Best glue on plastic

To bond plastic there are many different types of glues & adhesives available but which is the best glue on plastic. There are also many types of different plastics including PVC, ABS, polycarbonate, Plexiglas, perspex, acrylic, polyethylene & polystyrene to name a few. Certain glues & adhesives perform better on certain plastics than others.


Best adhesive for plastic

Is it possible to bond plastic using an adhesive? The answer is yes, if using the record breaking strongest Adiseal adhesive & sealant.

Why Adiseal is the best adhesive for plastic

Adiseal adhesive & sealant was the strongest adhesive in an independent adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman.

In the independent adhesive strength test by Ultimate Handyman, Adiseal was over 3 times stronger than the nearest competitor in the wood to metal bond strength test. In fact it was so strong that the screws holding the metal sheet down started to rip out forcing the test on Adiseal to be stopped.

Strongest Adhesive Test Results

  1. Adiseal : 3123 psi
  2. SupaBond : 1115 psi
  3. Tec 7 : 1016 psi
  4. HB42 : 942 psi
  5. Loctite PL Premium : 873 psi
  6. Gorilla Grab Adhesive : 862 psi
  7. Bond It PU18 : 582 psi
  8. Bond It Saves Nails : 411 psi


Some of the other reasons why Adiseal is the best when trying to to bond plastic:

  • Adiseal stays permanently flexible so it will absorb any vibration and allow any items to expand & contract without the adhesive becoming weak.
  • Is waterproof so it is also suitable for use outdoors or indoors.
  • Has very high gap fill properties.
  • Has high initial grab meaning temporary supports may not be required while the adhesive cures. Adiseal Hi-Grab has even higher grab than the standard product.
  • Is a suitable adhesive to stick most plastics.

Best Glue on Plastic

Adiglue is our best glue on plastic. It’s a high performance industrial strength glue that outperforms other glues & super glues. Adiglue provides a stronger & less brittle bond than super glues.

How is Adiglue better than super glue?

Adiglue outperforms other glues & is stronger than super glue because Adiglue is almost 100% pure cyanoacrylate. To make super glues cheaper to manufacture, most super glues are filled with solvents. This results in the super glue drying extremely quickly but leaving a weak brittle bond.

The other problem is when the solvents evaporate away, the super glue quickly dries up in the bottle. As long as the Adiglue bottle nozzle is kept clean, Adiglue will not dry up in the bottle for 18 months even if the bottle is kept open. After using Adiglue, use Adisolve sprayed on a tissue to wipe off any excess Adiglue from the bottle nozzle.

As Adiglue is not filled up with solvents, Adiglue cures quickly but slightly slower than other super glues. This results in a bond that is a lot stronger than super glues as well as being less brittle.

Super glue gel

Adiglue has a thicker gel glue formulation which results in higher gap fill than other glues. The gel glue allows it to be used where other super glues would fail. The thicker gel formulation also makes Adiglue easier to apply & less messy than other glues.

Clear glue

Adiglue is a completely clear glue and stays clear once it has cured. This is very useful when a clear glue is required like a glue for glass.

Glue strength demonstration

To demonstrate just how strong Adiglue is compared to other super glues, we have stuck together some MDF wood blocks together with Adiglue. We have then stuck some house bricks to the MDF & to other bricks with Adiglue. This is not be possible to do with other glues.



Adiglue will bond plastic to the following items

Adiglue will successfully bond plastic to the following items:

  • Wood (porous wood like MDF require sealing first with Adiglue Activator)
  • Glass
  • Stone (porous stone requires sealing first with Adiglue Activator)
  • Ceramic
  • Rubber
  • Metal
  • Synthetic Materials
  • Leather
  • Plastic
  • Concrete (once sealed with Adiglue Activator)
  • Brick
  • Masonry
  • Many other items

Porous materials will require sealing first with Adiglue Activator. This will stop the material soaking up the liquid glue.


How strong is Adiglue

Adiglue is one of the strongest glues available. The strength of Adiglue will depend on the materials it is being used to bond. On some items the strength of Adiglue is actually stronger than the material itself.

Adiglue strength example

In the example below we have sealed the edge of the MDF wood blocks using the Adiglue Activator then applied the Adiglue to stick the 2 MDF wood blocks together. Once the glue has dried, we tried to break the bond between the 2 block by stamping on it.

Best glue strength demonstration

As seen in the image, the MDF wood has broken before the Adiglue showing the glue is stronger than the MDF wood.


How to glue plastic

Glue for hard plastic

Adiglue is our best glue to stick hard plastic where the surface area is small. For items with a larger surface area, the Adiseal adhesive & sealant is the best product to stick hard plastic. Adiseal adhesive & sealant will provide a waterproof & flexible bond. It also has higher gap fill & initial grab.


Using Adiglue to glue hard plastic

To use Adiglue glue for hard plastic, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean to get the strongest bond. Adisolve is the ideal product to remove oil, grease, tar and other stubborn deposits.

Simply apply the glue to hard plastic and hold the items together until the glue starts to dry. Adiglue Activator can be used as an accelerator to quickly reduce the time it takes for the glue to cure.

To use Adiseal adhesive to bond hard plastic, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean to get the strongest bond. Adisolve is the ideal product to remove oil, grease, tar and other stubborn deposits.

Simply apply the adhesive to one item and firmly push to two items together. Adiseal has high grab but clamps may be required to hold the items in place until the adhesive has cured.


Glue for plastic to metal

To glue plastic to metal, both our Adiglue glue & Adiseal adhesive & sealant will provide a good strong bond. Adiglue is our best glue to stick plastic to metal where the surface area is small. For items with a larger surface area, the Adiseal adhesive & sealant is the best product to stick metal to plastic.

Using Adiglue to glue plastic to metal

To get the strongest bond when using Adiglue glue to glue plastic to metal, make sure both surfaces are thoroughly clean & free of rust. UltraLube is the ideal product to penetrate and help remove rust. Adisolve is the ideal product to remove oil, grease, tar and other stubborn deposits.

Simply apply the glue to either the plastic or metal and hold the items together until the glue starts to dry. Adiglue Activator can be used as an accelerator to speed up the drying time.
