Re: glueing teflon

Teflon can be glued but it takes special primers and surface prep to make it stick. most likely it is a UHMW or HDPE plastic which also can be glued with the right adhesive. how thick is the strip? this material is also availible with a self stick adhesive in some thicknesses. if it is 35 years old then it may be nylon
