Choosing the Perfect J-B Weld Product


How Did J-B Weld Change Adhesives?

How Did J-B Weld Change Adhesives?

J-B Weld’s claim to fame came over 50 years ago now, as they developed the world’s first epoxy adhesive in conjunction with a chemistry expert from Texas A&M University. As the first proper cold-welding product, it revolutionised the way people carried out repairs on their cars and homes, particularly in tricky areas where welding simply wasn’t practical.

J-B Weld’s products are popular for the exact same reason today, and now they’re a truly global force in the world of sealants, adhesives and the epoxy products they continue to pioneer.

J-B Weld sealants and epoxies have a massive range of applications, but there’s a reason their range has expanded so much from the very first J-B Weld epoxy. Make sure you choose the perfect product for the job at hand, and you’ll have the very best piece of mind.

APPLICATION

  • Epoxies and sealants all need to be mixed in the same ratio, but have different forms of application to meet different uses
  • Most standard products come as two tubes that can be mixed and applied yourself
  • Syringes also available for more controlled application, while mixable, workable putties are great for repairs in wood and metal

STRENGTH & HEAT RESISTANCE

  • Most epoxies and sealants have their strength rating measured in PSI, and a temperature rating
  • Automotive/metal epoxies generally have the highest torsional strength to resist the pressures created in your car, and more heat resistance

MATERIAL

  • J-B Weld’s epoxy and sealant range has developed to be used with specialised materials
  • Certain products are made to work in marine applications, plumbing, and effectively bond with wood and different types of plastics
  • Choosing the right bond will give you the best chance of sealing your desired surface from water, dirt and petroleum
