PostSubject: What glue for elastic please?   Tue May 31, 2011 9:38 pm

Hi, i just received some new shoulder-bells today.
I just finished the trimming & sanding, i've glued the popper at the top of each bell, using webbing.
Now....
At the bottom of each bell should be the black elastic, glued to each side.
So....
What glue should i use?

Im guessing i could use e6000, (but im thinking that would be sticky/rubbery, especially as it'll be rubbing the inside of
my undersuit)

I used E-6000. Once it's dry it's not sticky at all.

Works great!

Either E-6000 or stelmax is a top choice for this job Smile

Is this stelmax glue best in white? Did you just paint it over the elastic strip? Thanks.

Get the white stelmax and yes just paint it over the top.

Thanks Mark, will order some, if this is what you used it looks very similar to the original costume version. And my armour is PVC so hopefully it bonds well.

I'm not sure how it works on PVC so be sure to test on scrap first. We didn't have any with us last night otherwise we would have tried it on kenco's armour last night.

From the website: "Stelmax 1985 Adhesive is an easily applied PVC resin and solvent based mix which bonds readily to form maintenance free joints of exceptional strength when used to bond both plasticised and rigid PVC and ABS."

Looks like it's perfect for PVC.

Nice 1 rich I bet it will warp the plastic ever so slightly too just for that ultra accurate look - use sparingly Wink
