What epoxy/adhesives are recommended for adhering acrylic to wood with a permanent, strong bond?
I'm working on an art related project where I will need to bond wood and acrylic together and am looking for suggestions on the type(s) of glue/epoxy I should be looking into?
The ideal properties I'm looking for are in order of importance:
1) non-toxic/non-corrosive (at the very least once dried)
2) permanent bond
3) strong hold/hardens when dried, i.e. not silicon (product might get dropped on occasion)
5) dries clear (preferable crystal clear as the seams will be highly visible)
After doing research online, I've found that most acrylic contains something called "mold release agents" to help remove the acrylic from the molds during manufacture. Most of the glues I've found state the acrylic must be free of these agents for their glue to retain its bond properly overtime. I am unsure of the nature of the acrylic I will be bonding so would prefer to find a solution that works even if release agents are present (if possible).
So far my research is pushing me towards IPS' Weld-On 45 (which meets most of my criteria but not all of it) here:
Its a bit overkill strength-wise and price-wise, it is not cheap so any alternatives would be welcome.
Thanks in advance for your help! :)
