Hi to all those jewellers in Oz who work with alternative materials:
I am trying to find a glue that will stick polypropylene together.All the glues I have found so far do everything else except that.Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
This website's been around for a while - try it for gluing advice -http://www.thistothat.com

There is a website called thistothat.com where you can findsuggested products to glue this to that.
They have "plastic" in each of the drop down boxes, nothing sospecific as polypropylene, but, it's worth a try.
Good luckPam FarrenNewburyport MA

Hi Christel - have you tried talking to "Loctite" themselves.Through their website, I lodged and enquiry, and had a very helpfuland knowledgeable technician on the phone to me within 30 minutes!Couldn't believe it!! Might be worth a try, here's their url
Have you tried ZAP? Chris Darway uses ZAP for his silver to foamconnections. You might have to put in a rivet to assist.
Back in my water rocket building days, the only adhesive that wouldwork for PET plastics (2 liter coke bottles) was a constructionadhesive called "PL PREMIUM." This stuff sticks to just aboutanything amd was able to withstand pressures of 100+ PSI. PET ispolyethylene terephthalate (basically polyester).
It's available at hardware stores such as home depot.

Doubtless it'll be evident that I'm crawling out from under my rockto ask this question, but why would you want to glue polypropylenefoam to silver? Just curious...
