I need to 'adhese' paper to plastic, but I need the adhesive to be flammable and quick burning, but without producing any ash or too many toxic fumes.

I know this is an absurd question, but does anything like this exist?

Thanks so much

Nitrocellulose(flash paper). Using acetone or something you get a gel. Caution recommended.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your answer, nitrocellulose is my 'paper' layer - will the acetone gel thing still work or will it mess up the nitrocellulose paper? Thanks $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Try dampening the plastic with acetone or the gel. You need to test to get the best way to do it. $\endgroup$
