Benefits of Adiseal
How to stick mirror to a surface
How to stick mirror with an adhesive
- Prepare the Surface
Ensure that the surface where you will be attaching the mirror is clean, dry, and free of any dust, grease, or debris. Use a suitable and mirror safe cleaner to remove any residues.
- Apply the Adhesive
Apply the adhesive to the back of the mirror ensuring even coverage. Be cautious not to apply too much adhesive, as excess adhesive can squeeze out and be visible around the edges of the mirror.
- Position the Mirror
Carefully place the mirror onto the prepared surface, aligning it with the desired position. Press firmly, applying even pressure across the entire surface of the mirror to ensure good contact between the adhesive and the surface.
- Support the Mirror
If necessary, use temporary supports, such as adhesive tape or brackets, to hold the mirror in place while the adhesive cures.
- Remove Excess Adhesive
Wipe away any excess adhesive that may have squeezed out around the edges of the mirror. Be careful not to disturb the position of the mirror while doing this.
- Allow Proper Curing Time
Avoid disturbing or putting stress on the mirror during the recommended curing time. This allows the adhesive to fully set and ensures a strong 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.
Stick mirror to wall
Glue mirror to wall using the following steps for a strong bond:
- Clean surfaces: Thoroughly clean both mirror and wall surfaces to remove dirt and contaminants that can affect the bond.
- Apply adhesive: Use Adiseal mirror adhesive mastic and apply it to one surface, covering a sufficient area for a strong bond.
- Secure mirror: Position the mirror against the wall, pressing firmly for proper adhesion. Consider using temporary supports if needed.
- Allow curing time: Adiseal typically takes 24-48 hours to fully cure. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the specific curing time.
- Remove excess adhesive: Wipe away any uncured adhesive with a cloth. Use Adisolve if necessary, but avoid using it on the mirror backing.
- Consider moisture: If bonding non-porous materials, lightly spray water on one surface before applying the adhesive to aid in the curing process.
Stick mirror to wardrobe door
To stick a mirror to a wardrobe door, follow these steps for a strong and lasting bond:
- Clean surfaces: Ensure both mirror and wardrobe door surfaces are clean. Use Adisolve to remove dirt and debris, and wipe surfaces thoroughly.
- Apply Adiseal adhesive: Apply Adiseal adhesive to one surface, covering enough area for a strong bond.
- Position the mirror: Press the mirror onto the wardrobe door surface, aligning it carefully. Use temporary supports if needed for vertical placement.
- Allow curing time: Adiseal typically cures in 24-48 hours. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for optimal bond strength. Avoid disturbing the mirror during curing.
- Remove excess uncured adhesive: Wipe away any excess uncured Adiseal using a cloth. Use Adisolve if necessary, but avoid contact with the mirror.
Stick mirror to tiles
To adhere a mirror to tiles using Adiseal mirror adhesive, follow these steps:
- Clean surfaces: Ensure both mirror and tile surfaces are clean from dirt and debris before applying the adhesive mirror mastic.
- Apply adhesive in vertical strips: Use Adiseal mirror adhesive and apply it in thin vertical strips on one surface. This allows for even distribution and water to run down instead of building up.
- Press mirror onto tiles: Align the mirror and firmly press it onto the tiled surface with the adhesive strips.
- Allow curing time: Adiseal takes 24-48 hours to fully cure. Use temporary supports to prevent the mirror from sliding while the adhesive cures.
- Remove excess uncured adhesive: Wipe away any excess uncured Adiseal with a cloth for a clean finish. Use Adisolve to remove remnants if needed.
- Consider moisture for non-porous surfaces: Spray a small amount of water on one surface if the tiles and mirror are non-porous. This provides moisture for proper curing.
Glue mirror to wood
To glue a mirror to wood, follow these steps for a secure bond:
- Clean surfaces: Ensure both mirror and wood surfaces are clean before applying the adhesive.
- Match surfaces: If the wood surface is not flat, adjust it to closely match the mirror surface using cutting, filing, or sanding.
- Apply Adiseal adhesive: Apply Adiseal adhesive to one surface and carefully press the mirror onto the wood.
- Use temporary supports: For vertical surfaces, use temporary supports to prevent the mirror from sliding until the adhesive fully cures.
- Allow curing time: Adiseal can take up to 48 hours to fully cure. Consider using temporary supports during this time to prevent the mirror from sliding.
- Remove excess uncured adhesive: Wipe away any excess uncured Adiseal with a cloth. Use Adisolve to effectively eliminate any remaining residue.
Bond mirror to metal
To glue a mirror to metal, follow these steps for a strong bond:
- Clean surfaces: Thoroughly clean both mirror and metal surfaces to ensure a strong bond. Remove any surface oils from the metal.
- Apply Adiseal adhesive: Apply Adiseal to one surface and carefully press the mirror onto the metal, aligning it properly.
- Use temporary supports (if needed): For vertical metal surfaces, consider using temporary supports until the adhesive fully cures.
- Remove excess adhesive: Wipe away any excess adhesive using a cloth. Use Adisolve to remove uncured adhesive or oil residue from the metal.
- Consider moisture for non-porous surfaces: Spray a small amount of water on one surface before applying the adhesive if both mirror and metal are non-porous. This helps with the curing process since Adiseal requires moisture.
- Allow extra curing time: Give the adhesive additional time to fully cure, considering the non-porous nature of the materials.
Adiseal is also suitable for automotive applications, making it a reliable choice for gluing mirrors inside vehicles.
Wing mirror adhesive
Adiseal is ideal for securely attaching a vehicle’s wing mirror. Thoroughly clean the surfaces before applying the adhesive for a strong bond. Temporary supports may be needed to prevent sliding during curing, ensuring a strong and durable attachment.
Sticking mirrors to stone
Adiseal is highly effective for securely adhering mirrors to stone or concrete surfaces. Thoroughly clean both surfaces before applying the adhesive. Additional sealing is typically unnecessary for porous stone or concrete. For vertical applications, use temporary supports to prevent any sliding during curing, ensuring a secure and stable bond.
Mirror tiles adhesive
Adiseal is an excellent adhesive choice for securing mirror tiles. When using Adiseal for this purpose, ensure the surface is clean, dry, and free from dust or grease. Apply the adhesive to the back of the mirror tile evenly, then firmly press the tile onto the desired surface, ensuring proper alignment. Adiseal’s quick grab and high bond strength provide immediate and secure attachment, while its moisture resistance ensures long-lasting bonding of the mirror tiles.
Glue for mirror
For mirror applications, we recommend using Adiseal, as it offers a stronger and more durable bond than Adiglue. While Adiglue has the advantage of quicker curing, it may not provide the same level of long-term strength and flexibility as Adiseal, which ensures the mirror remains securely attached, even when exposed to movement or environmental changes.
Adiseal is also a mirror sealant due to its neutral cure properties. Adiseal mirror sealant will provide a strong fix on mirrors without attacking the sensitive mirror backing.
