  • Glue on Plexi

    I am working a pattern this evening and decided it would look so much better cut out of plexiglass/lexan, but I need to use glue on it.

    Does anyone know of a glue that is pliable for a couple minutes, stays transparent and would not show on plexiglass/lexan?

    I know someone on here will come up with an answer for me so I will start re cutting the pattern.

    You will want to read about it on there site. I have seen it occasionally at Lowes and Home Depot.

      Toni,

      Another great site is www.thistothat.com
      It's basically an adhesive database where you plug in what you want to glue to what--and it will make suggestions. I plugged in Plastic to Plastic and got a couple suggestions--household Goop and 5 minute epoxy...

      I would also suggest clear silicone...

        I like to use E6000 clear It can be found in any craft store and (Home Depot but not sure?) It stays flexible and clear and can be painted. Gluing a plastic to wood can cause problems because wood moves and plastic doesn't. Here is an example of this glue use.

          Those are excellent works you did there JT. When are you going to post those to the gallery so some of us can take a closer gander at your process?

                Sorry for not getting back to you Grizz, but I decided to go with the household goop since I had it in the shop. How did it turn out? Hell, it never got that far. Having a workout just cutting the plexi. Obviously not my usual brand....

                So, when I am done the cut, and on to the glue - I'll let you know how the Goop worked. Giggle.
