What UK adhesives will bond strong cotton fabric to polypropylene? Making a sandwichboard for a protest with Correx boards and some cheap dwill fabric. Tried using a staple gun but no dice.

>> No.2413334

did you try roughing up the surface?
120 grit sand paper, scuff it up
something like superglue or epoxy, maybe? I know the least about which compound to you, you'll defo want to sand it for grip tho

>> No.2413338

sew it on

You should contact the technical committee for the protest group who created picrel, I'm sure they will have a solution

the fact that this real and 'people' actually think that way is proof that the world population is in desperate need of a mass culling

Sounds like a fun idea.
Op staple gun works in wood because it splits the fibres which clamp the staple, plastic doesn't do that but if you had an anvil behind to form the legs properly like a paper stapler it should have held.

There used to be a crazy trash picker/hoarder guy in my neighborhood who gathered all the old TV antennas that were dumped when cable took over, and planted them in his mom's yard with the intention of harvesting and selling the new ones that would sprout from the parent aerials he lovingly tended.
That effort was actually more useful than the CHAZ/CHOP "garden" since he wasntva belligerent psychopath and could be approached safely and talked into harvesting one early if you needed some cheap scrap aluminum stock for a project.
He was manifestly unwell mentally due to both congenital factors and untreated acute mental illness but still possessed more common sense regarding his antenna garden than the CHAZ/CHOP protesters, and was a better neighbor whose presence and activity was not just tolerated but appreciated for decades too.


>> No.2413587

he was a based guy in spite of his profound mental challenges (he would occasionally advocate mass cullings, for example)

Sign fag here. That particular material comes corona treated so you can screen- and flatbed digital print on it.
Since OP likely stole a roadside sign to procure it its very likely that material.
That said you are correct about polypropylene and adhesion, that shit is so slick its material memory will literally untie knots you make in rope made from it.
It quite literally "fights the power" of adhesives, which is likely why so many woke idiots itt are trying so hard to suggest products that are as useless as the CHAZ/CHOP garden in this application.

Thank you, FAGWATCH® volunteer, for your tireless service.

>> No.2413641

honestly, it feels really good to be recognized for once. I put in so many hours of my own time, never getting paid, sacrificing time and energy that I could be spending with my family or on improving myself or just doing something enjoyable...
But a simple "thank you" from someone who appreciates my work makes it all worth it.

Have a great day, anon <3

OP here, these replies seem conflicting, which should I believe?

Also jesus fuckin christ is this website brainpoisoned these days, can you talk about anything other than muh black people for a second? I made a thread about bonding plastic, I'm not even from the USA for fuck's sake

To be fair, the sign had triggering language. Right in the feelie-feels.

You told people you were going to a protest, and then asked what glue to use on the one and only material that is notoriously resistant to glues. Anyway I don’t have an answer for you, but can tell you that most PP glues only stick to PP, and most other glues don’t stick to PP. That’s also why people think you’re trolling

Which UK protest?

>> No.2415433

Ah fuck man
I got these boards custom-printed to turn into a sandwichboard because they make their prints out of Correx to be durable outdoors & they didn't mention anything when I said I'd be sticking them together, I had no idea this was a problem

I did a quick google for PP-based adhesives, would Loctite All Plastics work? Been to DIY stores and I'm surprised by the lack of consistency on the packaging of glues, some say what they don't work on, others don't bother

Does it say anything about it working on polypropylene?

>> No.2415440

Hot glue gun it on.

Well you are the one going to a protest. Like a faggot. In june. Which is gay month.

Its june and abortion was just banned in the USA. Three guesses where you stand on the spectrum.

They are usually affixed using this kind of rivet screw anchor or whatever theyre called

You want to BOND the PP not glue it. Very different materials needed.
cyanoacrylate is awful for PP. Will peel straight off

this is like the "absorption" "adsorption" delineation. The two words are absolutely interchangeable in daily parlance.

Sign-chad here. Use "rubber cement" aka "contact adhesive" (who knows what you call it over there, if you even have it). It will not hold up over time, but it should work long enough. People stick PSA vinyl to that shit all the time and that usually uses acrylic or rubber based adhesives.

3M makes a variety of adhesives that work with LSE plastics. Surface prep is no more complicated than wiping with isopropyl.

Easiest solution is to make a slot in the sign, thread your strap through that, and connect the strap to itself (sewing, likely). For making the holes, consider melting instead of cutting.

>> No.2416901

As this guy said, this is the general sort of approach you'll want
