Looking for something to bond plastic to metal. Needs to be REALLY strong though. Any ideas folks?

I did try the 2part epoxy the other day and it really didn't seem to hold.:mad:

We had talked about JB, but the bumper filler..? Think that would adhere to metal?hmmm

only thing on the jb weld, is ive heared that its bullet proof, but doesnt seem to like most plastics........ shoe goo has always seemed to work....

I think that whatever glue you decide to go with, if you are able to scratch some grooves or maybe drill a few tiny holes in the material being glued, the glue will probably hang on better.

duck tape will do the job just kidding :laugh: JB works well with most stuff i have used the permatex plastic weld and that works great for stuff around are plant nursery and heyok has a good idea about makeing the surface ruff so you will get a better bond if it's thick plastic and metal drill the hole at a angle that way it wont pull apart as easy or maybe a really good two sided tape might work also id try a auto store and see what they have kicking around

Yes. Especially if you drill and goo it right through the holes and layer it on the other side too. It wouldn't have to be too thick either...
I'd try it for $8, for sure. Go Canadian Tire!

Well it turns out I jumped the gun a bit on looking for this.
Turns out the build I am doing doesn't require gluing plastic to metal like I thought.
Hard to explain, but wait for the build to start and it will become much more clear.;)
