About This Item

Gap-filling epoxies for permanent bonds. Our high-strength 2-part adhesives are activated when their resin and hardener components are mixed in equal parts.

Each 4-ounce set has two 2-ounce bottles, ready for mixing.

Fast-setting mixture has 5-minute working time. Full bond strength in one hour.

Slow-setting mixture allows 20 minute working time. Full bond strength in 8 hours, for a rigid waterproof joint.

Slow-setting black mixture is great for inlaying ebony fingerboards. 20 minute working time. Wait 3 days before sanding.

Note: With all epoxies, the slower the setting time, the stronger the bond.

Use adequate ventilation and avoid skin and eye contact.

Keep out of the reach of children.

Coloring epoxy for guitar inlays

A little bit of glue hides imperfections... Dan Erlewine personalizes a fretboard with the customer's name in pearl: "Hoss."

Great stuff

Although my purpose for the item purchased was totally unrelated to the purpose(s) for which the product is designed, it nonetheless did the job as perfectly as I could have wanted.

Great for Under Pickguard Body Fill

By

I used this to fill in the voids on a bad drill and chisel job for a Fender Strat body. It hardened quickly and left nice clean surfaces after routing. This left a smooth surface for applying copper shielding. I found that this stuff dried almost glass hard when used. Maybe not the original purpose for this product but it certainly worked better than hoped.

Does not cure hard

I've bought two batches of the slow setting clear epoxy over the last few years. The first batch I used for inlays and it worked well. I then tried it to glue in carbon fiber rods in a neck. It stays soft and flexible no matter how long it is allowed to cure. I thought I might have a bad batch so I bought more on my next order. Same problem. I carefully measure out equal amounts using a digital postage scale in grams and mix it thoroughly. I'm very disappointed in the quality. Stew Mac should stop selling this stuff.

Clear Epoxy

Wait up to 3 days before you start sanding or grinding away at it. I found out the hard way, then accidentally found a little "info box" in one of the previous catalogs saying to give it a few days to harden up. The bottle says 8 hours, so I gave it 24 and that wasn't enough. Somebody needs to get there directions straight, but the product works if you give it time and it really doesn't take much. I will buy more when my supply is gone.

Slow Setting Black Epoxy for inlay work

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased the Slow Setting Back epoxy on the chance it would work against a light colored wood. I was inlaying some abalone into some yellow heart. I tested it first on a scrap of wood. I was very pleased with the results so I proceeded to use it to fill the voids once the abalone was glued in place. This product will black out the background when used where it is less then .050 thick. I would highly recommend this product for this use.

Use only for fill

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This glue is not a good choice for anything but using as fill. I have tried several times unsuccessfully to use it for other purposes, I.E. gluing wood joints, and it has failed miserably every time. I would recommend staying away from this product.

Meh...

By

Works well, but the black part has turned into a paste, making it impossible to squeeze out. still mixes with clear part so I don't plan on purchasing more.
