stick (glue) together (PLA to PLA)

Recommended Posts

Posted · stick (glue) together (PLA to PLA)

Hi everyone,

I built an underwater robot. I used UM2 to create the shape. The shape of my robot like as the shape of a fish body with dimensions (65cmx25cmx15cm) and also has similar surface properties. The thickness of the outer skin of the robot approx. 3mm.

The robot consists of several components (parts) that I was created using a 3D printer (Due to UM2 has small Dimensions).

I used PLA filament to produce the parts of robot.

After finishing of the printing, I got more of eight parts. (Each part has approximately the following dimensions 13cm, 18cm, 3mm).

Of course, now comes the important aspect "stick together" (PLA to PLA)!

I need your advice to chose the best stick of my state.

I prefer some of the points to be the stick like:

 

1- To be no super glue, so that the parts of the robot to remain in their position to each other over a longer period still be moved.

 

2-The viscosity of the stick should be similar to honey and not the water.

 

What stick would you recommend in this case for my robot?

 

 

best regards

Ammar

pvc glue works well and is water resistant. You can also make vases and cups watertight with it.
