Hardman five minute epoxy in "Double-Bubble"™ packages
Extra fast-setting epoxy (Hardman Red* or 04001) has an enormous variety of uses. It will bond ceramics, wood, metal, glass, stones, and many plastics and can be used in experimental setups.  Sets quickly enough for makeshift work, holds strongly enough for permanent use**.

Material Safety Data Sheet:

MSDS is available in .pdf (Adobe Acrobat Reader) format via this link.

Surface preparation:  Surfaces to be glued must be free of all traces of oil, grease, and dirt. Metals are best prepared by roughing the surface with fine sandpaper and cleaning with acetone or alcohol before gluing.  Please be advised some surfaces do not degrease quickly and may require extended treatment.  Thorough degreasing is very important.

Cleanup:  Uncured epoxy residue can be removed with isopropyl alcohol.  Once the epoxy is cured it is not considered removable;  don't let it set on anything you don't want permanently glued.

Curing Temperature:  this epoxy cures best at room temperature or slightly above. Do not expose Epoxy 04001 to prolonged temperatures of more than 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

This epoxy takes much longer to set if the temperature is below 60 F.

Safety:   Do not use this or any adhesive to glue objects that could cause injury or endanger someone's safety if the bond were to fail!  Wear protective gloves while handling the uncured epoxy.  Work in a well-ventilated area.  Do not ingest epoxy or get it in the eyes.

Storage: store between 50 and 80 F. The lower end of the temperature range gives slightly better shelf life.  If the epoxy gets too cold it will crystallize.  It must then be thawed at room temperature before mixing.

Color and consistency:  This epoxy dries semi-transparent and with a pale yellow-amber tint. It has the consistency of syrup when first mixed.

Best used for:  Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Epoxy plastics, Stone, Wood, Glass, Porcelain, Leather.

Can also be used for:  Copper, Brass, Tin, Zinc, Acrylic plastics, Phenolic plastics, Urethanes, Fiberglass, Rubber.

Not recommended for:  Polycarbonate, Polystyrene, PVC, ABS, Nylon.

* The "Red" is only a trade designation... this epoxy has no added colorants.

** Use at your own risk.  Risk and responsibility for use falls on the user alone;  we make no guarantees that the bond will be lasting or resistant to failure when used on any particular substrate(s).  User alone is responsible for proper surface preparation, mixing, application, and substrate selection. 

Epoxy bonds generally do not withstand torque or peeling forces.
