I have a TD-350 inline fan with a broken fixing bracket / reducer. It is hard plastic that is under some slight bending force when fixed.
Superglue was previously tried but the contact area is poor and the joint easily failed when stressed.
Is there any adhesive that can fix it ?
I don't know if solvent weld would work - I went to my shed but my old bottle has dried up !
Image links follow:
The only sort of glue I've used for this sort of thing is Araldite and often
with some mechanical addition from some other material on the joint if
there is room for it.
Bloody plastic engineering again.

My Keter plastic shed's RH door blew off in a gale 2 years ago, breaking
off the small spigot that formed the hinge. I roughed the whole area up
as much as I could and mixed a good dollop of decent (SP Systems or
West) epoxy with milled wood fibre as the filler.
It looks pretty ugly, but it has worked well in spite of the bending forces
that are involved. Things like closing the door on stuff falling behind
it and so on.
I should have painted it. It is starting to turn brown the way epoxy
does in sunlight.
