I bought an older new in the box kit and decided to test the epoxy that came with it before i starting my build. It seemed to harden fine where I coated a scrap of plywood but I tried to glue two pieces of scrap wood together and I was still able to pry them apart with a screwdriver even after 24 hours. My garage is unheated but the furnace is in there so it stays about 60 degrees but may have gotten up to as much as 70 for a few hours during the day when the sun was shining in the windows. Should this stuff have been completely dured in 24 hours at this temp?
The guy i bought the kit from said it had been sitting in his garage for several years. Also the hardner is not clear like the Went System i previously used on my sailboat. It has a slight amber color in the pot but it is not noticeable on the plywood becasue I put some of my left over West System next to it and it looked the same
Is this stuff any good or should i just buy new epoxy?
