Glue Nylon? No, “bond” Nylon, with the Bonding Poly Process (Process)
Conventional wisdom is that you can’t glue nylon, including nylon 6, nylon 66, nylon 6/6-6, nylon 11, nylon 12, Zytel® or any type of nylon. With the use of an adhesion promoter and a CA you can get a modest superficial glue joint with some nylons. By adding the power of chemistry and the laws of physics you can now “bond” any type of nylon. By using the Bonding Poly Process (patented), you can bond nylon to itself or to any other substrate quickly, easily and permanently.
Wherever and whenever we state that we can bond nylon or any other poly the universal reaction is skepticism. Skeptics are the reason why we have a money-back guarantee. If any of our kits do not perform to your expectations, we will refund your purchase price. Simply return the kit. So far, after selling thousands of kits, we have not had to make a refund.
To bond nylon
- Use sandpaper to rough the nylon surface(s) then clean the surface with a soft cloth.
- Saturate the nylon with an adhesion promoter for polymers.
- Spray one nylon surfaces with a solvent based Activator/Accelerator (AA).
- Warm the nylon with a hair dryer or heat gun. Warm to very warm but not hot.
- Apply an SI Structural Adhesive to the opposite surface (from where you sprayed the Accelerator).
- Firmly press for fifteen seconds.
- Warm the bond for twenty-thirty seconds
As a result of this process, the two nylon surfaces will be bonded. Operational strength is achieved almost immediately, but the strength of the bond is directly proportional to the amount of time it is given to fully cure. The video below shows how to use the bonding poly process. The process is the same for nylon, as it is for silicone. We will soon have our own nylon 3D printing Bonding Poly Process video as well.
To bond nylon to metal
- Rough the nylon and the metal with a low-grit coarse sand paper.
- Saturate the nylon surface with an adhesion promoter designed to work with nylon and other poly’s.
- Spray a solvent based Activator/Accelerator (AA) on either the nylon or metal.
- Warm the nylon surface with a hair dryer or heat gun. Warm to very warm, but not hot.
- Apply an SI Structural Adhesive to the opposite surface from where the accelerated was sprayed.
- Firmly press for 8 – 15 seconds.
- Warm the bond for 16-18 seconds
Bonding Polymer Process (patented)
What’s the secret of the Bonding Poly Process? It’s how we combine
- a polymer-enhanced, Surface Insensitive Structural Cyanoacrylate
- our standard Activator/Accelerator, (the chemistry)
- the Poly Prep (chemistry again)
- and heat (the physics part of the process.)
As a result of the Bonding Poly Process, your result is hard to believe. Our first bond (repairing a polyurethane bumper cover), shocked us. We didn’t believe the result. Over the next several months, we repeated the Process on every polymer we could find. Success was 100% even when abused, the bonds didn’t fall apart. Finally, we asked ourselves, why did it take us sixteen years to figure out the process? When working with nylon, Delrin®, polypropylene or any other poly, it is extremely important to understand that polymers are slow at fully curing. In most cases however, the item will be strong enough to put into use immediately.
Nylon 3D Printing Bonding Solutions
The fact that bonded items can in most instances be put to use immediately, makes it ideal for 3D printing applications which mostly require the bonding of nylon. Most 3D printers utilize nylon. The Bonding Poly Process (Process) makes Nylon 3D Printing quick and easy. Nylon is the material of choice as it is strong, durable and abrasion resistant. What makes it less than ideal in reality, is the slip additives in the material. Not to mention that Polymide (PA) or Nylon is a poly which already has a naturally slick surface, from its low surface energy. Our Poly Prep Adhesion Promoter and Process, bridge the gap between nylon’s ideal properties and its less than desirable ones.
To bond polymers, you need one of poly kits. Our Basic Poly Kit (shown below) includes;
- an SI Structural Cyanoacrylate,
- our standard Activator/Accelerator,
- the Poly Prep,
- Finally, a detailed step-by-step instruction sheet.
Our instruction sheet is easy to understand.

I make custom 3D printed items for people on etsy. More often than not, people want the most elaborate pieces imaginable. The working time this system gives me is priceless. I like to prime the nylon first, then use the bonding agent and then spray the activator to set it. I don't make any mistakes lining the pieces up that way. It gives me plenty of working time and then i spray it when i have it just right. I dont know what i would do without it. Dries clear. You would think it was all one piece.
The front 2' of my Remington stock broke completely off. It wasn't just a crack, it was in two pieces. I didn't think I would be able to fix it. Tried some stuff on amazon first and it seemed to work. Gave it a day and it fell right back apart as soon as I went to pick it up. Then I bought this with the debonder to get off the old junk, like they told me. Cleaned the old junk off and wiped it down. Let the debonder dry off and then stuck the two pieces together. Didn't want to waste another day waiting, so I tried seeing if it was together after a short while and it was.
