Many Uses of J-B Weld, But is DevCon is better?

I have used J-B Weld for quite a few years.  It is to super glue what super glue is to Elmers glue.  Just awesome.  There area number of other two-part epoxy products available, but quite frankly I’d never found any to be the equal of J-B Weld.  It is the duct tape of the epoxy world, but then I found DevCon’s line of products.

For comparison, here’s what JB-Weld says about their product:

  • Tensile Strength: 3960
  • Adhesion: 1800
  • Flex Strength: 7320
  • Tensile Lap Shear: 1040
  • Shrinkage: 0.00%
  • Resistant to: 500° F


Seriously, just look at some of these ridiculous numbers from DevCon’s products:



I can’t wait for something to break around the house, because I’m dying to put some of this stuff to the test…
