homemade perspex cement How To:  DIY Acrylic Cement

mz sept plastics 150x150 How To:  DIY Acrylic CementA commenter on my recent post about using cheap paint-stripper DCM to solvent-weld acrylic hipped me to this cool method of making thicker-bodied acrylic adhesives by dissolving acrylic chips in bulk acetone. I haven’t tried it myself, yet, but it seems like a fairly well-known method in the PC case-modder community, among others. And it’s a pretty sure bet that the more chips you add, the more “body” (viscosity) the resulting glue will have. Looking forward to experimenting with this. [Thanks, Kevin Gunn!]
