How the Gluing application works

There are many ways to use the gluing method to adhere Swarovski crystals to your jewelry, fashion or home décor creations — and it’s important to know which method works best. They all create a strong bond between materials and the Swarovski rhinestones, resulting in a long–lasting, durable adhesion that enhances your work with unforgettable sparkle.

How to apply Swarovski

High-performance gluing

Our Swarovski glues are strong, two-component epoxy resin gluing systems for both foiled and unfoiled Swarovski crystals. To make sure the bond is strong, it’s important to follow the application steps in the right order. The most common reasons for crystals becoming detached are inappropriate areas of application, poorly produced cavities, unsuitable gluing systems, and insufficient quantities of glue.

Types of Swarovski rhinestones that suit the gluing application

Cavity production

Many Swarovski crystals require cavities in order to be applied to materials to secure a stylish, long-lasting application. The cavity makes it easy to glue properly and ensures higher protection of the crystal against mechanical and chemical stress. Cavity production methods include drilling, milling, water jet cutting and casting.
