Re: Hardware Store Epoxy?
This is a huge misconception ...
Standard hardware store epoxy like the Devcon sold by Ace has a tensile strength of 1,500psi. Which is pretty strong. But compare it to West System with a tensile strength of 7,900psi, or roughly 5 times stronger.
Do you have any objective, third-party test results that prove that?
I am not so gullible to accept what a salesman or a manufacturer claims to be true.
