  1. Reading some reviews here, I see that some people make the mistake of assuming that any glue or cement should suit all purposes. In fact, most glues are best suited for specific purposes; that is why there are so many different kinds.Rubber cement is unique in a few ways. It is not water based; that is evident as soon as you open the jar. It smells of an organic solvent. You don`t want to breathe in a lot of that. Best to use it in a ventilated area.In the name of the product is what it excels at: “no wrinkle“. The solvent in it causes the cement to reduce in volume as it dries, that is, it shrinks, so it makes a snug fit.It is especially well suited to gluing fairly flexible things – like paper or foil – to many other things, like paper, foil, plastic, wood, metal, etc. The solvent could be reactive to some things, making it unsuitable for some materials. Items glued down with rubber cement can often be peeled away even after the glue has dried; the glue can usually be rubbed off. On some porous substances (some kinds of paper) the glue could soak in and change the color.It may also be suited for fixing items together in a temporary fashion, in which case the glue can often be rubbed off. But when attached to rigid materials and especially when protected (e.g. covered with a laminate) it is reasonably permanent.Because it is not water soluble, it might be handy for joining things that need to stay stuck while immersed in water.It is used a lot by all kinds of crafts. I like to print templates or labels designed on the computer, then trim them with scissors or a paper cutter, then use rubber cement to attach it to metal, plastic, or wood. Then I take it down to the shop and use the printed guides to cut or drill. I can also overlay the result with clear laminate to have a permanent, protected and professional-looking panel, for example in electronics projects.Rubber cement is not especially well suited to joining hard things to other hard things – materials like plastic, wood, metal, and so on – except for temporary purposes, in which case it can be very handy if you need to separate them later and remove the glue. For example, to cut sheet aluminum, I may glue plywood to both sides with rubber cement for more rigidity, cut it, then remove the plywood.Last, chemical interactions with old-style (pre-digital) photographs could potentially fade the photographic image with time; this may apply to other kinds of printed material with time as well.

  2. This is my second bottle of this stuff. I haven`t opened it yet, but I`m assuming it will be as good as the bottle that`s just about finished. If it`s not, I`ll update this review.I don`t understand the negative reviews. Yes, it does smell, but no worse than any other rubber cement that I`ve used. It`s true that the applicator isn`t good for precision gluing, but that`s not what I bought this for. It`s basically for gluing paper, such as shipping labels. It`s perfect for that and it`s much cheaper than glue sticks. I also don`t understand the person complaining about it not being gorilla glue. It`s not gorilla glue and it`s not supposed to be. It`s just good basic inexpensive rubber cement, a glue that works well on paper and is easy to remove when misapplied.It works perfectly for what I need, gluing paper together.

  3. Every year I take all the kids pictures and dry mount them into a 16“ x 20“ collage and frame them. The kids like it and I think it is a fun way to have your family albums out there to see.Using rubber cement is easy once you understand how to use contact cement.If you remember to apply a thin layer to both the picture and where you want to cement it, let it dry and then stick together you will be fine.Also I am sure you can find a video on YouTube that details how to use rubber cement.Okay why not give you one… Watched this one… Not to bad.[…]

  4. mine arrived rock solid! yes amazon corrected the issue and gave me a refund, but it was still a sad day. I bought one locally though, and its amazing! holds up really well in my scrapbooks.. the only thing that i have noticed is that you cannot immediatley place it into your page protectors, it will ruin them behind where you glued it.. it will bubble almost like maybe it warms as it dries.. i dont know.. but now i jsut let my pages dry for a few hours before placing them in the scrapbook.. and if you put too much glue on.. BONUS when it dries after you have a ball you have your very own erasers!!!

  5. Still the best glue for paper. I am often surprised by the number of teachers I meet that don`t know how useful this product is in the classroom. Sure it is stinky, but that dissipates quickly. I like to engage students with participation when I create anchor charts by having preprinted pieces they can stick on the chart. A dab of rubber cement on the piece and the kids can stick their piece on, and reposition the piece if needed with no damage to the chart.I use it too, for hanging borders, paper to metal, in my classroom. So much better than the usual sticky tack, because what I put up STAYS up. I used it too, to position desk plates on student desks before taping down. Clean up was a breeze at the end of the year, because the glue just rolls up with no residue left behind. I DO NOT USE IT ON PAINTED SURFACES.
