"Plast Aid"?



#9

Anyone else heard of "Plast Aid" (http://www.plast-aid.com/)?

(And, do you happen to know what it actually *is*?)

The demo at the local Spa Outlet counter (a quarter stuck to a piece of PVC pipe) is pretty dramatic. Might be helpful for calculator case repairs.

It looks to the same stuff as Rawn Plas-T-Pair. That's been around for many years and yes it is great for fixing broken calculator cases -- including broken screw posts.

The labels on the bottles say:

powder: CAS#'s: 26572-20-3; 140-88-5; 94-36-0

liquid: CAS#'s: 80-62-6; 121-69-7

I know that these are chemical codes, but don't know the translation to more common names. However, I'm sure that it's all nasty stuff that will cause cancer in California.

The description on the back of my package says, in part:

"It chemically fuses to many plastics such as ABS, acrylic, and PVC, and those which becomes [sic] sticky after testing with a drop of Plast-aid liquid."

and also:

"Contains Methyl Methacrylate . . . "

The liquid is in a glass bottle with a hard plastic cap, but I still get a whiff of something awful each time I open the package.

Yep. Sure seems like the same stuff.

I've used it for some repairs that I thought would never hold up, but they usually do!

My first application: a custom-made headsail luff foil feeder for my sailboat. (The stainless fitting never quite lines up correctly with the vinyl foil. The jib's luff tape comes out the groove and chews up the vinyl.) But with this stuff ... I'll give a full report.

Hello,
Go to http://www.cas-no.org/ an paste every 3 number group.
ex : 26572-20-3 is POLY(ETHYL METHACRYLATE-CO-METHYL
80-62-6 is Methyl methacrylate
and so on.

Have you, or anyone else, tried this on the hinge of the grey classic boxes?

This stuff doens't flex at all, it cures to a very hard plastic.
