Creates an unbreakable bond with materials
Sets up in less in 2 minutes and is fully cured in 6 hours
When dry, glue is virtually invisible - Great for glass on glass mosaics
This UV glue is cured with an activator instead of an expensive UV light. This makes it ideal for gluing glass to glass, even opaques, which a UV light glue can't cure. It is great for glass to glass fusing, mosaics, three-dimensional stained glass and jewelry, among other applications. In addition, it's also well suited for gluing metal to glass (like jewelry findings) with fast and easy cleanup. You can even use Triolyse with stone such as granite or marble. Package includes 14ml of activator and 10ml of adhesive.
Using Triolyse is Easy!
Below are some helpful hints for Triolyse from Delphi guest instructor Cheryl Frech:
1. Humidity makes a difference. If you're working in a humid environment, bake your glass and bails in an oven at about 200 - 250 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes before beginning.
2. Use a diamond engraver point on a rotary tool or glass engraver to rough the surface up where you will be applying glue. Do this to your glass, and to any portion of the finding that will be covered by the glass.
3. Clean both surfaces well with rubbing alcohol. 91% Isopropyl Alcohol will provide the best results.
4. Apply a small amount of the "activator" to both surfaces, then wait at least 15 seconds, but no more than 4 hours to proceed.
5. Apply enough adhesive to evenly coat the bail.
6. Position the bail on the glass and press pieces firmly together for about 15-30 seconds to create a bond.
7. Within 2 minutes, clean away excess adhesive and activator with a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol.
8. The adhesive fully cures after six hours (or as quickly as 30 minutes if you heat the parts to 150F).
Jewelry artists, watch a quick online video to see how easy it is to secure your bails in place with Triolyse.
The projects in these pictures were all done in a one-day class at the Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas. Students were asked to bring a fused element that we would convert into a sculpture, or create a base that will enhance their work. We can see from these examples that the students quickly understood the 3 dimensional possibilities of this versatile glue. The fact that it is non-toxic, sets up in less in 2 minutes and is fully cured in 6 hours encourages spontaneity and creativity. Project images provided courtesy of Boris Chasin.
National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream

Did you know that April is National Earth month? That’s right, a month-long event scheduled for April 1 through April 30 in Washington, DC, featuring interactive, eco-friendly experiences to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage sustainability. Earth Month 2013 represents a significant expansion of Earth Day festivities normally celebrated April 22. Join millions of people around the world and unite with the sole purpose of celebrating National Earth Month by looking for your community’s local efforts and meaningful programs. In the meantime, why not start the celebration at home with crafting projects that recycle, re-purpose and reuse.
