Advisement: Please be aware that PC-Clear will get warm when it cures. How warm it gets depends largely on the amount of resin and hardener mixed. The greater the quantity, the greater the amount of heat generated and potential temperature. Mix on a flat surface or using a static mixer and use caution when applying to heat sensitive objects. Wear gloves and avoid getting on skin or eyes.
Imagine a liquid epoxy that is clear – A liquid epoxy with strength rivaling that of heavy duty paste epoxies – A liquid epoxy that has flexibility and is shatter resistant – A work time of 4 minutes and 1 hour cure time. Imagine NO LONGER!
PC-Clear ™ Epoxy is a medium viscosity liquid epoxy system with greater clarity than other epoxies. This product is excellent for repairs and projects that must be less visible such as art objects or collectibles. PC-Clear™ epoxy is fast curing but allows ample time to apply and position the repair. After curing the epoxy does not become brittle, instead cured PC- Clear™ forms a tough resilient bond. PC-Clear™ can be used on more than just cosmetically critical repairs and in addition it can be used for automotive, construction and facility repairs. Use PC-Clear™ when you are concerned about appearance of your repair and a liquid epoxy is what you are looking for. Work time is about 4 minutes and cures in 1 hour.
Here are just a few specific uses (there are hundreds of other uses):
- Fasten galvanized steel to concrete floor.
- Bond sheet metal to wood or masonry.
- Seal and insulate electrical connections and electronic boards.
- Protect electronic components from vibration and moisture.
- Repair porcelain or sculptures.
- Reattach multiple broken pieces in a vase.

How to prepare a surface for bonding with PC-Clear™ Epoxy
Remove contaminants such as dust, dirt, oil and grime with a solvents such as Denatured Alcohol (ethanol), Acetone, Rubbing Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or Lacquer Thinner. Mild detergent solution in water is also good for removing contaminants.
Use a clean paper towel or rag for wiping. Do not use Mineral Spirits or Paint Thinner for removing contaminants.
Remove rust and loose paint with sandpaper or wire brush. Epoxy typically sticks to most paints. If there is a concern of the paint’s adhesion then remove it with sandpaper, wire brush or paint stripper.
Smooth, glossy and shiny surfaces should be roughened using sandpaper to increase adhesion.
How to clean-up after PC-Clear™ Epoxy application
Clean up mixed epoxy before it cures with paper towels and solvent. Denatured Alcohol (ethanol), Acetone, Rubbing Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or Lacquer Thinner are suitable solvents for removing uncured epoxy.
Cured epoxy can be removed with paint stripper or remover.
Is PC-Clear™ Epoxy different from other clear epoxies?
Some epoxies claim to be clear but they have a strong yellow tint that develops after it cures. PC-Clear™ Epoxy has a very slight hint of yellow that does not increase after curing.
How does PC-Clear™ Epoxy’s strength compare to other epoxies?
PC-Clear Epoxy™ is a strong adhesive with Lap Shear Adhesion strength on steel of 2500 psi.
Is PC-Clear™ Epoxy brittle?
PC-Clear™ Epoxy is slightly flexible and more resilient than other liquid epoxies.
How does outdoor exposure affect cured PC-Clear™?
Ultra violet light will cause cured PC-Clear’s™ appearance to change and may cause yellowing.
What is the best way to mix PC-Clear™?
How you mix PC-Clear™ Epoxy will affect the length of working time. Flat surface mixing spreads the epoxy over an area minimizing the exotherm’s effect on the curing reaction and maximizing the length of work life. Mixing in a container concentrates the exotherm contributing to an increased rate of reaction and decreasing the work life.
Why does PC-Clear™ Epoxy have a strong odor?
The epoxy resin is nearly odorless. The hardener is the smelly part. It has an odor described as smelling like sewer gas or hair treatments. This odor comes from the polymercaptan but goes away upon curing.
Does PC-Clear™ Epoxy self-level?
PC-Clear Epoxy™ is a liquid and is self-leveling.
How many feet of does the PC-Superepoxy® 50 ml cartridge nozzle dispense?

Can PC-Clear™ Epoxy be colored or tinted?
PC-Clear™ Epoxy can be tinted.
Can PC-Clear™ Epoxy 1 ounce dual syringe be used with a static mixer?
Yes, but the static mixer has the same fitting as the PC-Autobond™.
