“Araldite” is an epoxy resin glue of the two pack variety.
Maybe “Araldite” is a proprietary product name here in Australia but not
in the USA. It comes in two types: One is a 5 minute hardening time, and
the other takes much longer (about 7 hours) to set, although the longer
curing time is supposed to make it much stronger.
The product is made by a company called Selleys Chemical Company which is
part of the Ciba Geigy chemicals empire. On my pack it says it’s made in
Australia and New Zealand, but I simply assumed that it was one of those
ubiquitous world economy products beloved by economic rationalists.
It comes in two tubes, a and b, and one simply squeezes out equal blobs
from each tube and mixes the two blobs together, and you have what is
known in the trade here as “the jeweller’s best friend”.
I am sure there must be an equivalent product in the USA.
Hope this helps, Nancy. Kind regards, Rex from Oz.
