11502RE: [Michalak] Re: Can of worms question....(long)
- Nov 1, 2005I think the rationale behind a boiling test is that it is 'accelerated',
rather than a reflection of real conditions.
I would say that a glue that passes a boil test is more likely to stand up
to years in damp conditions than one that didn't, but I haven't got the time
to do a 10 year programme of tests to find out for sure. Any info is better

Thanks for the link to that web site. The one problem i have with
boiling tests, is that a boat will never see boiling water. A soak test
is somewhat valid, but even using epoxy, a plywood boat will delaminate
very easily after long soaking. I would hope that a sandwich core
plywood boat covered in epoxy and fiberglass would never see that kind
of soaking problem. If it does, the old rule of thumb comes into play.
That rule is "from compost it came and to compost it shall return". :o)
