Hi all,
I have a canoe that I need to fix a crack in, it's an old town canoe made from three layers of polyethylene plastic, outer layer, foam layer and inner layer. I have a crack in the inner layer of plastic, into the foam (which is still polyethylene) but not thru the outer layer... old town has an adhesive marine epoxy that they say will fix it 100%, but I feel that using a cohesive fix would be better. That said, my plastics chemistry is sorely lacking and I don't even know what would melt/solvate/dissolve/weld etc on polyethylene!! does anyone here have any suggestions as to what would actually allow me to rearrange the plastic molecularly to really fix this crack??? I am a chemist so I can get just about anything I need, so the sky's the limit on this one!!!
thank in advance!!!
