gluing polypropylene to polypropylene
I am trying to build a DIY canister out of a Rubbermaid type of container, and needed to insert a 90deg L-elbow (black with barbed fitting) into the container. Drilled a tight fitting hole and just need to glue and seal in place. Well, having trouble finding a product that can hold it in place and seal at the same time. Because of the round shape of the elbow, it wants to rotate in the round hole.
Obviously I tried GE Silicone I, but it doesn't bond to the polypro. Neither does Super/Crazy glue, as the web site said, polypro has a "oily" texture that it doesn't bond to. There are special plastic adhesive that'll do the trick, but wonder whether it'll leach toxin. Even tried soldering iron to melt the plastic a little but no go either.
I can't possibly be the only one who had run into this. Do you have a product that you've tried and worked with?
