Gorilla Epoxy

Gorilla Epoxy is taking epoxy to the next level, the Gorilla Tough level. Gorilla's two-part epoxy is an Impact-Tough Formula, providing high impact resistance and strength to handle the toughest projects. Plus, it's fast! Gorilla Epoxy sets in 5 minutes and can be handled in 90 minutes.

Gorilla Epoxy's gap-filling capabilities and all purpose formula easily bond steel, wood, aluminum, ceramic and much more.

  • Impact-Tough Formula – hybrid technology improves overall adhesion strength and flexibility.
     
  • Gap Filling – fills voids and bonds uneven and vertical surfaces.
     
  • 5-Minute Set – plenty of repositioning time for the perfect fit.
     
  • Water Resistant – withstands moderate exposure to water.
     
  • Easy-to-Use Reusable Syringe – separate barrels of resin and hardener keep epoxy from hardening, plus syringe dispenses evenly and includes a cap for multiple uses.
     
  • Solvent Resistant – will not break down from exposure to common solvents.
     
  • Low VOC and Non-toxic Once Cured – safe for everyday handling.

1. Prepare Your Work Area and The Surface

If you’re using Gorilla Epoxy for the first time, or bonding a new type of material, we always recommend trying a test piece first.

Prepare your work area: Use of epoxy is recommended in a well ventilated area. You will want to be sure your work area is protected from spills. Gather your mixing tray and stir sticks so that all your supplies are together.

Prepare the surface: To improve adhesion, roughen smooth surfaces before gluing. Then clean and dry all surfaces to be bonded.

2. Applying Gorilla Epoxy

Mix It Up: Push plunger to dispense even amounts of resin and hardener onto a clean, disposable surface. The package blister can be used as a mixing tray. If you flip the blister shell over, you can use the small well as a starter dish to begin dispensing until both the resin and hardener are flowing equally. Once the flow is even, move to the larger mixing well to dispense your even ratio.

Mix the two parts for a few minutes, until the color is uniform. Apply within 5 minutes.

As you mix, you will notice that the epoxy warms up. This is a reaction that occurs as the resin and hardener combine.

Apply: After mixing is complete, apply Gorilla Epoxy within 5 minutes. The epoxy mixture will continue to thicken and the bond strength will decrease the longer you wait to apply.

Clamp: To reach maximum bond strength, clamp project together and leave undisturbed.

Important Cure Times

Set: 5 minutes to apply and position
Handling: Allow to cure for 90 minutes undisturbed (no weight or handling)
Final Cure: 100% in 24 hours for load bearing weight.

Storage: Wipe tip clean with dry cloth and align notch on tip and cap. Close tightly.

First Aid Information
 


Gorilla Epoxy is a two-part formula that requires equal parts of resin and hardener mixed together for activation. For best strength results, mix a 1-to-1 ratio of resin and hardener. Once mixed, Gorilla Epoxy is capable of bonding many materials and offers high strength results.

To begin, cut or snap cap from tip of syringe. It is recommended to remove the cap with the tip pointed upward so that no epoxy seaps out. Save the tip to close the syringe after use.

Once cap is removed, push plunger to dispense even amounts of resin and hardener onto a clean, disposable surface. Mix the two parts thoroughly until color is uniform. Now you're ready to apply to your project.

Gorilla Epoxy is very versatile. It boasts high strength results for steel, wood, aluminum, ceramic, tile, glass, pressure treated lumber, and much more!

A mixing tray and stir stick will be included in your Gorilla Epoxy package. Other ideas for mixing trays include aluminum foil trays, cardboard, paper or plastic plates, or wax paper. Stir stick ideas include popsicle sticks, plastic utensils or straws.

Gorilla Epoxy is a very strong adhesive. It does not take a lot to get a strong bond.

Average coverage from our 25mL epoxy syringe will cover 100 square inches.

Clamps are recommended for use during set up to ensure the bond sets correctly.

Gorilla Epoxy Key Times to Note

Set: 5 minutes to mix, apply and position
Handling: Leave 90 minutes undisturbed (clamping is recommended)
Full Cure: 100% cure in 24 hours for load bearing weight.

For best results, apply in room temperature situations. Application in cold temperatures will slow the cure time of Gorilla Epoxy, while application in hot temperatures can speed up the cure time.

Gorilla Epoxy's cured bond withstands temperatures ranging from -10° to 200 F°.

Gorilla Epoxy is a very strong adhesive and is solvent resistant. Removing dried adhesive is difficult to do. Acetone will soften the epoxy; however, full removal will require mechanical means, such as scraping, rubbing, sanding, or others.

Uncured Removal:
Skin: Acetone, Isopropyl Alcohol, 2-3 washings with soap and water. *Reminder: cured glue requires mechanical means, such as rubbing or washing with exfoliating soaps.
Hair: Isopropyl Alcohol
Clothes and Carpet: Isopropyl Alcohol. For clothes and carpet, avoid acetone, soap and water, and mineral spirits as they will not work well on fabric.

Yes. Gorilla Epoxy is gap filling. It will fill voids and bond uneven and vertical surfaces.

Shelf life for Gorilla Epoxy is a minimum of one year. The adhesive is not activated until the resin and hardener come in contact with one another, so shelf life is likely to be much longer if the epoxy tip is wiped clean after each use and the cap is securely replaced. Make sure you notice the notch on the cap and be sure to align that with the notch on the syringe tip. This will further ensure the two parts do not accidentally mix.

Gorilla Epoxy is water resistant, which means it will resist moderate exposure to water but should not be fully submerged. If you need an adhesive that is 100% waterproof check out our original Gorilla Glue.
 

For eye contact, wash with water for 15 minutes and call a physician for immediate medical advice

Gorilla Epoxy should be used in a well ventilated area. Inhalation may cause irritation to the nose, throat and respiratory tract. In the case of irritation, remove to fresh air.

or ingestion, seek medical attention immediately. Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Gorilla Epoxy is a very strong adhesive and is solvent resistant. Removing cured, dried adhesive is difficult to do. Acetone will soften the epoxy; however, full removal of cured adhesive will require mechanical means, such as scraping, rubbing, sanding, or others.

For dried adhesive removal on skin in particular, we recommend rubbing or washing area with exfoliating soaps.

For uncured adhesive removal from skin, we recommend acetone, isopropyl alcohol, or simply washing 2-3 times with soap and water.

Uncured Removal:
Skin: Acetone, Isopropyl Alcohol, 2-3 washings with soap and water. *Reminder: cured glue requires mechanical means, such as rubbing or washing with exfoliating soaps
