How to use

For best results, ensure surfaces are dry, clean and free from dust and grease.

  1. Spread an even film of Hard Plastics Clear Glue onto both surfaces.
  2. Leave the coated surfaces to become tacky (about 1 minute) and then accurately align before pressing both surfaces together firmly until bonded. Note, the adhesive will stick immediately so you want to be accurate.
  3. Replace cap immediately after use to prevent the adhesive from drying out and becoming unusable.
  4. Maximum bond strength is achieved after approximately 12 hours

How to remove plastic glue

You can easily remove our hard plastics glue using nail polish remover or acetone before the glue is set. Remember to always test sensitive surfaces before applying solvent cleaners.


How do I prepare the surfaces to be glued?

Before applying glue, ensure that all surfaces are of sound nature and clean, dry and free from dust, grease or any other contamination.

What is the shelf life of the adhesive I have bought and where can I store it?

The shelf life of adhesives varies from product to product, but typically ranges between one and two years from the date of manufacture when unopened and stored correctly in dry conditions - usually between +5°C and +25°C. Once opened, the life of the product will be more limited – this is dictated by variables including the type of adhesive, how it is stored, and how much adhesive is left unused. For more information, refer to the product’s Technical Data Sheet.
