Question from an Auto Enthusiast: “My ’52 Chevy AD has what is likely the common “3 cracks” all the way around each spoke of the wheel, next to the hub around the horn button. Is this fixable? I’d like to keep as much of the original as possible.” ~ Mike Continue reading
The internet is riddled with questions from ladies and gents who have had their epoxy repairs go awry. The time it actually takes for a putty or paste epoxy to set and harden – adequately – seems to be a great mystery, and is never as “cut and dry” as what the label says when you start out on your mission. So what to do?
PC-Products™ has announced the launch of their first ever true glue. PC-Universal™ High Performance glue is a white glue that dries clear.
We have been watching possibilities and openings in the marketplace for a number of years. With heavier regulations coming into play with regulatory issues with the polyurethane type glues, PC has decided to enter the market with a high solids, non-toxic , ECO-Friendly concentrated glue with superior strength. This product touts 1700 psi bond strength (wood to wood), compared with the 800-900 psi capabilities of polyurethane glues.
Unlike the polyurethane glues, PC-Universal contains no isocyanates and will not foam. It is truly a universal glue, and there is no need to have a specialty wood glue since this will do it all! Since it is concentrated, the glue can be diluted with water for economy where strength is not an issue such as arts and crafts. The glue dries in about 1 hour and can be used even on vertical surfaces. The unique formulation also allows some unique packaging options. The Universal glue will be available in a 10.3 oz. cartridge as well as 4 oz., 8 oz., 1-gallon and 5-gallon packages.
PC-Universal glue will be available to the market in March. Now, you can Fix ALL Your Things with PC-Products®.

So let’s chat a bit about the gear and products you may need to safely and effectively complete your chosen DIY epoxy project! Continue reading
