Mirror Adhesive

Best mirror adhesive

There are many adhesive products 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 reflective backing material. This is the reason why when trying to stick mirror to a wall or any other surface, mirror’s require special mirror adhesives. These special adhesives for mirrors are safe & they do not damage the sensitive 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 shown to be the strongest adhesive, way stronger than anything other adhesive tested. 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. For even higher initial grab, use the Hi-Grab product.

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 and weaken the bond.


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. This can happen due to temperature and moisture 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

How to stick mirror to a surface

  1. Clean 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 the bond 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.

  2. Apply Adiseal mirror adhesive

    Once the surfaces are clean, with Adiseal simply apply the adhesive to one surface and push the mirror firmly but carefully to the surface. Try to cover as much area as possible to get the strongest bond.

  3. Temporary supports

    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. Adiseal can take 24 to 48 hours to cure.

  4. Remove excess

    Wipe off any excess uncured Adiseal with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.

Adiseal can take 24 to 48 hours to fully cure, but will grab the mirror before it’s cured. Remove any excess uncured Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Stick mirror to tiles

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 uncured Adiseal by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.


Bond mirror to metal

To glue a mirror to metal, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean before applying the adhesive. Making sure both surfaces a clean will provide the strongest bond. Some metals might have surface oils applied which will need removing first.

Once the surfaces are clean simply apply Adiseal to one surface & push the mirror carefully onto the metal. If the metal 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 product by wiping it away with a thick cloth. Adisolve will also help remove any uncured Adiseal.

Adiseal can also glue mirrors inside cars as well. It can stick mirrors to many different materials inside a car, van, truck or any other vehicle.


Wing mirror adhesive

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.


Sticking mirrors to stone

Adiseal is successfully stick mirror to different types of stone. Before applying the adhesive, making sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean will provide the strongest bond. Brushing the stone with a fine brush like a painting brush is recommended to remove any fine dust. With Adiseal adhesive for mirrors, sealing of porous stone should not be required. Temporary supports might be required to hold the mirror in place if it starts to slide down.


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. Adiseal Hi-Grab will provide a higher initial grab on the mirror especially on vertical surfaces.

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. Adiglue will cure a lot quicker than the Adiseal product.


Mirror backing

A mirror is manufactured by applying a reflective coating to a suitable material. This material is usually glass. Silver or aluminum is commonly used in most general mirrors but other coating can also be applied. Applying heated aluminum in a vacuum is the most often used method of attaching the reflective coating to the glass. This reflective coating is applied very thin and can be damaged when exposed to chemicals like solvents. As these metal reflective materials can also oxidize, they are sometimes coated with other materials like paint to stop this. Any mirror adhesive being used to stick the mirror will need to provide good adhesion no matter what the surface material is. Some adhesives for mirrors might be able to provide good adhesion on some surfaces but not others. Adiseal adhesive & sealant can provide the strongest adhesion on a variety of different surface materials.
