New Adhesive for use with PVC sheet (Kydex and Boltaron)

Just FYI, Their is a new adhesive for gluing PVC. This can be used on what is generally referred to as Kydex sheet (Which is a trade name like Kleenex) The other material trade names for this type sheet include Royalite and Boltaron. Suggest if you are using any of these trade name sheets and you are looking for an adhesive (Glue) that you contact Vanguard Paints & Finishes, Inc. in Marietta Ohio to discuss the Boltaron PVC/ABS adhesive. Works great!!!!!

Don't know, All I can tell you is that it might be worth looking at. Don't throw away your old equipment yet. The adhesive works only when bonding the PVC to PVC and not the other components that might not be PVC. As I say, might be worth taking a look at or at leat talking to Ron at Vanguard.

I was removing spam on this thread today when I noticed the topic was almost 20 years old. Wow!

Here's a link to the best thermoform adhesives on the market. I've you're using adhesives for KYDEX®, HOLSTEX®, Boltaron®, or ABS, these are the top-of-the-line!

Thanks Alex!
Well, now that I've bought a bunch of screws and other fasteners to work Kydex and similar thermo formed plastics.
