Product Description

J-B Weld is The Original Cold Weld two-part epoxy system that provides strong, lasting repairs to metal and multiple surfaces. Mixed at a ratio of 1:1, it forms a permanent bond and can be shaped, tapped, filed, sanded and drilled after curing. At room temperature, J-B Weld sets in 20-25 minutes to a dark grey color. A full cure is reached in 15-24 hours. J-B Weld has a tensile strength of 3960 PSI and sets to a hard bond overnight. It can withstand temperatures up to 550ºF when fully cured.

The bond is clear, VERY strong, waterproof, and hard but flexible.
I followed directions to the "T" and waited a full 24 hours inbetween applications...not working at all very very disappointed.
Will be fixing lots of stuff this winter with Cold Weld now that I know how good it works.

and this is great stuff. some pointers
Epoxy glues have a limited shelf life. Buy yours at a small store where the merchandise doesn't move quickly, or keep it 5 years on the shelf and it won't work well. Don't apply it at temperatures below 60 degrees. Spend at least 2 or 3 minutes mixing it. I use a timer to be sure. Surface preparation is the key. It must be completely grease free. I use naptha (lighter fluid) alcohol, and acetone in that order. The surface MUST be rough. I use a file,very rough (#40 or #60) sandpaper or a sharp Exacto blade to make multiple cross hatch cuts- this will even work on most steels. Apply the mix carefully, put the pieces together so they don't move for at least 8 hours.
Do all that and the bond is very strong.

Verified Purchase
When you need a strong rigid workable (e.g. sandable and/or paintable surface) adhesive, particularly for use on metal or hard plastic, epoxy is usually the best choice. Most epoxies dry with little running or shrinkage, and so are good for filling gaps. The major drawback to epoxies is that they consist of two parts (resin and hardener) which must be mixed in small batches, and then applied with your own applicator (e.g., a toothpick or popsicle stick). Some are packaged in a dual-syringe--but that is not an adequate solution, because the components must still be manually mixed in order harden to maximum strength.

JB-Weld is a very strong epoxy cement. JB-Weld is the cement/glue of choice when joining metal parts or filling holes in metals. Otherwise, ordinary epoxy cement or other types of cements/glues are usually better choices. Some other reviewers have complained that the descriptive name "weld" is inappropriate---to some extent that's true. JB Weld can do some jobs welding can't. Conversely some simple welding jobs like joining two thin metal rods at right angles are difficult with JB Weld.

General Principles: Although JB WELD makes an excellent filler---and can even be used to cast small parts, it is not remotely as strong as real metal used this way. Whenever possible, use JB WELD as an adhesive---a very thin layer of JB WELD holding two pieces of metal together. Always reinforce with metal pieces when possible. For example, rather than building up a massive flange with JB Weld, you might be able to use scrap peice of metal to form most of the flange, held in place with JB Weld. The greater the relative surface area of contact, the strong the bond will be.

I think little elaboration is necessary after seeing other good reviews.
I have used this stuff over 20 years, probably gone through a half dozen of the industrial size packs. Saved many things from the dumpster by fixing them instead. Love the water cleanup and non toxic thing, I usually end up wearing stuff like liquid nails and PL construction adhesive which removes skin, I can be a big happy mess with JB weld and wash it right off me and my tools. In short, no credible home handyman OR professional should be without this around.
Like another user I fixed a radiator with it, a neighbor's nissan 240sx. He rear ended some guy and broke the top, about a 3" long fissure along the base of the fill spout (the plastic part) 2 years later when he moved to ohio and drove it the 1500 miles there it still hadn't leaked a drop.
I remember the packages in the old days used to have these outrageous testimonials like "I fixed the axle of my 10 ton farm tractor" and at first I'm all "get outta here, how is that possible?" but with proper prep,(roughing up to give it something to latch onto) cleaning, thorough and accurate mixture (if you err it's probably better to be light in the hardener not heavy) and good long cure time (I give it twice the max if possible and never play with it while it's drying) I don't think those claims were at all absurd any more.
If you don't have JB weld you aren't fixing things as good as those of us that do. Can I say that?

Fun tip: if JB weld is running away from where you want it to be in warm weather after applying, you can use a strong (like rare earth) magnet to draw it back toward where you like. Or take your magnet and hold it under a piece of aluminum plate and move it around just for giggles. It's steel!

I've used JB Weld to repair countless numbers of things over the years... My car's alternator (as pictured), my car's door handle, the broken cover of a USB flash drive, a friend's earring post, broken toys, and various other things around the house & garage... The list goes on and on. I find the two keys to a solid bond to be: (1) roughing up the surface with emery cloth or a wire brush and then (2) cleaning the surface with isopropyl alcohol to remove any remaining dirt or oil left by your hands... Make sure the alcohol will not attack whatever you are trying to clean before using it and make sure the surfaces are completely dry before applying the JB Weld. A trick I learned from a user group forum is that, by using a hair dryer from a slight distance to warm it when applying, the JB Weld will flow for a smooth surface and even coverage. (Just don't melt, burn, overheat, or ignite whatever you're trying to repair by getting it too hot with the hair dryer!) In my experience, heating it slightly has not resulted in any loss of strength once cured. JB Weld may run after applying so I recommend checking it after several minutes or an hour to make sure that it has not run onto a surface where you don't want it. Additionally, it's a good idea to brace, tape, clamp, or otherwise immobilize whatever you are bonding together and leave it that way for the full 24 hours until it is completely cured. This is a great product!... Just be patient and don't apply stress to a joint until 24 hours have passed.

05/06/2010 Edit: Although I haven't had problems in the past using isopropyl alcohol to clean my bonding surfaces, prior to applying J-B Weld products, it is worth noting that the J-B Weld FAQ recommends NOT using alcohol because of it leaving a "petroleum residue". They recommend cleaning with acetone or lacquer thinner instead.
