QUIK-CURE 5 Minute epoxy cures to a slightly flexible consistency. This lack of brittleness allows it to form a lasting bond in areas subjected to high vibration or stress. QUIKCURE can be apply polyester resins. Items bonded with QUIK-CURE can be handled after 15 minutes. Full strength is reached in 1 hour.
QUIK-CURE 5 Minute is ideal when large objects are being bonded and the economics of using CA adhesive just does not quite add up. The specific characteristics of epoxies give them advantages in some applications. All BSI epoxies are mixed with a 50-50 ratio. Any scrap material or paper pad can be used as a mixing surface.
Squeeze out equal length beads of the desired amount of epoxy, then mix together thoroughly with a dowel or scrap piece of material. In cold weather, epoxy takes longer to cure (too cold and usually they never fully cure) and becomes more difficult to get out of the bottle, especially if its less than 1/2 full. The epoxies can be heated in a microwave oven for about 10 seconds so that they flow easier. The heating process, with the caps off, also releases any moisture that can be absorbed by epoxies. Their shelf life, therefore, is virtually unlimited.
