Polycarbonate will not solvent weld well with any solvent. Acrylic welds very well with the solvents made for that (Methylene Cloride), which can end up just about as strong as the parent material. Solvent welds on Polycarbonate are harder to do, rarely will come out clear, and are not very strong even if done as good as one can. Solvent welds on Polycarbonate are normally far weaker than the parent material.
I did a lot of solvent welding of Acrylic in industrial settings, but rarely had much luck at all with PC.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
