I'm replacing a damaged furler drum. The mast is Fiberglass and I'm assuming the furler drum is HDPE. What adhesive should be used to make this bond between the furler drum and the mast?

There are many different types of epoxies. Certainly ones that don't adhere to HDPE. Can you elaborate on what Epoxy would be considered ideal for adhesion between the Fiberglass and HDPE. Is there a manufacturer's recommended epoxy?

Thank you,
Eric

The drum is glass-filled nylon. We would be using something like West System G Flex.
