Glue works in a variety of ways, either by mechanically sticking two surfaces together or chemically sticking two surfaces together, but the outcome is the same. A metal pot can be glue together or glued to a wooden or metal handle with epoxy glue or cyanoacrylate glue, also called super glue. These glues will allow the smooth surface of the metal to adhere to whatever you stick to it.
Things You'll Need
- Epoxy or cyanoacrylate glue
Clean the metal pot and the other object you wish to glue to the pot. The glue will stick more easily if they are both clean.
Apply the glue to the metal pot. Dab on enough glue so that the surface is wet.
Press the object you want to glue to the metal pot onto the pot. Hold the object down firmly for several minutes for the adhesion and cohesion to take place.
Let go of the metal pot once the object is stuck to it. Allow the glue to dry.
Tips & Warnings
- Be sure to use glue that is insoluble with water so that you can wash the metal pot.
