glue for phenolic novolac

glue for phenolic novolac

I have an assembly that needs to be vibration tested, consisting of small plastic parts clipped into a stamped steel ring. I need to glue the parts together to prevent relative motion during the test. The plastic parts are made from Vyncolit X 689. "VYNCOLIT X689 is a Glass beads & short fiber molding compound based on Phenolic Novolac (TS) polymer."

Any suggestions on what I can use that will bond to both the plastic and steel, and also be strong enough to withstand vibration? I just need something for testing, not a long term production solution.

RE: glue for phenolic novolac

Just about any epoxy, though even cyanoacrylate (super glue) would likely work.

Do you think it might be important to quantify the magnitude of the vibration?

Maybe... I just didn't think I'd get a different recommendation if I said 20g's up to 400Hz (which this is), as opposed to something like 8g's to 2000Hz.
