When something breaks, it's easiest just to grab that bottle of glue from your junk drawer and hope it will fix whatever needs repair. But, have you ever thought about how an adhesive works, or why you should choose one type over another?
We've created a simple chart to help you compare the different adhesive bonding systems out there. You'll quickly see how the strength of our J-B Weld two-part epoxy products makes them stand apart from all the rest.
J-B Weld, known as "The Original Cold Weld," was developed as an alternative to traditional torch welding. It's designed to be extremely effective in even the harshest environments. Because it's a two-component (or 2k) epoxy system, it uses reactive chemistry to create the strongest bond possible. Think of it as having a cross-woven pattern that provides extra strength, much like rebar does to reinforce cement structures. And once it sets, it's tougher than steel. All of our epoxy products are based on this same chemistry, making them the best choice for any project you need to tackle. Plus they're extremely easy to use, whether you choose the original twin tubes, the putty sticks, or the syringes.
Every adhesive project requires good preparation to be successful. You can ensure J-B Weld will perform to its maximum when you prepare and use it according to the package instructions. You'll also want to prep the area to be repaired. For best results, use a detergent or degreaser to first clean the surface. Then roughen it with a file or coarse sandpaper. This will help create a successful and long-lasting bond.
Just the right consistency and bonding capabilities I was looking for. My project was adhering a palm frond to a paper mache object.

Since the epoxy was 2-part putty, it was easy get the epoxy to penetrate the PVC pipe in the cut area and get a good seal. It sealed and I have been monitoring the repaired area for almost a month - absolutely no signs any moisture leakage now!

I like this glue, because it adheres to most anything; very versatile. I use it as pimer to add shoe GOO to build up heels of my hiking boots--really helps!
