  • Helmet glue

    Hi all i got a new helmet today yay!

    It's a KBC (dunno what model. maybe airboure edition or something?). Just a cheapie nothing flash. But the ends of the top air vent are slightly sticking up off the helmet.

    I know not to use any adhesives which would eat the plastic but can someone recommend me a glue like product to stick the ends down that wont destroy my new helmet?




    Thanks for your time,

        Take it back.

        Cheap helmets are made from injection moulded poly carbonate. The best way to glue involves dissolving the plastic to a degree.

        Hot glue gun?? Prob be ok. But no way would I be trusting my helmet full stop - take it back!!!

            Araldite would be fine, its a resin rather than a acetone mix that will dissolve.
