Gluing component in shower to shower tray

Postby eddyr1k » Wed Feb 03, 2021 6:35 pm

Hi fellas, first time poster here. I am wanting to glue the component in the attached pic to my shower tray as the screw has sheared off in the hole, both the component and tray are plastic, not sure which type of plastics. First off, is there a product out there which could do the job? Would have to be strong as the cubicle glass door travels along the rubber channel on the component so it would be subject to cyclic fatigue. Iv looked around but can’t find the best product, loctite? Gorilla glue? Epoxy resin? Solvent cement? Any help most appreciated. Thanks

Simply Build It

Hi eddyr1k
Suggest you try mitrebond but ensure the mating surfaces are clean and roughened. You can build up a bead around the fitting for extra strength.

Hi eddyr1k
Yes that will be fine - mitrebond is going to be your best option. Clean all mating surfaces with solvent and sand to provide a key.
