I need to glue a glass objet to a silicone audio dust plug and wanted to know what adhesive would be best and safest to do that?

Image
I was recommended E6000 and would like to know if there is anything better, especially if the E6000 glue might dissolve the silicone?

Thanks!

E6000 is very good at what it does (I've used it on jewellery findings) but I'm not sure that anything will stick to silicone except silicone.

E6000 is silicone based so you may be in with a chance, but personally I'd either contact the manufacturers or look for the technical info on-line.

Thanks for the info about silicon, I didn't realise that.

These things are made in China by obscure manufacturers, tracking them down, and then even having an intelligible conversation with them, it is very difficult.

I'm basically looking for a soft inset dust plug for an audio port, if you know of an alternative then that would be great!

Just the normal 3.5 audio socket.

Having purchased a dust plug already, the exterior mounted piece snapped off because the insert was too rigid, so I found a soft silicone version instead. I just need to mount it onto that silicone plug now, the piece I am trying to mount is a glass object.

It didn't work, the E6000 glue just didn't take to the silicone.

I wondered if there was a primer.
Loctite do one Loctite 770 that says it will allow silicone rubber to be bonded.

Thanks guys, but all of these are expensive solutions. I since went back to the original plastic plug, that came with the item and just filed down the serrations so that they wouldn't catch on anything, it seems to be working well enough, but it's a shame I couldn't get the silicone plug to work.
