5 Best Glue for Fixing Broken Coffee Cup Handle
No. 5: Casein Milk Protein Natural Glue
Yes, you read that right!
You can use your regular cow milk or buffalo milk to fix the broken handle of your coffee cup in just few hours.
This is the safest and the most organic glue you will ever make at your home.
The process to fix the broken coffee cup handle with the milk is very straightforward and simple to follow.
Things You will Need:
3. Any Dairy Milk
4. Broken Coffee Cup with its Handle
Actual Fixing Procedure:
a. In this method, the first thing you will need to do is get the reliable electrical tape from the market. Do not use your regular masking tapes which will melt at a higher temperature in the boiling milk.
2. First, you will need to properly realign all the broken pieces of your ceramic coffee mug including the broken handle.
3. Now start applying the electrical tape on all the broken joints from the outside of your coffee cup.
4. I know it would be somewhat tedious to join the broken handle to the cup with just the electrical tape. But if you try a bit harder, you will know how to properly apply the tape on those broken joints.
5. Once you are able to apply all the electrical tapes, take a saucepan and pour some milk in it.
6. Now place your broken coffee mug with its attached handle inside the milk in the saucepan. Pour more milk to submerge the coffee cup inside the milk completely.
7. Now start heating up the milk, keep the flames on the low to medium settings and avoid using high temperature.
8. Once you see the milk is started boiling, then after one hour, take out the saucepan from the gas and allow the milk to become cool for next few hours.
9. I recommend you to keep the coffee cup inside the milk for next 24 hours at least to get the best results.
10. Once 24 hours are over, take out the coffee cup from the milk, clean it well under the tap water and peel all the tapes carefully.
11. Now, you will see that the natural milk protein named as casein has done its job perfectly. This casein protein acts as natural glue which settles down in the cracks of your mug and bonds the broken parts perfectly in 24 hours.
No. 4: Kintsugi Glue from Kintsugi DIY Repair Kit
Yes, this is also an excellent glue option you can use to fix the broken handle of your coffee mug at your home.
It is made from completely natural ingredients and that is why it is safe to use for every type of ceramic coffee mug crack.
There is a readymade Kintsugi DIY Repair Kit available online which you can use at your home to fix all types of ceramic materials.
The Kintsugi glue that comes with this kit acts as a perfect natural adhesive and fixing a broken handle of your coffee cup is pretty easy with this glue.
No. 3: Glue Made from Epoxy Resin Kit
Epoxy Resin Kit is probably one of the best and safest low viscosity coatings that can be used to join the broken handle with the coffee mug.
Although, it is mainly used for art coating on the tables, countertops, casting jewelry design, etc; you can still use it to fix all types of cracks and broken parts of your coffee cup.
The best thing is it is completely UV resistant, food safe, non-toxic and non-hazardous to use at your home.
The process of fixing the broken handle of your mug with Epoxy Resin kit is really easy and takes just few minutes of yours.
Things You will Need:
3. Your Broken Coffee Mug
4. Plastic plate
1. First thing you will need to do is to mix both the resin and its hardening agent that come in two different bottles.
Mix them properly in the plastic plate and make it a homogeneous mixture.
This mixture starts to cure and forms a stronger bond with any of the surfaces where you apply it.
2. It is a more water and heat resistant than the milk or any other glue in the market.
So, even in the bright sunlight, it will not melt away after its application. This means it will remain unaffected for a long period of time.
3. Now with the help of a spatula, start applying the mixture to both the sides of the broken handle of your mug. Also apply the mixture on the broken sides of the mug.
4. Now join the handle carefully on the broken edges properly and now let it dry for next few hours.
5. Once few hours are over, the mixture will make a strong bond between the broken handle and your cup.
6. And finally, you can clean the cup and start using it for regular coffee drinking.
