Re: [bolger] Weldwood for Fillets
- I'm building a concrete canoe (it's just something civil engineers do
for fun!) and we're allowed to have "up to 25% binding agents other
than portland cement". I was using some Probond polyurethane glue,
and noticed the instructions say that it cures in the presence of
moisture, so I thought, "why not?". I mixed 3/4 lb. of cement with
1/4 lb. of Probond, then added enough water so it was easy to work
with. That stuff has set up harder than concrete...I'm going to mix
enough next time to make some cubes so I can bust them in the
compression machine. I'll let y'all know the results when I get them.
