Default Correct Glue

Hello Everyone from the Elbow of Cape Cod,
I am planning to build a industrial type two story warehouse building out of a 15 1/2 gallon Rubbermaid Storage Tote. I am told that this tote is manufactured out of a Polypropylene type plastic, it is almost a clear plastic. I would like to attach or glue corrigated metal siding to four sides This building will be used to conceal a water filter and electrical box for my garden pond. Any help or information regarding the proper glue to use would be most appreciated.
Thank you in advance for you replies.
Ron,
Chatham,
MA

I checked the "thistothat.com" web site but it doesn't break down the materials list to anything more specific than Plastic, but it suggested epoxy. I think you should probably rough up the plastic well to provide a "tooth" for the glue to grasp.

Attaching the corrugated material via a mechanical connection is likley the best approach with the polyp container. I'd use small stainless hardware with rubber gasket/washers.

3M Tack and Trim adhesive would probably work. Get it at auto supply stores.

Nothing will glue to Polypropylene for any length of time. When you bond Polypro to Polypro you have to weld it. Pick another material to glue your siding to.

My suggestion would be to attach a subwall such as wood, etc., to the Polypro with mechanical fastners such as screws, etc. Then attach your final exterior siding to the subwall with glue to cover both it and the fastners. The subwall can be either solid pieces or a lattice work depending on scrap materials at hand and degree of glue surface needed.

Not sure where everyone is reading that he is gluing polypro to polypro lol, its polypro to metal siding is what he said. Just use liquid nails in a calk gun size to glue the metal siding to the plastic tub or 3m like Jerry said, see which one is cheaper. you'll be good to go!

If you want the metal siding laying on the ground around the structure then this is the way to go. The glue will stick to the metal but just pop off of the Polypropylene.

I guess if you dont do it right it will , you mar the surface a bit with some rough grit sandpaper, and then use the liquid nails and let dry and you'll be fine. Guessing you tried Rusell and missed a step somewhere...hmm
