Bond, don’t glue Nylon

Glue Nylon?  No, “bond” Nylon, with the Bonding Poly Process (patent pending)

Conventional wisdom is that you can’t glue nylon, including nylon 6, 6, nylon 7,7, nylon 6, 12 Zytel® or any type of nylon.  With the use of an adhesion promoter and a CA you can get a modest glue join with some nylons.  By adding the power of  chemistry and and the laws of physics you can now “bond” any type of nylon.   … to itself or to any other substrate.  By using the Bonding Poly Process (patent pending), you can bond nylon to nylon or to any other substrate quickly, easily and permanently.

Wherever and wherever 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 glue nylon

  1. Use sandpaper to rough the nylon surface(s) then clean the surface with a soft cloth.
  2. Saturate the nylon with an adhesion promoter for polymers.
  3. Spray one nylon surfaces with a solvent based Activator/Accelerator (AA).
  4. Warm the nylon with a hair dryer or heat gun.  Warm to very warm but not hot.
  5. Apply an SI cyanoacrylate to the opposite surface (from where you sprayed the Accelerator).
  6. Firmly press for te-fifteen seconds.
  7. 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.  Full strength will take at least as month. 

To glue nylon to metal

  1. Rough the nylon and the metal with a low-grit coarse sand paper.
  2. Saturate the nylon surface with an adhesion promoter designed to work with nylon and other poly’s.
  3. Spray a solvent based Activator/Accelerator (AA) on either the nylon or metal.
  4. Warm the nylon surface with a hair dryer or heat gun.  Warm to very warm, but not hot.
  5. Apply an SI cyanoacrylate to the opposite surface from where the accelerated was sprayed.
  6. Firmly press for 8 – 15 seconds.
  7. Warm the bond for 16-18 seconds

as a result of this process, the nylon and metal surfaces are bonded.  Operational strength is immediate.  Full strength will take at least as month. 

Bonding Polymer Process (patent pending)

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 Bonding Poly on every polymer we could find.   Success was 100%.  When the results were tested?  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 very slow curing.  Bonds will take thirty days or more to fully cure.  However, in most cases, the item can be put into use immediately.

Watch the video below on bonding Delrin®.  In this case. we bond Delrin® to polypropylene.

Bonding Polymers

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.
