Is the setting time of superglue (cyanoacrylate, just in case there are
other types) affected by low temperature?
I want to stick the fridge door tray back in place as one of the lugs is
broken off. Will near-zero temp affect it?
I had a similar problem when one of the drawers in my fridge door broke.
I could remove it, but I used Araldite (the two tube stuff), which seems to
be harder than the original plastic!
I don't know whether Araldite is affected by temperature ...
There's a chance it won't bond the plastic. If it does,
it's more likely to be a solvent weld caused by the solvent
in the glue than the glue itself.
I mended mine with a thermal weld -- hold both surfaces in
a gas flame for a second or two, and then push them together.
I could do this out of the fridge, and then bend the door to
ping it back into its hinges.
