This is bugging me! For weeks I have been trying to find out how to bond acrylic sheet plastic. (Not plexiglass, that is a softer plastic)
I know HOW, now... with "Acrylic Cement" Duh...
One problem, no-one knows where to get this! Nor do they know a subsitute bonding agent (Glue) that will work in it's place. Aquarium caulk will not work, I need a solid bond, not a flex bond.
Will contact cement work? Will Epoxy work, (Most say "Not on all plastics, but they don't mention which ones"). Will model glue work, (Solvent Cement)?
I am at a loss... Oh, one more thing. This must be water tolerant and safe to use within the proximity of vivarium life, once cured. I intend to go over welds with a bead of aquarium caulk as a final seal.
