    Having had to cut a twin skinned bath panel to fit a new bath, what adhesive would you suggest to glue the two skins back to each other; and what do you suggest to seal the panel to the acrylic bath? Silicone bath sealer doesn't seem to stick to the panel at all!

    the prob with that is I cant get a panel the correct size - hence the trimming.

    90% of the time you have to trim panels down, have both skins detached from each other? What did you cut it with?

    they have detached along the top edge and at one end. not completely, but enough to allow the panel to flex., so if I could rebond the edges, it would stiffen it substantially.

    The only thing to bond acrylic are solvent based, same as whats used with solvent weld pipe. It melts the two products together, you could try it but it may discolour the surface.

    I'd still like to know how you cut it though :D

    that shouldnt be a problem as it only the inside surface that needs to be bonded. Or are you saying the discolouration will leach thru?

    heat might distort it more, i would think.

    It could do, it's only thin so you may see some discoloration

    Have you tried contacting the manufacturer for their advice?

    Try super glue. Or the mitre-fix type with a spray activator.

    Super glue and spray activater that window fitters use it pretty awesome stuff, not saying it will work here as I`ve never tried it on bath panel.
