Superglue as sealant? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I personally would stay away from jb weld, its generally regarded as crap in every field I've ever been in. When I said 2 part Epoxy I meant something along the lines of this http://www.shop3m.com/62328714357.html?WT.mc_ev=clickthrough&WT.mc_id=shop3m-AtoZ-3M-Scotch-Weld-Two-Part-Epoxy-Adhesive

It comes in 2 parts usually a resin and a hardener, Don't worry about trying to find specifically 3m brand. An excellent place to find it, is RC (remote control) Hobby shops. It usually has about a 30 minute working time, so you would probably want to wait till it starts getting a little tacky before you apply it, that way it doesn't gp where you don't want it.

This is another option http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXPT46&P=0

you also might be able to find a tube that contains both the resin and hardener, but seperate and dispenses it at an equal right, some of the 3m products are like that.

Just read the directions, generally speaking the longer the curing time the stronger it will be in the end, So i'd look for a 30 minute epoxy which is generally the working/ set time and it takes about 8 hours after that to ..........

Obviously there are better quality epoxies out there. (I work for a 3M distributor) 3M is crazy expensive. But for an $8 part it will do just fine. Don't want to spend more on the repair than its worth. Also, something like your second suggestion would be fine. OP don't worry too much about brand. Mostly composition, and since it seems like youve had experience in these matters before, I'm sure you'll do fine.

Seriously though. I cant believe we are discussing "patching" a coolant leak. Even if for short fix. Just get a couple new fittings before you regret it. I know it sucks, but would you rather the leak damage you components. Could get worse before you catch it and "poof". Dead computer.
