Larger flatbacks which are often called rhinestones are widely used for crystallizing dance costumes, footwear or any garment or surface where larger crystals are required. To apply the crystals a suitable adhesive must be used of which there are a number of choices below, e6000 is perfect for plastic, rubber, metal and glass, but has strong fumes. Gemtac is a non toxic adhesive which will give a good bond to most surfaces but is generally not as strong as e6000 which is industrial strength. The third adhesive we offer is GS-Hypo Cement which works well on hard non flexible surfaces such as metal, glass and plastic.
