Loctite Epoxy Instant Mix 5 Minute is a two-part adhesive consisting of an epoxy resin and a hardener. When mixed in equal volumes, the resin and hardener react to produce a tough, rigid, high strength bond, which starts to set in 5 minutes and reaches handling strength in 1 hour. The static mix nozzle delivers a uniform mixture of resin and hardener every time. It can be used as an adhesive for a wide range of materials or as a versatile filler for gap bonding, surface repairs and laminating. Loctite Epoxy Instant Mix 5 Minute does not shrink and is resistant to water and most common solvents. It can be tinted with earth pigments, cement or sand for color matching and can be sanded and drilled.
I bought this to patch up two gaps in my watering can where the body meets the spout and handle. It sealed the gaps completely and stopped the water leakage! For my small project, there was unfortunately lots of leftover, wasted product. Of the two mixing tips, I used less than a quarter of one tip. Due to the nature of epoxy, partially used tips can't be saved for later. I wish the project came with multiple, smaller mixing tips instead of 2 larger tips to minimize waste.
I tried to use 3 of the kits I purchased. All the same the epoxy turns white and becomes unusable before it hits the end of the mixing tip. I will bemail returning them all. I use 300+ kits a year for 7 years and this is my first bad experience with loctite.
