Default Epo-Grip - Good stuff

Last year some time Iwas sent this Epoxy that is a little different than your typical Epoxies, Ididn't really have a chance to use it on anything until recently.

Iused to it to repair a motor box and a gear plate on a Composite-ARFand Igotta say, the stuff works great!


Epo-Grip Clear Paste
Clear Paste is a high strength epoxy fast set paste adhesive providing additional control in gluing applications. Clear Paste’s semi sag consistency paste allows for less mess and cleanup during gluing. Normal cure time 7-10 minutes at standard room temperatures.
Product Hobby Uses:
    [*]

    General purpose gluing

    [/list]
    [*]
    Fuel proofing
    [*]
    Field repairs
    [/list]

Epo-Grip #30 Paste (Slow Set)

#30 Paste is a high strength slow set epoxy adhesive that provides the hobbyist complete control when gluing. #30 is a non-sag adhesive that stays right where you put it easily worked in vertical or inverted applications. Normally cures in 4-6 hours allowing ample working time for detailed work and extra strength. Easily colored, accepts micro-balloons where filling or extra weight is an issue. #30 is fuel and waterproof once cured.



Product Hobby Uses:

    [*]

    Used were high strength is required

    [*]

    Bonding non porous materials

    [*]

    Making Filets

    [*]

    Gluing gear areas

    [/list]
Epo-Grip Model Matrix
Model Matrix is a fiber reinforced fast set adhesive designed for gluing ABS plastic and fiberglass. Model Matrix similar to Clear Paste but contains milled fiberglass strands for additional strength often required on composite model aircraft. Normal cure at standard room temperature 7-10 minutes.

Looks good Jake.  Is it difficult to get  accurate/equal parts of 'A' & 'B' ?  Just curious because of the type of jar the parts are contained in.

Not at all and its not critical. 



Plus its like vasaline, stick it somewhere and it stays put w/o running.



You can coat a bolt with WD40, put it in a hole the wet epoxy, when it dries its just like its tapped and its just as strong as anything else you might thread a bolt into.

I only eye'd the mixing - I did have an increased drying time on the slow set stuff, but the other stuff worked fine. It's so thick I think it might be hard to dispense any other way.



I can tell you I put the slow set to the test on a motor box repair that went in again extremely hard and while the motor box did seperate again slightly I was shocked to see how well it held together.
