Working time of about 2 minutes, caps don't fit well

By Ace Customer #5

from Washington, DC

About Me Budget Shopper

Comments about DEVOCON Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy (20845):

I went to my local Ace looking for a syringe of JB Weld quick-set epoxy. They only had Ace- and Devcon-brand epoxy, both of which seemed identical, with identical syringe/cap design (other than price).

JB Weld advertises itself as 5-minute epoxy, while this stuff says it's 10-minute epoxy, so I was expecting a longer working time. In reality, the working time with this is significantly less than the JB Weld, and less than 2 minutes after I stopped mixing it it started to set and change color to yellow. After less than 3 minutes the epoxy in the tray was a solid gummy mass. This was completely unexpected, and I had to mix up multiple small batches to complete my project (which took less than 10 minutes, total).

Like others, I had problems with the caps. If you simply snap off the caps as per the instructions, the caps will not firmly fit on the end of the syringe after use. I was able to pound them in with a bit of force, but the JB Weld solution is far better (especially since with JB Weld you insert the plug, then rotate the plug to lock it into place—a much more secure solution).

Devcon caps OK - DON'T CUT SO MUCH OFF THE TIPS

    Comments about DEVOCON Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy (20845):

    The caps work just fine - IF you look at the tips and cut just enugh to open them. Cut any further back and no, the caps no longer fit. The syringe style applicators all changed a while back so there is a faster taper to the dispenser ends, and the inside is tapered as well. Old dispensers had a long narrow internal section that could easily clog and prevent dispensing it product was left sitting around for months at a time.

    Glue works the same as it has since I started using it over 45 years ago. BUT Don't get it on anything cloth, it soaks in and you can't get it out.

    All Devcon Glues now with bad caps.

    By Bob J.

    Pros

    • It's Epoxy

    Cons

    • Single Use Applicators

      Comments about DEVOCON Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy (20845):

      I was astonished to find that all 2-part Ace and Devon glues which come in the duel plunger format, now no longer come with snap-on caps which allow you to save the extra glue that you don't use when you first open the thing. Although the text which comes with the glue mentions "snapping on the storage cap" the caps don't even pretend to stay on - you can lay the glue down on it's side and the cap just falls off on it's own, no matter how hard you try and pound the cap on. How Ace can sell all of it's plunger glues with this sort of cap is hard to say, but the nice thing is that you can use the glue on your job, and then return it for a refund. My Ace guy was happy to list my glue as "defective" and give me a refund, and I suspect yours will too.
