Plastic glueing is preferred if the surface needs to be completely flat to prevent dirt build-up; screws are less than ideal. In addition, glueing offers a solution for visible glue connections, for example, when making an acrylic aquarium or display cabinet. Larger plastic sheets are attached with Bostik adhesives and primers. For smaller glued joints, use Acrifix acrylic glue and PVC glue. In addition, our range includes additional products and accessories to support glueing, such as foam tape, plastic primers and a caulking gun.
