Adhesive for base material

Post by samski24 »

Hey guys, I’ve slowly been making my way through my first build and I’ve run into a problem. I can’t seem to figure out what adhesive to use for getting my edges onto the base material. As I understand it, UHMW polyethylene, or the base material, doesn’t have a lot of glues that will actually bond to it. I’m very new to this all and am trying to learn as much as I can. Anything and everything you might have will help. So what do you guys use? What would you recommend?

Have you tried searching the forum or the internet in general? This would have been easy to find.

Yeah, I think I figured it out now. I ended emailing on3p too and they were very helpful. Turns out I’ve been trying all of the wrong types of super glue, but the answer was actually super simple and I feel dumb now. Thanks though!
