Good Day all, I have a 4" ABS pipe length as a mast tube on a smal tri....long and short of it is that it fractured (long story and it makes me look like a bone head). The break was clean and I am able to get it back in place no problem. I plan to use Plexus or similar two part methylacrylate adhesive on the break line itself and then spiral wrap the whole assembly with biaxial tape.
So here is the question...I am getting various suggestions, polyester resin, epoxy resin and, yesterday, a composite spar maker suggested wetting out strips of the biaxial tape with the Plexus MA adhesive. That had never occurred to me.
Has anyone tried such an approach and does it make sense?
The length of the break spans about 8' up and down this length og ABS tube and since it's tough access I would have to wet out the tape on the work bench and then use one hand to spiral wrap the affected area.
Thanks in advance.
David, not always the bonehead thankfully......
