    Does anyone know which adhesives are best for gluing SWF and White Detail together and to other materials, namely plastic.

    Will superglue dissolve them? Will plastic cement melt them enough to glue to other plastics? Will epoxy resin work?

    Sorry I have so many questions and no answers, I just don't want my creations dissolving into a molten mess of plastic!

    Kindest Regards, Jack

    Funny you should ask that. I didn;t even think it might be an issue. but I just now used Super Glue (cyanoacrylate) on some WSF and it works fine. Albeit, I would warn against using any accelerators. The heat those generate would probably melt WSF.

    That's good news as that is what I normally use, also means I should be able to glue it to metal etc

    Thanks for letting me know!

    Hehe, they do get quite warm, but they are fine to use on SLS, which can take over 150 C before it starts putting up a fuss.

    My job would certainly be many times more frustrating if I couldn't use cyanoacrylate accelerants.
