Is it ok to get Plast-aid® on my hands?

Many people allow Plast-aid® to come in contact with their hands and fingers. Here's what happens when you do:

  • If the powder gets on your skin, nothing really happens at all. It easily wipes off or washes off with water.
  • If the liquid gets on your skin, the areas that came in contact with it will turn a white color. This is because the liquid acts as a solvent and takes the natural oils off your skin. Your skin may feel a bit dry, so the best thing to do is wash your hands with soap and water after your job is done.
  • If the Plast-aid® hardens on your fingers, don't worry. After is has cured it will "crumb" off if your pick at it with your fingernails. After you get most of it off, wash your hands with soap and water and the rest should come off.

These are the cases with most people; nonetheless, some people do find that Plast-aid® can irritate their skin. One might find that it causes a small redness or rash.

Despite the chance of a slight irritation, we suggest you give it a try. It's incredible to form and work Plast-aid® into shapes and parts with your hands as it enters its clay state.

What will Plast-aid® bond to?

When using Plast-aid, two types of bonds are possible: a "chemical" bond and a "mechanical" bond.

In a chemical bond, Plast-aid actually becomes a part of a material on a molecular level. This yields a super-stong permanent bond. Plast-aid forms chemical bonds with PVC, ABS, CPVC, Acrylic, Polycarbonate, Styrene, and any kind of plastic that becomes tacky when Plast-aid®'s liquid is applied to it - learn the test.

In a mechanical bond, Plast-aid forms a super-tight grip to porous materials. For example, notice our "quarter and pvc pipe tee" at the top of the page. Plast-aid® has chemically bonded to the PVC tee, and it is mechanically holding the quarter. It can do this because the quarter has enough roughness for it to grab a hold of. In fact, the hold is so strong that the quarter bends when you try and get it out! Plast-aid forms mechanical bonds to materials such as wood, roughened metal, stone (not polished) or any other porous materials.

Will Plast-aid® cure in the presence of water?
Not only will Plast-aid® cure in the presence of water, it will cure under water! We've had many plumbers and pool & spa repair people testify that this stuff even bonds while pipes and fixtures are leaking and dripping with water. Incredible!
