Thread: plastic cement

    plastic cement

    alright heres the deal im working on a custom vehicle from various G.I. Joe parts. This is my first custom and I had to glue two halves of a gun together. (To form one huge mega death blaster!! Hahahahah!!!)

    So anyway I got some testors plastic cement not in a jar or tube but in a squeeze theing with a long nozzle. So I put some on both halves and stuck them together. It says to hkeep pressure on them for 10-15 seconds and to let dry for 2 hours but they still fall apart very easily after 5 mins. Is this normal for plastic cement and will the bond be strong after two hours or do I need a diffrent adhesive????

    Thanks for the help.

    Looks like you may need a stronger adhesive. Old toys are made up of different plastic compunds than the newer ones. That's why it's a hit and miss thing when customizing from them.

    I don't know if this will help. I use super glue. Locktite is what I use. You should be able to find it in most stores. It works well on the lightsabers that I make and will stick to most anything.
