I have used Elmer's Rubber Cement for over 40 years for professional and personal use. My two main uses are (1) for attaching paper to other surfaces -- especially as a dry-mount -- to give a clean professional look, and (2) for attaching a business card to letters and such -- using a couple of small "dabs" (put some glue in a small "squirt-tip" bottle to make it really easy!). The card will not get lost and not noticed (because it fell somewhere in the envelope), and it can easily be removed by the customer. The little bit of glue on the back of it can easily be rubbed off by the customer.

I would like to see easy-to-use rubber cement thinner available in relatively small "consumer" amounts so that the once-in-a-while user will not end up with a bottle having a lot of dried-up cement.

I would also like to have the stuff available in small capped-tip plastic squirt bottles so small dabs can be easily applied without your fingers getting rubber cement on them.

I love rubber cement! It is clean and economical. As with any product, it must be used for appropriate applications.

I have a lot of projects to make for school and I thought using the rubber cement would be a lot more effective than just regular glue, but found it to be just as much of a heartache as regular white glue. There are very few things that this rubber cement will hold up on. I found that if I need to attach small items like beads, then this glue will work, but if I have to bond things like poster board or foam, this just does not work all that well. It can also start to make a mess, especially if begins to build up on the brush. I would use hot glue and put up with the extra mess if it means that my projects can get finished.

Elmer's Rubber Cement

By Elmer's Rubber Cement by Elmers

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

Elmer's Rubber Cement is the best glue that I can get to fasten just about everything in the paper department. I use it on making collages, posters, even fastening photos into my photo albums but carefully as it doesn't do well on plastic. As I use the computer a lot and do paste ups on things that have been printed on the computer I find that other glue and pastes tend to
pull the color from printed matter and make messy spots along the edges of things that I am trying to glue neatly. With the Elmer's I can put a thin coat on both surfaces and lay the piece in place and never get a messy dark splotch along the edge. One of the best features of rubber cement is the availability of Rubber Cement Thinner which will clean up any of the
cement that might spill where it isn't wanted. Love my Elmer's Rubber Cement.

THE BEST RUBBER (Cement) IN THE HOUSE

By Peri Kiros

from Melbourne, FLORIDA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

I use Elmer's for all my projects. Being a Realtor here in Brevard County, in Melbourne FL., I like to give my new homeowners a bottle of wine and other goodies. I design and print out a label picturing their new home with the date of their closing (and their names, of course) and carefully glue the label on the bottle. Elmer's makes it so easy-within minutes and a few rubber bands it is in place and it "Sticks". My customers love the thought of this personalized gift and when I visit them years later-the bottle is a keepsake for them and its been rarely opened. I've tried other glues, but Elmer's works the best and it is fast clean-up too!

Sometimes you need a classic

By SFValleyMom

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

Yes, there's a glue for nearly everything these days, but sometimes you just need plain old glue. That's when it's time for Elmer's. Classic gluey-ness, same old brush applicator, familiar smell. Plus, you know how it holds AND how long it stores. Anyone who has fought permanently affixed tops to so-called superglues will appreciate the simplicity of rubber cement.
