Bottle opening conundrum?

Page 2 of 2  


No, but at least you know the stuff works!
Seriously, is it a plastic bottle? Did you try holding it with 2 pairs of pliers or in a vise? Heat will often work when removing fasteners that have been loctited (that is a verb, isn't it?) but if it's a plastic bottle, that would be iffy. I guess in a worst case, you could cut or break the bottle and transfer the contents to another container.

I remember reading somewhere - that is one of the great mysteries of life...
If it's that good at what it does, why doesn't the top stick to superglue bottles/tubes?

That's because it isn't as good at its job as the advertisers want you to believe. It has limited application only. No adhesive, to my knowledge, will glue polyethyline, which is used to make bottles for SuperGlue and other things. r

Although not as strong as wood/wood bonds, polyethylene adhesives do exist. For instance:

Interesting. But those are more for mechanical bonds? ADhesion as opposed to COhesion?
After you posted that, I also learned that there are dozens of different polyethylenes. Who knew?
I can't imagine anything sticking to the white-ish milky polyetylene (milk bottles/Tupperware). In my countertop endeavors, I have been asked by butcher shops to make 'edges on huge cutting boards', and the only way I have even been to achieve that, is by having a specialist 'hot-wire' welding technician do it. They literally melt both sides of the joint. Those guys swear there isn't glue that will work.
I am going to write away for samples. It would help me a great deal if I could glue that stuff.
Thanks for the heads-up, Chris.

Dozens? There are hundreds.

There are no known solvents for Polyethlylene, Polypropylene or Nylon. That's why there are no adhesives for any of them. Or at least any that are truly good.

I recall reading the the adhesive in Loc Tite (TM) is anaerobic. It hardens in the absence of oxygen, while the presence of oxygen prevents it from hardening. So it is bottled with an air bubble deliberately left in the bottle to preserve it.

Is this why you don't post very often anymore--so you can realize a larger catch when you do?

Take it back and try another one before you buy it - OR - let SWMBO try to open it. :)

Better yet, give it to a kid. Works for safety caps.

David,
Izzat a variation on "I've fallen down and can't get up"?
Probably a tossup between bandsaw, tablesaw, and dozuki.
All seriousness aside.

Okay, Okay. How many dirty stinkin' apes does it take to remove a loctite cap? Three: One dirty stinkin' ape to remove the cap, and two dirty stinkin' apes to throw faeces at each other. Hehehehehehe
