Fastening plastic sheets by using plastic adhesives is the preferred choice when the surface needs to remain smooth to prevent a pile up of dirt. Screws can be less ideal for this purpose. Additionally, an adhesive bond can be a good solution for visible glue joints. For example, with a clear acrylic display or an acrylic aquarium. Larger plastic sheets can be fastened using Bostik adhesives and primers. For smaller glue joints you can use the specialised glues for acrylic, Acrifix, or PVC Uni-100. In our online shop you will also find extra accessories to help realise a strong adhesive bond, like foam tape, primers and a caulking gun. Plasticsheetsshop.co.uk offers everything to successfully complete your plastic adhesive project.
In Addition to the visible plastic fasteners, such as panel holders and screws, adhesives are also often a solid choice. The advantage of an adhesive bond, is that the top layers of the sheet remains intact and smooth, giving the final result a sleek and modern look. Another advantage is that smooth sheets are easy to keep clean, there’s nothing in the way that will attract dirt. Depending on your materials and the project, it might be necessary to pre-treat the adhesive surfaces with a primer to ensure a solid adhesive bond. Make sure to check if this is the case for your project.
