Glue for Polypropylene?


#1

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.

Regards
Christel

There is a website called thistothat.com where you can find
suggested products to glue this to that.

They have “plastic” in each of the drop down boxes, nothing so
specific as polypropylene, but, it’s worth a try.

Good luck

Loctite (Registered TM) makes a number of products for bonding
polypropylene.

One is “All Plastics”.

Hi Christel - have you tried talking to “Loctite” themselves.
Through their website, I lodged and enquiry, and had a very helpful
and knowledgeable technician on the phone to me within 30 minutes!
Couldn’t believe it!! Might be worth a try, here’s their url

Christel,

Have you tried ZAP? Chris Darway uses ZAP for his silver to foam
connections. You might have to put in a rivet to assist.

Back in my water rocket building days, the only adhesive that would
work for PET plastics (2 liter coke bottles) was a construction
adhesive called “PL PREMIUM.” This stuff sticks to just about
anything amd was able to withstand pressures of 100+ PSI. PET is
polyethylene terephthalate (basically polyester).

It’s available at hardware stores such as home depot.

Best regards!

Doubtless it’ll be evident that I’m crawling out from under my rock
to ask this question, but why would you want to glue polypropylene
foam to silver? Just curious…
