Hi, Has anyone ever tried to glue the UHMW plastic to plywood and if so what glue worked best. Also on a similar note what would be the best glue for fabricating vacuum bags from vinyl.

Any thoughts?

Hi Philip.

With regards to the uhmwpe I would suspect that you will not be able to glue this up, as it reacts like ptfe and dose not provide a surface that allows the glue to key onto it. If the uhmwpe is thick enough I would screw it on.

In regards to the glue for the bags can't provide any advice.

All the best

Neil

There must be a glue that works - they make that self-adhesive slick tape :?

But no, I have no idea what kind of glue would work :)

Then, ever so slowly, an idea emerged. Hey, would that self-adhesive slick tape work?

Thanks Neil, Chris and Pete for your thoughts. I looked at the links and will probably try a couple of test pieces. My first one will a solvent free poly adhesive and if that fails a latex contact adhesive if I can find one. If it is not a success I will bolt on.

Thanks again

Philip
