Adhesives, flammable

Rubber cement, pipe cement, some super glues and other flammable adhesives

Most model glues, rubber cements, and industrial-strength adhesives are flammable and not allowed in carry-on or checked baggage.

Some super glues and other household glues are not flammable and would be allowed in baggage. To see if they are flammable, check the product label or the manufacturer's material safety data sheet (MSDS). When checking the MSDS, a "flash point" at or below 140° F (60° C) indicates it is a flammable liquid and may not be carried in airline baggage.
