While this stuff is tough enough to use for bullet proof glass it has a property that can easily destroy it. When exposed to some solvents it crazes and if under stress it deconstructs spectacularly.

Experiment- Bend a compact disk to put the bend under stress. Add a drop of acetone to the bend. Wear safety glasses. It shatters into lots of pieces that fly about.

The solvent in a "wrong" glue will have the same effect.
