Recommend for all types of polypropylene bonding use Tecbond 267-43
Tecbond 263 is an unique hot melt adhesive with a high molten tack (good instant grab ability) and provides excellent heat resistance (105c) and good low temperature resistance (-20c). Not suitable on all grades of polypropylene, restricted adhesion to grades with high ethylene content.
To maximise bond strength when bonding polypropylene to itself it is important that sufficient adhesive is applied hot and the surfaces brought together as quickly as possible. It is strongly recommended that a good quality high output Tec glue gun is used to ensure the consistent strong bonds.
Recommended only for use with the following Tec glue guns: Tec 810-12 or the Tec 820-12
Tecbond 263 is specifically designed for bonding most types polypropylene (PP) and Correx and is not suitable for bonding of other plastics. Not suitable for bonding polyproplylene products with a higher ethylene content.
All constituent parts of this adhesive have been approved by the American F.D.A under C.F.R 21.175.105 (adhesives).
For use with all Tec 12mm glue guns.

Important: Hot Melt Adhesives do have limitations! Being a thermoplastic product hot melt adhesives soften with heat and return to a solid state by the loss of heat. With this in mind, standard hot melt adhesives are not recommend for applications subjected to heat or direct sunlight. However we do offer grades with high heat resistance. Water and hot melt adhesives are a bad combination – standard hot melt adhesives are not waterproof and should be avoided for external applications. On saying this, we do have PUR adhesives that can be use externally and can even be dry cleaned. We strongly recommend that you thoroughly test the product and satisfy yourselves that the product is suitable for your application. This product suggested uses are a generalised suggestion and other factors may play a role in achieving the required bond, e.g. heat resistance, chemical resistance, gap filling, surface area to glue, open time or a degree of glue flexibility may be required etc.

Seems to stick Correx OK not really sure if worth the extra over other glue sticks available from Glugunsdirect but was brought to stick Correx which it does seems to go a long way too only real problem do get a glue shadow if correx has light behind it but not noticable unless in direct sunlight .
very quick service thanks again
oh yellow correx was used in this case.

A little pricey… I guess it you don’t need maximum glue strength you could try using EVA for tack-bonds.
The bonds with these sticks are good, I also experimented with PP bottle tops and was surprised they stuck as well as the correx. When testing ultimate strength, the glue would come apart – but glue remained stuck to the correx (and in some cases tore the correx). The glue isn’t quite as strong as polypropylene itself, and gives at a lower temperature. Butt-joints can be made but the bond seems to work better when glued face-to-face.
I was also able to glue polyethylene foam to polypropylene correx and it was impossible to separate without tearing the foam… and using 4mm correx, I was also able to seal the ends of the flutes by running a bead of glue along the edge – ideal for stopping water or other stuff getting inside the correx. It may be possible to glue other materials to correx too, but not tried.

I am with an American company, ISC Engineering. I found this on the web and would like to see if we can get a sample of this TEC263 glue stick? Please advise at:
Thank you- Dale

Wasn’t sure at first if this was the right glue but after a chat with the guys there at Gluegunsdirect I was confident it was. Thanks guys.

Used this to bond a ménage membrane down only down side I did not know how much adhesive to I would use so ordered 2x 5kg, received 2 plus one free have finished the job and have 2 and a half boxes left. Apart from that it did exactly what I wanted.
