How to glue rubber beading strip around helmet...
« on: June 17, 2021, 02:12:17 pm »
I need advice please. The rubber strip around the base of my wife's hat has pulled loose. I tried with Bostik / Genkem, and it came off after a short while.

I then tried hot glue, and it came off...

Any suggestions please...   :thumleft:

The 3M black stuff they used to glue windscreens to cars will work.

Wurth sells it in small tubes. Once opened you will have to use the whole tube, tried my best to seal and save it, no luck.

If you need a small amount look for the same black stuff that they glue car mirrors to windscreens. Most of the car accessory places keep it.

Clean everything with plain spirts before you glue it.

There is a automotive rubber shop that sells beading, grommets, door rubber and everything rubber related in Boksburg near the East rand Mall. They sell a rubber glue that works on rubber and plastic items. Unfortunately I cannot remember their name.

Sikaflex is excellent for bonding components that requires a bit of flexibility after bonding.
Rubber bonded to anything is best done with a adhesive that is flexible, such as the correct SikaFlex.
Another product that is excellent for bonding soft items eg torn bike seat or cracked helmet helmet inner lining, is Wonda Fix black (made by Pratley)

Cyanoacrylate does bond to most types of rubber, but it is not a flexible bond, therefore such a cyanoacrylate bond does not last.

The base of your helmet can be seen as inflexible.

An important point to keep in mind is that one should avoid using silicone as much as possible.
Not only for this case of the helmet, for all situations where bonding is required in general.
Reason is that once you applied silicone to a surface, no other adhesive will ever bond to that surface.
