Gluten In Glue? E-6000 In Particular...
0

7 posts in this topic

It seems I read somewhere that glues can have gluten in them. I need to use E-6000 tonight for a project and I cannot find the information on ingredients anywhere. There aren't ingredients on the package or listed on the website or any other page I have googled. The package just says it contains perchlorethylene. Does anybody have experience with e-6000? I'm super sensitive and don't want to take any chances.

We love that glue. Not sure what's in it. Why not wear gloves or use something to spread it and touch with like a toothpick or Popsicle stick or your friends finger?

It is waterproof so I'm guessing it's all chemicals and nothing natural.

I was more worried about inhaling it, so I guess since its not a powder that shouldn't be an issue anyway? There are lots of chemical hazard warnings but no allergen warnings so I would think you are right.

I have called about some glues and they are gluten-free. There is very little or nothing in modern glue that can be identified as " natural".

And you should be. Not a gluten issue though. Make sure you keep windows open or use it outside as you don't want to breathe in the vapor. If I remember correctly the vapors may also be flammable so that ventilation is vital.

I think the non-toxic water soluable glues and pastes are the ones more likely to be wheat derived.

I've definitely heard that envelopes are not safe to lick, neither were stamps (but those are all stickers now)

Hi and welcome to the forum.

There are many myths that circulate on the internet about gluten on stamps, envelopes, etc. but they simply are not true.
