Superglue release temperature
« on: 26 July, 2021, 05:48:53 pm »
Having just stuck Dr Beardy (Mrs)’s favourite tea cup back together with superglue1 I’ve now only just realised that heat can be used to get it to release and I’m concerned that it might fall apart in the dishwasher (it’s a double skinned item and it was only the outer that was broken. Does anyone have any experience with using superglue on porcelain?

Should be fine.
The mess on the shelf in the shed will take a while to clear up.

There's a type of super glue specifially made to release when heated and IIRC the release temperature for that is something like 250 C. Don't know about the standard type, but I assume it will be safe up to 100 C which is the most it would see on a mug.

I once went to the shedde, to find the aerosol can of framesaver goo had corroded through at the base, and dribbled it's waxy contents all over the shelf, and the bench below.
