How to glue ninjaflex?

Recommended Posts

Well, the title says it all.

What glue can be used with the ninjaflex? Up until now, the standard superglue worked perfectly for PLA, but it seems like it can't do much with the ninjaflex.

Any ideas?

How can I bond NinjaFlex parts?

 

NinjaFlex has a very low surface energy, so it typically does not bond well with adhesives; however, 3M trim adhesive and Gorilla Glue provide moderate bonding. The best way to connect NinjaFlex parts is with a hot knife welder.

Good to know, not tried NinjaFlex yet, but looking forward to.

Could you report your experience?

In my experience you can gain most by sanding the rubber contact surface to be glued.

As with all (non-printed) rubber parts to glue, increasing the surface on micro-level by sanding will improve the bond.

Smooth surfaces are the hardest to glue, especially when the solvent in the glue does not work on the material itself.
