GLue-Adhesive-Sticky Stuff

A bit off topic.
It's about glues, we all use them and have our favorites for different purposes, some work better than others.
With metal detectors you may need a few different glues since a detectors has different material sufaces
that may need a repair one day.

What prompted this post was a question I had about an old favorite PC-7 that I ran out of years ago and spotted at our local hardware store yesterday.
For a long time now I have used JB Weld as a replacement. Mind you I have never had a PC-7 joint fail, did have a JB Weld or two fail to my amazement.
Which is better PC-7 or JB Weld?  

PC-7 is like a thicker paste and JB is thinner and will run. In the past a bit of Acetone would thin the PC-7 to make it a bit more manageable for certain situations.

I came across a knife makers forum that took those two glues and many other popular ones and put them to the test.
It's a long running post with a lot of good information which many will find interesting.

There is one other brand of industrial glues that has superb properties that are highly regarded. http://www.belzona.com/en/products.aspx

Nokta Impact, Deteknix Quest Pro,Teknetics Mark 1
Self built Mirage PI's --- they work great!!

Sven,
Great post, I think everyone needs a good glue sometimes. I think we all know the superglue is not very useful for most applications. Lol. I also think J B weld was better when it took 48hours to fully cure. Don't think its the same anymore. I know the 5 min cure stuff is not as good. (Opinion) That PC 7 seems like some good stuff. Thanks for sharing link, and test were well done.

I only knew about JB Weld, never even heard of PC-7. While I don't do much gluing, I'll have to remember this for future use. Thanks, Sven Yes
