Adhesive for metal hinges on glass door

Postby peter gibbs » Tue Feb 23, 2010 3:30 pm

My shower window, toughened glass, is held by three hinges apparently stuck on with what looks to be a black mastic. The mastic is deteriorating but before I take it all apart and try to refix with something better, what is the magic adhesive of all the many on the shelf, that will do this? Does the stuff auto window repairers use work in this envornment, and can DIYers like me get hold of a small quantity?

Any insights gratefully received.

peter gibbs,
Suggest you search for a product called liquid metal, its a super adhesive in a mastic tube and costs about £6 per tube.
