: Hi Terry,

: RE: plumbing material question...

: It was suggested to me to use pipe joint compound & a piece of abs plastic to repair/mend a 7-inch crack in a roof top automobile cargo carrier. (A) Is abs available in flat lengths/strips? If so, where can it be purchased? (B)Would pipe joint compound be the best material adhesive to mend/repair abs? Thanks!

ABS is glued using a solvent glue.
Pipe joint compound is considered a thread sealant. It's non-sticking.
The ABS I use comes as pipe, I haven't seen flat strips. They may make them, but not for plumbing.
This repair is for a roof rack? I hope it doesn't have to carry much weight.
