Which adhesive???

Post by r1ch » Fri Mar 11, 2016 12:37 pm

Hi guys, I'm in the uk and I need to know which adhesive is best to join my bottles together. I know PL Premium is most commonly used but I would need to import it and that is expensive. Any help is appreciated!

I live in PH and have the same problem. I use 24hr epoxy (Araldite, I assume) in replacement for the PL. Although it holds a lower pressure, it's a good alternative when using pressures below 120psi.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't realise it would be so difficult to choose the correct adhesive haha

Bison has some good glues. I've seen someone recommend this one:

Has anyone tried Gorilla Grab Adhesive?
It looks very similar to PL Premium, and more importantly you can get it in the UK!
