Waterproof adhesive for bonding acrylic to other plastics

Waterproof adhesive for bonding acrylic to other plastics


I have an application requiring the bonding of acrylic to vinyl, abs and acrylic, that will be permanently situated underwater.  

The water may contain salt at some point in the future if this makes a difference.

The fittings are not perfectly snug, so cant use contact adhesives, so the ideal solution would also fill any gaps when fully cured.

Thanks for any help you can provide


RE: Waterproof adhesive for bonding acrylic to other plastics

Depending on how strong of a bond you are looking for, there are glues that are a mix of polyisocyanates (strong)along with a primer and some butyl benzyl phtalate that is extremely strong and expands a bit as its drying.
