Glue of the Month

Waterweld

This glue will come in handy any time of the year, but we thought it would be worth recommending during these hot summer months because Waterweld will set up in water or even solvents such as gasoline. This leads one to think of Waterweld for endless summer repair jobs. The only drawback we found with Waterweld is that is was not as reliable with some PVC plastics and polypropylenes that so many pools and water tanks are made from. We did find that lightly sanding the plastic increased the bond. But for metals of all sorts, wood, fibreglass and even concrete, this glue really worked.

It is a two part epoxy putty that is very easy to use. It sets up quickly, about 30 minutes,and is water-proof, resistant to temperature changes and chemicals, and is a great gap filler. It is relatively non-toxic, and once cured can be used in the presence of drinking water.

And, as with all J-B products, Waterweld comes in a stylish package and is supported by an excellent website. See also J-B Weld.
