Loctite Glue


A while back I asked what kind of glue to use to attach my urethane Superman Returns symbol to my spandex costume, and loctite glue was reccommended. I went to the store and there are tons of different loctite glues to choose from. Which one do I use, and should I glue it down while wearing it? Or not?? emoticon

Re: LOCTITE glue question??!


I don't know much about Loctite, other than it bonds almost permanently... But DAP Contact Cement also sticks to urethane and will give you the option of removing it one day if you ever want to change your bodysuit.

Let's say some dope spills something on you by accident or you lean against a painted wall or someone sprays you with Kryptonite acid or whatever... The cloth can't get washed with the emblem on, so you would need to take it off. DAP holds like a champ, but it isn't so permanent as to not allow you to peel the fabric off of the symbol. And try to understand that comment... If you try peeling the symbol off of the fabric, you may tear the symbol.

I peeled my '89 Batman armor off of my bodysuit and it tore in a thin spot. But when I then stated holding the fabric differently and pulled it off of the latex, I met up with a much easier time.


Sorry to not fully answer your question, but this is my experience.

Maybe someone else will give other advice.

Good Luck! emoticon

Thanks man. I may end up going that route, but I thought there was someone who was working with the Loctite? Is there anyone who can help with this?

Ah yes. That'd be me. Sorry on the slow update. Since I don't have my suit yet, I'm going tomorrow or Tuesday to my local shop and get a sample of vytaflex 40. I'll then proceed to try a bunch of different super glues with it to adhere it onto spare spandex. I won't have my suit for a couple more days, so I can't confirm 100% yet.

Hey Riddler,

I went back to my previous thread on this topic and found that you said that Loctite super glue would work. Can anyone confirm this? I've gotta get this project done yesterday, lol. emoticon

Lol. That's what ***** told me loctite would be great on his new urethane armour. I tried it with another type of urethane before and it worked well. I didn't try it on the the Vytaflex. I tried it on PMC-746.

urethane loves superglue. I would attach the emblem while you're wearing the suit so it's exactly where it needs to be while you're wearing it. I would also saran wrap my chest too, because the stuff burns when it seeps throu the pours in the spandex. Good luck man. IM me if you need to, I've gone through dozens of loctite bottles in the last year.

I don't use DAP anymore. Loctite works much better.
