Please read the Health & Safety warning on the back of the cardboard pack. This stuff can irritate the skin, leading to dermatitis and who-knows what else. It also gives off smelly fumes that you really don't want in the house! Use it sensibly in a well-ventilated area. Wear polythene gloves and eye protection.
When you've dispensed the amount you need, press the cap into place to seal the nozzles. It fits only one way round so that you never put resin in contact with hardener.
Mix equal amounts of resin and hardener. To speed up hardening or make the glue less viscous (especially in winter) heat it gently with a hair dryer (or a paint stripper on lowest setting and held well away from the mixture). Heating causes the mixture to give off fumes so please do this only in a very well ventilated area.
Normal working time is around ten minutes - but we find it stays 'runny' for quite a time and then, all of a sudden it goes like chewing gum and then sets hard - all within about three minutes of starting to 'go off'!
If you mix a small amount it stays runny for longer - mix a tablespoonful of each and it goes off quickly because the exothermic reaction releases more heat which cures it faster.
Excess resin can be wiped off with a suitable cloth (which should be disposed of safely). Uncured resin, hardener or mix can be washed off skin with warm soapy water. Once the mix has hardened, it is extremely difficult to remove!
After twenty minutes the resin is still slightly soft and can be cut through with a sharp knife. After an hour the resin has set hard and can be sanded smooth if required.
Uses for 151 Epoxy
Glues most glass, metal, china, wood, fibreglass and many plastics. When bonding absorbent materials, apply glue to both surfaces. Although 151 Epoxy can tolerate oily surfaces quite well, we advise degreasing first when possible. 151 Epoxy can be bulked out with equal parts of talcum powder if more bulk is required for filling cracks.
- Filling small cracks (see above)
- Broken LNB brackets
- Boat building and repair
- Broken crockery
- Furniture making and repair
