Whilst moving a suitcase I managed to snap off the head of a radiator TRV. It's quite a clean break, leaving the lowest plastic bit of the head still within the knurled ring.

I'll get a new TRV but as a short-term fix I'm looking to glue it back together. Is there a specialist plumbing adhesive for plastic that will cope with the heat passing close to the TRV?

Thanks.
