Araldite for Arts and Crafts
Araldite on the side of the angels
Keen gardener Roddy Clenaghan noticed his resident angel had apparently suffered a crash landing - result, one broken wing.
Just hours later the cherubic guardian was back on duty, courtesy of Araldite Standard adhesive.
Araldite® Standard is one of the brands trademark high strength epoxy products. With good gap filling properties and a temperature tolerance of -30 oC to 65oC it's ideal for this job.
Here's how the repair was made.
Brush loose particles and dirt off both parts to be bonded.
Araldite® Standard packaging is eco-friendly and easy to use - just slip the blister free of its backing card
The double-barrelled syringe pack has some smart features; break off the cap and just one plunger delivers equal amounts of resin and hardener.
There is an integral re-closure cap to keep the adhesive in good condition and a snap-off mixing spatula
Resin and hardener are thoroughly mixed in seconds
Araldite® Standard was applied to both surfaces and the wing then attached using firm pressure for about 30 seconds.
Maximum bond strength is achieved in 14 hours - and the angel is restored to glory.
