Hi, we're dressing up our shade structure this year and after researching glues to cement the various components together, I settled on WeldWood, which was recommended on a lot of fora and at the hardware store. Unfortunately, neither the water-based nor solvent-based version is working out: the surfaces peel away from each other relatively easily, or buckle and bubble up when there is a temperature change. I quake at the thought of fun the Playa will have with the assembly if this is happening in a heated apartment . . .
So basically, I'm asking if anyone has suggestions for a bombproof cement that can be used to glue the following components together?
Velcro hook/loop to unpainted wood
Velcro hook/loop to painted wood
Velcro hook/loop to fiberglass (you are seeing a pattern at about this point)
Velcro hook/loop to vinyl stripping
Vinyl stripping to fiberglass
All surfaces, velcro backing included, have been lightly sanded in the hope of increasing adhesion. Whatever I use, I'll need a lot of, since feel talking about roughly 30 linear feet of structure (two 15-foot walls).
Please help - the project components are essentially complete, but for this.
Having it all come undone at this point would leave me . . . unglued.
