BEST GLUE/ADHESIVE FOR PLASTIC TO GLASS


Recommended Posts

hi chaps,  im looking for recommendations for a quick setting glue/adhesive for sticking  plastic bars back onto the glass windows, the kind that make the georgian bar look. ive tried superglue but it wasnt much good, someone recommended pinkgrip from screwfix.

Polyurethane or expoy, why on earth did you use superglue? Did you not think to call a glazing company for advice or research adhesives and bonding agents?

Get yourself a long roll of what ever diameter the plastic is you want to stick and Use 3M VHB 3mm tape with reflective heat differentials you may find most glues fail

The joys of cleaning Astragals, I just inform custy's now that at some time they will fall off and when they do I don't repair them. Absolute PITA and will only do them if I get them to agree to it.

Tell the customer we spend years and alot of money removing 5hite from glass and they must be stupid as to stick rubbish on it.

Quick setting glue will not work

If you ain't knocked them off, I wouldn't be chewing on trying to stick them on for the custy because if they ain't happy with the look from inside, they will be moaning about you and telling whoever calls around their house.

Shame, I remember a custy sacking me off about 12 years ago after having these type of windows fitted after the window firm told her wfp cleaners where too heavy handed and if the bars got knocked they wouldn't be covered for repairs on them.

On my round there are two houses where this is happening, on one the windows have been in for many years and it is only happening on two first floor windows. The other house the windows are only two or three years old and it is happening with two of them. A close inspection of one of the bars suggests that it might be cut fractionally long.
