Epoxy for pool filter

I have a S180T sand filter. The flange clamp split and is leaking. It is made from Noryl, a PPE resin.

I have ordered the part and it will be in within a few days. Is there any epoxy/glue that I can use to fix this for a short time that will hold against the pressure and water?

I can also drill a few holes and screw it together but it will really need a strong epoxy/glue to hold and seal it. I remember this type of materiel is tough to glue together but I am hoping someone will have some ideas.

Thanks in advance.

You can try the JB Weld for plastic or a two part epoxy glue.

I have used JB Weld per the above... and Atlas 2 part, EpoxyBond. Both worked fine.

If you're talking about the flange where the valve mounts on top of the tank.... I doubt any glue/epoxy would work. Maybe a big worm gear clamp to squeeze it together.
