I need something that will form a strong bond with plastic...


One of the wheels on my slide out garbage can broke. I've tried glueing it together with everything. Anyone know something that will fix it?

what plastic is it?

Somewhere on the garbage can has to be a something telling you what plastic it is:
For example a triangle with PP or PE written in it - look and tell.

No sign no repair. period.

Actually you could probably make a polymer
from gamma-hydroxy-butryic acid.
I know this is possible because it is a
commen procedure for the SAAB and Volvo
plants in Finland and Sweden

Try Gorilla Glue. It will bond most anything especially if it is porous, like plastic that has been broken. Clean off all the glue possible, and clamp the desired items together. Just follow instructions on the bottle. The glue is expensive, and trash bins arn't that expensive, a cheap trash can can be had for, say, $8.44 at hardware stores that could fix your problem, and a new wheel to be mounted could get you off even cheaper. This isn't really mad science, but, oh well.



Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds.

I would think that making a polymer from GHB
would be more effective.You could smear the
newly made polymer onto the crack before it
hardens.

steal the wheel off your neighbors garbage can. just kiddin. man i cunt believe your trying to fix a plastic wheel. If I were your garbage man, and I saw that you had fixed your plastic wheel I would bust it off for fun. I have worked as a garbage man before.

Arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics; even if you win: you\'re still retarded.
