In Detail

Epoxy Resin is one of the strongest and most durable adhesives available and suitable for a wide range of applications. Z-Poxy 5 Minute is a quick setting two part epoxy resin giving a clear, tough, permanent bond to wood, metals, fibreglass and many plastics. It has excellent gap filling and shock resistant characteristics in a glue line that doesn't shrink and is resistant to fuel, oil and many chemicals and solvents. The non-reversible chemical set takes place in just five minutes, which in most cases eliminates the need for clamping. Z-Poxy 30 Minute has all the attributes of the five minute version but with the added benefit of a longer open or working time, essential in some assemblies. The slower set also gives the further benefit of an even stronger bond and enables the casting of small components and the making of epoxy putty when compounded. Both packs are 8 fl.oz (4 fl.oz resin; 4 fl.oz hardener). Like most chemical set products they are sensitive to temperature and humidity affecting the setting times and in extreme cases their ability to set. Good working conditions are therefore essential to gain the best results.

Good stuff

First time I have used epoxy with woodworking, so nothing to compare it to. I was a bit put off the price of the West System stuff and feared buying the wrong thing. Anyway the Zpoxy stuff did the trick. I have used it to glue up gappy joints, fill knots and cracks very successfully.

The best approach I found was to be quite liberal then sand it back down. That makes it quite messy so don't bother making your pieces pristine before you glue up. Around joints I used a chisel to scrape off excess after curing fully and it comes up very cleanly. It sands back well and the excess does not stain the wood when you come to applying your finish, unlike PVA.

I definitely recommend warming it up in boiling water as suggested below. It will be much more runny and settle into gaps more quickly, although more likely to drip too. It will shrink and sink down into gaps so you need more than you think.

I used the 30 minute stuff, heating it up gives you a bit more time to work with it. I found it can take about 2 days to fully harden though, and better to do it indoors than in a cold workshop.

If anyone else has some tips it would be useful to hear them!

TIP

This is perfect, however to re enstate the glue, put the individual tubes into hot water for 5 minutes approx, the glue then returns to its origenal state, I have done this many times, I hope you find this useful

Short shelf-life

I agree with D Burton - I have had two batches of the 30 min version and both have gone off before they were half used. It would be more economical if the size of packaging were reduced.

Good but short life

I've used the 5 minute version for some years. It is really good but if, like me, you will only use occasionally, then the trouble is that the 4 Fl.oz bottles are too big and one of the two (the resin I think) goes 'off' ... It's not cheap stuff - this has happened three or four times unfortunately - so despite being good, for an occasional user like me, I'm going to have to use something else that doesn't have a relatively short shelf life.
