Mirrors are an important part of our home decoration. We use mirrors in every room of our homes, from the living room to the bedroom, from the bathroom to the hallway.

What Should Be Considered Before Using Mirror Adhesive?

Select the area where you will glue the mirror. Since mirror adhesive is a very strong adhesive, it will be difficult to remove it again. If the wall is clean and smooth, it will allow the mirror to adhere much more firmly. Clean the back of the mirror and the area with a clean cloth.

How is Mirror Adhesive Applied?

Mark the area where the mirror will be hung with a pencil or masking tape. Attach the mirror adhesive to the silicone gun and cut it with a sharp tool so that the tip is at 45 degrees. Mirror adhesive should be applied vertically with a thickness of 3-5mm and a length of 10-30 cm depending on the length of the mirror. A distance of approximately 3-7 cm should be left between each strip of silicone. Applying the adhesive to the surface in circles, rectangles and similar shapes will prevent air circulation and the mirror is likely to deteriorate over time.
