What is the best adhesive for bonding Acrylic?

Acrylic (PMMA – polymethyl methacrylate) is a transparent, thermoplastic that is commonly known as Plexiglas®. Thermoplastics like Acrylic can be heated to their melting point, cooled and reheated without substantial degradation. This allows them to be easily injection moulded. PMMA has high strength, stiffness, optical clarity and resistance to UV and weathering. These properties make … Read moreWhat is the best adhesive for bonding Acrylic?
