We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Broken glass is always a cause for drama. Most of the time, the damage is too catastrophic to do anything but sweep up the shards, toss them in a paper bag, and throw them away. But for those occasions when a break is relatively clean, a repair might be worth a shot. These glues will do the trick just fine, and can also be used for crafting, DIY projects, and on many other materials, as well. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best glue for glass on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

May 03, 2019:

From automotive repairs to restoring a broken family heirloom, there is something on this list for every need. We chose strong adhesives with a variety of properties (marine-grade, UV-resistant, flexible, quick-curing, industrial strength, etc) so that you'll be sure to find the solution best for your specific project. Many come with precision tips or in syringes for simple application and easy maneuvering.

Despite its brand recognition and long-standing reputation in the category, we decided to remove Super Glue 15171 due to repeated complaints that it wasn't effective on crystal, which is paramount. Instead, we added the high-end Bison Transparent, which is not only particularly good with crystal, but is also great for filling in cracks and working with myriad other types of glass, excluding aquariums and tinted varieties. It also sets and cures extremely fast.

Gorilla Glue Clear and Loctite Liquid Professional are especially versatile and can adhere myriad surfaces, so they're a solid option to have around the house for odd jobs. Permatex 80050 Clear RTV, TroySys Nano470 and E6800 Industrial Strength are ideal for the toughest jobs, while Beacon Premium Permanent is great for crafts and jewelry repairs.
