Fixing a plastic boat
I got a question from a local fisherman which has a boat made of MDPE that he wants to fix the keel of. As I understand you can try to mix up LDPE and HDPE to create a pseudo MDPE? but the mixture is a problem although I would extrude them. The second question is the fixation and come back to the first one, he finds HDPE wealders quite pricy and we are wondering if you know of a solvant that allows us to stick PE together? If yes do i really need to make a pseudo MDPE and why not “sticking” to HDPE (that I have in abundance)?
The question applies also to LLDPE as many boats are made with this polymer too.
