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

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.

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.

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.

Question

Can one use it to repair seams in between slabs of granite?

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.

Question

I have a roll-up/roll-down garage door that is made of fiberglass front and back over a foam core.

Asked by

Seaucus, NJ

August 21, 2013
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.

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.

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.

You may end up degrading the foam. Would not use epoxy for this application. Fill the original holes and re-attach the handle in a new location.

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.

Yes. The epoxy is dispensed in even portions of cement and activator from the syringe. It is then mixed and applied with a popsicle stick or similar applicator. Be sure to use plenty of epoxy for your application.

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.

This epoxy is strong, but it' doesn't dry clear and is a bit of a mess to work with which makes it not ideal for fine work as jewelery repair, where a super glue or solder are better choices.

I think it will. Epoxies are the glue choice for bonding metals. just make sure the bonding sites are really clean by using some air-drying solvent like naphtha or alcohol.
