PVC Adhesive

Hello again,

Sorry but I'm almost done with all of my annoying questions... I have purchased a nice new shiny rubrail to compliment my nice new two-part poly paint but I am not sure which adhesive to use to glue it on. I want something permanent (no chance of removing this thing anytime soon). The rubrail is made out of PVC and I seem to remember reading somewhere that polyurethane is not compatible with PVC as it will attack this type of plastic. I was thinking of using Sikaflex as one variety says it is good for mounting rubrails, but it is a polyurethane sealant??? What am I missing here?

Thanks!
Bob

IIRC, polyureathane-based adhesives/sealants won't attack PVC... Polysulfide-based adhesives are very agressive and attack most plastics across the board. Should be fine using a polyureathane based adhesive with the PVC IMHO.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks SD,

I must have been getting polyurethane and polysulfide mixed up.
