    Eyeglass Frame Repair

    Post  Ladyelaine on Tue Dec 19, 2017 3:11 pm

    What is the best glue to repair broken plastic eyeglass frames? Has anyone used Lazer Bond which claims not to harden in the tube prior to being used and bonds in only a couple of seconds?

    No idea what's best to use because I've never had to repair eyeglasses (yet). I'd probably try to use the Krazy glue I have in the drawer. But I also have a backup pair and am known to take risks that don't always work. (They usually do, but some don't.)

    A lot depends on what part is broken. If it's the bridge part I'd be more likely to try glue than if it was the earpiece swivel. If it's the earpiece itself and not at the swivel, I'd definitely use glue. If it's the swivel, I'd take it to somebody competent rather than risk it myself. If it's the part around the lens, I'd have to think about it awhile before I decided whether or not to try it.

    Which type of Gorilla Glue would work? I see the directions for clear, gel, and epoxy Gorilla Glue say not to use it on polystyrene or polyethylene types of plastics or acrylics.

    What I use just says original gorilla glue. I have never read the instructions LOL
    From what I read that laser glue might be better.
