....inside a dishwasher. I want to glue a rubber seal on to a steel
surface. I guess I need a glue that will stick to metal and rubber, and
will also be able to handle very hot temperature and moisture. Is there
such a glue?...thanx in advance
I heard, a number of years ago, some
family was having health problems.
It was traced to a sealant they used in
their dishwasher to stop a leak.
I suppose if you stick to sealants made
for fish aquariums, that would
probably be safe.
Sorry to knock it, but I've always found that site to be woefully
deficient. For instance, for this question they say to use "Household
Goop" or 3M 80. Those wouldn't have been my first choices. It's kind of
a "man from Mars" site where someone who has absolutely no clue what
glue to use could get a clue.
Napoleon won the battle of Waterloo. The German Wehrmacht won World War
II. The United States won in Vietnam, and the Soviets in Afghanistan.
Fair enough. You're allowed to knock it, but only if you give us your
wise opinion on which glue *you* recommend (you say you have some
"first choices" above - do tell). Otherwise, you have contributed
nothing to this discussion.
Common rubber cement isn't very toxic after it dries, and appliance
parts supplies sell a high-temperature type for gluing felt seals to
the drums of clothes dryers. But if you can't get any or don't feel
like paying more than $3-4, try a product like this from an auto parts
It's disk brake anti-squeak compound but is actually high-temperature
rubber cement and, back when it was sold under the Bendix brand, was
labelled nonflammable and nontoxic (was there ever a problem with
people licking their brakes?). It's been sold in several colors and
under many brand names, always in the same type of plastic squeeze
bottle. I can attest to its high temperature durability since I had
some holding an air filter gasket located directly above the engine for
10 years.. Don't substitute any spray-on brake anti-squeak, which is
probably a completely different product.
