    Acrylic Glue

    Anyone know where in Ottawa (or online) I can find Weld-on glue for acrylic.
    I've got a nice little project going and need some glue..:b15:

    absolutely....
    you can get some at Canus plastics.., just off the beginning of Bank st.
    I mainly use weld-on 16 as well as the solvent.. I believe its called methyline chloride.. but i could be mistaken..
    you want to use the solvent as much as possible.. use the weldon only if you got gaps that need filling.

    hope this helps.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Yah I've bought it from canus plastics too and it's methylene chloride. It's cheap too.

    just to clarify......

    for solvent welding and a water tight joint you can use weldon 3 or 4 ( 4 gives you a little more working time and is my choice ) but you must make sure the edges are well prepared and fit good ( routered, no gaps ). weldon 16 is thickened and can be used to fill small imperfections in the edge preparation but it must be used sparingly as it shrinks when it dries.

    i built my camera box with weldon 16 and prepared my edges with a regular table saw blade, worked fine and luckily is water tight but i wouldn't have made a sump that way.


    good luck and please post some pics of your work :b15:

    Thanks for the info, no problem though I'm using it for my overflow. Doesn't need to be water tight, just glued..:b6:

    the weldon products are methylene chloride, 3 and 4 are a liquid to be used with the 'pin' method while 16 is a syrup and can be used like most other adhesives.
