Default acrylic/perspex glue

Hey all,
I have some very nice laser cut perspex to build my 44" pod and walkways, but I'm having trouble finding the right glue. Any ideas on products? I'm in Thailand and I know it's used here, but a name would help alot to track it down.

Thanks!

Lee, I've been using Weld-on 16 and a thinner version, Weld-on 1802. That stuff is great for wood plastic bonds too.

You can't go wrong with body filler, it sticks acrylic like wossit to a blanket.

EMA sell Plasticweld, you can also use Dichloromethane (industrial chloroform).

Bostick produce the liquid gel type adhesive called Tensol favoured by sign makers the world over. I would yellow page a sign maker local to you and ask them politely where they buy from, you may even be able to blag some.

If you are making leg pods I would be tempted to use both industrial chloroform and filler to bridge the joints from within.

Last port of call is any trade supply house selling plastics materials, yellow pages or internet search again.

I always use "Acrifix" for acryl.
