Tired of messing up your DIY projects involving plastics by using the wrong adhesive? Then polypropylene glue is probably missing from your arsenal.
Polypropylene glue has multiple uses and is the only glue that works in certain applications. Polypropylene-based products are made of hard, usually white plastics that no other glue will stick to and some adhesives can even burn. Polypropylene materials can be found in your home, RV, boat, and car. Fix broken plastic parts in seconds using polypropylene glue.
Are you tired of throwing away an entire unit because a cheap little plastic part broke inside? Repair it instead with a unique polypropylene adhesive glue product.
Did you know that polypropylene glue is water and mildew resistant?
- Place the items you need to fix on a well-lit, ventilated, flat, clean, non-plastic surface.
- Be sure to read the instructions on the package for mixing procedures and safety precautions.
- A transparent drying product is recommended to mask repairs.
- Clean the parts you will be repairing with isopropyl alcohol to remove any residues and allow to completely dry.
- Sand the parts with fine grit sandpaper, if necessary, to remove any fine grit or flaking broken edges.
- Gloves and eye protection are recommended.
- Add a light coat of the primer (sometimes in a pen) that comes with your polypropylene glue on both sides of the repair, using a non-plastic applicator to ensure an even coating. Once dry, add the polypropylene adhesive on top of the primer.
- Or, if using epoxy, mix the two-part polypropylene epoxy hardening agent and adhesive together as detailed in the directions. Then apply a light coat of epoxy to both surfaces.
- Hold the pieces together for a minimum of five minutes or clamp together depending on size.
- Let the polypropylene glue or polypropylene epoxy cure for a minimum of twelve hours before reinstalling or using the part.
Not all polypropylene epoxies are alike. Check out LePage's Super Glue All Plastics—easy to use and fast drying. The two agents are delivered separately: one in a pen and the other in a bottle, making sure they stay fresh for future use.
