- Joining plastics
you can weld pretty much any plastic and abs is well suited to welding, it’s expensive kit so unless you are serious then glue it, if you use a polyofin primer then superglue can work. you can get proper plastic adhesives but they can be expensive, I generally weld as I reckon it’s more robust than glue but it depends on the type of joint you are doing as well. what’s the application?Posted 4 years ago
What is technoplastic?
My bad. Should have typed tecnopolymer. Tired!
A quick hit from Google:
TechnopolymerPosted 4 years ago
With increasing temperature and once the softening point is exceeded, this group of technopolymer melts, can be heat distorted and solidifies again after cooling. This process can be repeated any number of times. Unlike Duroplast, there is no chemical reaction during processing.
Technopolymer materials can be subdivided into amorphous and partially crystalline plastics. The disordered structure of amorphous materials allows the production of transparent components by injection molding right through to crystal-clear parts. Partially crystalline thermoplastics have a structure resulting in enhanced mechanical properties and temperatures of use.
The wide variety of different technopolymers and the options of modifications allow the production of “tailor-made” construction tools with respect to mechanical properties, chemical resistance, temperature resistance and different colors.
Anyone got any experience or advice? I’ve got a piece of tecnoplastic to join to a piece of ABS.
What are my options? Is plastic welding out because of the types of plastic? Is simple bonding a better option? If so any adhesive recommendations?
I have some small pieces to practice or experiment on if needs be.Posted 4 years agonickjbSubscriber
I doubt glue would work well in that application with the vibration and shear forces. Put a bolt through it?
