In the automotive service world there are several brands that are recognised immediately for quality and J-B Weld most certainly fits that bill.
The original twin pack epoxy was invented by a mechanic in the USA over 40 years ago. He was looking for a product that could be used where traditional welding was not an option.
In the USA, J-B Weld is recognised as high quality and has the slogan “World’s Strongest Bond”. Over the last few years the range of JB Weld products has grown to include Silicone, Super Weld, Putty Sticks, Thread Lockers and Specialty kits.
The product range of J-B Weld is now available in Australia and available from Repco, Burson Auto Parts, Auto 1 and most independent resellers.
For more than 40 years, J-B Weld products have earned a loyal and enthusiastic following from avid DIY’ers and repair professionals alike, offering a range of simple and affordable solutions that help just about anyone to take on small and large repairs throughout the workshop or home.
“Today, that same quality has been applied to over two dozen products, each customised to bond to a specific surface including steel, aluminium, SMC fiberglass, wood, plastic, glass, ceramic, carpet and more.”
By mixing equal parts resin and hardener, customers activate the epoxy adhesive, which will bond to just about any surface. Whether it’s J-B Weld’s traditional twin tube epoxies, putty sticks or syringe applicators, each product is specifically designed to provide the strongest bond in its class.
Products like ClearWeld and KwikWeld, dry in as little as five minutes and provide quick fixes to problems ranging from broken ceramics to metals and glass.
ClearWeld, with a syringe applicator and no-mess cap, dries clear.
J-B Weld added to their product range a selection of Silicone in both 85gram and cartridge. This is 100 per cent silicone and available in RTV (Acetoxy) and Ultimate (Oxime).
No workshop should be without SteelStik or WaterWeld in the toolbox. These two-part epoxy putty sticks can prove invaluable
in quick repairs – Waterweld offering the additional benefit of curing underwater.
For heavy duty repairs, original J-B Weld cold weld formula can withstand temperatures of over 280°C and like its companion, epoxy adhesive products can be machined, sanded, tapped, drilled or painted, providing limitless solutions for innovative repairs.
In the garage, kitchen, workshop or garden, J-B Weld consumers have used the products to fix common household leaks, cracks and breaks on items like washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, ovens, pipes, cabinets, floor tiles, counter tops, sinks, bathtubs, toilets, furniture, golf clubs, musical instruments, lawn mowers, water hoses and more.
The packaging has also been updated to comply to all Australian regulation packaging requirements and shows a strong presence on store displays to capture the trade and retail purchase.
“Being the first Australian company to distribute the entire range of J-B Weld products in Australia, we hope to offer our customers even more solutions for saving money. Whether you’re repairing a leaky sink or looking for an economical way to get a few more years out of that older model lawn mower, we believe J-B Weld products will be well-received by Australian DIY audiences.”
