Did you know that many glues and sealants come in a variety of colours to match your surfaces?
Many different types of plastic are used in commercial applications. Knowing the various types is helpful when choosing the best plastic glue for the job.
The easiest way to identify one of the seven plastic types is by its label, commonly a recycling symbol on the bottom of the item. For example, plastics marked with a 6 or “PS” are polystyrenes. These are used for simple items like packing material, disposable razors, and food containers. Before using any plastic glue, check to ensure it is compatible with your type of plastic.
Hard, high-density plastics, such as those used to make buckets, milk crates or containers, are made from polyethylene and polypropylene (HDPE). Ordinary white glues, wood glues or common adhesives won’t form permanent bonds with these plastics. The best glue for many hard plastic items is a gel, such as LePage 100% Glue Repair Gel. With is revolutionary FLEXTEC formula, it will create an extra-strong and flexible bond suitable for even extreme conditions like freezers.
Flexible plastics are commonly used in household items, such as shoes, toys and various bags. The best glue to use on flexible plastics is LePage 100% Glue. Its solvent-free formula is designed to dry clear and remain temperature resistant, all while staying strong and flexible!
This is also the best waterproof glue for plastic as it won’t shrink after application— a common problem that can create gaps and allow water to seep in. Even with Canada’s extreme temperatures, this product will not freeze in winter or deform over the hot summers.

Some repairs need an extra degree of strength. To fill gaps in common materials, such as aluminum, ceramic, glass, wood, MDF, fiberglass, and especially plastics, ensure you have a plastic glue that is shock resistant, non-shrinking, and elastic to create a long-lasting seal that will protect your home. Continue to trust LePage 100% Glue for all your gap-filling needs— both indoors and outdoors.
