Re: Heating Epoxy??
Posted by RogerJ on Oct 30, 2005
When temperatures are low I have used shop lights, incandescent with funnel shaped reflectors, to pre-heat an area to be glued. Then once the pieces are epoxied, joined, clamped, or screwed in place the heat is removed and the epoxy permitted to cure. If it is too cold I may leave the lamps on but move them back so the area will not out gas but warmer than without any heat. My garage is attatched to the house but has no shared heating so it can get pretty cool out there. Where I live it rarely freezes so I won't claim it is cold. RogerJ
