CA glue doesn’t work particularly well with most plastics (styrene is an exception). It works, but it doesn’t bond to the plastic very well.

For better results using CA with plastics, we offer a special “PR” grade CA (PR stands for Plastics and Rubber) and a special plastics primer.  The medium-viscosity PR-grade CA works better than regular CA with plastic and rubber, and the special primer reacts with the plastic to create a better bond – it will work with most hard plastics.

This package includes a 1oz bottle of PR-grade CA and a 1oz bottle of Primer.

Note: these products are NOT Foam-Safe

The primer works as a cleaning solvent and CA activator – to use it, rub the gluing surface with a cotton swab to clean it, let it dry, then apply a second coat.   The primer is sold in a small glass bottle because it will react with plastic bottles (obviously).

We recommend this special CA and Primer for bonding 3D-printed parts, such as ABS and PLA.  It can also be used for plastic models.  Use it ONLY on the gluing surface, the primer can damage the finish on any surface.
