    Specifically, a glue that can bond plastic and withstand heavy water.

    The plastic thing in dishwasher that you put the tablet in has broken, it's the bit the clasp goes over so can't just ignore it. See photo.

    Anyway tried some multi purpose glue I had lying about, didn't work, then tried super glue, didn't work. Well both worked until they'd been through a dishwasher cycle.

    Can anybody reccomend a glue up to the job?

    Put the tablet in the cutlery basket?

    Yeah that could work couldn't it. Still, for once I have the bit that broke off so would quite like to actually fix it

    I had the same issue with a previous dishwasher. Tried various glues. None worked for long.

    Sugru might be worth a shot. They claim it's dishwasher-proof. Frequently Asked Questions | Sugru

    I can't quite figure out what I'm looking at, but is there room to laminate another sheet of plastic or metal ?

    I've had moderate success with superglue, then roughing the surface and using epoxy over silk screen (voile) as reinforcement.

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    epoxy resin or epoxy glue eg araldite (not sealant, it doesn't act as a glue unless under pressure whilst it cures and isn't 'structural' even then)

    Cid 嗯嗯

    Epoxy (Araldite easiest to find in the uk), but tbh no glue is well suited to a joint like that. Especially in an environment like a dishwasher. New component as per mauvais would be best.

    I'd probably use epoxy, but reinforce both side of the join with thin layers of polypropylene (because i have that lying around).

    Q Bond. It's a powder, then you drop the liquid on. Did my fairing panels on motorbike about 5 years ago and it's still okay.

    Pleasantly surprised to find this thread in suburban, not in drugs.
