Plastic materials that are easy to bond with adhesives

Adhesive bonding is an outstanding method for joining plastic parts. Some plastics, such as ABS and acrylic, are easy to bond with adhesives and solvent cements. Others, such as HDPE and PP, are more difficult to bond.

To achieve a permanent joint, it’s important to select plastics and adhesives that are compatible with each other and suitable for the operating environment.
