This epoxy putty by j-b weld is exactly what i neededi had a metal art piece that crashed and the panels sprang apart with nothing to hold them back together. 5 minutes flat this putty heldafter 15 totally mended.
Yup does the job very well; but you need to kneed it well; i did it by rolling and mashing it in my palms and it is sticky. You have to work fast it sets fast.
Very impressed with this stuff. I was looking for something to repair some broken landscape lights and ran across this when i was searching for epoxies to try. The fact that you can mold it to where you want it, versus dealing with runny liquid, was a huge plus. I was skeptical, and when kneading it to mix it and putting into place, it was very pliable, like play-doh. I didn’t think it would hold. A few minutes later it was rock solid and worked like a charm. And i still have a ton left. This is going to be a go-to solution from now on.
In my experience this product takes far longer than 24 hours to set. Perhaps it was me, i applied it pretty thickly. It seems to be a workable way to keep my damaged metal chairs in play until i can buy better so, for $7. It’s not hard to use and is fine for a stop-gap.
I used this to repair a metal headboard. Vertical poles had popped their welds at the base. I simply built up around the base of each pole with this material. It didn’t adhere as much as i thought it might, but that’s ok for my situation. The material bonded to the base and dried hard, so the pole still wiggles but is not going to pop out.
I bought this to repair the top of a metal outdoor table that was coming away from the frame. I handled as instructed and placed 3 pieces at about 3′ intervals, then used clamps and left for a few days. It seemed to be holding well, but after a couple weeks, the ‘welds’ came apart. I could not really get to the areas in questions to clean or rough them up, so in fairness, this might work if you can properly prepare your metal surfaces.
- I make sure to keep this in stock!
- Works great but have everything clean and ready before mixing
- Not for me, but maybe for you.
I love that the epoxy is more of a putty and it very easy to work with. In the past i have used the 2 part goopy stuff in tubes that needs to be mixed. This is much easier to work with and can be applied more of a clay than a thick liquid like the counterpart product. This also seems to have a bit more resistance to cracking over time. I had to repair some outdoor lights and an indoor lampshade multiple times over the years using the 2 part jb weld. Since i tried this product i haven’t had to fix them again. It is much easier to apply and can ensure you get the proper coverage and ensure it is fixed well.
I keep it on hand for a variety of things – mostly related to my houdini pit bull. I put a little on the swivel clasps so she can’t open them. I used it to repair a hurricane tie out that broke on one side while my grandson was hammering it in. Worked great with not a problem. Easy to use and store for emergency repairs.
I broke a leg off my grandmother’s 1940’s wrought iron outdoor side table and was sick about it. Before tossing it in the trash, i decided to try a j-b weld steelstik. It was a clean straight across break (i had dropped the table too hard on cement). I thoroughly washed and sandpapered the leg section. You have to work quick with this. I decided to do 1/2 at a time, about 1′ of putty for each side. I had my doubts it would hold at first, i physically had to hold the leg joined together for around 10 minutes. Then i let it cure for 60 minutes and did the other half. So thrilled that this works. I will have to paint the table to hide the gray but the table’s been painted many times throughout the years.
Easy to mix and use, and the unused portion remains viable for future uses (just cut off the amount you plan to use, and re-seal the remainder for later). Used it to help anchor and buttress a shroud we’d jury-rigged for a photo-cell to control a porch light. Needed to shade the cell from the light of the fixture, and found a plastic half-tube that might work. But, how to anchor it to the metal base of the porch light?.
How come i didnt know about this sooner. This the best quick fix for anything that can be mended on surface. Not ideal for joining things flush. You got about 2 mins to get your job done. Please plan ahead before cutting the correct amount. It always ends up being more than what you needed. Have a backup plan to put rest of mixed one on somthing. Or make a ball or something for fishing weights.

Excellent if used for the intended purpose. I have been using j-b weld products for over 30 years. It has been my experience that the strength will be proportionate to the length of time it takes the product to cure. The slower the take, the stronger the result. This is a perfect epoxy combination for quick repairs that do not require a tremendous amount of strength. It is also adequate to repair a part for which a more liquidish compound would not be suitable. The mixed putty hardens quite fast and you need to proceed rapidly.
I sealed my exhaust with this and boy did it hold. I’ll have to put another layer on after the winter but it far exceeded my expectations. Since i find this stuff, i’ve been looking to seal just about anything i can, couldn’t find much but it fixed my father’s wine tank with ease.
Recently saved me on a dirt bike trip. One of my side covers developed a thin crack and i thought i was going to have to scrap the trip but i pulled this stuff out while my bike was still in the truck and did a quick on site repair that held flawlessly. I prepped the area with some gritty sand paper and cleaned the area really well with contact cleaner immediately before firmly pressing this stuff over the crack and the surrounding area. Patch is still holding and so i’m just going to leave it instead of buying a new cover. I also used it to repair a part on the frame where the threaded rivet that holds the lower plastic engine guard fell out. I pressed a large amount of this stuff into the hole and waited until it was mostly hard before tapping a new hole. The threads are holding tight and the guard hasn’t come loose. The other day i discovered my son’s door was sagging and discovered many stripped door hinge screws, courteous of the builder (about 3 years out of warranty). I cleaned out the holes as best i could and packed them with this epoxy putty. Again, before it fully hardened i drilled out pilot holes and lightly sunk in some screws.
I saved $250 dollars by buying this and repairing my 100 year old vintage lamp. The lamp had five breaks in the metal frame which supports the glass panels in the lamp shade. It was going to be a repair i could not afford. I decided to give it a shot and try this stuff. It hardens quickly like metal and it is easy to work with. I reinforced all the joints in the lamp shade with this stuff and the shade is ready for another 100 years. Great grandma would be happy.
I used it to repair a broken piece on my upright belt sander and it worked very well. The piece was cast aluminum and was in a difficult place to repair, but once i got the jb molded in to it and clamped, the jb worked.
Used jb weld steelstick to repair a pin hole in my stainless steel dishwasher tub. Repaired it on 5 oct 2017 and no leaks since. Saved me $800 on buying a new model of the same brand.
