    Cool ATS and Insta-plastik

    Does anyone have a alternate source for Insta-plastik? Last time we tried to order some more they were out of Business. Or what else do you use to repair covers, gears and broken tabs with? JB Quick is good for a lot of things but Insta-plastik was so much faster and useable in small places and in small repairs.

    Re: ATS and Insta-plastik

    I'm pretty good friends with my dentist, & have often thought of hitting him up about the availability of the stuff they use (even for temporaries). It seems like they have a wide array of high teck epoxies, etc., that are certainly strong & durable.

    Just a thought...

    Re: ATS and Insta-plastik

    My boss read that the powder is just bakeing soda. and the liqued is normal super glue. we have gotten Insta-Plastik for years and it always worked good on repairs. So for now we will be tring out the Bakeing soda and super glue to see if it works the same.
    Thanks Gar-the-Pilot

    As it is now so far so good. just the little Super glue tube will dry out faster. I have tried the greese trick around the lid and on the threads, it is hit and miss on saving an open Super Glue tube. Just me, but I think their Super Glue was Higher quality then $ store or wally world. I have thought of the RC airplane guys have a glue with an accellarant that may work for our stuff too. For now I will live with the Dollor store super glue and Bakeing soda.

    Re: ATS and Insta-plastik

    Just started using this stuff for super-quick, low-stress repairs. It's not the strongest fix in the world, but the UV curing light can be super handy at times. Even if you don't use it for the complete repair, you can permanently "tack" the broken pieces together, then apply a stronger/slower adhesive.

    I have tested superglue and bicarb against the other stuff.
    The other stuff it a lot stronger and you get powder for plastics and powder that works better on metals.

    Whatever
