Full Answer

E6000 gets tacky in about two minutes and starts to set in about 10 minutes. The drying time may depend on humidity and temperature. A handheld dryer may be used to speed up drying. Dried E6000 has a consistency similar to rubber. It is flexible and moves with anything it adheres to. It is washer- and dryer-safe, but dry-cleaning solvents may disintegrate the cured glue. Clear E6000 should not be used on polyethylene, polystyrene or polypropylene plastics.
