Glue in the BottleBecause air can't get in to dry it; if you leave the top off for long enough it will start to dry inside.

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the glue bottle?

Another great and puzzling question. Why doesn't glue stick inside of the glue bottle.Glue on paper: As the glue connects with oxygen it becomes sticky and if left to dry in this oxygen it becomes hard and keeps multiple things together.Glue inside the bottle: Glue doesn't stick inside the bottle because the chemicals within the glue is triggered by oxygen (what we breathe) so when the glue bottle is opened it triggers the chemicals to make it sticky. That's why if a bottle if left out with no cap the glue becomes quite hard.Glue won't completely stick unless it's dried, and because inside the bottlee, the glue is still air locked in and not dried, it doesn't stick.

Why doesnt glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Glue is made up of a substance that sticks to things and a solvent that keeps it liquid until you want it to stick. When you put glue on a piece of paper, the solvent gradually evaporates until the glue becomes sticky. When the glue is in a bottle, there is a space inside the bottle above the liquid that is full of air. So why doesn't the glue dry out? Well there's a limit to the amount of solvent that can evaporate to fill the space in the bottle. Once the space is full of solvent gas, no more solvent evaporates from the glue and the glue stays runny


How does glue stick to things if it doesnt stick to the bottle?

When you squeeze the glue out of it's container, it makes contact with air, therefore evaporating the water molecules and drying it onto the surface of which you are gluing. So the reason why glue doesn't stick to the inside of the bottle is merely because the top is (hopefully) sealed, denying air access to the glue inside, so the water molecules remain intact. Hopefully you found this resourceful.

What causes glue to stick?

The glue is an adhesive. What causes glue to stick has to do with the water content inside the glue. When the glue "dries" the water level inside the glue has dropped due to drying and whats left is the adhesive content. This why it takes longer for glue to stick when you put a lot of it.

Why does glue not stick to the bottle?

Glue doesn't stick to the bottle because, in order for glue to become sticky it has to dry. There's no air circulation in a closed bottle so glue can't dry. If you're thinking, "But what if I leave the glue bottle open! Why doesn't it dry?" It's because there is a lot of glue in the bottle. Not just a thin layer. Just like when you're glueing something and you're not supposed to use that much glue because it won't dry.
