Re: epoxy any good?
Posted by Laszlo on Jan 30, 2005
Mac & Howard both have good suggestions, here's my 2 cents:
1. Definitely throw the pumps away if they've been unused for that long with chemicals in them. New ones are cheap and you'll spend at least as much in time, effort and worry, if not directly in cash if you don't.
2. Check that the epoxy has not crystallized in the containers. If it has, or you can't see through the container, simple immerse the epoxy container in 140 degree (fahrenheit) for 3 to 4 hours. That will melt any crystals and rejuvenate the epoxy.
I've used epoxy older than that with no trouble. The hardener was darkened as the guys said, but no problems with the bonds.
Have fun building again,
