How to Bond Plastic?

What is the best plastic adhesive?  Becuase of the large number and variety of plastics, there isn’t one answer.  There is no magic plastic glue that is appropriate for every plastic application.  The factors within each application that affecting plastic adhesive choices include; the type of plastic, the surface condition of that plastic, the joint design, the bond area, if you are bonding to a dissimilar surface, the resistance required to stresses, chemicals, temperature etc…    Contact our technical team for an individualized recommendation.


For the vast majority of plastics cyanoacrylates (instant adhesives), UV curable adhesives, two component acrylics, epoxies, or poyurethanes offer excellent adhesion.

Here is a quick list of ideas for difficult-to-bond plastics

  • Polyolefins (like polypropylene and polyethylene) see the featured product TA4610 below.
  • Santoprene and Silicone rubber use Permabond Primer POP then bond with Permabond cyanoacrylate.
  • A popular marine plastic glue is methyl methacrylate adhesives (MMA), which has very good water resistance.  MMA are also popular within industrial applications.

Featured Product: Permabond TA4610 Plastic Bonder:

  • Bond untreated polyolefin
  • Ideal for bonding polypropylene and polyethylene
  • No need to flame, corona, or plasma treat surfaces before bonding = cost & process saving
  • Easy 1:1 mix ratio – can be manually applied or used with automatic dispensing equipment
  • Non-hazardous for transport = easier shipping and storage
  • Ideal for bonding a wide range of surfaces
  • Some strength on PTFE
  • Faster and slower curing products available to suit production needs.
