Is there such a thing as glue that will stick to nylon and similar materials? I just tried Barge's, and it didn't.
I don't know what any of that stuff is.
Nylon isn't really in the same class of materials as Delrin, HDPE, PP, UHMW etc. Nylon is fairly easy to bond to and isn't nearly as finicky as the low surface energy polymers. You shouldn't have too much trouble with it and shouldn't need to flame treat it. Just make sure to clean it with some isopropyl alcohol and be sure there isn't any debris/grease on the surface.You can sort of bond nylon, Delrin, HDPE, etc. etc, with a number of adhesives, but none will be very strong or permanent especially if mechanically stressed, in a wet environment, or if one material expands more than the other with heat. At best, it will be a temporary bond. The best chance to have any bond using cyanoacrylate (super glue) and polyurethane is to prep the nylon with flame. That creates kind of an open pore surface and improves the bond. If you are using anything but a thin strip, the best way is to screw with wood or machine screws. Also, all those plastics drill and tap quite nicely.
Are you sure its nylon? I believe those organizer boxes are typically polypropylene (if its the kind I'm thinking of) which is next to impossible to bond to.Believe it or not, I'm trying to lightly tack a 3D printed divider into a translucent small parts organizer tray. The Loctite Vinyl that Raymond suggested really stuck to the divider, but it didn't stick so well to the tray. That could be my fault. I've glued it again and clamped it this time. It may not have had sufficient contact with the tray bottom. In any case, these glue discussions are always helpful (when they include brand names.) Glue is often a great mystery to me. We used to use CA in manufacturing, and it worked great, but I've never had it work for anything for me.
I really don't know what the material is, but I was told that 3D printing is often done with nylon. What I do know is that it's hard for glue to stick to this stuff. I just checked my latest test. The glue stuck to the 3D divider but not to the tray. If it's polypropylene, what glue should I use?Are you sure its nylon? I believe those organizer boxes are typically polypropylene (if its the kind I'm thinking of) which is next to impossible to bond to.
Got a few pictures of what you're trying to do? Who made the translucent small parts organizer tray? Who made the 3D printed divider?Believe it or not, I'm trying to lightly tack a 3D printed divider into a translucent small parts organizer tray. T
