Smart Plastic Glue!
Looking for a rapid plastic glue?
There will be a time when you need to join ‘A to B’. Choosing the right glue is a task that requires a deep knowledge of the materials and an encyclopaedic knowledge of adhesive technology. Gluing plastic is no different. Glues and sealants for plastic form an intrinsic part of the range of industrial glues which we offer.
One area of significant importance, is gluing plastic in the assembly of signs and displays and within this field, solvent welding, or solvent bonding using solvent cement, is a commonly used technique.
This technique involves applying the glue to the plastic. The application method can include the dip method, were the plastic is dipped into a container of Scigrip 4SC, or the capillary method where, using a syringe, the 4SC is placed on the plastic joint
The 4SC swells and softens the plastic and by applying some pressure to the joint and with the evaporation of the solvent cement, a strong plastic bond is the result. It’s as easy as that!
For bonding plastics such as acrylic, polystyrene, polycarbonate and cellulose acetate butyrate, nothing comes better than Scigrip 4SC. Scigrip 4SC is a water thin solvent cement which is supplied from stock in handy 473 ml tins.
