Besides gluing or epoxing one metal part to another metal part (metal to metal), is it possible to tape them together?

I am interested in, possibly, finding a special kind of tape that can bond metal together. Where could I find such a tape? So, instead of using glue or epoxy to bond metal together, are there special kinds of tapes that could do this? Perhaps a special kind of duct tape?

Squishy plastic lava thing

Remember these squishy things? You got them cheap at toy stores and were always suspicious of them breaking and spilling their noxious contents all over you and your family (at least, that is what I worried about as a kid.) I think I had a cd case with purple blobs of liquid. Anyway, I want to try making something like that, though I haven't done anything like it before. I suppose I need your help with ideas for 1. what would be a decent liquid filling that wouldn't degrade or get moldy or fade somehow 2. how I would go about sealing the edges in a aesthetically pleasing manner. I suppose there is heat sealing, and glues that bond plastics? And...I guess I would not be able to make very complex shapes??

Bonding hydrogen and oxygen to make water? Answered

Ok, so I got how to get water, but how do I condense it without losing much, and would it be at least a semi-efficient and/or fast way of obtaining around a cup of water? So, I have another question. I know, I've been posting a new question at least once a week for a while now and you're all probably like "Dark Master87, Y u no shut up and stop trying to do impossible things?? w(O;O)w" Most people on here probably know about electrolysis and seperating water into hydrogen and oxygen with electricity, but it's simple and I don't currently have a use for it. But does anyone know how to bond hydrogen and oxygen to create water? I'm expecting there to be heating or cooling involved, probably more likely heating. Would you light the two gases on fire? Or would they just automatically bond with each other at the point of contact? More importantly, would this be possible to acheive on the limited budget of a 14 year old hobbyist who *may* have access to *some* lab equipment, but probably not? Thanks for paying attention, if it's not feasible/possible, I won't mind if you nag about me never doing any reasonable projects. And also, how hard would it be to get the hydrogen and oxygen from electrolysis with losing too much of it?

Suggestions for bonding PVC sheets to ABS sheets, for composite armor?

I have a crazy idea for making tough plates out of thermoplastics. Does anyone have any ideas for bonding PVC to ABS plastic? Two materials will add to the strength and durability of the plate. If possible I would also like to sandwich some kind of fibers in between the two plates, such as carbon fiber. Does anyone have any ideas on this? I was planning on heat forming the sheets, then maybe pressing them together at high heat, but an easier method would be appreciated.

Swiss engineers build Bond-like underwater car

It is called the sQuba, and it is a car that runs on land, as well as in the water. Inspired by the Lotus Espirit, in the James Bond Movie, "The Spy Who Loved Me", the Swiss engineering company, Rinspeed Inc, was the mastermind behind it.If you are heading to the Geneva car show, it is expected to make a visit there.Read the full article at Company CEO Frank Rinderknecht, a self-professed Bond fan, said he has been waiting 30 years to recreate the car he saw Roger Moore use to drive off of a dock.The sQuba can plow through the water at a depth of 30 feet and has electrical motors to turn the underwater screw.You'll have to break out the wetsuit, however.The car has an open top, meaning that the two passengers are exposed to the elements."For safety reasons, we have built the vehicle as an open car so that the occupants can get out quickly in an emergency," said Rinderknecht, 52.Passengers will be able to keep breathing underwater through an integrated tank of compressed air similar to what is used in scuba diving.The sQuba's top speed on land is about 77 mph, but it slows down to 3 mph on the surface of the water, and 1.8 mph underwater.

Checking Theories

In this topic, place your theories of some chemistry experiments in the comments section, starting with this one. To start with, Fe + 2H2O --> FeO2 + 2H...Place iron fillings to fill 1/3 of a water bottle. Fill the rest with water, and place a balloon on top. Wait X days/weeks/months. The water reacts with the iron to extract the oxygen from the water, leaving only hydrogen, and rust in the products. In the reactants, the hydrogen was bonded to the oxygen.Will someone tell me if this works? The energy that bonds this is the potential energy in the water.

Hf or rf welder

I have some flexible clear vinyl that I've been trying to figure out how to infuse together for a project I want to make.  I've been successful with vinyl glue (after much tests with different glues and epoxies). However chemical bonding can become expensive.  Ive tried many experiments with melting the vinyl together with soldering irons. Either the bond is not strong enough or it melts through, or it weakens the material too much.  I'd be really interested to see someone make an rf or hf welder that is capable of welding heavy gauge vinyl.  Cheers!

No Question but here are some tips I know? Answered

Tape together the cleaner solvent and the glue cans side-by-side. Less to move around, and you'll always need both. If NOT needing a water/air tight bond you can mix the solvent & glue together then coat the pipe to glue. Saves time, but not strong enough for plumbing. (Check at the store first on this one. Been awhile since I used this. ) A 1-1/2" piece of CPVC (gray pipe) is just the right size for splicing together two pieces of 2" pipe. Just slip it inside for a 'hidden' fitting. I didn't see this, but be sure to hold your pipes together for 5-10 seconds when gluing. The chemical weld causes a slight expansion that will push the pipe out of the fitting up to halfway. Then it bonds!!

Epoxy vs resorcinol or other adhesives for boat building

I've been a big fan of epoxy for a long time. It's been recommended to me as the best glue ever, and lately as a great/durable coating to be used like paint. It's so popular that companies are starting to market things as epoxies that might be related but, really are something else. FYI anything sold as a "one part epoxy" is not an epoxy at all. it's something else. Epoxies must be 2 part.My father started building wooden model sailboat, and wanted to use Resorcinol. What?? Never heard of it. can't be good. must be toxic. use epoxy, Dad. Lately, I've heard differently, with some caveats.This was mentioned on forums: upshot is that epoxy bond strength weakens dramatically with exposure to heat or (maybe?) saltwater or UV light. Additionally, epoxy's bond is not as fatigue resistant as wood. So using it as a structural bond is questionable. Using it in hot (120F+) environments is questionable. Using it in saltwater environments is questionable.Since boats sit in the sun, tend to flex, and are often exposed to saltwater, how can we possibly use epoxies in long term situations.I had to search hard to find any info on Resorcinol, but it's cheaper, supposedly lasts longer. But, as far as I can tell, it's really hard to find. Comments?
