Top Answer

Simple answer: yes. Mix on wax paper like any epoxy.

Answer

This is a great product. I recommend using the gun for this product as it makes it so easy to push out the correct ratio of mix. For small amounts or a onetime use, I have omitted the mixing tips and just pushed the mix (with the gun) onto a pallet and mixed thoroughly with a small putty or kitchen knife.

Answered on 01/08/2013 by JACK BARNES

Answer

This is a duel tube dispenser with different size holes for proper ratio. All you need is a couple dowels or square prices of wood mounted evenly to a board to push the glue out. Like Most epoxies you buy in the store that come with the means to expell the two resins. That's all that is missing.

Answer

I use the plex tubes so that I don't need the gun.

Answered on 01/07/2013 by JOHN GILMOUR

Answer

I did a small job fxing cracks in a sailboat hull. The small batches of Plexus come in a dual hypodermic like tube, similar to epoxies at Home Depot or Lowes. It was easy to squirt the stuff out and mix it on the surface. There's no need for a gun if you're doing small jobs.

Answered on 01/07/2013 by ROBERT PARKER

Answer

Yes. I used Plexus MA 310 to to adhere a plastic Lewmar hatch handle to the outside of the hatch cover...very small job requiring only 1 inch diameter of adhesive. No gun needed for this small job.

Answer

Eric, Thank you for your reply. The two pices of plastic I want to join are less then 3 inches in length and about 1/4 inch thick. I will try without a gun.

Answered on 01/07/2013 by Bob Bondo

Answer

The gun helps dispense exact proportions which is nice, but it is a bit of an investment if you are only looking for small jobs. The gun basically gives you an ergonomic package with which to displace the plungers in both cylinders of the cartridge, basically a double-syringe. Keep in mind that the cartridges are sized to dispense correct amounts of product per linear actuation of the plunger. If you can find a way to evenly press both plungers on the cartridge, you can do without the gun. When using the gun with the disposable mixing nozzle, you will get nicely proportioned and mixed adhesive, but since the nozzle needs to fill first, and has to be discarded full, it also takes a up a significant amount of adhesive which can be more than you might need to bond on a small fastener for example. I have used the gun without the nozzle to dispense onto a flat surface and mixed by hand, and I have also used the plunger only to dispense proportional amounts w/o the gun. If you are going to be doing any significant amount of bonding, the gun is surely nice to have.

Answer

Hi Bob, this is Eric in Seattle. I used the small tubes of plexus without much difficulty when repairing a broken mast track on an I-14 last year. It was a bit messy but certainly doable. If I were repairing carbon masts professionally all day long then I would certainly want the gun-style applicator, but for just a one-off job it wasn't worth the expense. I will caution you that it smells *terrible*, so hopefully your repair job is outside. Cheers, Eric

Answered on 01/07/2013 by ERIC LIPPERT

Answer

I use the epoxy to repair my kayak's inevitable small cracks and punctures. I use wooden popsicle sticks to mix and apply the epoxy to the hull's surface and then sand smooth when it hardens (I wait a few hours when possible). The numerous repairs over the years are not pretty, but functional, durable and watertight.

Hey Jim, never tried with this product. You might want to look into West G Flex depending upon your application. VTY, David

Answered on 06/26/2012 by David Sherman

Answer

I have used this to bond aluminum and steel to fiberglass and also to plastic snowmobile hoods. I chose this for the snowmobile work do its strength I extreme temperatures. When bonding metals to fiberglass, If it is structural, it is best to add the glass over the metal as much as possible. Also roughing the metal surface to be bonded or drilling holes for better adhesion is recommended.

Answered on 06/26/2012 by MATTHEW HALL

Answer

Yes it will, Im not sure on the strength of the bond but it will definitely attach the two surfaces. Hope this helps.

how do you remove this glue?

The only way I have removed Plexus is via mechanical grinding. When I talked to ITW, they did not suggest other options.

Answer

My application was on a lexan deck hatch/vent. This was the product that the boat manufacturer used. Since is was quite mature, I had to use a razor blade to remove the old material. It pretty much chipped off, and reasonably easily. Then used the new material to re-attach the open/close hardware to the hatch. Worked beautifully.

I do apologize but I do not know the answer to your question as my application did not require paint. I can however confirm how well the product work to glue my hatch cover hinge assembly to the hatch cover. Amazing performance that seems will last the life of my hatch.

Answer

Hi: I used the adhesive on the inside of my sea kayak's seat hangers. Even though it wouldn't be seen from the outside, I painted the repair with an non-marine black paint--perhaps it was enamel. So far, it's been looking as it did when I first painted it. Hope this helps.

I can't answer your question without looking at the tubes, which are on my boat. I plan on being on the boat tomorrow (Wednesday). I will look at the tubes and let you know. This is the only adhesive that has worked on the application of glueing the latch to a Lewmar deck hatch. Lewmar rccomended this adhesive for this application. I will look on my boat tomorrow and get back to you.

Answered on 09/02/2014 by PETER ARKIN

Answer

I use the large cartridges and they reseal. You can't reuse the 2 part mixer again but the adhesive is fine. I just leave the two part mixer on the gun until next time I need it then pull it off and switch with a new tip. Not sure of the shelf life, I go through about a tube per month.

Answer

Good question. I additionally bought the mixing tubes but apparently you need to also buy the plungers separately to dispense. I assumed they would be included as they are in every other type of glue that comes in a similar dispenser. I didn't want to re-order as the glue is already really expensive so I tried to fashion my own plunger. That didn't work and the glue was all lost. Probably great glue but get the plungers. I ended up using some marine epoxy I had around and it worked great. Good luck. Todd
