GS Hypo Cement is a wonderful all purpose glue. It was invented in the 1930's for jewelry and watchmaking professionals. It is perfect for all sorts of surfaces and beading materials: glass, plastic, metal, wood - any more. The cement sets in 10 minutes. Dries after about one hour. May take up to 24 hours to cure completely. Time may vary based on humidity. There is a slight odor, but it fades quickly. The applicator tip is small and perfect for precision use. The glue will not bond to fingers and can be removed from other surfaces with nail polish remover.

Usage: To apply a fine line of cement, gently move the applicator along the surface. To avoid waste, press tube gently until cement starts flowing, then ease up. Flatten the tube as it is used; do not roll, twist or bend as this may cause the tube to crack. Do not press down on the applicator when applying cement, as pressure can cause the precision applicator to become dislodged.

Usage Suggestion: The cement tends to keep flowing out of the applicator once it starts, so if you do not have time to place the cap wire into the precision applicator between uses, keep an empty, small bottle (like a spice bottle) in your work area, along with a small piece of sponge soaked in rubbing alcohol. After using the cement, set the tube “neck up” in the spice bottle and place the wet sponge over the precision applicator point. This will stop the flow of cement and keep the applicator clean and ready for its next use. Replace cap wire when finished.

I always try to keep this glue on hand because of the tip. Easy to place where you need it.
