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.

UniBond Repair Epoxy Plastic is only suitable for bonding hard plastics, not suitable for polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), PTFE and flexible PVC.

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 Repair Epoxy Plastic, comes in an easy-to-use dual syringe applicator, so all you need to do is find a clean container with a non-absorbent surface 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 using the spatula provided.  
  4. Apply the epoxy glue to one surface and press both surfaces together firmly. If you’re repairing a bigger object, you may need to clamp the two parts together or use self-adhesive tape. 
  5. Leave it to cure. UniBond Repair Epoxy Plastic sets in just 5 minutes. The bonded items can be handled after 15 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.
