Jim, I honestly don't know. I guess you'd have to try it. Fortunately the Devcon is cheap.. but make absolutely certain you're working with a clean surface. Otherwise if it doesn't work, you may blame the plastic when in actuality it didn't work because the surface was fouled. If you try it, let us know if it did.. or didn't work!

According to this product description, Devcon will not bond to polyethylene.

It's my understanding that LDPE plastics can only be repaired by thermal welding.
