I dunno Bob - I just started using their Shoe Goo to waterproof my boots and it works great for that. I tried using some at work to repair some cracked plastic waste baskets and it sorta worked for that, held but popped off without a lot of effort. I did notice a 4 pack sampler package in your link. I can get the Marine stuff at ACE hardware here, may try that next or see if I can find a sampler pack locally. Amazon is $2 for the package and $4 for the mailing.

I don't know about the UMHW, but it will glue almost everything else. And, I'm not sure about plastic to wood, but I glued several plastic hooks to concreted for my Mom, about 14 years ago, and they have not come off yet.

Default Adhesives for UHMW

From my notes, there are specific adhesives for UHMW.

RELTEK adhesives, sealants and coatings for hard-to-bond substrates and harsh environments.

This link will provide access to the information. However, please take careful note that there is a bonding procedure for bonding UHMW to UHMW as compared to UHMW to other materials. To ensure success, please read the instructions and background information carefully before selecting a method to follow. Bonding to dissimilar materials will each bring different characteristics to the table.

Please note that they do specifically state that they sell to the end user so don't be shy. There is no mention of cost on their site. I would expect volume speaks volumes. It is also possible that the end user may be a major part of their research and development process where new methods, materials are developed for the commercial market because of projects by end users like us.

A lot depends on the specific type of plastic, Kelly. Some glues work well with some plastics, but essentially dissolve others.

For some applications, Cyanoacrylate glue (aka CA, or Super Glue) might be quick and easy. Epoxy or other adhesives might be better for other applications. Then, there's always the screw (in one of of its many forms).

2 pack epoxy, well mixed "will" probably hold. Can you put grooves or scratches in the plastic to key it to the epoxy. I drill small holes in the parts to give the epoxy something to bite into.
