    Apr 4, 2009, 8:33 PM - Sintra? #1

    Because I have never used Sintra before I was wondering if you can glue up pieces before forming or should it be done after forming?

    Thanks

    what type of glue are you using? I'd recommend glueing after forming, but it all depends on the type of glue...

    Well I have 3 types of glue at my disposal:
    Styrene cement
    Super Glue
    Barge cement

    Any good for my application?

    im guessing that if you use a glue that melts the pieces together, like ABS cement does, it should be fine. Whilst other types of glue will "let go" when heated up.

    Super glue is the best adhesive for sintra.
    The really runny kind, not the gel.

    The only thing i found that may be a problem is depending on how you are gonna heat up your sintra. if you boil in water should work. but i have found that if you are gonna try to use a heat gun it may warp around the glue. Chemical / heat reaction? just my 2 cents. But I did some glue work also. keep us updated on your build
