Gluing With Epoxy - Things About Epoxy Glue You Need To Know

 

Epoxies make outstanding glues but you cannot use them the way you use 'ordinary' glues.

A good glue, epoxy or otherwise, is thick enough to stay in place.

So, to glue with epoxy you should use a thickened epoxy. Add thickeners to regular thin epoxy, or simply use an epoxy paste or putty (such as the Kevlar (tm) and feldspar ceramic thickened Wet Dry 700 epoxy - which can even be applied and used underwater or on wet surfaces).

With epoxies it is important you don't clamp tightly or you will squeeze all the epoxy out and the bond will fail. This is different from other types of glue which should be clamped tightly. I know one person that sprinkles a little sand or ground walnut shell into the epoxy he uses for sanding. The sand provides a tiny gap and prevents all the epoxy from being squeezed out should he over-clamp the two surfaces he is epoxy gluing.

Also note that while epoxies may feel dry after a full hours, full adhesion takes at least 48 hours and full cure about a week. Don't "test" your epoxy glue joint for at least several days after gluing.

Hi, I train spray painters in Queensland Australia the technical aspects of Polyurethane paint. However some people just can’t get the difference of the two major types. Polyester vs Acrylic. I would like to use your excellent discussion paper in my training as an unbiased view and give credit to author Paul Oman and your company. http://www.epoxyproducts.com/lpu.html
