Re: Not to worry

I am new to this hobby, so I don't speak from experience, unlike many of the others here. But here goes, just from what I've read:
One possible misconception here may be that cured epoxy is attacked by weak acids like vinegar. It isn't.
You may be thinking of uncured epoxy or its two parts. Unlike the cured stuff, they are soluble in weak acids and organic solvents.
The cured stuff, on the other hand, is remarkably inert chemically. Surgeons use it when they need something strong that has to stay in your body for a lifetime without reacting with anything.
