I've been researching glues for securing inserts in plastic items. I lucked upon this online guide.

It appears that Amazing Goop Automotive adhesive is the "go to" glue for plastics. It will bond polyethylene and polycarbonate plastics, glass and metal among others. It is clear and stated to be waterproof!

Thanks Wravyn,

Have you used it on PETE (polyethylene)? That seems to be the one plastic that can be difficult.

It is not recommended for polyethylene or polypropylene. Had I understood that's what you were wanting to use it with, I would not have brought it up. My apologies.

No problem Wrayvn. I mentioned the Amazing Goop as it had a check-mark for PC and PETE plastics! I just bought a tube of the Goop at Pep Boy's and have glued a polyethylene insert (part of a coke bottle) to a PC (polycarbonate) exterior container. It also claims to be water proof -- so it met all of the requirements. I'll know in 24 hours if its a success!
