- What glue for polystyrene and card
Might sound like a random question but I seem to remember as a kid that some glues dissolved polystyrene! Need to glue some card to polystyrene to restore an old board game but can’t remember which glues eat polystyrene. Might have been Uhu. Or maybe it was airfix model cement.
Anyway need a strong safe glue!Posted 3 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Or maybe it was airfix model cement.
it would definitely be that was dissolving the polystyrene – airfix models are the polystyrene and the idea of that glue was it dissolved and re-set the plastic when gluing pieces together –
Uhu should be fine – anything non solvent-y should would ok.
Polyeurathene glue (gorilla glue) works really well with polystyrene but foams/ expands as it sets a little so can be messy (and sticks to skin like buggery)Posted 3 years ago
