Aluminum is a durable and sustainable metal that is thin enough to be recycled into homemade crafts. Crafts like aluminum can airplanes, sharks, purses and lampshades; or commercial aluminum applications, where welding is not recommended, need a strong permanent glue. Being able to glue it to itself or other materials makes using aluminum easier.
Things You'll Need
- Grease-fighting dish detergent
- Metal glue
- Small binder clips or clamps
Wash the aluminum with a mixture of water and grease-fighting dish detergent to remove any dirt and accumulated oils. Rinse it with warm water and allow it to dry.
Apply a fast-drying metal glue to the pieces to be joined by following the glue manufacturer's application instructions.
Clip the joined pieces together with binder clips while the glue dries and forms a bond between the two surfaces.
