1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Certainly is, and I can advise on all things U-pol and Isopon - old haunt of mine.

    When gluing and flexible parts are involved, use an adhesive that is also flexible. For instance, contact glue or silicone avoid adhesives that become hard/solid, like epoxy.

    Have a look for goop adhesive (Amazon).
    It's an excellent adhesive with flexible properties.
    I have used it for many applications and it's never let me down.
    I'm also a big fan of epoxy resins.
    Not such a fan of PU types like Gorilla glue. It has its use but it's hard to control the expansion and time consuming to deal with the expansion.

    Plexus MA300 is what we used for building and repairing stuff on our Glass Fibre cruisers. Great stuff; flexible & will bond most metals & plastics. Good enough for the Caledonian Canal, good enough for an old Airgun.

    Agree with Ace23, a CA glue with activator is your best bet. There are many other brands and it’s very useful to have around. Gorilla Glue is a great glue but because it’s an expanding glue it’s not the best type for this situation. Hope this helps.

    I ended up using a thin spear of araldite, and clamped it together. Seems to have worked.

    Araldite will eventually harden and crack, better off using something like Sikaflex 221 will stick like s...... to the preverbal blanket...used to use it for sticking body kits to cars.

    Araldite, It will work but will go brittle over time. Just keep an eye on it.

    Try tiger seal. It’s a PU sealer used for holding on body mouldings and trim. Similar to windscreen sealant, it will take a good day to cure though.
