Re: Will epoxy bond to plastic?

Some glues "melt" what is being joined, which would be a chemical bond. The glue used to join PVC pipe is an example. These glues are typically very specific to the material being joined. 5200 would be an example of a physical bond...which can in many cases be good enough.

waxy plastic will not bond with epoxy. tried it on my kayak. gflex willnot either--tried it.
