Putty, Adhesive, Syringe or Silicone?
Do You know which type of J-B Weld Product is best for your job?
With so many adhesive products on the market it can sometimes be difficult for the non-professional to gauge which product you may need for a particular repair. Do you need strength, ease of use, require a quick setting product, or perhaps colour is the number one factor in your decision. And of course, before you even begin with these questions you will need to make sure you are using the correct J-B Weld for the material, and for the job at hand.
At J-B Weld UK we understand this and do our best to provide you with the information you need to find the right J-B Weld product so your project or repair can run as smooth and as simply as possible, whether you are plugging a hole or a small crack, welding two sheets of ply together, or re-attaching the head of your beloved broken statue? So, which type of is best for your project?
As well as products such as our J-B Weld Thread lockers and Radiator Stop Leak, the J-B Weld range comes in four main categories: Putty Sticks, Two Part Epoxy Adhesives and Silicones (Gasket Maker and Sealants).
J-B Weld Epoxy Putty Sticks give you quick, on the spot repairs and are great if you need to plug a small hole or fill a crack.
Epoxy Putty can be applied wet or dry and works great with steel, wood, water resistant, fuel tanks, plastic and more. Once cured you can sand, drill, file machine and even paint.
Two Part Epoxy Adhesives
These J-B Weld two part epoxy adhesives are great if you have a repair that may require two surfaces to be bonded, or to glue that broken off part.
J-B Weld Epoxy Adhesives give you strength and reliability. The range includes options for Wood (WoodWeld), Metal (SteelStik), Marine based repairs (MarineWeld), J-B KwikWeld, (our fast setting version of the J-B Weld two-part epoxy cold weld system that sets in 6 - 25 minutes and cures within 1 - 24 hours), and of course our J-B Weld Original product, the most versatile and strongest J-B weld available, a great all round adhesive.
Introducing J-B Weld Epoxy Syringe. This easy to use syringe makes it simple to dispense and mix, it is easy to use and bonds to most surfaces. Products typically set in minutes and cure within hours.
Epoxy syringes are a great option for hard to reach places and gives you ease of use with clean, tidy results.
The J-B Weld Syringe range are great if you need to make that repair but are not all that confident about mixing the correct ratios of product, or if you need a quick and easy to use adhesive. Our Syringes come in Clear, Quick-setting and plastic bonding varieties, all of which supply the perfect ratio of adhesive for your ease of use.
J-B Weld Silicone Sealant and Adhesives are general purpose sealant adhesives, RTV (Room temperature vulcanised) Silicones designed for sealing and bonding uneven surfaces and great for mechanical assemblies.
Upon curing, which occurs when the product is exposed to the moisture in the air, the silicone forms a tough, long lasting, waterproof seal on most surfaces. It will not shrink or crack, resists weathering, is sensor safe and is great for many household and automotive applications.
