Tyre Bonding

Post by John Hill » Mon Nov 09, 2015 10:24 am

About to start and wondered if anyone has used the Star Cyno on tyres yet?
Or which Araldite is best.

I use 24 hour Araldite (proper one not cheapy) and all my tyres have been through mud, water (I am sure that Cyno doesn't like water) and a lot of hours of running and I have never had one come off yet. You have to make sure to rough up the inside surface of the rubber tyre as well as the wheel.

Loctite 480 is the stuff

If using cyanoacrylate type glues, get the 'rubber toughened' variety. Loctite 480 as mentioned, or Zap-RT, etc would be the best. Otherwise a slow cure high strength epoxy like the Araldite (sometimes called 24hr or Super Strength) that Dennis mentioned would be good as well. The thin or even some thick cyano glues tend to just flake or loosen easily when running.

Thanks everyone, I think we will stick with the tried and tested stuff, probably loctite 480.
