Gluing foamed pvc (Forex)- what glue works best?

Postby ink the troll » Thu Jan 17, 2013 2:05 am

I know there's some glue that more or less cold welds pieces of foamed pvc together, but I don't want to buy that glue (wouldn't see that much use and thus is too expensive).

Super glue didn't work too well (not even gorilla glue, and that stuff is quite effective).

Wood glue doesn't work too well and only if the pieces of foamed pvc will later be covered in various layers of wall or wood filler or the construction doesn't need to support much weight.

So far two part epoxy glue has been the most effective. Any other ideas or tricks?

Use the same stuff that is recommended for PVC piping from a hardware store - it's the same material.

Odd. Will give superglue another try then, this time I'll wash the foamed pvc first (it was covered with a self- adhesive sheet for protection, maybe there's some sort of residue).

Sinewgrab, I'll see if I can find that kind of glue in smaller containers/ tubes as I don't really want a 500g can.

Never had an issue with superglue and foamex, the thinner the better....

superglue is OK if the joining scetions are perfectly square-cut.

you couldtry some type of impact adhesive? look on Bostik website for their range to suit foamex.

The thinner superglue needs a very tight join for it to work, the thicker sorts are more forgiving of gaps. Gorilla superglue is good stuff, I use it myself but they also do a funny soft of glue whose name escapes me (Gorilla glue obviously but I cannot recall the type of glue it is) that needs water to work properly but gives a very strong bond when it sets up properly and will stick almost anything (especially skin) but is very messy.

I've used superglue as well, but it wouldn't hurt to pin the joints in some way.

Have you ever tried online forex trading? It is an exclusive way to your financial freedom. I started to study it only a few months ago when I occasionally came across the tradersunion site. It is very interesting, but I still find it risky to start playing for real money. I am training on a free demo account. It is good that most brokers allow you unlimited access to it.
