I do construction and the number of adhesives is mind boggling. Really, the only glue that seems to bond anything is plumbers goop.
I guess I somewhat understand the concept of “solvent welding” in that certain glues melt some of the parts their bonding. But often, say with general construction adhesive, it’ll just not stick to plastics at all and you can peel it off after it dries.
Is there an easy way to understand all these things without pouring over the fine print of all the sundry tubes of stuff?
