No- it doesn’t hold even when not under tension. I found it useless for gluing plastic to plastic.
Due to the technical nature of the inquiry we would need to know more information about the intended application. You are welcome to call our help line at 800-624-7767 for further assistance.
Thank you for the question. The Loctite Plastics Bonding System will bond but the two pieces must have a perfect fit with no gaps otherwise the glue will not work. The success will depend upon the amount of bonding surface available and the amount of stress the bonded material maybe subject after full cure depending on the location of the break
Thank you for the question. The intend use is possible however the polyethylene material must be a completely smooth surface with no gaps otherwise the glue will not work. The overall success will depend upon the amount of stress the bonded material maybe subject to. In this situation there are no guarantees this product will be suitable for the intended project since no details have been provided.
I doubt it. Looking at the bond, this version of Loctite is specific for plastic to plastic bonding.
Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, the components of the Loctite Plastics Bonding System cannot be purchased separately. Also, the product in not available in larger containers. It is highly unusual the activator would be dried out unless it was expired. Checking the activator on a piece of white or yellow paper will definitely provide a visual of solvent presence by wetting the paper. Keep in mind the activator evaporates very quickly on bonding surfaces. If there is no evidence of a wet spot on paper, then it is possible the product was expired product. Lot code information can be found on the activator tube. However, as with all items sold through retailers, a product should be returned to the place of purchase for exchange or refund. These stores do receive credit from Loctite for returning a defective product but more important the store location needs to know.
Thank you for the question. The Loctite® Plastics Bonding System is designed for small projects. It will bond to most plastics (but not all) having enough bonding surface available when used properly. However, it is not designed for repairs and/or applications needing high flexibility or for gap filling applications; or for repairs that may be under stress, subject to vibration or a vertical load. Also, the glue will not bond to materials that are too cold. Surfaces must be above 50°F (10°C) at least during application and cure time. Keep in mind it is not possible to predict what kind of results you may get for this intended use.
Thank you for the question but there is not enough details about the nature of the fix to provide an adequate answer Is this something that will be under stress? How much bonding surface do you have? is what you are bonding making a precise fit with no gaps? If the end result does not have enough bonding surface or does not fit together with a precise fit and there are gaps or it is under stress then for sure this product will not work. In this situation all you can do is try
Thank you for the question. It is possible depending upon the composition on the band. For example, if made of silicone it will not work. Keeping in mind this is a repair the success will depending upon whether the two pieces fit precisely together including the amount of available bonding surface. In addition if the band is subject to undue stress this product may not work.
