Will epoxy stick to plastic? Oh yes, it will! We’ll show you to choose and apply epoxy glue for plastic so you can get started on your plastic repairs in no time.

How does epoxy glue for plastic work?

You may have noticed that epoxy adhesives tend to come in two parts, the same is true for epoxy glue for plastic. When the two component parts – the resin and the hardener – are mixed together, they create a strong, waterproof bond that can be used to make long-lasting repairs on all kinds of plastic items. Epoxy to fix plastic can also be used to fill in gaps.

How to use 2-part epoxy glue for plastic

  1. Put on some gloves and safety goggles and clear the workspace. Put down a sheet to protect your surfaces. 
  2. Mix the two parts of the epoxy glue. UniBond’s Epoxy Repair Plastic, comes in an easy-to-use dual syringe applicator, so all you need to do is find a container to mix the epoxy glue in – preferably something you can throw away afterwards.
  3. Remove the lid from both syringes. Then depress the plunger to mix the two parts together before mixing for 60 seconds. 
  4. Apply the epoxy glue to both of the surfaces and press them together. If you’re repairing a bigger object, you may need to clamp the two parts together. 
  5. Leave it to dry. UniBond’s Epoxy Repair Plastic dries in just 5 minutes.

Epoxy glues get really hot when you mix them, so a plastic cup might melt if you use for mixing. We recommend using something stronger.
