          A:  I don't think so. This product was developed to be used in concrete or masonry applications to hold threaded anchors or rebar. Outside of that application I don't think this would hold your materials together.

          by|May 13, 2021

          A:  It is not a sealant. Once it hardens Epoxy becomes like steel and would not be able to flex with the Poly sheet. You might want to use something like Lexel (by Sashco) sealant.

          Answer This Question

          A:  We list gel and cure time, but it depends on the base material temperature. Please see the Cure Schedule at the following link for complete details: http://embed.widencdn.net/pdf/plus/ssttoolbox/vnvxsqdo1q/C-A-2021-p031-043.pdf. Thank you!

            A:  AlamedaMarc, the epoxy set time can be difficult to define since it is determined by the temperature of the material. The mixing flow tube is how the material is conditioned and combined and the warmer the temperature of the epoxy the faster the chemical action. The temp of the fastened materials and ambient temp will determine the set time, warmer temp-- faster set.... colder temp-- slower set times.

              Q:Can this be used on the roof where there is a crack to fill in between two concrete structures jointed together to stop leaks?
              by|Jun 28, 2020
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Epoxy dries to a very hard state that will not flex. Therefore I would not use epoxy to fill a crack in concrete. If you just want to seal the crack and there is no need for structural enforcement I would use exterior caulking. Does water stand on this crack for extended time? How much movement does the crack receive? A polyurethane sealant might fit your needs, e.g. 3M 5200 or White Lightning W42200010.

              A:  No, I would not recommend it. This product sets up hard and is meant for anchoring rebar or other fasteners. For your needs I'd recommend a flexible concrete filter like truebond or the Quikrete linked below.: Quikrete 1 Qt. Concrete Crack Sealant https://www.homedepot.com/p/Quikrete-1-Qt-Concrete-Crack-Sealant-864000/100318507 SKU# 100318507

                  Q:Is this Epoxy paintable?
                  by|Apr 4, 2020
                  1 Answer
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Once cured, the material that sits on the surface of the concrete can be painted. The surface needs to be lightly sanded or a high quality primer should be used. It’s actually best if you do both. Thank you!

                    Q:Can this epoxy be drilled and screwed ?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  It can be drilled after it sets. But if you are planning to insert a fastener in it, you're better off embedding it in the epoxy before it hardens.
