GORILLA EPOXY

TOUGH, CLEAR, SERIOUS STRENGTH EPOXY

Gorilla takes epoxy to a new level—the Gorilla Tough level. With its superior solvent and water resistance, Gorilla Epoxy adhesive is incredibly strong and durable for household and automotive repairs alike. The easy-to-use syringe keeps the epoxy resin and hardener separate, so it is easy to dispense and won’t harden over time. The two-part, gap-filling formula easily bonds steel, aluminum, glass, wood, ceramic, tile and most plastics. Plus, it dries in an ideal, crystal-clear finish that makes projects look spotless.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Dries Clear: Ideal for clean, easy finishing
  • 5 Minute Set: Plenty of repositioning time for the perfect fit.
  • Gap-Filling: Fills voids and bonds uneven and vertical surfaces.
  • Water Resistant: Withstands moderate exposure to water
  • Solvent resistant
  • Non-Toxic once cured
  • Easy-to-use syringe: Separate barrels of epoxy resin and hardener keep epoxy from hardening, plus syringe dispenses evenly and includes a cap for multiple uses.
Safety Data Sheets

GORILLA EPOXY Directions

  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: It is recommended to use Gorilla Epoxy in a well-ventilated area. 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. Mixing Gorilla Epoxy
    Remove the black cap from the two syringes. With tip pointing upward, cut or snap the end from tip of the syringes. With the tip still pointing upward, eliminate air and ensure even dispensing by slowly pushing the plunger until both the resin and the hardener are at the tip

    IPush the plunger to dispense even amounts of resin and hardener onto a clean, disposable, contained surface. The package itself can be used as a mixing tray. If you flip the plastic 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 about 20 seconds, until the mixture 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.
     
  3. Application
    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.
     
  4. Clamping
    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 30 minutes undisturbed (no weight or handling)
    Final Cure: Allow 24 hours for load-bearing weight
    Storage: To close, pull plunger slightly back. Wipe tip clean with dry cloth and align notch on tip and cap. Close tightly.

GORILLA EPOXY®FAQs

Is Gorilla Epoxy gap filling?

Yes. Gorilla Epoxy is gap filling. It will fill voids and bond uneven and vertical surfaces. If filling gaps outdoors, note that Gorilla Epoxy may yellow over time with exposure to sunlight.

What is the shelf life? Are there storage tips to extend the shelf life?

Shelf life for Gorilla Epoxy is a maximum of two years. The adhesive is not activated until the resin and hardener come in contact with one another, so the 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.

What is the best application temperature?

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 180°F.

Do I need to use clamps with Gorilla Epoxy? How long?

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

Set Time: 5 minutes to mix, apply and position
Handling Time: Leave 30 minutes undisturbed (clamping is recommended)
Full Cure Time: 24 hours for load-bearing weight

How much Gorilla Epoxy do I apply?

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

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

What can I use as a mixing tray or stir stick?

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

What is Gorilla Epoxy?

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.

How do I remove Gorilla Epoxy?

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, or sanding.

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.

What surfaces will Gorilla Epoxy bond?

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

What surfaces will Gorilla Epoxy bond?

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®.

How do I dispense Gorilla Epoxy?

Make sure all surfaces are clean, dry and free of oil. To improve adhesion, roughen up smooth surfaces with sandpaper before gluing. Remove black cap from the middle of the plunger. With tip pointing upward, snap end from tip of syringe. Slowly push plunger until resin and hardener are at the tip, then dispense evenly. The package blister can be used as a mixing tray. Mix for at least 20 seconds until the mixture is uniform. Apply to surface within 5 minutes. Clamp surfaces together or leave undisturbed for 30 minutes. To close, pull plunger slightly back. Wipe syringe tip with a clean, dry cloth then snap the black cap on tightly.
