Best Adhesive for Flexible Silicone Neon-Like LED Strip

by Jims_Adafruit_07 on Sun Jul 05, 2020 1:22 pm

What adhesive works best for bonding/ sticking Flexible Silicone Neon-Like LED Strip to a clear acrylic sheet as part of a display?

I have already tried various forms of clear silicone, for the reason of wanting to trim an excess off and make the end result look neat, however the silicone doesn't stick/ bond at all to the back of the LED strip. Maybe I'm going about this wrong, however the clear silicone I have already tried doesn't stick at all to the back of the LED strip.

Many Thanks in advance

Not much adheres well to silicone. The best results we've had with the Neopixel silicone sleeves is with Permatex 66B Clear RTV Silicone or Loctite Plastics Bonding System.

Thank you for the suggestions. I eager to give it a try.
Can you let me know how the Flexible Silicone Neon-like LED strip is intended to be used if there is trouble bonding/ sticking it to any material? Or have I possibly purchased the wrong LED product?
Many Thanks
