What Glue?

Hi Guys,

A couple of my grab handles have started to come away from my PVC tubes, what glue is recomended to stick them back on? I have found the professional PVC glue on ebay, but thats for sticking PVC to PVC, and the handles look more rubbery. Or is that the stuff i use?

That glue should do the trick. You want a two part glue for strength.

The biggest thing is to clean off the old glue without removing material.

My way of doing it is to clean with acetone and a scuffy pad. Wear chemical gloves. I found this removes the least amount of material. A quick wipe with MEK before putting the glue down prepares the PVC surface for the glue.
