A great glue for resin kits


Fred Swanson
 

In the link there is another link to a two part adhesive for plastics. It appears to be made for tough to bond derin and other plastics. Has anybody tried that one? If so how well does it work?

I have not used this glue for resin; but I know it works great for repairing
broken handrails made of engineering plastic. It's worth purchasing even if
that's your only use of it.

After struggling through many different adhesives, some of which left a
brittle joint, some a white film, some which didn't work at all; I have
found Loctite for plastics. Following the directions in the use of the
activator and glue will lead to great results, an invisible, super strong
joint. I'm done with expensive exotic glues as this can be found at Home
Depot for three bucks. If anyone here knows a hobby shop owner tell them to
stock this product.

Wasn't the original reason for buying Cyanapoxy that it would glue Delrin
and similar plastics? I don't think resin to resin was the reason for
touting it in the first place.

I use Tech-Bond. http://shop.tech-bond.net/main.sc
Half the price of Cyanapoxy and supposed to be just as good.
I use it almost exclusively for resin to resin or plastic joints and I'm
happy with it. It comes in a bottle with a screw on cap and a 'nail' in the
tip of the cap that seals the nozzle and keeps it clear. I've been using my
2 oz. bottle for more than 2 years and it's still free flowing and works
fine. It comes with an extra nozzle and tip. When the nozzle starts getting
gunky, I switch to the spare and soak the dirty one in nail polish remover
to make it as good as new.

for much less money. My initial impression tonight was favorable. The one
variable I couldn’t check tonight was that of durability of the bond. That
is going to have be done over a period of time.

I spent a bit of time downstairs this evening, for the first time in
sometime to be honest. Anyhow, as I indicted earlier, I went to Home Depot
and purchased the Loctite Plastic Bonding System and found it to be a very
easy to use product. I worked on a caboose and a mechanical reefer, both by
WrightTRAK, and it worked well on both of these cars. I used the activator
first, as directed to and then the glue. Worked great resulting in nice
tight bonds. How these hold up over time is a whole different subject. For
the price, 3.98 at the local store, you almost can't go wrong. Even is this
didn’t work on resin freight cars I am sure that there would be a 1,000,001
uses around the house. I also, as stated, picked up Gorilla Super Glue. I
did NOT try that tonight and as such cant report on it. Overall I was happy
with the Loctite product and am anxious to see how it holds up over time.

If you reread the message, you'll see that Denis is talking about
Gorilla SUPER GLUE, not the other Gorilla glue ;^)

Watch out for the Gorilla Glue. It expands with just the
atmospheric
moisture. Please DON'T use it for model building!!!! Works good to hold

chair legs together on kitchen sets.

I use Gorilla Glue around the house, a lot...They have a Gorilla Super Glue now...There is a difference. I do intend on trying the GSG on a resin freight car model to see how it work with regard to bonding ability.

Regular Loctite super glue is 01-30063. Yes, for what I had to pay for cyanopoxy I was less than satisfied with it (despite the claim it's used for the space shuttle's ceramic tiles). The Gorilla glue is supposed to be a more flexible super glue formula, but again I was underwhelmed. Shelf life is less and I can't find the flexible part to be any different. So still I use the Loctite super glue the most.

Yep, that's the stuff

Denis,
Watch out for the Gorilla Glue. It expands with just the atmospheric
moisture. Please DON'T use it for model building!!!! Works good to hold
chair legs together on kitchen sets.

I just returned from a trip to Home Depot and picked up this Loctite
product. I also picked up Gorilla Super Glue as well as I have talked to a
few guys that have started using this as well. In a bit I will head to the
basement and give both products a shot. I think I might have a FEW resin
freight car kits down there to try them on..<G>

Speaking of "cyanopoxy" I never had any success with it, despite following
the directions carefully with what was supposed to be a fresh set.

This is indeed less expensive than the cyanopoxy glues and works well.
The
only shortcoming is the small tube runs out or dries up well before the
activator. But I have found that just using the regular Loctite in the
plastic bottle (which lasts much longer) works well with the activator
also.

I have not used this glue for resin; but I know it works great for repairing
broken handrails made of engineering plastic. It's worth purchasing even if
that's your only use of it.

After struggling through many different adhesives, some of which left a
brittle joint, some a white film, some which didn't work at all; I have
found Loctite for plastics. Following the directions in the use of the
activator and glue will lead to great results, an invisible, super strong
joint. I'm done with expensive exotic glues as this can be found at Home
Depot for three bucks. If anyone here knows a hobby shop owner tell them to
stock this product.
