First i got the crafters goop (or whatever the purple one is) to attach my armor to my vest. I then switched to the plumbers to piece together my rifle kit (thanks to Spidey!). I love goop....i think i'll marry it...
I was being a smart A$$. I was playing on the Plumber's crack joke.
I think they are basically the same. Check out their website, I think they list what materials each product will work on. http://www.gcwoodworks.com/goop.htm I am sure that since plumbers use PVC products that the Plumber's Goop should work.
Plumbers Goop will work FINE. In fact, that's the only type of Goop I have ever used on my armor parts specifically because it's designed (so they say) to work on PVC and other plastics, as well as metal.
I didn't really want to make a new thread, so I just bumped this one:
Is GOOP the adhesive of choice for everyone, or are there any other adhesives that work just as good? I've heard about people using epoxy, superglue, and the like. Are some adhesives better for certain jobs than others?
I'm not really looking to go into cosmic adhesive theory here, I'm just curious about what adhesive I should use for my entire costume (ie. gauntlets, rifle, knee darts, helmet, etc).
Don't ever mix hot glue and Goop!! It eats through plastic!! If you apply Goop and then decide you want to reinforce it with hot glue before the Goop cures, you could end up with a hole in your styrene or at least very soft styrene.
So if I wanted to use an adhesive for construction of my jet pack which is going to be made mostly from sintra, would plumbers goop be the way to go. There are a lot of corners and edges in the design of the Jet Pack, and I want it to be sturdy. I'm a little weary of the fact that it has some give to it. Is there something better suited for this particular application?
