefully onto the wood. If the wood is vertical, then temporary supports may be required to stop the mirror sliding down until the adhesive for the mirror has cured. Remove any excess Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Wing mirror adhesive

Adiseal will successfully stick a wing mirror to a vehicle. Adiseal will glue both the mirror housing to the vehicle as well as the mirror itself to the mirror housing. Making sure both surfaces that the adhesive will be applied to are free of any dust, grease or any other dirt is vital to get a good strong long lasting bond.

Temporary supports may be required to stop the item from sliding down until the wing mirror adhesive has cured.


Hi-Grab mirror adhesive

Although the Adiseal Hi-Grab product will also glue mirror to wall, it is recommended to use the standard Adiseal adhesive & sealant. The Hi-Grab product is a very thick product & requires a lot pressure to push the item closely to the surface the item is being stuck to.

As mirrors are weak & likely to break if the pressure applied is too high, the Adiseal adhesive & sealant product will be better suited to glue mirror to wall.

Glue for mirror

It is also possible to glue mirror using our Adiglue. Although Adiglue is less brittle than super glues, it is still not as flexible as Adiseal adhesive & sealant. Adiseal will provide a stronger & longer lasting bond than Adiglue when used as an mirror adhesive to stick a mirror.
