Hi Mazyar! Gorilla Epoxy will bond glass and PVC sheet - but not PVC pipe. We hope this information helps!

For the life of me I can not figure why one would want to glue PVC to Mirror Glass. I have no idea why it wouldn't work...mix it light on the hardner and allow it to cure longer.

Yes, it will bond to glass and PVC, but I would recommend roughing up the PVC with sand paper, first, to give it better adhesion.

It likely will, but there is a high chance that the epoxy will etch the mirrors reflective coating. Best bet is to get a mirror mastic from a local glass shop.

I think it might work, even though PVC is tricky to glue onto glass, which is all the front of a mirror is,. I would suggest getting a scrap piece of PVC and trying to glue it to a piece of glass, first. Make sure both the PVC and the glass are clean, though.

The backing on the mirror might react or prevent attachment. If it is a cheap mirror you might try but I would be afraid of poor bonding. I would use mirror hangers to attach to PVC.

Hello leenaud!

It is very common for granite to be attached to the cabinet frame with epoxy.

And, epoxy may even be used on the unseen portion of a joint between slabs.

But silicone rubber caulk in a color most similar to the granite is most often used in the exposed portion of the joint.

The difference: epoxy makes an unsightly seam that doesn't match the granite, while silicone rubber caulk makes a water barrier which may not be seen at all.

NOTE:
Marine supply houses sell colorants that can be added to epoxy products ... they are quite costly.

When joining materials you have to consider the weight of the material. Epoxy will seal a stone joint, but will not hold if under the weight of the stone. I've used it to waterproof a marble door saddle nicely, gluing the two half's together, but the inset mortar was carrying the stone's weight.

Yes. Granite installers use epoxy on those seams during install. BUT, they also have a colored filler. If you use this product as is, you will have a 'clear' joint that yellows with time.

This product would be difficult to get into small seams
If to try it have rags and acetone handy to clean up the edges and use a small applicator to get it in the seams like a tooth pick.
Remember its sets in 5 minutes too

The door is approximately 8 years old. The pull-up handle is secured to the bottom of the door by two self-tapping screws which have loosened up and no longer hold the handle in place. Can I use Gorilla Glue Epoxy to reset the screws and/or glue the handle directly to the door surface?

I don't know if this is how I would fix the problem you describe.
I would probably use through bolts with washers and nuts on the other side to secure handle to door. Epoxy would secure handle to door, but the spot where you glued could break off of the door.

I would think that either solution would be fine. Fill the holes with a little sawdust and mix it well with the epoxy...let it set and replace your screws. For a more permanent fix apply some epoxy to the handle as well.

Yes, provided the handle provides enough surface area for Gorilla Epoxy to be applied. SInce the handle has to withstand the force of opening the garage door, be sure to cover all contact points throughly and allow the product a day or two to achieve a full strength bond.

It should work. You might have to let the epoxy 'set up' before setting the screws or otherwise the epoxy might ooze out of the screw holes. Other caution would be that the epoxy might be brittle in cold temps. Worth a try (I'd try it myself if I were in your shoes).

I would use this epoxy as a two-pronged approach to repairing the handle. Although I used the epoxy and feel it is very strong, the torque force applied to a handle is multi-directional. First take out the screws and move the handle 1" in any direction. Then mix up the epoxy and glue the handle to the new location, securing it until it dries. After it dries for a few hours, take your self-tapping screws and drive them through the handle holes back into the door. You will then have a good fix with a surface bond between the handle and the door, plus the original attachment from the screws penetrating the door.

YES, I believe that this epoxy would work nicely to glue handle to garage door. I suggest you get slightly bigger diameter self - tapping screws, glue handle to garage door using epoxy and then screw bigger screws into original holes. The screws will help keep door handle in proper location and serve as extra protection to make sure handle does not come off again.

I had a similar problem with an automatic door closer on a metal door. The inside of the metal door was just foam type insulation and what happened to me is the plastic anchors I used to hold the closer to the door eventually pulled out.
Here's what I did I bought the Loctite Instant Mix epoxy at The Home Depot though because it has a long tube that automatically mixes the epoxy and allowed my to insert it into the holes and filled them with epoxy as well as the surrounding areas. Have some rags and actetone ready for clean up
I then inserted new plastic anchors into hose holes and let it dry for 24 hours. Some epoxy got into the anchors but I drilled it out with a small drill bit to allow the screw to enter.
I then reattached the door closer and it is on there solid now.
It is worth a shot for you, also if you can drill the handle to take 2 screws on both sides and use the epoxy in those holes to it will help. The more of the epoxy you get into the door the stronger it will be

It should do a good job of holding the handle to the fiberglass. I would put it in the screw holes, and then put the screws in. You will not be able to remove the handle...

You could also make the holes somewhat bigger, and epoxy in the the threaded inserts you normally use in wood, and then use machine screws to hold the handle on. That way, it is still removable, and you can tighten it up after the epoxy is set.

This should work very well. This seems to bond as well, or better, than most epoxies. The only problems might be if you used an exotic wood that secretes oil. Then you would have to clean it well using ether, naphtha, or some other solvent to "dry" the wood's surface. Then wipe it off and immediately glue them together.

For further info, I suggest checking your local woodworking store or a woodworking site, such as Lumberjocks.com or Wood.com.

Horribly. This was what I tried using for that exact purpose. It leaves a sticky finish, the hold broke very easily, and getting the mixture correct for small applications was difficult since the tubes squeeze out at different speeds. The gorilla super glue is much better even though I wanted to upgrade to epoxy this product did not work for me at all.
