The question is “ can cyanoacrylate glue attach something to polypropylene type plastics”. Everything I read said it could, and In my experience, it can. But I believe each plastic can be different so , figured I would experiment instead of mowing the grass on this 90+ deg day.Oo ok thanks, so can cyanoacrylate glue actually sticl to polypropylene?
I'll look for the ingredients thanks for the explanationThe question is “ can cyanoacrylate glue attach something to polypropylene type plastics”. Everything I read said it could, and In my experience, it can. But I believe each plastic can be different so , figured I would experiment instead of mowing the grass on this 90+ deg day.
I searched through my firearms hovel and found a section of buttstock that I cut off of my Granddaughters Savage Axis when I shortened it to fit her. Took a while to find it and the fiber glass matt.
I scuffed up part of the inside of the surface with a drum sander in my Dremel, swabbed that portion with Loctite Plastics Bonder and applied some GlueMasters Thick Instant Glue (cyanoacrylate). Why didn’t I use Loctite glue (cyanoacrylate)? I couldn’t get the cap off of it. Besides , GlueMasters is pretty much my favorite super glue (cyanoacrylate). It comes in thick, medium, and thin for different applications. With it , I’ve repaired sneakers, hikers, trash can lids, eye glasses to name a few.
So then, within a minute, I laid a cut piece of fiber glass matt from NAPA ( 30+ years old), onto the inside of the buttstock where the cyanoacrylate settled evenly.
And using a piece of plastic knife from Dominos, gently put pressure on the fiber glass matt until it looked slightly transparent.
That was at 2 pm-ish, ( seems really secure so far), but I’m going to give it 24 hours, and then apply another layer, wait another 24 hrs. and see if an epoxy, ( Acra glass- JB Weld etc) will adhere to the fiber glass matt.

Applied, you can slightly see some transparent spots in the matt.

Tugged on it pretty good. Let it set a day and go from there.
