Epoxy Resin Glue

What is Epoxy Glue?

An epoxy is a two-part adhesive that forms when you mix epoxy resin and hardener. These two substances are stored in different containers and are only mixed together when you are ready for gluing. You can glue using a double syringe and other methods, but always keep a 1:1 mixing ratio. If you do not, the resin will not cross link.

After mixing both components, the pot life will begin. This is the period where the parts will be bonded, but can still be moved and changed. The pot life can range from just a few minutes to a few hours all depending on the glue you use for the process. After the pot life, the glue will need several hours in order to reach maximum strength.

Epoxy, in general, is a highly versatile and very strong material. This makes it great to use for various applications. Epoxy is also a gap-filler, which makes it perfect for reconstructions. On top of all that, the epoxy can be sanded, drilled, and painted. This fact gives it a much wider range of uses than your standard glue.

Common Instructions for Epoxies

Here are some common instructions for using epoxies.

  1. Roughen the surfaces that will be bonded to by using sandpaper or by carefully draw-filling the areas.
  2. Remove any dust, grease, and dirt from the surfaces.
  3. Cut the end tips of the application syringe. Turn the syringe up and depress the syringe slightly, pushing the air bubbles to the top.
  4. On a disposable surface or tray, then push the double plunger to dispense equal parts of the resin and the hardener.
  5. Slightly retract the plunger, wipe the application tip clean, and then replace the cap.
  6. Then quickly mix the resin and the hardener until it is all completely blended. Usually takes 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add a small amount of the glue to the items you are bonding, carefully assemble them, and then press them firmly together. Set and cures for the epoxy will vary, so be sure to check the instructions for the specific type of epoxy resin glue you are using.
  8. Remove any excess epoxy.

How To Remove Epoxy

Epoxy adhesive is made to last. So make sure everything you want away from the epoxy is away from the epoxy, otherwise it might be stuck to it! However, if you do end up with more of a mess than you expected, then you are not stuck with it for life. There are ways to remove the epoxy resin glue. Here are some tips on how to effectively remove epoxy.

Removing Cured Epoxy

If your epoxy has dried and hardened, then you will have to use a more aggressive method. Paint thinner, denatured alcohol, or adhesive remover will help to soften the epoxy. Simply dip the cloth in the solvent and rub it on the epoxy you want to remove. Please note that we highly recommend to avoid skin contact and to work in a well-ventilated area.

Removing Uncured Epoxy

Uncured epoxy is softer, which makes it easier to remove than cured epoxy. Acetone or isopropyl alcohol will work just fine. Simply apply the chemical to a cloth and rub the area until the epoxy resin glue yields.

Removing Epoxy from Skin

If you do get epoxy on your skin, you will want to remove it as soon as possible. If you want a natural approach, vinegar can work. Use the vinegar to saturate a cotton ball and rub the skin until the epoxy softens. If that does not work, then you can also try nail polish remover.
