What does cement not stick to?

Cement sticks very well to plastic, or at least Portland cement concrete does. Leave a little residue in a plastic paint bucket, on a plastic tool handle, or on any other plastic surface, and try to get it off a few days later.

Can you glue concrete back together?

Do not try to use concrete to glue the pieces back together – it won't work, so don't waste your time. Once you have the epoxy glue correctly mixed, simply apply it to the damaged areas, clamping them together until the glue is completely dry.

Does Gorilla Glue work on vinyl?

No you cannot. Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane glue used on wood, stone, foam, metal, ceramic, glass and other materials according to the company. If this company's other products can be judged by the quality of its original glue, I wouldn't trust them either. There are actual kits sold to patch vinyl air mattresses.
