Is this a fat plastic? (gluing question)
« on: 11/02/2010 15:31:11 »
Hi all!

I want to glue a plastic containing:
  Polyvinyl Chloride
  Di-ISO Nonyl Phthalate
  Epoxy Soy Bean Oil
  Metal Complex Stabilizer
  Lubricant
  Colorant

I have a glue for "fat plastic like polyeten, polypropen, PTFE, silicon et c" (it's the Loctite 454 with 770 primer).
Would it be suitable?

Best regards!

"fat plastic" looks like a bad translation to me but anyway, I'd try a glue that's designed for PVC.

Thank you for your answer!

Might very well be, and that could explain my lack of luck trying to "google" fatty, poily and so on plastics.

So, the "ingredients" still seem to make it a standard PVC, right?

I might add that this plastic material is transparent, millimeter thin, flexible and smooth. It's more lasting than packaging quality would need to be, and nothing feels surprising about it. That Loctite glue/primer I had at hand works very well on it. However, much less expensive PVC-glues might too?
