Instructions for Safe Use
Follow these step-by-step directions when using E6000:
1. Please read all directions and test small area before use.
2. Surface should be clean, dry, and free from dirt. For best results, lightly roughen surface before use.
3. Apply directly to surfaces to be bonded or repaired. Allow 24 hours for curing—Maximum bond strength may not be reached for up to 72 hours.
4. For future easy cap removal, apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to the threads of the tube before replacing the cap. Clean uncured adhesive with acetone or citrus-based solvents.
Note: E6000 is not recommended for use on Styrofoam™, polystyrene, polyethylene or polypropylene plastics.
E-6000® hardens by solvent evaporation and forms an immediate bond that is difficult to reposition after both adhesive coated surfaces are placed in contact with each other and sufficient pressure is exerted to establish full contact.
SPECIAL TIPS: To extend life of product, be sure cap is secured back to original position. Use a toothpick as a disposable applicator for very small applications such as beading. Remove, recap and allow plastic nozzle to dry. Remove dried product from nozzle by pulling out through threaded end and reuse nozzle.
TEMPERATURE RECOMMENDATIONS/LIMITATIONS: Performs best when applied at 70 to 85 degrees F. When fully cured, product can withstand temperatures between –40 and 150 degrees F.
GAP FILLING ABILITY: Up to ¼-inch
CLEAN UP & REMOVAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Uncured E-6000® can be cleaned by using small amounts of solvents such as Acetone, Tolulene or Naphtha. Cured E-6000® requires scraping or cutting away product with sharp knife and use of mineral spirits (i.e. gasoline, lighter fluid, lacquer thinner) to soften product.
CAUTION ADVISORIES OR SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS: Use E-6000® in a well ventilated area. E-6000® may damage finished surfaces. Avoid prolonged contact until E-6000® is completely dry. Do not dry clean. Always test material samples prior to use on an original project where reversibility is important.
CAUTION: Contains perchloroethylene. Harmful if inhaled. May cause dizziness, headache or nausea. Can cause skin and eye irritation. WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer. Keep away from heat and flame. Contact with flame or hot surface may produce toxic gases. Use only with adequate ventilation. To avoid breathing vapors, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. FIRST AID: If you experience difficulty breathing, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical assistance immediately. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting; get medical attention. In case of eye contact, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

Can E6000 be used on Styrofoam™?
No. E6000 is also not recommended for use on any polystyrene, polyethylene or polypropylene plastics.
Will E6000 crack or break under stress?
No, E6000 dries to a rubber-like consistency that is flexible and moves with adhered material.
Is E6000 washer/dryer safe?
Yes. E6000 will hold on substrates applied to fabrics that are put through the washer and dryer. Dry cleaning, however, is not recommended.
Is E6000 safe for photographs?
Yes. E6000 is photograph-safe and acid-free after a full cure of 24 and 72 hours at 70 °F (21 °C).
How long does E6000 take to dry?
E6000 starts getting tacky in approximately 2 minutes and begins setting in approximately 10 minutes. A full cure takes between 24 and 72 hours.
Remember, temperature and humidity will affect dry time. To speed drying, apply heat using a handheld dryer set on low. Do not hold directly on E6000.
What is used to clean up uncured E6000?
Small amounts of acetone or citrus-based solvents for uncured E6000. Cured Amazing E6000 may be removed by cutting and scraping.
