    I can only speak for MEK which I blend myself with some dissolved ABS. I have used this mix for a number of years. You only get about 2 mins until it grips maybe even less time depending on the weather. However, it takes a few hours, at least, to achieve good strength. The result is that the join is truly welded and in many cases one of the components fails before the actual join.

    I need Help with a Krick "Paula IV". On how to glue the Hull to the Deck ABS.
    I've seen people suggest MEK And Plastruct Bondene (for styrene to Styrene and ABS to ABS)
    Whatโ€™s the working time for MEK? How do I get it in between the 2 surfaces which are about 1 1/2" in height.
    Same question with using Plastruct Bondene. Working time is seconds.
    I understand epoxies won't hold over long periods of time??? Epoxies have a longer working time that I can apply 1st to both surfaces then I can join the deck to the hull with clamps.
    Once I get deck and hull joined it will be very difficult getting into hull area.
    Thank you
