View Full Version : vinyl to abs plastic glue

I'm making a custom deck adapter and I'm using abs plastic. I got it made but now it's time to put the vinyl on. I used some of the R/T spray glue and ended up just making a mess (it stuck to everything except the plastic) Now I'm doing some testing with the spare abs plastic sheet I bought. What is the best glue to use for vinyl to abs plastic?

You're screwed. Nothing sticks well to ABS. I would say that Gorilla glue would be your best bet, but I wouldn't put money on that either.

what about scuffing the plastic first to give it a surface to stick to?

I can do anything that'll help get it to stick. I sanded down the test pieces and nothing worked so far...
