What types of plastic glass do not go white when bent, and what is the best cement to join it to itself, please?
When I am mid-way through a project I start thinking about the next one!
I want to build a small-ish fish tank with a curved front.
I envisage building a former of wood and 'wrapping' the plexi-glass round it to
meet in the middle at the back. I will heat the plexi-glass gently so it can be bent but
hopefully retain most of its thickness.
What kinds of plexi-glass can withstand being bent and not turn colour?
Also, what would be the strongest kind of cement to secure that join?
I intend to reinforce that join by 'sandwiching' it with an additional piece of plexi-glass
to give a greater surface area for the join, as water is incredibly heavy!
FWIW I will also have much thicker plexi-glass at the bottom and top (top with access holes)
with plenty of silicone around all edges.
Many thanks for stopping by; I appreciate any thoughts you have.
I will be posting this project as an 'ible to say thanks for the help.
