The instructions on the packet would be a good place to start :rolleyes:

Generally its as easy as mix both parts 1:1, usually best to mix it on some scrap plastic. Then depending on the surface type leave it to react a bit or straight apply it and hold the two pieces together while it dries.

With epoxies, exact measuring, and through mixing are VERY important.
have everything ready to go, mask off anything you don't want epoxied (the stuff is sticky and easily gets everywhere :roll: ) plenty of fresh air is a good idea.
dust masks, eye protection for sanding is a must.

Thanks for the info. I'm trying to find a little bit to test now, but I can't find any locally. Any recommendations on where the best place to get some online is? Thanks.
