Polypropylene glue: The multitasking DIY super glue

Artificial Content Title -- to be hidden

Broken guitar stand? Material dropping out from your favorite chair? With polypropylene glue, you can bond difficult fabrics and small pieces back together. The applications are countless, so pick up a bottle and learn how to glue any surface.

Polypropylene glue: Why it’s the best option for the job

Your house is filled with a variety of objects and materials, all of which go through a lot of wear and tear. If you’re looking to fix multiple items at once, items that experience different levels of moisture or that are constructed using different materials, you’ll want to opt for a polypropylene glue. Items made from polypropylene include bottles (along with their hinge systems), storage boxes and pails and buckets.

Application tips for polypropylene adhesive

Applying polypropylene adhesive is quite simple, just follow these steps for optimal bonding:

  1. Every surface must be smooth, flat, and as clean as possible. To remove bumps, grit or other damage, you can use fine sandpaper to buff away an uneven surface.
  2. Use isopropyl alcohol to wipe away any remaining residue. 
  3. Prepare your polypropylene plastic glue or epoxy, including the application tip or tools. 
  4. Start gluing!
